Dang. Saw this on the shelves at the Library and thought "that looks interesting." I was wrong. Interesting doesn't begin to describe this graphic novel - it was a blast. A fast-paced tear through the life of Peter Parker, both his major events plus those of the real world, and how they shaped his character. There are some awesome twists and turns, some Spidey experts will know, but you'll be so caught up, you probably won't see them sneaking up on you. There are many heroes and villains cropping up, but it focuses mostly on those who impacted Spidey the most. The artwork is terrific, the whole story arc is crisp, and despite being aimed at us less young people, my son (who's 8) and a self-avowed Spider-man expert, loved it too.

I went into this book not knowing what to expect, it looked interesting, was written by an author I like, is about one of my favorite characters, so what the hell. It was amazing! I enjoyed the various changes made to the events to make them different and accurate to an aged Spider-Man. I will definitely need to buy my own copy.
