I guess I love torture, having just spent some time not enjoying the primary Back in Black hardcover, and then immediately reading this supplemental garbage. This is just another lackluster Spider-Man collection that only further goes to show that Marvel had no idea what to do with the character back when this was being printed. His motivations and choices don’t match up at all with the ones we’ve seen in the other simultaneous publications. It makes me kind of think that One More Day, the Spide ...more
Just as Spider-Man throws on his black costume (because he's all sad about Aunt May getting shot) a villain captures homeless youth, pumps them up with volatile Spider-powers, and gives them other suits Spidey has worn. The only catch, besides bad fashion is that these new Spideys die off quickly.

This takes place after the Civil War. Spiderman puts on the black suit after his aunt was shot. He is angry with himself and everyone else, and in the last part Venom comes back and fights with Spiderman. It is a dark and action packed story with some drama.

I prefered this collection to the Amazing collection. Better story, more interesting.
Worth reading just for Sensational Spider-Man Annual #1 - a fantastic stand alone issue.
Beter dab deel 1; misschien omdat ik nu al beter kon volgen in het verhaal?
One decent story, the rest pretty much filler.
