Tony’s Collection #1: Amazing Spider-Man (1991) #611

Amazing Spider-Man (1991) #611

Tony’s Reaction (5/5) –

Oh man what a first comic book! This issue did not disappoint. After toying with the idea of getting into comic books, this only confirmed what I hoped to be true. This is obviously the reason why people read comics. Needless to stay, I’m here to stay!

So why did I choose this issue as my first comic book? Well, that’s a good question. You see, Deadpool and Spider-Man are probably my favorite Marvel characters alongside Ironman. After reading some blog posts and articles about where to jump into comic book reading I decided to search for issues related to these two characters.

I didn’t expect to find them both on the same cover so quickly. Once I found it, I had to have it

What I love about this comic is that you get the chance to see Deadpool’s personality right up next to Spider-Man’s. You get to see them go head to head, but Deadpool also pays respect to your friendly neighborhood spider.

Highlight –

My favorite part of this comic was getting the chance to see Deadpool’s thought process about fighting Spider-Man despite his obvious respect for the young superhero. As can be seen in the image below, he has quite the unique way of brainstorming. Without delay we get immediately introduced to Deadpool’s incredible personality.

Fun fact –

This comic book is the first appearance of Lady Stilt-Man.
