Spider-Man is the worst neighbor EVER! There are always crazy villains and property damage and drama and...and he CATCHES the villains. And he tries to fix the damage and he helps carry your groceries and actually that property damage keeps the rents down. You know what? Spider-Man is the best neighbor ever and this book will give you a closer look at Spider-Man's (and Peter Parker's) neighborhood than any book ever. Also, it wouldn't be a Spider-Man adventure without a threat that could destroy not only Spider-Man, but all his neighbors. Superstar writer TOM TAYLOR (X-MEN RED, ALL-NEW WOLVERINE, Injustice) and rising art star JUANN CABAL (AL more

    That tone can also be felt in the art from Juann Cabal. He matches the tone of the art to the bright, vibrant daylight action this series is doing. You get to admire the character and background details throughout the issue and the story is enhanced with some fun visuals. Read Full Review

    Overall Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man was an improved effort over the debut issues, with Tom Taylor quickly getting the hang of the voice of his cast, and moving the pacing of the story along at a perfect pace. Most of the humor in this title also hits the mark adding some nice surprises to an already enjoyable story. FNSM is off to a good start, avoiding some common pitfalls some of these other recently rebooted series have gone through in the process, resulting in everything here making me look forward to issue three.

    There are many mysteries wrapped in Marvel's latest Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man issue, from what will happen to the Peter Parker's neighbor, to how a his elderly neighbor just seems to know too much. However, one unsolved mystery that fans may have overlooked concerns two orange (mutant) children introduced in Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man #1. Read Full Review

    Friendly Neighborhood is building a niche separate from the main Spider-Man series, but it might need more than solid characterization and a moderately interesting story to keep readers interested. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Charles Martin Jan 23, 2019

    When I contrast the two issues we've got so far, I can only hope for a better balance in the future. #1 was all friendly, all neighbourhood. #2 is all Spider-Man, and it suffers a little for that. This is a strong, above-average Spider-Man story. But it offers up far less of the distinctive, home-cooked feel that made the last issue special. Read Full Review
