    This is an entertaining comic that maximizes its extra-large size with entertaining scenes featuring many characters. Frankly, if you're looking for exclusive Spidey entertainment you might be disappointed, but if you're a hardcore Marvel fan, you'll be delighted to see a few different cameos.

If you think the company's evolved in positive ways since then, though, you're probably better off skipping this one. Read Full Review
