Peter Parker was unleashed into the world in Amazing Fantasy #15, which had a cover date of August 1962. While the comic itself was published on August 10th of that year, fans have begun celebrating Spider-Man's many accomplishments on the first day of the month, paying tribute to the fictional accomplishments of the character and the ways in which he has reminded readers that, with great power comes great responsibility. This year's event might be one of the biggest yet for the character, thanks in large part to Spider-Man: Far From Home currently being in theaters and earning massive amounts of acclaim.
Both big brand accounts and personal pages have taken to Twitter to share their appreciation for the Wall-Crawler by posting personal memories, favorite character moments, or hilarious memes that honor Spider-Man.

apparently #SpiderManDay is a thing so this is a reminder that you should watch Into The Spider-Verse because it's the best Spider-Man film not close and possibly the best superhero film period pic.twitter.com/flY8nTDAFB— Evan (@survivorevan) August 1, 2019
