Several stories here but the best was Mary Jane being threatened with arrest and her reminiscing on why she fell in love with Peter and what they meant to each other.

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.

I was not super impressed with this trade, at least as far as the "Back in Black" stories went. The "Last Temptation of Eddie Brock" was not nearly as compelling as I had hoped and took what could be a very interesting story and made it a snore fest. The best storyline in the whole volume (in my opinion) was the MJ/Peter history told from both their perspectives. Other than that, and the interesting extras with interviews and character guides, I didn't feel as though this was that worthwhile. Ho ...more

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 would recommend this to people that like an action story and is a Spiderman fan.

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.
