    SUPERIOR FOES OF SPIDER-MAN does an incredible job of doing everything right, month after month. It entertains the reader with a fun story, stays comedic without being zany, and artistically wows the reader. This was one of the funnier issues fans have seen in quite some time and it's nice to see this team actually accomplishing something instead of bumbling through it. This is a series you should be reading. Go out and pick up the trades and catch up, unless you hate fun. If you hate fun, then don't read this. Read Full Review

    Nerds On The Rocks - Jonathan Schultz Jun 6, 2014

    I always look forward to this book. The writing and art team for this book are excellent, Nick Spencer does an awesome job writing these guys and Steve Lieber does just as well drawing them. They've genuinely made me care about this ragtag group of villains. This book is the highlight of my week when it comes out. It's a funny read and sometimes it's just plain fun to root for the bad guys, right? Read Full Review

    This easily ranks among the funniest and most entertaining chapters so far as the gang take the fight to Chameleon and Hammerhead struggles to avoid his mafia movie stereotype past. Read Full Review

    Nerds Unchained - Jeremy Radick Jun 4, 2014

    There's not many other ways I can say this book's incredible. Look at my past reviews. All I can say is you can either be the person who reads this in a trade and says, “How did I miss this?” and yearn for more, or you can jump on now and maybe help it have the long run it deserves. C'mon, do it for loser super villains everywhere. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Danny Wall Jun 8, 2014

    The Bottom Line: Foes does what it does best– offer a unique glimpse into the quirky ways Boomerang tries to make his life work. The dialogue is snappy, the art playfully changes style to visualize the inner minds of the characters, and there is a heist plot in there somewhere, with twists that will play out somehow. Stay for the fun, but stay away if you want to take things seriously. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Lan Pitts Jun 9, 2014

    I hear that this book isn't doing so well, which is a shame as it's probably one of the best books that the House of Ideas has on the shelves right now. In the same vein as Fraction's Hawkeye or Kot's Secret Avengers, Superior Foes of Spider-Man is a great balance of Marvel lore, villainy, and comedy. The characters, while even in grand costumes and super-powered, are still just grounded crooks looking for that big score who don't play well together. This book, and issue, come with a large recommendation. Unless you don't like fun. If that's the case, you're probably not reading it anyways. Read Full Review

    Superior Spider-Talk - Mike Dillon Jun 10, 2014

    Overall, this is a fantastic issue. I strongly encourage you to pick it up, if not for the great writing, story, and artwork, then at the very least to catch the cameo by Obnoxio the Clown as a member of the Sinister Six(teen)! Read Full Review
