    Peter Parker, the Spectacular Spider Man is supposed to be a back to basics approach to Spider Man Zdarsky mostly focuses on setting up the next joke, no matter how long that takes Sometimes that takes a really long time This book is SOOO wordy Every Zdarsky comic I ve ever read has been burdened with too many words on the page and the trend continues here You d think a comic book artist would know how to tell a story visually, but that s never been the case with Zdarsky The plot meanders Peter Parker, the Spectacular Spider Man is supposed to be a back to basics approach to Spider Man Zdarsky mostly focuses on setting up the next joke, no matter how long that takes Sometimes that takes a really long time This book is SOOO wordy Every Zdarsky comic I ve ever read has been burdened with too many words on the page and the trend continues here You d think a comic book artist would know how to tell a story visually, but that s never been the case with Zdarsky The plot meanders from subplot to subplot without ever furthering the story By the end of this, we re left with a collection of dangling subplots but no real story I do have to say the last issue was really good It almost makes up for the rest of the fluff in the other issues Zdarsky gets real Spider Man and J Jonah Jameson finally sit down to hammer out their issues for the first time ever When you take away the jokes and all the verbose exposition, Zdarsky can actually be a pretty good writer

    Having been around for fifty five years through comics and other media, we ought to know the origin story of how Peter Parker got bitten by a radioactive spider, which gained him superpowers and how with great power comes great responsibility Even based on recent works like the cinematic Homecoming didn t need to explain this backstory whilst introducing us a new incarnation of everyone s favourite wall crawler.Opening the first issue of Chip Zdarsky s Peter Parker The Spectacular Spider Man Having been around for fifty five years through comics and other media, we ought to know the origin story of how Peter Parker got bitten by a radioactive spider, which gained him superpowers and how with great power comes great responsibility Even based on recent works like the cinematic Homecoming didn t need to explain this backstory whilst introducing us a new incarnation of everyone s favourite wall crawler.Opening the first issue of Chip Zdarsky s Peter Parker The Spectacular Spider Man, the eponymous hero explains his origin to Johnny Storm, the Human Torch, who has heard it for the millionth time and asks why he s telling it again Peter responds by saying it s an integral part of who he is This sequence may be playing for laughs, but throughout this volume, Zdarsky understands what makes Spider Man tick, both in humour and heart.Whilst Dan Slott s The Amazing Spider Man primarily focuses on Peter Parker continuing to run Parker Industries, and becoming a successful businessman who is operating worldwide, Zdarsky s comic is telling aback to basics Spidey story with our hero fighting crime in New York whilst constantly being criticised by J Jonah Jameson who now runs a blog Zdarsky is clearly looking back at the character s history and even acknowledging certain aspects that some readers wouldn t consider as canon As a loose continuation of the 2014 graphic novel Amazing Spider Man Family Business, we witness the return of Peter s fake sister Teresa, a former agent who becomes a fugitive when she s in possession of classified information about taking down super villains and super heroes For something that is meant to be back to basics , this is a story that involves espionage, journalism, multiple villains and the tinkering of gadgetry from both sides.There is a lot going on as the central plot involving a crime ring that is connected with hacked phones feelslike a way of Spidey interacting with various characters, including hanging out with his fellow super mates that feelslike an over extended episode of Spider Man and His Amazing Friends With this much going on, Adam Kubert tries his best in illustrating the spectacle of it all and despite some nice panel work and intricate character design colourised by Jordie Bellaire , his art is rough around the edges, especially in the wide paneled action sequences As with Zdarsky s Howard the Duck, this is really a writer oriented title as the storytelling relieson Chip s quippy dialogue from Spidey s jokes much to the chagrin from his friends, particularly the Human Torch, to the writer s captions that break the fourth wall and have deep cut references With this recurring theme of looking back at the past, it culminates in the final issue featuring a confrontational interview with Spider Man by his worst enemy J Jonah Jameson Drawn by Michael Walsh, who is aideal fit with Zdarsky s gag heavy writing, this issue is a masterful read that balances argumentative humour, clever call backs to Spidey s history including the pages of co creator Steve Ditko , and heart breaking character drama that leads to a huge revelation that changes the status quo With a central storyline that balances a lot of elements and embracing the old and the new, it doesn t always come together, but Chip Zdarsky knows how to write Peter Parker, both in and out of the costume, and with this ongoing arc that has featured good twists along the way, it ll be interesting to see where the web slinger will go next

