From the publisher:
IDW proudly presents GIL KANE’S THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN: ARTIST'S EDITION, collecting issues 96, 97, 98, 99, 100, 101, 102 and 121. Eight incredible Spider-Man stories, including some of the very best comics the wall crawler has ever appeared in: the infamous non comics code approved LSD drug issues, the "six-arm" Spider-Man storyline that also introduced Morbius for the very first time, and the classic of classics—The Night Gwen Stacy Died!
Nearly every page has been scanned from the original art at the same size Gil Kane drew it, and in color (to insure the best possible reproduction). This Artist's Edition measures 12 x 17 inches and is an extra-long 216 pages. Each book is shipped in a custom cardboard box for maximum protection.
Brought to you by the same team responsible for the Eisner Award-winning Dave Stevens' The Rocketeer: The Artist's Edition, as well as Wally Wood’s EC Stories: Artist’s Edition.
WHAT IS AN ARTIST’S EDITION?
AN ARTIST'S EDITION PRESENTS COMPLETE STORIES WITH EACH PAGE SCANNED FROM THE ACTUAL ORIGINAL ART.
While appearing to be in black and white, each page was scanned in color to mimic as closely as possible the experience of viewing the actual original art—for instance, corrections, blue pencils, paste-overs, all the little nuances that make original art unique. Each page is printed the same size as drawn, and the paper selected is as close as possible to the original art board.
