Spider-Man first appeared in issue #15 of the comic book Amazing Fantasy (Aug. 1962). The series was cancelled with that issue, but response to the character was so positive that the new title, The Amazing Spider-Man was launched, issue #1 appearing in March 1963.
The character was created by writer/editor Stan Lee and artist/co-writer Steve Ditko, and the pair produced 38 issues of Amazing from 1963 to 1966. Since then, many writers and artists have taken over the monthly comic over the years chronicling the adventures of Marvel's most identifiable hero.
Amazing Spider-Man is considered to be the “lead” Spider-Man title, as it was the first (and for many years, the only) regular Spider-Man comic, and it has been in print since 1963. Most of the major characters and villains of the Spider-Man saga were introduced in Amazing Spider-Man, and many (but not all) of the key events occurred in the title too. The title was published continuously until 1998 when Marvel Comics decided to begin it anew by renumbering the title with a new issue #1 published in January, 1999. In 2003 this new title reverted to using the numbering of the original series, at issue #500.
