    Newsarama - David Pepose Oct 3, 2013

    Full of dark comedy and surprising heart, Superior Foes of Spider-Man is bar-none the best Spidey book on the stands. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Mat 'Inferiorego' Elfring Oct 2, 2013

    This was my favorite issue of the week. SUPERIOR FOES OF SPIDER-MAN continues to deliver a witty and fun story with characters that usually sit around in villain purgatory. It's a great use of these characters, and this issue in particular gives the reader more insight into how Boomerang works. The writing and art are both fantastic, and overall, I highly recommend this issue and this series. Have some fun with your comics. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Oct 2, 2013

    And, of course, this issue delivers plenty of funny. The characters are all so pathetic in their own ways you can't help but love them. Simple gags like Luke Cage stealing back the Thunderbolts badge from Shocker give the series that extra spice it needs. And the humor is where artist Steve Lieber is crucial to the book's success. Lieber throws out all manner of clever sight gags and cutaways that highlight the absurdity of the characters and their situations. This book might not be as "in your face" with its design and page construction choices as something like Hawkeye, but it boasts a style all its own and enough creativity for any three superhero comics.

    Unleash The Fanboy - Harrison Rawdin Oct 2, 2013

    The Superior Foes of Spider-Man #4 is a fascinating release set in an era plagued by a warped version of an iconic hero. Despite that fact this is with a doubt a welcome addition to anyone's pull-list. Highly recommended. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Hugo Robberts Lariviere Oct 4, 2013

    With some more twists, humor, misery and some surprising depths to his characters, Spencer shows how fun a book about losers and villain can truly be. With some strong effort by Lieber and Rosenberg, it also manage to be good-looking too. A thoroughly nice read. Read Full Review

    Comic Booked - Kelly Cassidy Oct 4, 2013

    Even thought I thought it would a fun read at start, I didn't have faith in it. This team has proven me wrong. This truly puts “fun” back into “funny book” and that's something that far too many books recently are missing. It doesn't take itself too seriously, and that's really its attraction to me.

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Oct 5, 2013

    Superior Foes of Spider-Man continues to be an awesome experience. The characters are great, the art is pitch perfect and Boomerang is such a fun protagonist. I have no idea where Spencer is taking this series, but this issue let's us know that Superior Foes is going to be anything but predictable. Read Full Review

    Crave Online - Andy Hunsaker Oct 8, 2013

    Superior Foes of Spider-Man is perhaps a bad name for this book, making it seem like a cheap tie-in to the Superior Spider-Man gravy train and maybe mandating that it can't go any longer than that does without some kind of new nomenclature, but the book itself is a nice look into the everyday lives of the colorful criminals of Marvel's New York. We tend to love these guys as concepts, but Spencer is showing us who they are as people… and even though they're fun to watch, they're not all that likable. Read Full Review
