Publisher's Summary

Beginning with a novella by Spider-Man's co-creator Stan Lee and veteran Marvel writer Peter David retelling the wall-crawler's origin, this exciting anthology has original stories featuring one of the world's most enduring heroes. 

From Tom De Haven and Dean Wesley Smith's look at Spidey's early career to David Michelinie's portrait of a dying reporter who wants his last story to be the revelation of Spider-Man's true identity and Lawrence Watt-Evan's tale of a boy whose web-slinging hero-worship leads to tragedy - plus stories by Craig Shaw Gardner, Richard Lee Byers, Ann Nocenti, and many more - here are spectacular new Spider-Man adventures!

Great Collection of Novellas and Short Stories

I got this expecting a continuous story. That wasn't what I got. I was also expecting this to be based off the Ultimate Spider-man comics. Didn't get that either. This, however, was fantastic. I'm really glad I picked this up! The collection is fantastic!

Solid short story collection!

I really enjoyed this, even the first story that's yet another retelling of his origin, but is made somewhat unique by hearing in book format. The Mysterio short story is a real dud (it legit makes no sense, felt very rushed with a complete lack of ending), but otherwise this is very enjoyable, with excellent narration throughout by Rivera, particularly his JJJ! Definitely recommend it!!

exciting at first

i was excited from the foreword from stan lee and the first chapter, but then the story turned into life lessons and morals we've heard 1000 times. them rivera does a great job bringing everyone to life but the stories are lacking in some regard or are too predictable. I enjoyed it but some things felt forced or unnecessary.
