Much of Spider-Man's appeal has always lain in the ongoing struggles of his alter ego Peter Parker. For Petey, making a living and maintaining relationships has always been as hard, if not harder, than overcoming powerful super-villains. This collection brings together a dozen stories from the early 1980s when Peter Parker was working as a Grad Student at Empire State University. This enables writer Roger Stern to flesh things out with a cast of supporting characters who provide humour and romance. The action is provided by face-offs with classic Spidey villains The Vulture and Mysterio. Added to the mix are Stern's own creations most notably the femme fatale Belladonna. As an added bonus there is a crossover mini-series with The White Tiger.
Overall this volume makes for an entertaining and worthwhile read.

Not the best art, but the stories make up for it 4 May 2007
By Babytoxie - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I had not planned on purchasing SPIDER-MAN VISIONARIES: ROGER STERN VOLUME 1 when it was released; however, when the book I did purchase turned out to be such a turkey, I immediately returned to the store to buy it. The result was a very happy reader. I can't figure out what inspired Marvel to release this book, but I'm glad they did, as I really enjoyed these fun Spidey stories. Although hampered by some art of questionable quality, the writing is very good, and while there are a couple of overarching threads, the tales are kept to one or two issues as opposed to the seemingly never-ending narratives of today. There's a very loose style running through the stories, almost as if Stan Lee were looking over Stern's shoulder. Collecting Amazing S-M #206 and Spectacular S-M #43-52 & 54, this book does contain an issue written by Marv Wolfman, but this is done simply to provide the reader with a complete story, as a two-parter was split between writers.

John Byrne, Mike Zeck, Steve Leialoha, Jim Mooney, and others provide the art, which, as I mentioned earlier, is not the best part of this book. Overall, it just looks uninspired, though Marie Severin's work does tend to hearken back to the style of sturdy Steve Ditko, even including backgrounds and bystanders that look straight out of the '60s (and as these stories are set in the '80s, it's just that much more quirky).

This time around, Spidey is up against Belladonna, the Vulture, the Prowler, the Smuggler, Mysterio, a roomful of aliens, and an abundance of gas. Gas, gas, gas... what's with all the gas? Anyway, as I said, this seemed like an odd choice for a collection, but Marvel seems to know what they were doing.

A great collection. 26 Nov. 2014
By Patrick Correa - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I got this primarily because it was cheap, but it turned out to be an above average collection. The angst wasn't as bad as in some periods of the comic, and it had several very memorable stories. Overall, I'm very glad I got this.
