The upcoming release of action movie The Punisher will be marked with giveaways of a special reprint edition of AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #129.

The 1974 comic book - copies of which have sold for upwards of $900 (GBP500) - was the first to feature The Punisher as a mortal superhero who hunts Spider-Man.

The comics will be given out to each customer - compliments of LIONS GATE FILMS and MARVEL ENTERPRISES - at participating theatres while supplies last.
