Untold Tales of Spiderman and X-men the Hidden Years.

Both of these series were so much fun the way they filled in the gaps of Marvel history and existed in the cracks.


Oooo...Untold Tales. Loved it!!! I remember when I was about 7, my uncle (who got me into collecting) was living at my grandmother's house. I stumbled upon his most recent comic stack and read Amazing Spider-Man #289 (Ned Leeds is Hobgoblin issue) that had a backup with a retelling of the origin of Spidey. It was an instant hook for me and I asked my uncle if he had earlier issues of Spidey. It was then that he showed me his collection, which dated back to #4. I spent that whole summer (and subsequent summers until I was ten, and then again when I was 14) leafing through all the back issues that he had and falling in love with the history of the characters, the strange titles that popped up, and the nostalgia. Untold Tales brought all of that original excitement back...and the fact that it was 99 cents just added to the hook.
