Base Level: No Spider-Man

The second volume of Amazing Fantasy was launched back in the Summer of 2004. Playing on its obvious links to Spider-Man, it launched a new Spidey- related spin-off character into the Marvel Universe: Araña. The first arc lasted six issues after which Araña was spun off into her own title. Amazing Fantasy continued as a spotlight for new (or revamped) Marvel characters with rotating creative teams. We only reviewed the issues with a direct link to the webslinger. The title was cancelled with issue #20.
