“The Magazine That Respects Your Intelligence.” This mix of science fiction and fantasy stingers continues numbering from the first series of Amazing Adventures and differs from Marvel’s other anthology titles in that it features stories by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko exclusively. This, plus the illustrated contents page and Marvel’s earliest letters page, shows Lee’s obvious pride in his story-telling formula. All issues run four or five stories and are of equally classic quality. “The Icy Fingers Of Fear” in #7, “The Terror of Tim Boo Ba” in #9, “For The Rest Of Your Life” and the superb “Secret Of The Universe” in #11 are all highspots. “The Man In The Sky” from #14 introduces Lee’s concept of mutants, with several striking similarities with scenes in X-Men (1st Series) #1 a year or so later. The title changed to Amazing Fantasy for its famous final issue in which Spider-Man debuted. ~SW
