    Buy this issue, in fact buy 2 copies as a nice boost in sales will let Marvel know it should be writing more books like this one. Read Full Review

    If you're loving Fraction's HAWKEYE, there's literally no good reason why you shouldn't be reading Spencer's SUPERIOR FOES OF SPIDER-MAN. There's a tidal wave of great laughs in this issue and there's a big surprise thrown in there, too. I know the word "fun" has already been used twice in this review, but ultimately, the best way to describe this book is pure fun. Seriously, don't skip on this one -- it's a real blast.

    Newsarama - George Marston Dec 11, 2013

    Superior Foes of Spider-Man is just one of a number of books at Marvel that are exploring the idea of the post-modern super-hero. More like a sitcom than a traditional super-hero book, Superior Foes combines humor and pathos with a sarcastic love letter to the history of Marvel's super-villains. With Boomerang, the book's leading man, receiving some fantastic characterization this issue, and his supporting cast providing some big thrills, Superior Foes of Spider-Man #6 is a strong issue from a book that, month in and month out, is one of Marvel's best.

    I can't believe we're only at six issues. This series seems like it's been around for a lot longer, but if the cover says '6", I'll believe six. And to commemorate the sixth issue of a Sinister Six comic, Spencer and Lieber apparently went above and beyond with their work. This is the best, funniest issue of Superior Foes so far.

    Its just such a fun book. As anyone who is reading DC right now can tell you, creating a book that is just simply fun is much harder than it looks. If youre not reading this book, do yourself a favour and pick it up. Itll brighten up your Wednesdays. Read Full Review

    We The Nerdy - David Staniusz Dec 12, 2013

    6 issues in and Superior Foes has continues to deliver. With this whacky plot of Fred's coming to a head, what lies ahead in this story should be a blast! Read Full Review

    Spencer's dialogue is very entertaining, and it's obvious he enjoys juggling hair-brained schemes and criminal shenanigans like this. It's always a good time when great writers take obscure characters and just have a ball with them in ways that make sense. Plus, Steve Lieber's artwork is a lot of fun, imaginatively detailed and very much in the David Aja Hawkeye vein, which gives this book a very contemporary and snazzy feel. You just feel like you're reading something cool when you open up Superior Foes of Spider-Man, so you should do that. Read it. Keep it going. Because small-time supervillains in a world of big-time superheroes is always an engaging juxtaposition. It's fun, it's funny, and it looks great. What more do you need out of a comic book?

    'The Superior Foes of Spider-Man #6" rounds out this heist of the former Mob-Boss-Robot-Head arc with more visual gags and humorous dialogue than your abs can handle! I love seeing these street level villains attempting to just scrape by and is a favorite of mine in Marvel. The overall motif of this book keeps me coming back for humorous dialog and that simple, stylish art. Read Full Review

    I didn't care about any of these characters and doubted the idea of an ongoing with them before I picked up this book. Don't be that person. Get in with the Sinister Six now before they find a sixth member and don't have room for you. Read Full Review
