Untold Tales of SpiderMan

Untold Tales of Spider-Man was published by Marvel Comics for 26 issues (#1-25, and a #Minus 1 between #s 22 and 23) from September, 1995 to October, 1997. Uniquely among those titles, Untold Tales' stories were retcons; they presented new stories set in Spider-Man's early super-hero career.

Each issue of Untold Tales of Spider-Man featured a single self contained story, though the book did have broad character arcs and subplots which developed throughout the series.

The title kept to a strong continuity, with the events in each issue taking place between specific stories from the first two years of The Amazing Spider-Man. As those stories were originally told in the early 1960s the title had a somewhat retro style in its depiction of the world around Spider-Man.

The series spotlighted Spider-Man's early interactions with established characters such as J. Jonah Jameson, the Human Torch, Betty Brant, Mary Jane Watson, the Vulture, Sandman and the Green Goblin. It also introduced a number of new characters into the Spider-man mythos, including The Scorcher, Bat-Wing, the Space-Men, Commanda and the Headsman.

Thanks for that, I always wondered if this was what Joe Q was talking about when he said that there had been a series set in ultimate universe before the ultimate imprint was created. do you think it's this?
