Celebrating Spider-Man: Five Decades of Anniversary Covers

Preview

It's been 50 years since Spider-Man debuted in Amazing Fantasy #15, and Marvel has been marking the event all month long, with special issues and variant covers throughout their publishing line.

The crown jewel of the anniversary celebration hits this week, in the form of Amazing Spider-Man #692, on sale now. It's dubbed by Marvel the "one, true" anniversary issue celebrating their most beloved character, and features a main story by regular creative team Dan Slott and Humberto Ramos introducing a new sidekick character named Alpha along with back-up stories from industry standouts Dean Haspiel, Joshua Hale Fialkov and Nuno Plati.

Given the auspicious occasion, we've decided to take a look back at some memorable Spider-Man anniversary covers both years and big numbers throughout the decades. (Special thanks to the Spidey resources at samruby.com.)
