Just in time for Spider-Man’s 60th anniversary, revisit the month Spider-Man made his amazing debut in the Marvel: June 1962 Omnibus, arriving in June 2022.

Where were you in June of 1962? We know where Spider-Man was: making his historic debut in Amazing Fantasy #15. But that wasn’t the only thing that happened in that all-important month in Marvel history. Marvel: June 1962 Omnibus highlights these Marvel milestones including:

  •       Thor first held aloft the hammer Mjolnir.
  •       Hank Pym donned his cybernetic helmet, becoming Ant-Man.
  •       The FF squared off against Namor and Doctor Doom.
  •       Kid Colt mixed it up with the Circus of Crime.
  •       Millie the Model got mixed up in more Hanover hijinks.
  •       Patsy and Hedy worked on their frenemy-ship.
  •       Star-crossed lovers dealt with the ups and downs of romance, all while tales of horror and fantasy stories crept from the pages of titles like Strange Tales.