    Chip Zdarsky writing Spider Man should be better than this Him poking fun at Spidey was the best part of his admittedly lukewarm Howard The Duck series, so I expected a full on satirical take on crybaby Spider Man But nope, Chip does the same thing with Spectacular that he did with every other comic he wrote pretty much nothing The story is somewhere between generic and nonexistent Peter s fake sister from the Family Business OGN shows up, she s in some trouble with the government for Chip Zdarsky writing Spider Man should be better than this Him poking fun at Spidey was the best part of his admittedly lukewarm Howard The Duck series, so I expected a full on satirical take on crybaby Spider Man But nope, Chip does the same thing with Spectacular that he did with every other comic he wrote pretty much nothing The story is somewhere between generic and nonexistent Peter s fake sister from the Family Business OGN shows up, she s in some trouble with the government for stealing some crap Peter finds a Starkphone that has been hacked and is untraceable, and that becomes a story for a while so that Spidey can meet Ironheart Then some authorities try to arrest Peter Parker for something It s really boring, is what I try to say, and Chip s unusually wordy writing also makes this book a slog to get through The humor is very tepid, but that is surprisingly always the case with Zdarsky written books for some reason, the guy can be hilarious on his social media and working on Sex Criminals, but when it comes to writing his own comics, it s as if he doesn t have any good jokes left Weird.So it comes as evenof a surprise that the final issue in this collection is actually really good The issue puts Spider Man and Jay Jonah Jameson together in a room They have dinner and talk Sounds simple, but Chip manages to make this confrontation insightful and moving, making it a fascinating character study for both of them This one issue almost made the entire collection worth it, although it is pretty much standalone for the majority of the issue, only tying into the main story a bit in the beginning and the end, so you could read just that if you wanted to skip all the boring parts.Adam Kubert s artwork is fittingly unexciting Plain, simpistic and scratchy, his art style isn t godawful and it gets the job done, I guess, but it makes me yawn every time I see it Superhero comics shouldn t look like this, not unless you actually want your readers to fall asleep One good issue can t save an otherwise painfully dull collection of comics There are a lot of words I could use to describe this volume, but Spectacular wouldn t be one of them

    I recently asked Chad, one of my Goodreads friends, what to read to get caught up on the new status quo for Peter Parker and J Jonah Jameson and he pointed me towards Spectacular Spider Man Fortunately, the issue in question was fantastic Unfortunately, the ride to get to it was a long one.It s a shame because I think Chip Zdarsky is can be brilliant His antics on social media have cracked me uptimes than I could count and his artwork and humour in Sex Criminals boy, did that series f I recently asked Chad, one of my Goodreads friends, what to read to get caught up on the new status quo for Peter Parker and J Jonah Jameson and he pointed me towards Spectacular Spider Man Fortunately, the issue in question was fantastic Unfortunately, the ride to get to it was a long one.It s a shame because I think Chip Zdarsky is can be brilliant His antics on social media have cracked me uptimes than I could count and his artwork and humour in Sex Criminals boy, did that series fade away were often just as good Hell, even his Howard the Duck series had it s moments Sadly, Spectacular Spider Man is often just boring.By far the biggest hindrance is Peter himself In this series he talks incessantly, acts like a loser, makes dumb decisions that leave him looking like an idiot and,often that not, is terribly unfunny Rarely have I read a comic and thought I should be laughing at this and yet not done so once The Free Comic Book Day issue actually started things off quite well, but it was all downhill from there.Adam Kubert s artwork suffers, too I m not sure how frequently the series shipped in singles, but there s a notable decline in the quality of his pencils Fortunately, Michael Walsh steps in for the finale and Chip Zdarsky does a U turn and knocks it out of the park.Spider Man and Jameson meet for dinner in a must read issue that sees the two finally confront each other over their mutual disdain Peter quips a couple of times, but it s mostly played straight and shows that Zdarsky is a very capable writer in that field It doesn t change the fact that Into the Twilight is a one issue trade, but that one issue is definitely worth tracking down

