    SUPERIOR FOES OF SPIDER-MAN #10 brings the gift -- of laughter! The usual team of Nick Spencer and Steve Leiber may have the issue off, but James Asmus and several artists prove they have what it takes to maintain the book's signature style. This may not move the plot forward and it's just more of these characters looking like fools, but you know what? It's a total blast and kept me chuckling the whole time. With so many dark and stern stories going on in the other books I'm following, it's so nice to have a series that aims to make you laugh and does it exceptionally well. Thanks for the good time, SUPERIOR FOES OF SPIDER-MAN. Read Full Review

    Superior Foes #10 may not have had anything to do with the regular, ongoing story, but it was still a fun comic. Read Full Review

    The Superior Foes of Spider-Man #10 might be a fill-in issue but it still maintains much of the charm and wit that the series is known for. Read Full Review

    At the end of the day, the issue is missing the deft touch and loving characterization that Spencer excels at. Yes, he depicts these characters as petty, selfish and a little dim, but you feel that he also loves them and feels that in their own way, they are good at their jobs. Its a series about people who are mediocre trying for more, and we can all identify with that. This issue feels like a lot of the jokes are at the expense of the Sinister Six, with their idiotic plan to rob this bar. Once again, the issue is funny, and theres stuff to enjoy here, but it also throws into relief how its the skills and viewpoints of Spencer and Lieber that elevate this series beyond a joke book. And that makes me hungry to return to the main storyline and regular team. Read Full Review
