Do not judge a book by its cover, but it’s quite obvious from the cover image that the first issue of Detective Comics falls squarely into the Yellow peril genre.

It started to be one of the good series but later it lost the charm and so the readers.

This is where it all started, The Amazing fantasy is what that brought up a teenage superhero who could to the walls, Spider-Man. It details the hero’s origin. Stan Lee moved on after the story release and the character was forgotten but when the sales figure for the issue came back Lee’s editor demand that the Spider-Man get his own series and there you go, with the tones of volumes of Spider-Man comics and art by Steve Ditko that ties everything together, it works just as well today as it did in 1962.
