    I enjoyed seeing Spider-Man attempt stand-up comedy (and fail miserably) despite the fact that hes consistently been one of the funniest characters for the past five and a half decades or so. The art was excellent and the character interaction was great. The title of the issue was a great pun on the Tinkerers exo suit, and Im a sucker for puns, especially when they come from Spider-Man.

    Peter Parker: The Spectacular Spider-Man #4 delivered all the fun fans have come to expect from everyone's favorite Web Slinger. Chip Zdarsky does such a great job balancing the comedy and drama that surrounds Peter Parker's life in and out of his Spider-Man adventures. Some strong progression in several sub-plots helped make the main story surrounding the mysterious Teresa Parker even more intriguing. Read Full Review

    I'm not sure what has happened to Adam Kubert's art style over the last few years, but I am not digging it. It just feels so unfinished compared to his work from earlier in his career. It doesn't help that Kubert is on the comedy Spider-Man book, and there's nothing inherently humorous about his art. Read Full Review

    The weaknesses in this series are on full display with this issue, from bad comedy to narrative cheats, and it's weighing down the whole adventure. Read Full Review
