Spider-Man: Inside the World of Your Friendly Neighborhood Hero Book Review
About the Book: The ultimate web-slinger is back in this exciting and informative ultimate guide. Spider-Man: Inside the World of your Friendly Neighborhood Hero traces Spider-Man's entire career from his high-school beginnings as Peter Parker to his love affair with the enchanting Mary Jane.
With foreword by Stan Lee and full details of Spidey's powers granted from the bite of an irradiated spider, as well as significant adventures, battles, loves, allies, and enemies, this all-inclusive book has a strong focus on storylines and conflicts within Spider-Man's world. Come to find out how your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man came to be created in 1962 and how the character has developed over the years. Full of interesting facts and dynamic comic book art, Spider-Man: Inside the World of your Friendly Neighborhood Hero is the tell-all to the famous Amazing Spider-Man.
Our Take: We love comics here at the Legion. Marvel...Dc..Darkhorse, we don't discriminate. Spider-man is one of the most iconic Marvel heroes and this new DK book focuses on Spidey's extensive past. DK is well known for producing great guides for cartoons and comic books. This one, written by Matthew Manning, is masterfully produced and well put together. He covers all of the key characters and key plots with ease and so well organizes the extensive amount of material that we can easily learn all we need to know to get caught up to modern-day Spidey! A few of the characters, like Venom, have changed SO drastically in the past 15 years that you need book like this just to keep up! We highly recommend this one, especially with the new Spider-Man film coming out soon...no better time to brush up on your friendly neighborhood webhead!
