Why Amazing Spider-Man 6 is a Key Issue Comic

The great thing about the Amazing Spider-Man series is that it’s down to earth, casual, and can be read by anyone.

The same can (mostly) be said about the major Spider-Man villains, who are much more faceted and interesting than typical bad guys.

Offering a compelling take on Doctor Jekyll / Mr. Hyde, Amazing Spider-Man 6 introduces us to The Lizard for the first time.

Rising up to a challenge issued by Daily Bugle editor Jonah Jameson, Spider-Man travels to Florida to investigate claims of a Lizard man.

There, Spider-Man learns that The Lizard is actually a scientist, Curt Connors, who was working on a serum to regrow human limbs. Testing it on himself, Connors becomes a violent and uncontrollable menace.

Spider-Man develops an antidote to The Lizard’s problems and cures him (for a while).

Guide to Amazing Spider-Man 6 Comic Book Values

The Spider-Man Lizard is so popular, he was featured in three different Spider-Man movies. Could he come back in the next Spider-Man reboot?

Even if we have had all the Spider-Man Lizard movie appearances we're ever going to get, this comic book will always be in demand.

Amazing Spider-Man comic books are the world's most collected, and early issues have appreciated in value hugely in recent years.
