I've read better, as in superior spiderman, and blue.
Saying that though I would get it! It's a fantastic read for anyone.
If you're looking for something different to read and not sure what to go for as there is a lot out there.. For myself as I'm in my 20's what really stood out is "saga" definitely jump on it if you like the sci fi genre or truly fantastic artwork and story telling
Yet, Marvel decided to go ahead and bring out Marvel Knights: Spider-Man written by Mark Millar. Didn't sound like a bad idea given Millar's reputation.
Now, the story collected here in hardback format, is actually a trilogy of four-part stories that make up a twelve-part arc. In a nutshell, Spidey once again finds himself fighting the Green Goblin and this time manages to bring him down and send him to prison. You'd think that would mean Spidey would finally get the break he's been longing for. But as usual, it's a case of 'Fat Chance!'. Shortly after what could be viewed as his greatest triumph, Aunt May has been kidnapped and Peter finds himself caught between helping his arch-nemesis escape from prison, or letting his aunt die.
Needless to say, this is a typical Spider-Man story. His life goes down the toilet, bad guys won't relent, but somehow, someway, the web-slinger prevails, he gets praised as a hero by New York and everything's all right again. And there's absolutely nothing wrong with that. That's the essence of Spider-Man and that's why he's so appealing to millions of fans.
It's just given the fact that the other Spider-Man writers have broken new ground with their refreshing takes on the web-spinner, I've become accustomed to seeing something different.Read more ›
