It's 100 years after the wall-crawler's creation, but when the Kingpin has taken Spider-Man's ultra-powerful techno-symbiote suit, Spider-Man will need to prove once again why he is the world's greatest super hero.

    It's weird to think where Spider-Man might be when he reaches his 100th anniversary. We get an interesting story here set in this time period. While it's clearly Spider-Man (and a couple other characters), you can see how some things have changed or been rebooted given the future time period. The art is pretty amazing. The story is fascinating but given that this is just one issue and we're jumping in right at the end of an "eight part" story, you won't know exactly where everyone is and who knows if we'd ever see this time period revisited. Spider-Man, Venom, and Kingpin fans should pick to see the possibility but we can't say it's an absolutely crucial read. Read Full Review

    In the case of the Fantastic Four 100th Anniversary, Jen Van Meter essentially created her own new team, tying into the Marvel mythology and adding something new to stand alongside those titans of yesteryear. Maybe that's some metacommentary, considering how much stuggle there has been to make the FF really sing the past 10 or 20 years. Peter Parker, however, is still a popular, bankable, unkillable brand - but when you're really only doing one issue of a hypothetical future series, why not go totally crazy? Why not take Spider-Man to places we've never even seen before? Ultimately, this comic's heart is in the right place, but - perhaps like Peter Parker himself - this book doesn't quite have the imagination to take that potential as far as it can go.

    Marvel has been doing such fine work over the past few years " if this is what their books will look like in 2061, I'm pretty sure I won't be buying them. Read Full Review
