I'm not sure if I've ever actually read a prose version of an actual comic character which wasn't a novelization of a film (I read the original Superman novel back in the 70s) but I love comics (and this book was written by Adam-troy Castro, an acquaintance) so I figured I'd give it a shot.

It's good. It's also the first book of a trilogy and so sets things up nicely for the next two installments. In this one, a mysterious villain known only as The Gentleman (original to this series of books) is

My actual rating is 3.5 stars.

This is the first book of a trilogy. It is a book that takes place in the Marvel universe. Even though the title suggests this would concern the Sinister Six, they are the minor storyline.

This was an enjoyable read and this author has penned several books in this universe and I have not read a bad one f

I've grown up watching the Spider-Man animated series, and I thought I should give this book a try. However, it takes on a darker feel than the shows featuring the web-slinger. This book had certain elements that are completely different from the animated series, but still a good plot.
An old friend of Mary Jane's has died, and a lot of people are saddened. However, Mysterio appears at the funeral and mocks the man, attempting to murder the people on the site, but is stopped by Spider-Man. Mary J
