Amazing Spider-Man Magazine #1

Post by michaelyuri » Mon May 19, 2008 2:09 pm

Amazing Spider-Man Magazine #1 (2007) is composed of reprint material with the exception of one original Spider-Girl story. The cover and table of contents refer to this book as Spider-Man Magazine, but the indicia lists it as Amazing Spider-Man Magazine. The book isn't numbered, but apparently this issue is the first of four similar reprint books published in 2007-2008: http://www.spiderfan.org/comics/title/s ... ne_v2.html

The first three stories in the book are reprints from Marvel Adventures Spider-Man, Marvel Adventures Avengers, and Franklin Richards: Son of a Genius. The fourth story is a Spider-Girl story by Tom DeFalco. This five-page story is primarily prose, not a comic, however, it is illustrated with five individual panels. I'm not sure whether this story qualifies for an MCP listing, but assuming it does, here's an analysis:

"The Dance"
Story by Tom DeFalco
Art by Ron Lim, Scott Koblish, and Rob Ro

A brief synopsis of the story is available here:

The following characters are present in the story, but are not shown in the illustrations:

Continuity Notes:
This story takes place between ASG 13 & ASG 14. In ASG 13, Davida is elected school president, she and May discuss the upcoming dance, and May and Gene break up. In ASG 14, Gene is already dating Simone, and Davida asks May if there's something between her and Wes, which is probably a reference to the dance.
