Format: Hardcover
Following from the event that was the Civil War, Spider Man is forced to make important decisions that will, in the end, change not only his story, but his character forever. With no money to pay for the treatment Aunt May needs and the Trauma from being the Cause of her injury, Peter goes back to black. He does this to symbolise what he now stands for, and what he is prepared to do to help is Aunt.

The story for back in black is not only one of my favourite but one of the best I have ever read. Marvel really do their best to capture the fall of Spider Man, and show clearly the emotion he is feeling. This is pulled off magnificently. His acts of violence and brutality towards his attackers are made clear with some of the best illustrations in any Spider Man book. Within Back in Black are the most iconic images of Spider Man you are likely to see. One example is Spider Man in his new Black suit sitting atop of a church with rain falling and lightning striking.

Simply, this is a great addition to the continuing story of Spider Man since the Civil War and one you must own.

I loved the main story. Sometimes for me Spider-man can be a bit girly, soft even with all the romance and troubling decisions he has to make, always taking the high ground and afraid to get dirty. Until now.

Peter Parker is angry and it leaps out of the pages. It feels more grown up and even realistic because when he hits someone, with all his superhuman strength, instead of them falling over like usual, bones break and they scream out. A bit violent but this is that: dark, black. As a result the dilemas and charecters seem much deeper for it.

I liked the J.J.Jameson story too.

Did not like the spin off from civil war to sandman. I enjoyed the enraged spider man serving justice on a platter.

4.0 out of 5 stars Powerful story, not happy times for Spidey! 10 Dec. 2007
By Elmore Hammes - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Collecting Amazing Spider-Man 539-543, Friendly Spider-Man 17-23 and Annual 1, this is the first book of two Back In Black hardcovers detailing Spider-Man's life after the Civil War events in the Marvel Universe, where his identity as Peter Parker had been publicly revealed.

Focusing on the aftermath of an assassin's attempts on his family, the story has Spider-Man facing the darker aspects of his character. Well told and drawn as usual, it cuts off rather abruptly at the end of the ASM issues. Would have liked a little more conclusive end point.

It has been a long time since I dipped into the world of comic books and while I was at the local book store I ran across this title. I only read just a few pages before I had to leave but from that day alone I was hooked and I wanted to make this book the first title I wanted to own again. From the artwork to the writing itself it was like i was watching a hollywood blockbuster movie. I love this book and it helped me get back into reading comics.
