Ultimate Spider-man for Ultimate Fun,
By A Customer
This review is from: Ultimate Spider-Man Volume 1 HC: v. 1 (Hardcover)
As an absent fan of Spider-man since the end of the seventies, early eighties, I became reacquainted with the introduction of the "Essential Spider-man" series reprinting all the stories I had read back in the sixties. With my appetite whetted I decided, with some trepidation, to try out this new "ULTIMATE SPIDER-MAN". By discarding the "past" and starting afresh, Marvel have succeeded in re-telling the Spider-man legend fit for the twenty-first century. A brilliant idea not only for attracting a new generation of fans but also for us "senior citizens" who were as old as Peter when it all began but now feel closer to aunt May! All the characters and elements are there that we are familiar with but set with a twist to keep readers intrigued and guessing, totally avoiding that sense of déjà vu! Very highly recommended and well worth the purchase.
This hardback edition with its 352 pages, is an omnibus edition of Volume one: "Power and Responsibility" and Volume 2: "Learning Curve"
