Heading to the theater to see The Amazing Spider-Man this week? Need something to read during the commercials and trailers? No? How about something to sit on to see over the tall guy in front of you?
Well you're in luck, because Marvel and Disney Publishing has just released The Amazing Spider-Man Storybook Collection.
You can find this handy, readable booster seat at your local bookstore or on Amazon. It features some great artwork by the likes of Craig Rousseau and Todd Nauck, and adapts many of Stan Lee and Steve Ditko's classic Spider-Man tales into a storybook format. For my part, I adapted the first appearance of Electro from The Amazing Spider-Man # 9 (February 1964). Some of the other writers include Scott Peterson, Bryan Q. Miller, Nachie Castro, Tomas Palacios, and Clarissa Wong.
And if you still have a craving for more Spidey reading, don't forget to check out my recent book for DK Publishing, Spider-Man: Inside the World of Your Friendly Neighborhood Hero.
Also, be sure to pre-order the exceptionally massive Spider-Man Chronicle: A Year by Year Visual History which should be heading to book stores in early October. Here's a glimpse of the impressive wrap-around cover:
If you sit on this one in the theater, you might get a few complaints from the people behind you. I mean, they did pay twelve dollars, and you're being a little rude.
