5.0 out of 5 stars A truly wonderful collaboration! 18 Feb 1999
By A Customer
This wonderful anthology has to be the best book produced by Marvel since the project was first launched sky high in 1994. What I think has made this book into a genuine success is because there are so many fantastically well written stories here and are really so palatable to read for any Spider-phile. Personally, "The Stalking of John Doe" is the finest Spider-Man story (and that includes all the Marvel novels I've read - definetely no hyperbole involved) produced and possibly more outstanding then any comic-story that Marvel have put together. Adam-Troy Castro should be bestowed some kind of Marvel-Oscar award for this terrific piece of literature. Other great tales include "Identity Crisis" - Norman Osborn's sinister endeavours to understand just exactly who is masquerading as Spider-Man, "The Liar" and "The Ballad of Fancy Dan" which are equally hilarious, the gruesome "Deadly Force" concerning an incredibly powerful serial killer, "Livewires" excellent and amusing tale of Max Dillon, better known as Electro being held in ESU for a daring experiment (regress you of Carnage in New York?) and also "Better Looting Through Modern Chemistry" which is a great tale involving the Looter conducting the obvious and Spider-Man dealing with him without any webbing. There you have it then. Just buy this book will you and agree with my notion on "The Stalking of John Doe" by putting forward your review.

5.0 out of 5 stars An astonishing book for all ages 14 Dec 1997
By A Customer
This book includes 15 different Spider-Man adventures. Each one with an astonishing villian and great storyline. Below I have listed the Title, my grade for the story, and a summary. Side by Side With the Astonishing Ant Man- B, This story takes place in fairly old Spider-Man comics and basically Manhatten is confronted with a giant spider inwhitch is latter found to be a machine and since Spider-Man has a bad reputation the Ant Man thinks he is behind it and accidentaly shrinks Spidey. To find out how he gets out of this you must read it. After the First Death- A-, Spider-Man stops a usual robbery but it then turns into something more. One of the two crooks ramed his brother of the ladge of the bank for years of neglect which sent him to his death. Spider-Man of course got blammed for this and police had a shoot first ask questions warrant on him. To find out how he gets out of this one read the book. Celebrity- C+, A villain know as the SandMan is leading a normal life and eating at a fancy resturaut whith his date when the Human Torch shows up. The Sandman's is so preoccupied with the Torch that the Sandman gets agrivated and attacks the torch. Spider-Man shows up and him and the Torch must duke it out with this shap shifting monster or die trying. Better Looting Through Modern Chemestry- A, A "reformed" crinimal known as the Looter is freed from jail but not much latter he once again breaks open a meteor and in hails the fumes inside which turn him into the Looter and goes on and briliant schem to steal a huge meteor. Read the book to find out what happens when Spidey gets involved. Identity Crisis- B-, The Green Goblin makes a short lasting attempt to find out who Spider-Man is underneth his mask. Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars what a fantastic anthology! 1 Feb 1999
By A Customer
This great anthology covers most of Spidey's career. The best story is "The Stalking of John Doe" by Adam-Troy Castro, which is one of the best Spider-Man stories ever written anywhere. You should buy this book just so you can read this story. Also really really good are the stories are by Tom DeFalco (who captures the early Spidey perfectly), Christopher Golden & Jose R. Nieto (great look at the Spidey/Torch relationship), John Garcia & Pierce Askegren (just a fun adventure story), Michael Jan Friedman (killer ending!), Ann Nocenti (deals with issues the comics _never_ deal with), Ken Grobe & Steven A. Roman (hilarious!), and Keith R.A. DeCandido (best Doc Ock story _ever_). The other stories are OK, too -- the only ones that really stink are Danny Fingeroth's stupid "The Doctor's Dilemma" and Glenn Greenberg's overwritten "Poison in the Soul."

5.0 out of 5 stars DREWSHI Rules! 20 April 1999
By A Customer
This edition features the first of what will be a long list of stories written by John S. Drew. Watch for his name in the future. He writes as though he's been writing the characters of Aunt May and Peter Parker all his life! His story is called "Moving Day," and it is the best in the collection.
