Untold Tales of Spider-Man is an American comic book series starring Spider-Man published by Marvel Comics for 26 issues (#1–25, and a #-1 issue between issues #22 and 23), and two Annuals from September 1995 to October 1997.

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

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