Marvel Comics presents The Amazing Spider-Man Issue 17, titled The Return of the Green Goblin. This issue was originally published in October 1964, written by Stan Lee with art by Steve Ditko, two of Marvel’s early creative pioneers. This comic book is a collector’s item for Spider-Man fans of all ages. This issue of The Amazing Spider-Man kicks off with school bully Flash Thompson announcing that he’s starting a Spider-Man fan club — and Peter Parker can’t join. Peter heads home and notices some shady characters who look like they’re making a getaway of some sort, so he jumps into Spider-Man mode and finds that he’s spoiled a movie shoot. The Daily Bugle mocks Spider-Man’s gaffe. Later that week, Peter is on his way home when a woman tells him that Spider-Man is slated to appear at Flash’s fan club meeting. That’s news to Peter, but Flash had figured if he put that on a flyer and made sure it got around, Spidey would see it, and wouldn’t want to disappoint his fans. Peter agrees, and decides Spider-Man will have to make an appearance, risky though it may be (he doesn’t want to reveal his identity). So Spidey arrives, and as he does, his web is snapped. Acrobatic maneuvers save his life. The Green Goblin saw the flyers, too, and when they reveal Spider-Man would be there, he shows up to battle Spidey. The fans think it’s all part of the show, but the Green Goblin quickly proves he’s not there for games. Johnny Storm — Human Torch from the Fantastic Four — is there and helps Spider-Man fight Green Goblin. Spidey, however, has other problems. During the fight, he learns that Aunt May is in the hospital. He runs off to help her and leaves Human Torch to fight the Goblin. As if Spidey didn’t have enough image problems at the moment, his fan club has now deduced that Spider-Man is a coward because he leaves the fight. It seems that Peter Parker just can’t catch a break. The recent box-office success of Marvel’s superhero movies, including the recent Spider-Man films where he takes on the likes of Electro, means that comic books are big business these days, and Marvel’s comics and videos are at the center of that enterprise. In fact, The Amazing Spider-Man comics still carry on the Spider-Verse today, with a new series written by Dan Slott with artists including Giuseppe Camuncoli, R.B. Silva, and Marte Gracia. From The Avengers movies to TV shows on Netflix, Marvel’s universe of stories and characters is very much a part of America’s current cultural zeitgeist, and that demand helps bring people to Marvel’s comics, both collector’s issues, like this, and more modern titles. This title is a piece of Marvel comics history, as it has writer Stan Lee’s memorable characters on display, and The Amazing Spider-Man Issue 17 would be at home in any serious comic collection.
