7 of 10 people found the following review helpful By Lawrance Bernabo HALL OF FAMEVINE VOICE on 27 Jun. 2004
Format: Paperback
Staring with issue #30 of Volume II of "The Amazing Spider-Man" Marvel started providing a smaller issue number reflecting what issue this would have been if it were still Volume I. The reason for this rather odd numbering became clear when lo and behold instead of issue #59 there was simple issue #500 of "The Amazing Spider-Man." That is why this trade paperback of "Amazing Spider-Man: Happy Birthday" contains issues #48-49 and #500-02. It only sounds confusing.
The first three issues comprise the "Happy Birthday" story by J. Michael Stracynski, artist John Romita, Jr. and inker Scott Hanna, with a touching epilogue by John Romita, Sr., who was the artist on "Spider-Man" when I bought my first issue (#62) way back when. It is Peter Parker's birthday and it is not off to a good start at school, but when he gets home Aunt May has some words of wisdom and Mary Jane has a different sort of comfort to offer. But then there are flashes of red lightning and that is never a good sign. When Spider-Man arrives in Time Square it is something of an understatement to say that all hell has broken lose.
Then things get worse.
Suffice it to say that Spider-Man plays a pivotal role in what is to happen and we get to learn about Shroedinger's Cat becomes unstuck in time. That is because when we get to an issue number with double zeroes at the end we must touch on key moments in the history of our hero, both past and future. Thus Spider-Man gets to consider both his moment of creation and the death that may well await him. Stracynski and Romita come up with a conceit that allows Spider-Man to fight pretty much every super villain he ever faced in an act of affirmation that allow for the changes necessary for a happy ending.
And because it is his birthday Spider-Man is given a gift.

It all came down to a betrayal? Story's done; time to start the next one. 21 Jan. 2007
By Irishbull - Published on
Format: Paperback
As with almost all of Spider-man stories I have found enjoyment and always looked forward to the next one.(I'm a longtime Spiderfan and easy to please). Ezekiel had always been a mysterious, almost immortal figure since popping in to Parker's life. This chapter sums it all up very well, but I was disappointed with the ending. It felt like everything in the last several books culminated to this chapter and now there doesn't feel like there is anything on the horizon for Spider-mans legacy or the Parker's family, although I know better. Perhaps Ezekial will be Peter's Obi-wan Kenobi in future issues. In a way it kinda seemed like J. Micheal Strac. was unexpectedly running out of pages and had to "wrap it" up. Still, I was very pleased I bought this one and it again as I do will the previous chapters (yes--I read them all in order too! LOL).

The Book of Ezekiel 29 Mar. 2009
By N. Davidson - Published on
Format: Paperback
One of the best installments in the Amazing Spider-man Series - I had been waiting a long time to get this, Ezekiel is one of the most loveable and enjoyable characters in the series and it was a nice touch to give him almost an entire volume to clear up the mysteries.

This book brings to light all of the strange paranormal happenings that Spidey had faced in previous volumes. The ending seems a bit rushed, and some fans will be left pretty depressed with the major turn in the story, but nonetheless it's a fun and gripping edition and totally worth the buy
I'm up to my webs in magical wackos... 7 Aug. 2013
By Jem - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I admit it. I bought this collection, one of only two Spider-man trades I own, to read about his encounter with Loki. I had seen panels of Spider-man and Loki eating hot dogs on a rooftop and HAD to know how that came about. It was well worth the effort to locate!

Though I came to the book for this one story, which opens the book, the rest of the collection naturally flows from it and makes sense. Spider-man has been encountering more than his usual share of "magical wackos" (Loki included) and the explanation is revealed herein. Though this is Volume 7 of Straczynski's Spider-man run, readers don't need to have read the previous books to follow the stories.

Spider-man and Dr. Strange accidentally unleash Morwen, a chaos sorcerer, from her prison. In Asgard, Loki senses that something is wrong, that it concerns him, and so he comes to New York to investigate. He and Spider-man must team up to save Loki's daughter, who Morwen has possessed. I love how Loki is characterized in this tale. He's not the traditional villain - he's a very powerful, immortal god who's disdainful of mere mortals. And has produced hundreds of children across the centuries because it's what Norse gods do! I laughed out loud when Spider-man asks if Morwen is evil like Loki, and Loki replies "I'm not evil, you vile little creature. I'm...complicated." In fact, the story was packed with humor as one would expect from the witty web-slinger. And the scene on the rooftop alone was worth the purchase of this book!

The subsequent stories all tell the tale of Ezekiel (he has powers just like Spider-man) and why he has come to NYC. How he got his powers has a direct impact on Spider-man and will put him and his loved ones in danger. The story is very well done, with suspense and twists.

Overall, I truly enjoyed this book. The story-telling was excellent and I thought the art was a great complement to it. I liked it enough that I am tempted to find the additional volumes - which are unfortunately out of print. Highly recommended.
A Reading From the Book of Ezekiel 6 Oct. 2014
By zombie phreak - Published on
Format: Paperback
I haven't read these comics in years. It was cool to see Ezekiel coming to NY and talking to Spidey and explaining to him that his powers may have not just been an accident in the lab that day. He was the only true predator in the room that day, and that is why the radioactive spider chose to bite him.

However at times the comic was just a bit too heavy on mystical explanations about things and it went on too long talking. I will admit that the artwork was really cool and I loved how well the characters were portrayed by this artist! Also Aunt May was really awesome. She was a supporting character but she made me laugh and she also helped the characters along as well.

If you manage to find a copy of this, I recommend you check it out!
Some Ezekiel stories...! 8 Jan. 2015
By Nicholas Assardo - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
While still a great book, I think my expectations were that the book covered the entirety of the Ezekiel story - not just an arc. That's my bad, I'm relatively unfamiliar with specific things in Comics and Graphic Novels. Having said that, the book itself was very good. I liked it quite a bit. John Romita Jr.'s Spider-Man is my all time favorite. He captures this beautiful light and vulnerability in Spider-Man and in New York. Do a little bit of research before you buy this book, but I enjoyed it as a fan of the hero without being too familiar with recent(ish) books.