    So I was close to saying this was pretty meh but then the last issue came along and yeah, I really loved that issuea lot So anyway, what s it about Peter is chasing down Vulture at the start so it begins as a run of the mil story but soon we get deeper into it We meet a new hero who creates weapons and suits for heroes The Thinker makes his grand return Then we have Peter Parker s sister, yes his sister, and they begin to team up to survive the bad guys The very last issue deals with J So I was close to saying this was pretty meh but then the last issue came along and yeah, I really loved that issuea lot So anyway, what s it about Peter is chasing down Vulture at the start so it begins as a run of the mil story but soon we get deeper into it We meet a new hero who creates weapons and suits for heroes The Thinker makes his grand return Then we have Peter Parker s sister, yes his sister, and they begin to team up to survive the bad guys The very last issue deals with J.J and Spider man finally settling their differences Good Love, love, LOVE the final issue It s one that really stands out and pushes Peter s relationship with J.J further than it s ever had I also really enjoy the fights here, fun and quick witted Spider man does have some really funny moments too Bad The actual plot is kind of all over the place and lacks focus The main enemy is lame The sister sidekick thing is kind of meh And I really think there s far to much talking for certain characters Overall it was a pretty mixed bag till the end I was going with a 2.5 but then that last issue easily pushes it to a 3.5 So I ll settle on a 3 out of 5 Not bad

    I skipped buying this monthly but then comiXology had it as part of their 69p trade sale so it was an immediate buy for that amount.It s a fun book It feels a little Team up at times not in a bad way with Iron Heart and Human Torch popping up I m glad someone is following up the Family Business GN as well because it quite liked that I thought Zdarsky might try and be too jokey, and the plot and action scenes would suffer because of it, but he manages to blend the humour and story well.

    Read as single issues I really like Chip Zdarsky His humour really resonates with me, but when he tries to play it straight it doesn t always end well This volume is an example of that.He has a solid grasp of plotting, with lots of seemingly disconnected threads tying together in different ways as the series progresses, but none of them feel like they play to his strengths There s a lot of exposition, and sometimes a lot of set up for a joke that doesn t quite land I like the re introductio Read as single issues I really like Chip Zdarsky His humour really resonates with me, but when he tries to play it straight it doesn t always end well This volume is an example of that.He has a solid grasp of plotting, with lots of seemingly disconnected threads tying together in different ways as the series progresses, but none of them feel like they play to his strengths There s a lot of exposition, and sometimes a lot of set up for a joke that doesn t quite land I like the re introduction of Peter s sister Teresa, as well as Uatu Jackson, but the villains aren t particularly compelling.The best parts are Zdarsky s pairings of characters Peter and Johnny Storm are always a gold mine, and the final issue with Peter and Jonah Jameson is easily the best issue of the series, but then other times we get characters like the new love interest for Peter who feels like her suspension of disbelief is off the charts.The art doesn t always play to Zdarsky s strengths either Adam Kubert is not an artist I want on monthly books trying to keep to schedules makes his art suffer, and particularly with this book he seems to be phoning it in It also doesn t mesh well with Zdarsky s humour there should be some element of physical comedy to go with Zdarsky s dialogue, and that doesn t happen Like at all.I m not sure what Marvel are aiming for with this book, but it has a lot of potential that isn t landing yet

    3This is my first Spider Man book and while I enjoyed some of the story, it just felt a little slow for my liking One of my biggest hates is the self referencing in the panels, basically just means that they want you to read a previous book Chip Zdarsky definitely has a style of writing that suits Spider Man, but I just couldn t overcome the slow beginning Into the Twilight might be destined to grow into a longer arc, but this storyline wasn t that impressive for a first timer and I may need 3This is my first Spider Man book and while I enjoyed some of the story, it just felt a little slow for my liking One of my biggest hates is the self referencing in the panels, basically just means that they want you to read a previous book Chip Zdarsky definitely has a style of writing that suits Spider Man, but I just couldn t overcome the slow beginning Into the Twilight might be destined to grow into a longer arc, but this storyline wasn t that impressive for a first timer and I may need to find my Spider Man fix somewhere else I have volumes 2 and 3 sitting at the library and I m really tossing up if I should get them.Why the 3 While I enjoyed the art and the character interactions, I just couldn t be invested in the overall storyline I tend to find stories that have a long history are quite hard to jump onto mid way through the run This wasn t my type of book and I do tend to find that Marvel books don t appeal that much for me I have a few other books, but I ll see if I m interesting in returing to this series
