The Amazing Spider-Man (1963) #2 has two fast-paced Spider-Man stories that reveal so much more about his powers.

I think my favorite thing about this issue is that we learn so much about Parker and how he uses his Spider-Man powers. We get an inside look at his web-shooters, but we also see him problem solve when he runs out of webs.

I also really like that they are sticking with the two stories. It make the comic go by that much faster. I can’t imagine one of these stories being an entire issue.

However, I never realized just how selfish and immature Spider-Man is! In his battle against the vulture, he doesn’t go to fight the villain. He goes to take pictures and make money. I understand times are hard, but it’s just so different than all the other heroes of this time period.

There were more jokes in this one that went over my head. While I understood what it meant, they just weren’t funny to me, which is extremely disappointing. But like I said in the last review, I think they would have been funny when it was originally published.
