This is a great series. Tom Taylor is an excellent writer with a great handle on character and dialog. This book also nails spider-man's humor with many laugh-out-loud moments. Cabal's art is impressive. In short, this team should be on Amazing Spider-man instead of Spencer/Ottley.

Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man #3

By: Tom Taylor, Juan Cabal
Released: Feb 20, 2019

• Spider-Man heads to a part of the Marvel Universe that you've never seen before!
•  It's always fun to see Spider-Man out of his element. Well, for YOU, anyway. Spidey doesn't agree.
•  And when "out of his element" is in a place that doesn't support human life? Uh-oh!

• Aunt May is in danger and only Spider-Man can help her...
•  ...You think you know where a story like this is going, but you DON'T.
•  Because Taskmaster and Black Ant are on the scene, and they don't have a problem with collateral damage.

I'm really enjoying this book. Gage captures the voice of Otto Octavius perfectly. The art is pretty solid as well. I'm looking forward to seeing how the major sub-plot line plays out.

Superior Spider-Man #2

TERRAX HAS LANDED IN SAN FRANCISCO!
•  This cosmic-level foe outpowers Otto Octavius, the Superior Spider-Man, by a factor of ten.
•  Terrax may have no problem defeating a Spider-level hero, but he's never faced a hero who uses Otto's SUPERIOR tactics.

There is a ton of humor and heart in this series. In my opinion Taylor and Cabal should be on the flagship Amazing Spiderman book.

Spencer and Ottley are a talented team and perhaps that's why I am so disappointed with their current run. We have yet to see a truly epic Spidey battle and every villain (usually C or D list) is treated as a joke. Major plot threads are left dangling without much buildup and each issue spends too much time recapping what happened in previous issues. On the plus side, Ottley's artwork is solid an more

You'd never notice the man. He doesn't like to be noticed. He's quiet. Calm. Never complains. If someone were to walk up and shoot him in the head... all he'd do is die.
Until night falls. And someone else gets up again.
The man's name is Banner.
