Closing in on Amazing Spider-Man!

I have long had this Spider-Man fetish ( No! Really?) I have been reading his adventures since Amazing Fantasy #15 back in ‘62. Still, I didn’t really start aggressively purchasing comics until I reached High School (‘71 or thereabouts). I parted ways with the field in ‘95/‘96 for economic reasons (I found myself suddenly unemployed), and didn’t rejoining active collecting until 2001 (just before the first Spidey movie). Since that time I have been very intently and methodically filling in that gap. Well, this past weekend I moved significantly closer as I acquired ASM Vol. 2 #s 11, 20, and Annual ‘99.

A week or so back I scored ASM Vol. 2 #11 and a Wizard Spidey ashcan giveaway (Sensational Spider-Man)

This leaves me only ASM #431, ASM Vol. 2 #’s 19, 21, 22, 24, 25, and Annual ‘00 (seven issues) to finish off the the entire run of Amazing (I have to still have to do a count of the other titles to see how many I need to finish off all runs of all titles).

Needless to say, I’m very excited about all of this.

I’ll (naturally enough) keep you all posted.
