    Wow I m seriously torn.Ok, so on the one hand this is really depressing and angsty Kind of awful.I don t know if I d read this again BUT On the other hand, there were some flat out incredible moments where Zdarsky blew my mind The way he twisted so many of the iconic storylines into something new and amazing was crazy in the best way So the thing is, this played out in a realistic way If the major real world events like Vietnam and the major comic book events like the Superhero Regis Wow I m seriously torn.Ok, so on the one hand this is really depressing and angsty Kind of awful.I don t know if I d read this again BUT On the other hand, there were some flat out incredible moments where Zdarsky blew my mind The way he twisted so many of the iconic storylines into something new and amazing was crazy in the best way So the thing is, this played out in a realistic way If the major real world events like Vietnam and the major comic book events like the Superhero Registration Act were to blend together in a somewhat darker tone, with all of the Marvel characters aging in real time That s the story this comic is telling.Cap would be a rebel fighter in Nam and Tony would be a warmonger that sort of thing.And in real life, there wouldn t be a resolution where everyone just shook hands It is legitimately brilliant, but with such a gloomy tone it just wasn t my cuppa.It is a love letter to Spider Man I didn t think so I felt like it wasof an incredibly detailed and well planned twist on the iconic storylines of Spider Man.Zdarsky pulled off something pretty special with this, and it is definitely worth checking out

    Zdarsky and Bagley take on some ambitious storytelling, telling Spider Man s story if he had aged naturally from his first appearance in the 1960 s Each issue takes place a decade layer but still covers the biggest Spider Man stories of each decade The 60 s has Spider Man s big showdown with the Green Goblin after he discovers Peter Parker is Spider Man The 70 s deal with the original Clone Saga while the 80 s is about Kraven s Last Hunt The 90 s is a return to the clone madness of that deca Zdarsky and Bagley take on some ambitious storytelling, telling Spider Man s story if he had aged naturally from his first appearance in the 1960 s Each issue takes place a decade layer but still covers the biggest Spider Man stories of each decade The 60 s has Spider Man s big showdown with the Green Goblin after he discovers Peter Parker is Spider Man The 70 s deal with the original Clone Saga while the 80 s is about Kraven s Last Hunt The 90 s is a return to the clone madness of that decade while the 20o0 s sees the addition of Morlun and Civil War Finally we end this decade with the Superior Spider Man.Mark Bagley was a great choice for this series He s drawn Spider Manthan anyone else with huge runs on Amazing Spider Man in the 90 s and Ultimate Spider Man in the 2000 s Bagley s always paid a lot of attention to the fashion of the characters on his pages That plays well here, with each decade looking period authentic

    This is, without a doubt, the best thing Chip Zdarsky has ever written A beautiful, heartfelt love letter to Spider Man, a meticulously crafted labour of love from a devoted lifetime fan of the character, a wonderful tribute to one of comics most iconic heroes In Life Story, Chip takes the base starting point of Peter Parker in the 60 s and imagines his life as he would grow, age and evolve as a person and as a hero throughout the decades right up until the 2010 s Peter goes through all the This is, without a doubt, the best thing Chip Zdarsky has ever written A beautiful, heartfelt love letter to Spider Man, a meticulously crafted labour of love from a devoted lifetime fan of the character, a wonderful tribute to one of comics most iconic heroes In Life Story, Chip takes the base starting point of Peter Parker in the 60 s and imagines his life as he would grow, age and evolve as a person and as a hero throughout the decades right up until the 2010 s Peter goes through all the major Spider Man milestone moments such as Clone Saga, Kraven s Last Hunt, Civil War, even Superior Spider Man and many others, all seen through the lens of one finite lifetime It s fantastic The story humanises every character in a way that I don t think has been done before, and Zdarsky pulls some incredible twists that feel organic and genuine instead of feeling like regular superhero comics nonsense Mark Bagley s art looks timeless, it was a brilliant move on Marvel s part to put one of the definitive Spider Man artists on a book that is bound to go down as one of the all time greatest must reads for the character Overall, Spider Man Life Story is a triumph and one of the best things Marvel has published in years, and anybody who loves Spidey or wants to get into the character should read it

