    A visual change-up from the more animated artwork that typically fills the pages of "Superior Spider-Man," Checchetto, Rosenberg and Caramagna make "Superior Spider-Man Team-Up" #5 a pretty book to look at. Combined with Yost's proclivity to deliver fun adventures for the webslinger, this comic has found its way back onto my absolute-must-read list. With the recent developments in "Superior Spider-Man" spreading their influence to this title, "Superior Spider-Man Team-Up" becomes a great companion book, but has no problem whatsoever in providing readers with a solid, enjoyable story capable of being appreciated on its own merits. Any Spider-Fan that hasn't checked out "Superior Foes" should pick up this issue -- it's a fantastic starting point and a solid introduction to the characters and concept. Read Full Review

    It's great having Checchetto back on the series. He captures both the dynamic energy and sinister underpinnings of the Superior Spider-Man better than perhaps any artist at Marvel. His action scenes are clean and eye-catching. His facial work is top-notch. Superior Spider-Man has made great strides in recent months, but with Yost and Checchetto at the helm, Team-Up remains the truly superior book. Read Full Review

    I can't wait to see what the next issue will show and how this plan of having his own team will blow up in Doc Ock's face. Read Full Review

    I know there have been a lot of Spider-books out recently. And when this happens, we sometimes get a lot of garbage. Thankfully, this title is still on par with the main title and is just as interesting. If you like the regular book, this issue is a must have. Read Full Review

    Crave Online - Andy Hunsaker Oct 24, 2013

    Marco Checchetto does a solid job with capturing all this chaos, but the whole Sun Girl thing was a bit confusing at first. She shows up as a tiny yellow speck, and then a leg getting tackled by Bulldozer, so we don't quite grasp that there's somebody on the scene until Otto mentions a vague memory of punching her once. Also, the introduction of the Wrecking Crew seems a bit awkwardly placed, with Piledriver and Wrecker's intro boxes switched. So it feels like there may have been minor miscommunications going on, but overall, Superior Spider-Man Team-Up #5 is a lot of good time comic book action. Read Full Review

    Overall, it's a decent book, and the Paolo Rivera-illustrated cover alone makes it well worth purchasing. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Tony 'G-Man' Guerrero Oct 23, 2013

    Chris Yost returns to SUPERIOR SPIDER-MAN TEAM-UP and we finally get to see the next phase of SpOck's plan, involving his former Sinister Six partners. With some tight continuity with SUPERIOR SPIDER-MAN, we see some immediate follow up to the new developments Dan Slott introduced in Spidey's universe. SpOck is setting himself up more and more for a big fall and it's almost hard to watch. Marco Checchetto and Rachelle Rosenberg's art and colors gives the issue an interesting feel loaded with detail and big action. We are left with a set up for a new problem for Spider-Man and we'll have to stay tuned to see how it all develops. Read Full Review

    If it's Superior Spider-Man, I'm going to be there. I'm more interested in the Spider-books now than I have been in years. Unfortunately, they can't all be winners. This book had some serious issues, but a lot of good ideas. They balance one another out for an ultimately readable, but forgettable, book. Read Full Review
