Spider-Man does get into some hard hitting action. Poor Spider-Man he is a hero as Spider-Man but he has such bad luck as Peter Parker.
The art is old school and so beautiful to look at. The action poses and Spider-Man in the fight scenes show you the kind of excitement you live for.
We get to see such villains as Doc Ock, Hammerhead and others. You will thrill to reading these adventures of everyone’s favorite wall-crawler.
The Vulture is illustrated amazingly. For an old man, he can fight and fly. These two put on a show that you are sure to want to watch.
The one thing in these stories that makes Spider-Man stand out is that he is also Peter Parker an ordinary guy with an ordinary life.
The Sinister Six strike; Mysterio, Doc Ock, Kraven, Sandman, Electro and Vulture team-up. This battle is a spectacular display of fighting with each villain using their powers and abilities to full effect. Spider-Man is hard pressed against these vile villains.
There are some emotional moments too. Peter remembering his Uncle Ben fondly.
Spider-Man and Deadpool team-up and yes its silly a lot. Taskmaster makes for a nice villain.
If you want Spider-Man as how he should be presented you’re in luck True Believer. Swing into this exciting adventure and you will never be the same again.
