It's very moving and definitely worth reading, if only for the artwork alone.
The rest of the book reprints other stories from the era. I found 'Severance Package' to be an interesting read but 'Flowers for Rhino' didn't interest me at all. These two stories are reprinted in Spider-Man's Tangled Web Omnibus which includes the complete series. Tangled Web is a series of ever-rotating talent showcasing an anthology series of which Spider-Man, rather misleadingly, barely appears in cameos and certainly isn't the protagonist.
A thoroughly good read, though, as we gets to see various artists and writers' takes on Spider-Man, most of which are not usually associated with the character.
Peter Parker: Spider-Man 36 consists of Billy Fender, an insurance claims investigator, as he utilises detective work attempting to discover Spidey's secret identity. The story is fun but not up to Bendis' usual standard. JMS' run on Spidey is renowned for being so ground breaking and interesting, and, with other series including the ones in this book and Marvel Knights Spider-Man various, but in particular Mark Millar and Terry Dodson , leads up very nicely to the big reveal in Millar's Civil War which is still spoken about in the mainstream media today.
While this is the best way to read JMS' run so far Inevitable omnibus edition coming within the next few years, I'm sure An oversized collected edition of 'Ultimate Team Up' collects every single issue of the series and the Tangled Web Omnibus due in June again collects every single issue.
I'd only really recommend this book to collect the JMS run, which I feel I must reiterate, is fantastic. Easily the best Spider-Man run I've ever read!
It's the best way to collect the JMS run for now, but if you're reading this in the future and there's an omnibus edition available, chances are that's better. Thanks for reading! Aug 08, Aaron rated it really liked it. Here we have the very first issues of J. Michael Straczynski's apparently polarizing, incredibly long run at the helm of The Amazing Spider-Man, along with a few other bonus stories thrown in for good measure.
I have to say, so far, I'm into it. JMS definitely has a tendency to be long-winded, throwing in too much narration that features too much heavy-handed faux-philosophical rambling, but this isn't constant enough in this volume to really throw me. Basically, he's just a good writer. There is Here we have the very first issues of J.
There isn't anything wildly original here. No ground is broken. But what we do get is intensely readable, popcorn superheroism that ends up being a blast to read. In this volume, Spider-Man battles a seemingly-immortal, vampire-like guy who feeds on superheroes or, to be more specific, those chosen by "animal totems".
It's helped quite a bit by Romita Jr. It's a very solid intro to his run, and I'm looking forward to the rest.
I can only imagine what it must have felt like to read it at the time. I was impressed by JMS's urge for America to deal out justice, but not to become caught up in vengeance to a point that we kill just as many innocents as were lost in New York. This seems particularly apt in hindsight, what with drone strikes and the ongoing battles we still fight leaving many innocents dead. I remember at the time hearing so many of my peers and friends saying how much they wanted to join the army and go wipe out the terrorists, and in such a heated, revenge-fueled time, it's very interesting to see JMS take a more reasoned, peace-leaning approach.
Also in hindsight, the issue reads a little heavy, consisting almost completely of florid language and attempts at waxing poetic, but it's a little hard to judge an issue for this when it was written just after such a sea change. Anyway, on to the lighter stuff. And guess what: I enjoyed almost every one of them. Rucka and Risso present a measured, emotional, and incredibly realistic mob story from within Kingpin's organization.
Peter Milligan writes an occasionally laugh-out-loud Rhino story inspired by Flowers for Algernon , which may have been my favorite of these shorts. Paul Jenkins' story about a depressed, broken man trying to discover Spider-Man's secret identity is a little forced but ultimately enjoyable.
The only bonus story in this volume I didn't really like was Bendis's Ultimate Team-Up, which felt like a rushed, shoddily-plotted attempt to shove The Punisher, Daredevil, and Spider-Man together all at once.
For one, these characters barely interact, kind of defeating the purpose, and it takes almost two entire issue of the 3-issue arc to actually get anywhere. So, some solid Spidey stuff in here, if nothing that's going to stick with you forever. Definitely worth a read, but you could also skip this big volume and just read the regular JMS trades or hardcovers. Whatever, man, it's your life.
Do what you want. Jan 07, Randy Lander rated it liked it Shelves: graphic-novels , swanky-hardcovers , marvel-superheroes. There's also a great one-off by Greg Rucka and Eduardo Risso that shows the day in the life of a mid-level operator for the Kingpin. Publisher Bill Jemas wanted to re-invent the Marvel Universe because he felt that, with over 40 years of backstory, it had become inaccessible to new readers, and he wanted to start with a re-invented Spider-Man. Initially, Marvel Editor-in-Chief Joe Quesada was skeptical because 's Spider-Man: Chapter One , a previous attempt at re-envisioning Spider-Man's early adventures, had failed both critically and commercially.
Though Spider-Man's original origin story in Amazing Fantasy 15 was only 11 pages long, Bendis' retelling of Spider-Man's origin was seven issues long.
Bagley was at first wary of Bendis' notoriously slow pace in advancing plot , describing it as a "real shock" at first. The first several issues were greeted with enthusiasm from fans and critics, sold well, and gave Ultimate Marvel a boost in credibility. As the series progressed within the next two years, reception and sales stayed strong, helped by the fact that Bendis and Bagley quickly found chemistry and enjoyed working together.
Bagley and writer Brian Michael Bendis had worked on the series together since it began. Issue , named "The Talk", featured Immonen's art for the first time. The issue was divided into two parts, with Bagley covering the art for one section, and Immonen doing the other. Issue was the final issue of the series before a two-issue follow-up entitled Ultimatum: Spider-Man Requiem was released, revealing the status of the title's characters after the events of the " Ultimatum " storyline.
For issues and up, Marvel Legacy considers 54— and — to be wrongly numbered, and accounts for all major Ultimate Spider-Man comics written by Bendis  :. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
