It's got a fun title - My Friends Can Beat Up Your Friends - but Avenging Spider-man is a strangely maudlin book. This is Spider-man's team-up series where he gets paired with another character and has an adventure with them. In this book it's Red Hulk, Hawkeye, and Captain America respectively.

The Spider-man/Red Hulk storyline takes up the first three issues and is unfortunately the worst of the bunch. Mayor Jameson gets captured by some moloids and is dragged beneath New York City where it turns out Moleman has been usurped by a whole new group of tough guy monsters who have enslaved the moloids. Middle middle middle, Spider-man saves the day in a jokey way. I won't go into plot particulars but this really didn't need to be three issues given the sparse content. Plus Red Hulk is kind of a dick so the less I see of him, the better.

The Hawkeye story is strangely sad. Hawkeye's deeply insecure being a non-super-powered human on a team of gods, monsters, and assorted super-powered heroes so spends all of his time practicing on being the best shot in the world. Spidey does something nice for him at the end despite Hawkeye being kind of a dick himself, overcompensating on confidence because he's not confident. It's an ok story I guess...

The best story in the book is Spidey/Captain America. Spidey finds out that Cap, before he became Cap and was still weedy Steve Rogers, wanted to be a comics illustrator. Spidey tries to get Cap back into it so the two can come up with characters and start making comics together for a lark. This was the best story because it does a lot of things in a short space.

Avenging Spider-Man is a fun, colourful and an exciting blast to the senses!

With the classic 'Avengers' team, as well as a few others, Avenging Spider-Man holds a strong story and unique cartoon style, it is deep and shallow at all the right places, staying true to the links and characters that many of us know and love from the Amazing Spider-Man comics, cartoons and films.

An enjoyable read, I look forward to the next instalment, not too far away now!

Avenging Spider-Man is essentially a spiritual reboot of the Marvel Team Ups comics, the difference being this time it revolves entirely around Spider-Man's team ups with other Marvel stars. The first story in which Spider-Man and Red Hulk to save The Mole Man and New York is terrific. The art is some of the best stylised art I have ever seen and is a perfect fit for Spider-Man. The writing is equally awesome, balancing action and comedy expertly, making for a superbly entertaining read. Unfortunately, the other stories don't quite match, especially the Captain America one which was pretty poor, the humor didn't work at all and the art was boring.

Thoroughly enjoyed this book. Loved the artwork, and loved the writing. The stories made me laugh, and the three issue start with Red Hulk had nice depth.

Love the art work and the ideas of Spider man being in a leadship role. The rest of the book that was done by the other artist was o.k. but you can be the judge of that. Madureira was my sole reason for buying the book he definatly knows how to impress. His stylized art, composition, he is the man!

HASH(0x94f6599c) out of 5 stars Good Writing By Wells; Art... Well, Not So Much 26 Aug. 2013
By William Kendall - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Zeb Wells starts out as the writer for this companion Spider-Man series, which at its start showcased the wall crawler and some of his fellow Avengers. Wells has a good handle on characters, particularly how they relate to each other. It's the art in this set that can be grating. The first three issues have art by Joe Madureira, an artist who for some inexplicable reason seems to have a fan base. His style is messy and inconsistent. The Hawkeye issue features work by Greg Land, who has a reputation in the industry for drawing as if his primary inspiration is imagery from adult entertainment.
