TSA: The Amazing Spider-Man: Vol 1, Vol 2
by Nomad 88
is a Spider-Man fan fiction set in a new version of Marvel Universe that draws inspiration from all versions of the webslinger. This includes the comics (both original and Ultimate) and TV shows such as The Spectacular Spider-Man
and Spider-Man: The Animated Series
. It is now in the 1 million-word stage with another two volumes planned. It has the classic mix that all the best Spidey stories have: drama, romance, action, and comedy.
