The Amazing Spider-Man Pop-Up Book Review
Spider-Man is back - and this time in 3-D! Check out this Spidey pop-up book, featuring real comic strip excerpts.
A new series of pop-up comics features all of your fave Marvel comic book heroes (and villains) in 3-D form. Book one follows Peter Parker as he turns into one of the greatest superheroes of our time - Spiderman!
The LegendPeter Parker is an intelligent but bullied orphan living with his aunt and uncle when he's bitten by a radioactive spider at a school demonstration. He soon realizes that he has gained spider-like abilities and dons a disguise so he can flex his super-skills anonymously. The Amazing Spider-Man Pop-Up has all the background info you could want on the webbed-one, including how he got his name, and what terrible crime lead him to become the hero that we know and love.
This book doesn't just focus on Spider-Man himself, it also gives you the story behind classic Marvel villains too. Get the goods on The Green Goblin, Doc Ock, Vulture, Electro, Kraven, Mysterio and The Sandman! Each character has a pull-out fact file card that gives you the characters vital stats - such as height, weight, powers and when the character first appeared in Marvel comics. You can't call yourself a true fan unless you know this stuff!
The Bottom Line
The Amazing Spider-Man Pop-Up has all the old-school comic book styling you love, with a modern three-dimensional twist! The illustrations are vibrant and amazingly detailed, and the pop-ups really bring the action to life. Spiderman's story is cleverly blended into each of the distinct character profiles - so you can read each individually, or the book from front to back to get Spider-Man's whole story. It's Spider-Man-tastic!
