The Ditko era ends here, sadly with a whimper and not a bang. Ditko's peak as Spider-Man's artists ends with issue 37 but issue 38 is his swansong with a half-baked story that shows he was obviously on the way out. Even that issue's original cover was simply a collage of panels from the story itself because Ditko left Marvel before drawing a proper one. Curiously this cover is used as the cover to this volume - with a half dozen classic covers from issues 31-40 why this one was used is anyone's guess. I would have gone for the cover to issue 33.Ditko manages some significant progress before he bows out though, putting Peter Parker into college with Flash Thompson as a continuing thorn in his side and introducing 2 major new characters, Harry Osborne and the ill-fated Gwen Stacy.With Ditko gone, the changes come thick and fast. John Romita (Sr) steps into the breech having had a trial run doing a Spider-Man guest appearance in Daredevil and immediately clears the decks of Ditko's ideas by revealing the true identity of the Green Goblin. Controversy rages to this day whether Ditko would have unmasked someone else as the Goblin but Romita's 2 part debut remains a classic.

The best of Ditko from #31 to #37, with the sad departure after #38. The return of Doc Ock, Kraven, and Molten Man and the introduction of The Looter and the Rampaging Robots, ending with Just a Guy Named Joe. Then the introduction of John Romita with the return of the Green Goblin in #39 and #40. A must have for the hard core collector.

This was the best Marvel Masterwork! It finally showed us the identity of the Green Goblin! I also liked how Peter started collage and everybody's 1st impression of him. It is an expensive book, but try to get it. it's great!

This is one amazing book. First, it's the best of the four SpiderMan Masterworks I think; it has some really great comics in it. The paper (as with all the Masterworks series) is excellent, the best I have seen in the dozens of graphic novels I have. It makes reading a lot more fun. It also is quite a good value, hundreds of full color pages. You can pick up these books in any order you want, you really don't need to buy 1, then 2, etc to enjoy them. Check out SpiderMan in the early years, it's hard to be disappointed.
