Because of this book we got Spiderman 3 0

Okay, just a quick word on his appearance on the big screen. How the hell can he actually cry a real tear. HE'S SAND!!! NO MOISTURE!!! Okay, back to the review, this is actually a good first appearance. The fight scenes were cool and exciting. The art dead on. Even the writing wasn't as stiff as it normally is. Of course I thought it was a bit silly that Spiderman beat the Sandman with .... Spoiler Alert!!!.... A vacume cleaner. Okay, once again, comics were more for kids in those days. Besid...

Nothing Can Stop The Sandman Is Right! 0

Yet another major villain introduced in the series and "Nothing Can Stop The Sandman" is the perfect tittle for this one as its the first look at this new, seemingly invincible villain, you just believe it! Liz, by the way, has been around since Amazing Fantasy #15, but this is the first time she is actually given a name and shows interest in peter parker. The Sandman is pretty cool and Ditko's drawings of the different shapes he assumes are great but the issue doesn't quite reach the heights of...

Spidey Gets Sand Kicked In His Face 0

The cover: 5 stars Okay, I know I said I hated word balloons on covers, but I just love this cover. When I first saw it I thought this was the coolest villain ever and couldn’t imagine how Spidey could ever beat this latest foe. Somehow Steve Ditko manages to convey a sense of mystery, surprise and helplessness on the cover … you just can’t wait to find out what happens. Nothing Can Stop … The Sandman (21 pages) For me this is the first issue that really hits the mark. Stan produces some of his ...

Another Spidey Foe Debuts 0

I have to admit this issue while being cheesey is good. Cheese isn't lame it's goofey and lame but it gets you to laugh.So we in this issue Peter breaking a date(more troubles) We get a villian beating Spidey and uh oh Spidey's mask torn(yay more problems). Of course we get Sandman's origion and it's still gamma and nuclear involved(not surprised)Then in this story Sandman hides in Peter's school by coincidence and wants his high school diploma? He didn't ask for it in the movie nor was he actua...

Nothing Can Stop The Sandman! 0

Opening with a blurb naming Spider-Man one of Marvel's quickest successes, it's surprising then that it took them three months to come up with a third issue, and makes you wonder if the big wigs wanted solid figures before they backed whatcould have been another Hulk-esque failure. Suffice it to say however, just as Lee gloats once more, Spider-Man is back in yet another thrilling episode as he does battle with what is touted as his toughest foe yet, The Sandman—a dude who can harness the power ...

Sandman's First Appearance 0

Issue four of The Amazing Spider-Man introduces another classic Spidey foe: Sandman. It's another full-length story like last issue. Unfortunately, the Spider-Man vs. Sandman story isn't quite as compelling as the Spider-Man vs. Doctor Octopus one. True, it does have some very inventive uses of Sandman's powers, and some dynamic panels by Steve Ditko (though not as dynamic as last issue). But it also has a lot of flaws too... Sandman evading the cops by disguising himself as a pile of sand (no, ...

Enter Sandman 0

How do you beat a villain that feels no pain, that can reshape himself into any form he chooses? How do you stop the unstoppable? That is the question Spider-Man must answer in this feature length issue as he battles the latest greatest villain from Marvel The Sandman!This book felt too long to me. The increased length of the issue seemed to come at the expense of decent pace. Almost every scene took a couple of panels more than it needed to, and in the sixties the writers were very keen to fill...
