This volume did not live up to the previous installments written by Sean McKeever, I can see why it was cancelled. Nothing about this was believable, the dialogue was so unrealistic it was almost painful to read. The high school drama was an absolute snooze and instead of sympathizing with MJ I found I wanted to slap her whiny ass.

There was one plot thread that I found truly obnoxious and that was "limo girl". MJ is late to theater class and apologizes but the 'director' insists that she act her
Seeing Mary Jane as the main character makes me nostalgic for the late 80s/early 90s Amazing Spider-Man, a book that struck a great balance between being a campy super-hero comic and an engaging domestic drama. Mary Jane was always my favorite love-interest for Peter: a woman who seemed at first glance to have it made but in reality worked her butt off for everything she had; a woman who, instead of silently suffering the lot of what is basically a cop's wife, constantly pushed back at Peter and ...more

After the faltering result of some of Terry Moore's work beyond the rightly-acclaimed Strangers in Paradise (see: Runaways), I was hesitant about picking up the latest installment of Spider-Man Loves Mary Jane - especially with this being the first one not written by series creator Sean McKeever.

This out-of-continuity series doesn't have much to do with Spidey at all. Instead, it follows MJ (much shyer than in the regular canon) and Peter (mostly MJ) into sophomore year at high school as she copes with friends, dates (or lack of) and cyber-bullying. Cute, though I don't think I'm quite the right audience for it.

This was really interesting to see the Spider-man story told in a different perspective. I'm not a huge fan of Mary Jane but I liked her voice in this book and it was interesting to see how she reacted to Spider-Man and Peter differently. It was a nice read and I liked it.

This was...really not that good. Or maybe I'm just not into teen girl drama with a superhero written in as a sort of romantic foil. Mary Jane takes theatre class, works in a salon, has classmate drama, and...lets a teenage Spider-Man walk her home? Ehhhhhhh...not for me.

A nice fun read that would appeal to girls of a certain (teen)age.

I love Terry Moore but this book kinda disappointed. Not a lot of plot per se as opposed to the older ones, and I felt an awkward transition to the new writer.

3.5 Stars.
Terry Moore needs to step away from the pop culture references. Rico Suave? What kid today knows who that was?