    Not as good as I was expecting from so many five stars reviews here and , but the idea of re telling Spider Man saga with decades aging him normally, with historical references like the ones to Vietnam in classic Lee Romita issues not mentioning about the awesome Spidey s team up with John Belushi, Dan Aykroyd and the whole Saturday Night Live cast in epic classic Marvel Team Up Vol 1 74 , was a real good one and Mark Bagley just the perfect artist for this excellent what if tale.Being a Spide Not as good as I was expecting from so many five stars reviews here and , but the idea of re telling Spider Man saga with decades aging him normally, with historical references like the ones to Vietnam in classic Lee Romita issues not mentioning about the awesome Spidey s team up with John Belushi, Dan Aykroyd and the whole Saturday Night Live cast in epic classic Marvel Team Up Vol 1 74 , was a real good one and Mark Bagley just the perfect artist for this excellent what if tale.Being a Spider Man s fan since I learned to read, the retelling of various main events in Peter s life here was a real hit or miss for me, but in the end I loved most of this volume.And that final page was so good that gave me goosebumps

    The basic premise here is What if Marvel had allowed Spider Man and his supporting cast to age in real time and reading this book has made me wish they had My only criticism of this book is that there s not enough of it Even with six over sized issues each issue is over thirty pages long I was desperate forI didn t want this to be six issues long I wanted it to be six hundred issues long I want to read Pete s story unfolding in real time every month.With this book, Chip Zdarsky The basic premise here is What if Marvel had allowed Spider Man and his supporting cast to age in real time and reading this book has made me wish they had My only criticism of this book is that there s not enough of it Even with six over sized issues each issue is over thirty pages long I was desperate forI didn t want this to be six issues long I wanted it to be six hundred issues long I want to read Pete s story unfolding in real time every month.With this book, Chip Zdarsky has written Spider Man s The Dark Knight Returns It s just that good If you re a Spidey fan, you must read this

    When I need to recommend someone a single volume Spider man story, along with Spider man Blue, this is going to be one I ll point to in the future It s pretty fantastic Zdarsky takes decades of spider man stories and weaves them into a 6 issue novel, covering some very familiar story beats while telling a story that feels new Peter ages as he goes through the decades, along with everyone around him, which creates different takes on some classic stuff And it s really good You could say that When I need to recommend someone a single volume Spider man story, along with Spider man Blue, this is going to be one I ll point to in the future It s pretty fantastic Zdarsky takes decades of spider man stories and weaves them into a 6 issue novel, covering some very familiar story beats while telling a story that feels new Peter ages as he goes through the decades, along with everyone around him, which creates different takes on some classic stuff And it s really good You could say that this is ANOTHER version of spider man in a time when we seem to be getting a new one every week, but I think this one deserves its place Zdarsky and Bagley do something really good here and every Spider man fan should read it

    You know that big thing some people complain about comic characters, that they never really age, and nothing really evolves much cause of timeline restraints Well Chip is given the opportunity to start Peter s life in the 60 s and through the decades age him and have the world around him change In other words, we grow with Peter through his teen years to an old man The events that occur through this series might seem familiar They tackle the green goblin rise, Harry s fall, Gwen s death, Clo You know that big thing some people complain about comic characters, that they never really age, and nothing really evolves much cause of timeline restraints Well Chip is given the opportunity to start Peter s life in the 60 s and through the decades age him and have the world around him change In other words, we grow with Peter through his teen years to an old man The events that occur through this series might seem familiar They tackle the green goblin rise, Harry s fall, Gwen s death, Clone Saga, and so muchIn the end it s all done with a interesting twist, one that will actually alter Peter s life, and it s done nearly perfect for every storyline On top of the storytelling of subject matter we know and sometimes done better here than the originals we have great art with fantastic feel of old school to modern day The only thing that didn t really work for me was the overall civil war storyline that is present since issue 1 It makes sense, it s not bad, it just was the least interesting part for me Could also be because I don t like Civil War event much This has muchweight behind it though as Peter is a BIG character in it Overall, if you like Spider man, you ll most likely either like or love this story This is hands down going to be a classic for a ton of people look at the reviews on here alone and while I wouldn t say it s perfect because of the civil war plotline it remains one of the best Spider man stories of our time A 4.5 out of 5
