Publication history

Astonishing Spider-Man The Astonishing SpiderMan Volume Comic Vine

Astonishing Spider-Man began in November 1995 after Panini Comics obtained Marvel UK's licence to reprint Marvel US's comics internationally. 150 issues were printed before it was re-launched in 2007 to mark its change from a 4-weekly publishing schedule to a 2-weekly one. Volume 2 went on for another two years before it was re-launched again in December 2009 to mark the start of the "Brand New Day" storyline. Volume 4 launched in October 2013 as the Superior Spider-Man run of stories begins in the title. Volume 6 is currently running.

Format

The current format is 76 pages, with three stories being printed every issue. Whilst it usually prints more modern story lines, ‘classic tales’ are also used as back-up strips. The front of the comic contains a message from the editor as well as a ‘Story so far’ section so the reader can catch up with anything they may have missed. At the back of the comic is a letter’s page (Web-Mail) whereby readers can write in and give their views and opinions on the stories. The letters page also used to print short comic strips called ‘Mini-Marvels’ (initially reprints of Chris Giarrusso's & Lew Stringer’s work), though it no longer does. A subscription is also available, for a cheaper price.
