Editorial Reviews

There is something about Spidee that sticks. Peter Parker is climbing walls and singing songs on Broadway and next year the eagerly awaited third Spider-Man film will hit thousands of screens across the world. Until then, fans of the self-doubting superhero will be able to feast their fantasies on this giant interactive hardcover. This handsome hardcover contains a detailed illustrated biography of the web-slinger as he has developed over the decades; never-seen-before sketches, artwork, and approximately 20 removable features, all housed in protective plastic pages. An instant collectible.
