Another essential Bronze Age Spidey collection is coming in 2024…
You can never have too early a head start: Marvel is planning another important Bronze Age Spider-Man Epic Collection — for May 2024.
Details are scarce — it’s not even on Amazon yet — but check out the basics, thanks to the fine folks at the Epic Marvel Podcast:
AMAZING SPIDER-MAN EPIC COLLECTION: BIG APPLE BATTLEGROUND
— Amazing Spider-Man (1963) #165-185
— Amazing Spider-Man Annual (1964) #11-12
— Nova (1977) #12
— Marvel Calendar 1978
— Plus, material from Marvel Treasury Edition (1974) #14 and FOOM (1973) #17-18, 22
— There’s no exact release date or price yet, but if the Epic Marvel Podcast reports an Epic Collection is coming, you can bank on it. This is their forte.
— The cover has not been released yet, so the above cover is a placeholder. Still, I expect the final imagery to be drawn from it.
— I am really looking forward to this one and Spider-Man or Spider-Clone, coming in July 2023. I have read everything up to Issue #142, so I eagerly await extending that personal run. The book is mostly a Len Wein/Ross Andru joint, but the start of Marv Wolfman’s run also begins here — including Peter Parker’s college graduation in Issue #185.
— I do have the 1978 Marvel Calendar and it features terrific art. It’s all Spidey and it’s cool to see it included. Plus, FOOM!

Couldn’t agree more on the 1978 calendar. Hmm, not familiar with the FOOM material.
