    We The Nerdy - David Staniusz Mar 14, 2014

    We see little to none of the rest of the team however that is fine as the issue was perfectly balance, and from the tease we will get more next issue (hopefully Overdrive will get the spotlight someday). Simply put this book continues to be a hit. Go check it out, it will become a $3 you cannot wait to spend. Read Full Review

    Nerds Unchained - Jeremy Radick Mar 13, 2014

    Judging by the credits the art this issue is the work of many hands, but the style still feels consistent throughout. There are less of the amazing layouts and stylized touches than there have been in past issues, but the ones that are included are really funny. This remains a book that makes you love comics every time you read an issue. Read Full Review

    Steve Lieber is awesome, as usual. He's joined by Rich Ellis in this issue, although it's not entirely clear what additional art Ellis is providing. Regardless, this comic looks great.The stuff with Boomrang is the best, especially his encounter with Bullseye. The characters ooze personality, which really seels this thing. The only clunky moments are when Lieber adds quick movements into the page (like an extra arm to show the character is waving at a fast speed). It's a little addition that isn't needed, especially when everything else looks so damn good. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Greg McElhatton Mar 14, 2014

    "The Superior Foes of Spider-Man" #9 is another piece of a strange little series that deserves more attention than it gets. It's clever, it's funny, it's good looking and it rewards the reader. What more can you ask for? Read Full Review

    The story continues with character driven twists and in-depth clever depiction of our our Foes. The color art works wonders and gives shine to the numerous details bij Lieber. Be it a trophy in Shocker's living room or the recurrent gag of the movie An Ugly Truth. The muted tone contrasts the colorful characters well. The story manages to surprise, delight and keeps us on our toes. How will all the plots tie together? It is a compliment how both Spencer and Lieber a manage to continue the overall story while giving us a meaty comic with proper continuation, characterization whilst dropping hits of things to come. Great work. The cover art is a monumental piece of art. Attention to detail is found in the smaller depiction of the logo to make the best of the page. Colour and linework look natural. If that is the case it is the best art it can be. There are nods in the cover which regular readers will pick up, like the puppy and Speed Demon (which he stole and came to love), Overdrive with his car, Beetle with her Phone and Shocker who has a reputation for cowardice. Recommended.
