I bought this book for my 5 year-old son's birthday because he loves Spider-Man and I was excited to find the comic strip type book which is difficult to find. Unfortunately, a few pages into the book, I realized it was not appropriate for kids. The dialog was about someone "just got outta prison". Obviously, these books are about "good guys" and "bad guys", but the tone was too dark and mature for young ears. They also had dialog around a pregnant women who might go into labor. This just isn't at a level for young kids. I would definitely not recommend this book to others.
