As I've said in other reviews, I don't expect Spider-Man to be high art, but I do expect humor, cool superhero fight scenes, intriguing plot ideas. Volume 8, however, I found to be very bland. I don't know what Silver Sable is in the "normal" Spidey universe, but in the Ultimate version she is dull--which is odd, because she shares a lot of attributes with Black Cat, whom I absolutely and totally love. Maybe it's that similarity that keeps her at a distance. It might also be the incredibly impro

This hardcover has become ridiculously hard to buy these days, something Marvel always seem to do, and it's often (probably unfairly) considered the weakest link in Ultimate Spider-Man.

Peter Parker has to face a new threat to his identity when a misinformed exec thinks Spider-Man is watching over him and hires Silver Sable and co. to track him down. Also the X-Men and Mobius turn up.

(Also, Blade - confirming their meeting in Team-Up)

Another fun, entertaining read. Black Cat makes her first appearance, and it definitely is a good one. It also shows the small conflict of Peter Parker in love with MJ, but Spider-Man falling in love with the Cat. Intriguing, but not as much so as the other previous comics.

A bit of a misstep with Deadpool, but the rest is reasonably fun.
