    So if you're an 80s kid like me and you love revisiting your youth through comics, pick up this issue. It has some very good stories and some good artwork. Love the Clone Saga like I do? Check out the Kaine story. J.M. DeMatteis does a great job. A good start and looking forward to more. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Stacy Baugher Oct 18, 2009

    So, there you have it, the first issue of the new Web of Spider-Man series. Taking into account that they are using this as a building block for future Spidey stories, and it is the new home of Spider-Girl, this may be one to watch out for. All three stories have good art, and each has a little something different for everyone. As a general rule, the anthology as a format doesn't normally last long, and seeing what just happened recently to the Amazing Spider-Man Family book, I have to wonder how this one will last. Personally, I love anthologies, give me multiple stories to read in an issue and I am in comic heaven. That being said, I am giving Web of Spider-Man #1 4 out of 5 stars. Read Full Review

    All in all, I can find no reason to dislike Web of Spider-Man, but perhaps equally little reason to care about its existence. For all the hype surrounding the return of a venerated Spider-man book, the series feels exactly as if Amazing Spider-Man Family and Brand New Day Extra were rolled into one book. So far, the book is doing no better at finding its own identity. Perhaps that will change in the future, and perhaps not. But if nothing else, it does fill that once-a-month void when no new issue of Amazing hits the stands. That's certainly something. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - James Hunt Oct 19, 2009

    It'd probably help the title's chances if one of the three stories could make me glad I bought it, but while Sean McKeever and Stephanie Buscema's Frog Man six-pager was by some distance the best of the lot, with a cute story and some energetic, animated-style artwork, it wasn't substantial enough to recoup $3.99's worth of goodwill by itself. Unfortunately, despite the slight reworking, "Web of Spider-Man" makes all the same mistakes that "Amazing Spider-Man Family" anthology did, without replicating the relevance of the stories that made the "Amazing Spider-Man Extra" anthologies the enjoyable reads they were. Perhaps the next issue will be completely different -- it is an anthology, after all -- but in all honesty, I'm not sure I'll be around to find out. Read Full Review
