Spider-Man Noir explores an alternate history/universe for one of Marvel's greatest. With all the grit and steel of a noir pulp, Spidey encounters the usual rogues gallery with new origins amidst clever hints and nods to fans of the series. Unfortunately, Spider-Man Noir feels more like fan service, delighting readers with, "Hey, remember The Vulture? Well check out this guy..." more than a graphic novel that can stand on its own. In attempting to fit so many interesting ideas into one volume, the story becomes fragmented – still enjoyable, but relatively shallow compared to all this concept could have been.
