    This is a solid book that gives us a nuanced characterization of Otto Octavius that creates a stronger Superior Spider-Man as a result. Seeing Otto and Namor interact and almost bond over a mutual arrogance and sense of entitlement was interesting even if I am not a fan of Namor as of late. Although I love the art, I realize it may not be everyone's cup of tea, though I would not let that keep you from picking this one up. Fans of the main Superior Spider-Man book especially need to pick this book up so they can get a better look under the mask of Superior Spider-Man and see Otto for who he really is, a hero.

    Again this comic shows a lot of potential, but it shows Doc Ock going back to being the Superior Spider-man. Maybe I'm asking too much since this is only a team up book. Maybe we'll see if something like this happens in the Superior Spider-man series. Other then that this comic is a definite must read for fans who read Superior Six and those who just might be into a good comic. Read Full Review

    Will Sliney, late of Fearless Defenders, illustrates this one-shot issue. Sliney's figure work isn't as refined as regular artist Marco Checchetto, but he does manage to strike a similar mood and more downbeat approach to Spidey's world. The facial work is variable in quality, but he definitely renders Spidey in motion very well. Read Full Review

    The book ends with Otto once again feeling that he should be the Superior Spider-Man and no longer preparing to turn himself in. Read Full Review

    Despite an anti-climatic ending to its plot, "Superior Spider-Man Team-Up" #8 succeeds on showcasing the conflict of the titular character. Octavius is nowhere near as lovable or relatable as Peter Parker is, but his conflicts and decisions made towards resolving those conflicts continues to make for interesting reading. As Yost wraps up his work here and on "Scarlet Spider," readers can only look forward to the upcoming relaunch of "New Warriors" to see what the writer can do with the rest of the Marvel Universe. If it's anything like his work on "Superior Spider-Man Team-Up," readers are in for more fun adventures showcasing comics striving towards their potential. Read Full Review
