I have no idea what’s happening in The Avengers nowadays. Thankfully, you don’t need that knowledge to appreciate this recent variant cover to The Avengers #59 by Mark Bagley, paying tribute to 900 issues of The Amazing Spider-Man. He’s one of the best Spidey artists of all time, so to see him drawing so many of the character’s various costumes from over the years is, to say the least, epic. We’ve got black suit Spider-Man, Scarlet Spider, Iron Spider, the Superior Spider-Man, just to name a few.

Amazing, indeed.

One of the back-up stories in this oversized 900th issue is about Peter Parker returning overdue books to the library. As the husband of a librarian, I appreciated that one.

Another back-up is about Spidey meeting Jimmy Kimmel. So there’s that.

This issue is filled to the brim with great work by great creators. But selfishly I gravitated toward Ed McGuinness, who draws the main story in his exaggerated and cartoony style. He gets to work on not only Spidey, but his supporting cast and several classic villains. This one is pricey, but worth it.
