    A great fifth issue shows this series is hitting its stride. Superior Spider-Man continues to be the best unconventional superhero book on the stands. Read Full Review

    Overall, Superior Spider-Man is a title where we continue to see Otto attempt to make strides in the right direction as a hero and citizen of San Francisco. It doesn't always have the highest stakes compared to other books in the Spider office, but does provide quick, fun, entertaining stories to the readers, while providing character moments for the cast in the issues each month. A highly recommended series thus far with some excellent visuals. Read Full Review

    Far from a must-read, there's still some odd fun here in the absurdity of Otto's date and the equally absurd new threat he'll need Strange's help to stop. For fans. Read Full Review

    Five issues in, I'm still having trouble finding a reason to be invested in Superior Spider-Man. Read Full Review
