I like Spider-Man: he’s a great character and has an enduring quality. After his reboot a few years ago we’re back with a single Peter Parker. This story arc brings Peter to a new low and high. A new Hobgoblin arises and lots of violence and action ensues.

No real prior knowledge of the existing Spider-Man story is required so this is a great point to jump in. It has a very unique art style and it creates a love ’em or leave ’em attitude: lots of hard lines, jagged angles and kinked hair. It’s bold and I thoroughly enjoyed it.
