Stories by Stan Lee and Larry Lieber.  Art by Steve Ditko and Jack Kirby.

 

From one of Marvel’s earliest reprint series, this comic includes stories from The Amazing Spider-Man #6 (the first appearance of the Lizard), Strange Tales #101Journey Into Mystery #84, and Tales to Astonish #38.  Great Silver-Age fun!

It’s interesting in these early Marvel comics how similar in style Jack Kirby’s art is to Steve Ditko’s.  Not sure if this was planned for continuity or if both artists were not yet ready to “break loose” with their respective, recognizable styles.
