The annual issues of the superhero that brought back the hero comics!

Amazing Spider-Man Annual

After Amazing Fantasy was cancelled and turned into Spider-Man comics, the artists discovered they had just stumbled into a gold mine. Spidey was loved by the audience and they couldn’t get enough of his stories.

After issue #16, Stan Lee and Steve Ditko decided to publish a special edition that would be released annually. The volume 1 features the first group of supervillains that join forces to take down Spider-Man.

These stories were also a huge success and the annual edition of Spider-Man was religiously published each year, until 2018.

Story Synopsis

Dr. Octopus escapes from prison and gathers Vulture, Sandman, Kraven the Hunter, Mysterio and Electro, to form The Sinister Six and get revenge against Spider-Man. Peter finds out his Spidey powers are fading and tries to get home quickly in case someone should take advantage of his weakened state.

The Sinister Six kidnap Aunt May and Betty Brant (J. Jonah Jameson’s secretary). The Vulture leaves a message with Jameson for Peter, saying that every member of The Sinister Six is in a different location and he must face them all to find Aunt May and Betty.

Spider-Man faces every villain and the last one is Dr. Octopus, who’s holding May and Betty hostage. He beats Octopus and frees the pair, returning to them after becoming Peter Parker again. 

The Daily Bugle has to write an article about Spider-Man’s heroism and The Sinister Six are all locked up together.
