    My least favorite issue so far of Spider-Man. Two stories: story #1 was silly. A robot was programmed. No biggy. It was asked who the real identity of Spider-Man was. Peter was able to program it. Meanwhile, Flash picked on Peter again. They agreed to a boxing match to settle things. Two rogues tried to steal the robot-computer during the match. peter walloped Flash twice. The second time was just as Flash turned his head. Everyone cried. "Foul." Phooey. It was fine. Spider-Man takes on the runawa My least favorite issue so far of Spider-Man. Two stories: story #1 was silly. A robot was programmed. No biggy. It was asked who the real identity of Spider-Man was.

Spider-Man takes on the runaway robot that had been accidentally knocked thus sending it into chaos/killer mode. Yeah, okay. Spider-Man eventually foils it and the two rogues were arrested. Eh. The second story has Spider-Man crashing a party that the Human Torch attends. We get it, there is a rivalry, but Spider-Man instigated the whole episode. He even takes on the rest of the Fantastic Four. Bah! Boring. I will say, I love the language. "Blithely" was used. I would die to read that in a comic book today. Letters even were off this time out. Eight issues in and this has begun to drag? I hope it's just an off issue.

    AMAZING FANTASY 15, AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 1-10 (Spider-Man's First Arc) Peter Parker is easily one of the greatest creations in the history of comic books. Even if you threw out every other plot element besides the character himself, you'd still have a character story that deals with so much poignant emotional and psychological conflict.

Even if you threw out every other plot element besides the character himself, you'd still have a character story that deals with so much poignant emotional and psychological conflict. The dialogue is what really makes this. Stan Lee divides Peter Parker's dialogue into 3 distinct styles: Peter Parker's thoughts, Peter Parker's words, and Spider-Man's words. This structure says a lot about our protagonist; Peter Parker's words are presented in a very introverted and articulate manner. Spider-Man's words, conversely, are presented in a very extroverted and sarcastic manner. This presents the central conflict of the character, in that Spider-Man is a cathartic part of Peter's psychology; he is everything Peter is afraid to be, but can be behind the security blanket of a mask. The only truth to the character is his thoughts, as he tightly controls the presentation of Peter Parker to hide suspicion he could be Spider-Man. This plays even further into the notion of Spider-Man being a cathartic release for him, in that his thoughts are designed as this fusion of Peter's intellect and Spider-Man's wit. Peter Parker's spoken words lack much of the wit which is present in his own thoughts. Spider-Man presents all of that wit, because he has more freedom to do so; behind the security blanket of a mask, there's less consequence. And this plays into the deeper theme, of "Great Responsibility" coming with "Great Power." Because there is no physical consequence to himself. But his choice of how he uses this newfound freedom and newfound power has consequences for others... which, as iconic as they are, I won't dare spoil here. These consequences affect his romantic equal Betty Brant, his loyal to a fault Aunt May, the think-tank editor J. Jonah Jameson, or the city of New York as a whole and its perception of him; even if these consequences don't necessarily affect him directly, they still create a whole plate of intimate character conflicts that have nothing to do with spandex villains. The villains simply create a plot of his actions, where these ongoing conflicts resulting from his actions are his character evolution.

    ASM #8 contains two tales: "The Terrible Threat of The Living Brain!" A company brings in a new robotic computer called the Living Brain to school for a demo, where Peter insults Flash Thompson's intelligence and a brief fight ensues. Their teacher, Mr Warren, suggests that they settle this inside of the boxing ring (what kind of school is this?!) where predictably Parker knocks Flash out. During this match the b story is two thieves try to steal the Living Brain which goes on a rampage and Spid ASM #8 contains two tales: "The Terrible Threat of The Living Brain!" A company brings in a new robotic computer called the Living Brain to school for a demo, where Peter insults Flash Thompson's intelligence and a brief fight ensues. Their teacher, Mr Warren, suggests that they settle this inside of the boxing ring (what kind of school is this?!) where predictably Parker knocks Flash out. During this match the b story is two thieves try to steal the Living Brain which goes on a rampage and Spider-Man shows up (in the school, again, it could not be more obvious that a pupil could be Spider-Man, Parker cleverly points the finger at Flash - the alternative is that Spider-Man is a creepy dude who is always stalking the school out!). "Spider-Man Tackles the Torch!" (drawn by Jack Kirby inked by Ditko) Spider-Man has a minor squabble with Johnny Storm aka the Human Torch as Spidey gate-crashes Johnny's girlfriend. Spidey knocks out another dated joke "Who writes your dialogue, Frank Merriwell" (I don't mind admitting I had to google that one), the rest of the FF turn up, Spidey calms down and calls it quits. Two non-essential tales in the ASM canon, though the second strip does establish the competition between the Torch and Spidey that continues to this day. Firsts; The Living Brain appearance. Who notably is brought back into the series by Dan Slott in later issues of ASM.

    Sudah dari dulu manusia takut kalau mesin dan komputer akan bisa 'hidup' dan 'berpikir sendiri' lalu mengancam manusia pembuatnya. Ini tema komik Amazing Spider-Man no. 8 yang terbit tahun 1964. Tapi jangan bayangkan ancaman kecerdasan buatan itu akan berupa otak komputer secanggih SkyNet di Terminator yang bisa menguasai semua jenis mesin dan jaringan komputer. Di komik ini musuh Spider-Man barangkali bisa disebut nenek moyang AI jaman kiwari: masih berupa robot dengan roda di kakinya, jari tan Sudah dari dulu manusia takut kalau mesin dan komputer akan bisa 'hidup' dan 'berpikir sendiri' lalu mengancam manusia pembuatnya. Ini tema komik Amazing Spider-Man no. 8 yang terbit tahun 1964. Tapi jangan bayangkan ancaman kecerdasan buatan itu akan berupa otak komputer secanggih SkyNet di Terminator yang bisa menguasai semua jenis mesin dan jaringan komputer. Di komik ini musuh Spider-Man barangkali bisa disebut nenek moyang AI jaman kiwari: masih berupa robot dengan roda di kakinya, jari tangannya tiga, dan belum bisa ngomong. Ia memang bisa menjawab apa pun tapi dengan catatan kita harus menginput manual data-data yang ada. Jawabannya adalah berupa tulisan kode di secarik kertas yang mirip dengan struk belanja di toko swalayan. Tidak apa-apa, yang penting dia bisa 'mengamuk'. Cerita yang menarik justru tentang adu tinju antara Peter Parker dengan Flash Thompson, teman sekolahnya yang suka mengejek dirinya. Bisakah Peter menahan tenaga superheronya agar identitasnya sebagai Spider-Man tidak ketahuan?

    Molto apprezzata la prima storia, in cui Peter di fatto "mette a posto" il bullo che lo tormenta ma al contempo mantiene lo "status quo" di loser nerd da bullizzare. La seconda storia in cui fa a botte con la Torcia Umana non l'ho capita, sinceramente. Questi si menano ma poi arriva la Donna Invisibile e tutti amici come prima? Seriamente, zio Stan?

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. [2,5] This issue was a bit tedious to read, I'm definitely not a fan of this fight. Was nice to see Flash being knocked out though. [2,5] This issue was a bit tedious to read, I'm definitely not a fan of this fight. Was nice to see Flash being knocked out though.

    March 2016 *Single Issue* I don't know how I feel about this issue. The Living Brain was interesting because Peter really had to think about everything he did in order to defeat him but the short comic story at the end with the Torch wasn't fun, I don't really understand why Spidey thought that was a good idea.
