I really enjoyed the tragic Gibbon storyline - you feel really sorry for him. I was a little peeved that a few issues were just Spectacular Spider-Man in colour. The Doc Ock storyline was amazing - the fights between him and Hammerhead were great. I also loved Doc Ock's corruption of Aunt May.

There are lots of fun story arcs in this volume, ending with Spider-Man battling the Hulk in Canada. And we've got a great mystery to tie us into the next volume--what's going on with Aunt May?

Classic storytelling

This started off a bit slow, but picked up after the first arc. It was really interesting reading the story about the NY mayoral election as it featured some similarities with the recent Presidential election in the US.

The Marvel Masterworks volumes are fantastic reprints of the early years of Marvel comics. A fantastic resource to allow these hard to find issues to be read by everyone. Very recommended to everyone and Highly recommended to any comic fan.

Spiderman has a lot of foes to fight in this book. The Gibbon, Doc Ock, Hammerhead, Smasher and the Hulk. Nothing major ongoing storyv line wise, he's still dating Gwen. Though the Doc Ock plot with Aunt May is interesting and will have long term effects. A good read.
