    As a big fan of the PS4 video game, I can say I'm dying to see this comic series catch up with the game story. It's nice to recap the adventure and it certainly brings fond memories, but it's going to be exciting to read further adventures in one of the coolest game universes ever made. This is an easy 9 out of 10 for anyone who hasn't played the game. Read Full Review

    All too often, stories change for the worse when they are translated across mediums, but Hallum and Bandini maintain the spirit of the original work in Spider-Man: City at War, which doesn’t try to reinvent the wheel and thereby makes a pretty effective adaptation. Fans of the game will find some fun behind-the-scenes content in the back matter, which is a fun bonus. But for folks who don’t care for video games, this still stands on its own as the beginning of a good Spider-Man story, and that’s what’s most important here. Read Full Review

    If you haven't played the PS4 game, Marvel's Spider-Man City at War #1 is an easy BUY. If you have already played the game, the comic book doesn't qualify as essential, but still merits a BROWSE! Read Full Review

    Of course it won't take you as long to read this as it will to play the game it's adapted from, as you'll probably be spending hours (like I did) swinging around the city just for the fun of it. This takes all the exciting bits from the game and adds extra touch-ups here and there to provide a cohesive and thrilling story for those who would rather read it than play it. However, if you have played it, you're not missing much and shouldn't be left on the edge of your seat by any cliffhangers, but you know how great the game is, and it's just as much for the story as it is for the gameplay.
