TOP 50 REVIEWERon 13 August 2013
The stories running through issues #589-594 of Amazing Spider-Man are collected, along with a couple of short stories from Amazing Spider Man Extra #2 and #3, as Spider-Man: 24/7 TPB (Graphic Novel Pb). These are very much `Spider-Man Family' stories, in that what is important here is the interaction of Spider-Man and Peter Parker with his family, friends and J. Jonah Jameson. There are super-villains about, cross-dimensional adventures with the Fantastic Four, and Spidey's greatest foe becomes Mayor of New York, but it is the people stuff that is the dominant theme here. This is all helped along by the usual excellent scripting and superb artwork.

THE SPOILER ZONE
THE SPOILER ZONE
THE SPOILER ZONE

Amazing Spider Man Extra #3: "Loose Ends" is an 8-page story following up on Marvel's own Hit Girl, Ms Kraven after the events of Kraven's First Hunt.

Issue #589: "Marked" sees the return of whacky villain the Spot, who is now killing off mobsters in revenge for a spoiler, with Spidey trying to keep one or two alive to testify in court, as this particular gang have crossed Aunt May, and Spidey has vowed to avenge the annoyance caused to his family, by making Christian Bale jokes and stealing Batman quotes; "Criminals are indeed a superstitious, cowardly lot. Hope I don't get sued for that--"

Amazing Spider Man Extra #2: "Birthday Boy" is an 18-page story which sees Spidey called out to a team-up with Wolverine on a mysterious mission: "you're a good guy. And you're dumb enough to think that I am too."

Issue #590-591: "Face Front" is an adventure with the Fantastic Four, which is easy enough to understand but difficult to explain. It starts with a flashback to a trip to another dimension made "a couple years ago", when the FF knew Spidey was Peter Parker - and the splash page with the five of them posing for a holiday photo in their space-suits, with Peter unmasked in his Spidey-spacesuit sort of sums up his relationship with the FF, where he can just be Peter Parker even when he's working. Anyway, they save some people in this dimension, as they do, and then go home. In the present the FF get a distress call from that dimension, and call in Spider-Man to go with them answer it. Pete tells everyone that he's off on a camping trip with an old college professor and his family, so no-one will miss him. When they get to their destination, they discover that time has been running faster there than on earth, and thy find that since their first visit, the people they saved have built statues of them, and the Spidey one has no mask (though fortunately it has been eroded enough to be unrecognisable). Johnny realises that something has happened to make everyone forget who Spidey is, and he's not at all happy about it. Reed tries to brush it all aside, but Johnny is mortally offended because of their long relationship. There is a battle to help the aliens they recued the last time they were there with invaders while all this is going on, which is eventually resolved, but, due to the increased time differential since they were last there two months will have passed on Earth, which we see in odd panels, as Harry falls off the wagon and Carlie helps him back on, the Mayoral election is void and there are various dodgy candidates put forward, Jonah Jameson woos his wife back, and Jay Jameson woos Aunt May. Anyway, at the end of the day, the FF's arguments about family ties win out, and Spider-Man unmasks, and the FF's memories are restored: "Hi Pete. Long time no see". The real shocker comes on their return, when Spider-Man discovers that his greatest foe has become Mayor of New York

Issue #592-594: "24/7" sees Spider-Man, after Mayor Jameson creates an anti-Spider-Man SWAT team to hunt him down, vow to ruin his life by being in the newspapers 24/7 working full time as a hero (everyone still thinking Peter Parker is still off on holiday, of course). In the background a new Vulture is terrorising criminals, and Peter Parker discovers that he has Vin's sister as a new landlady, and that Aunt May has a new boyfriend in Jay Jameson. However, the Parker luck wins out, and after a fight with the Vulture that stops an important baseball game, Spidey's standing in New Yorker's estimation hits rock bottom.

I'm a fairly new fan of Spiderman - been collecting the books for around a year now and they just keep getting better and better. This era has the balance between 'soap opera', humour and action just about right.
