I've seen some of the other reviews complain that Spider-man is hardly in this, which is a fair criticism given that the book is called 'Spider-man'. But there reason he's not in it is because he's in the Savage Land with The Avengers, which I have no problem with. The problem I have though is that most of this book involves Skrulls seeking out Spider-man's friends in New York because they're looking for him, even though he's fighting Skrulls in the Savage Land. Is there some lack of communicati ...more

First off I want to get this out of the way: Why was it called "The Amazing Spider-Man Secret Invasion" if he wasn't in it? Well, duh, because it was done by the creative team that works on the Amazing Spider-Man comic and features characters that are usually found only in that comics pages. A series is more than it's title character, ESPECIALLY when the title character is a single character and not a whole team. It makes perfect sense that while Spidey was off doing other things his supporting ...more

Where's Spiderman? I mean, there are lame first page references to the main Secret Invasion storyline that are supposed to be amusing and fail miserably, but there's no spiderman until the final issue, which unfortunately, feels like a slightly better done version of the old anti-drug freebies starring Spiderman and Cloak and Dagger that were handed out during my elementary school years. This particular issue is somewhat redeemed by Spidey's passionate defense of his own classic "with great powe ...more

Kind of fun seeing how some of the supporting characters of Spider-Man are dealing with the Skrull invasion. In some ways it was more fun than the Secret Invasion main storyline. My only problem was my expectations. Because it had Spider-Man in the title I had expected more of him, but it makes sense that he's minimally in it because of the main event.

Don't really like Jackpot that much.

This is just really bad. To start with, it purports to be all about the Secret Invasion, but half the book is a completely separate story with Jackpot - that's right, it's a Spider-Man book about Skrulls, and half the book has no Skrulls and no (well, very little) Spider-Man. Rhe dialog is cheesy, the artwork looks like something from the early 80s, and it even has those Stan Lee-esque comments about "the idea factory" and the "Mighty Marvel Manner".

The 3 issue mini-series this book collects isn't very good, although I liked the art. The annual at the end was better.

I'm not really sure why this is put as a Spider-Man book as he's not really in it aside from a few fourth wall recaps and a brief end clear up. Plus this repeats the Annual Spider-Man annual with Jackpot which has already been reprinted in the regular collections.

The story itself is ok but nothing great, concentrating on Parker's friends dealing with a Skrull attack. For completists.

This is an odd storyline for Spider-Man, honestly. When the main character of the series isn't even present in the first three books, it doesn't make a lot of sense, and because we know so little about the Jackpot character, it isn't very compelling either. And just when we begin to care... well, read it for yourself if want to know.

So why is it sometimes shooting/stabbing skrulls kills them, but sometimes it doesn't bother them?
Other than have Spider-Man recapping the previous issue -Why is he doing it? and How does he know?- and the excessive notes from the editors about various things it wasn't a bad story. Not great or anything, but not bad.

Secret Invasion was already pretty bad. Secret Invasion: Spider-man is about as bad as it gets. This was god awful.

And the new hero Jackpot? What hero in 2008 would have flared pants? Doesn't make much sense to me.
Nov 16, 2012 John rated it it was ok
This seems to be a book made up of filler instead of anything substantial, and Spidey is only in it briefly. If Jackpot was a more interesting character, I might have enjoyed it more.
Jul 20, 2013 Thomas rated it liked it
Not very Spider-Man centered but still a decent side story to the Secret Invasion stuff. The Spider-Man Annual with a more complete back story on Jackpot is pretty solid though.

Didn't really want to read a Jackpot book.

Well it wasn't bad. Should have been called 'Jackpot' not Spiderman though,as she's the main character.
Feb 17, 2010 raman rated it it was ok
Meh. Only saving grace was the reprint of the annual featuring Jackpot's ID and future...
