The mucky man monster returns to meet the Amazing Spider-Man in a double-sized epic that connects to both Peter Parker’s youth and his present-day adventures. In the Florida Everglades, Spider-Man squares off against eight hundred pounds of menace -- the savage, mindless Man-Thing! But after the battle, Spidey finds his own, radiation-altered body chemistry changing radically. To stop his hideous transformation, he’ll have to face his own greatest fear! One-Shot/Rated A …$3.99

    The story provides an interlude to Spider-Man's adventures, but doesn't rely deliver much of a payoff for any Man-Thing fans. I'd honestly rather re-read "Marvel Team-Up" #122 again. As a matter of fact, if you're on the edge of whether or not to buy this issue, having read my review or having http://www.comicbookresources.com/?page=preview&id=1815&disp=table" target="_blank">peeked at the preview pages, check the back issue bins at your comic shop. If you can land "Marvel Team-Up" #122 for the same price as this issue, do it. Read Full Review

    Perhaps there really is a fan out there who has always dreamed of a Spider-Man/Man-Thing team-up. If there is, I'd still recommend against buying this issue. If Spider-Man: Fear Itself enables Marvel to retain the copyright on Man-Thing for another few decades, then it will have accomplished something. Beyond that, it strikes me as utterly pointless and not at all memorable. Read Full Review
