Untold Tales of Spider-Man is an American comic book series starring Spider-Man published by Marvel Comics for 26 issues (#1–25, with a #-1 issue (July 1997) added between issues #22 (June 1997) and 23 (August 1997)) and two Annuals (Annual '96 and Annual '97) from September 1995 to October 1997. The series was preceded by three Spider-Man flashback stories in Amazing Fantasy #16-18 (December 1995-March 1996). In February 1999, a one-shot issue called Untold Tales of Spider-Man: Strange Encounter was published. Finally, The Amazing Spider-Man Annual #37 (2010) featured another interconnected story that ended the series.

The series was part of an experiment for Marvel, where they published a number of new titles for only 99 cents in the hopes that they would attract new, young readers who might have been put off by the then-U.S.$1.50/$1.95 standard prices for comic books at the time.[citation needed] Uniquely among those titles, Untold Tales of Spider-Man presented new stories set in the early days of Spider-Man's superhero career.

The series was primarily written by Kurt Busiek and penciled by Pat Olliffe, though Roger Stern, Tom DeFalco, and Ron Frenz also contributed.
