Instead of doing my usual "this is awesome because" or "only thing that bugged me was", I'm going to make a list that better have you clicking the buy button by the end of it. *ITSY BITSY SPOILERS WARNING*
1. Jason Aaron wrote it
3. Adam Kubert drew it
4. Spider-Man grows a manly beard, twice
5. Wolverine teaches prehistoric man how to make beer
6. You'll never guess who's behind it and it's very clever. It's not a crappy "aw come on really, him?"
8. Dr. Doom is a planet
9. Spider-Man and Wolverine bickering at each other is hilarious

HASH(0xa2c48168) out of 5 stars Snikting webslinger... Sept. 23 2011
By Sam Quixote - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Spidey and Logan are somehow in the Jurassic era! What the heck is going on here!? And THEN they're in the future where lots of mini-Logans run the world? What the heck! And THEN they're in the super future and the middle ages and THEN...

So it's a time travel story with two of Marvel's best loved characters, the chatty and pun-ny web slinger teamed up with the angry monosyllabic Canuck with an almighty chip on his shoulder, having at each other as they try to figure out what's going on.

I think if you approach this book as simply a fun, sometimes even funny, story with lots of interesting visuals and some excellent back-and-forths between Spiderman and Wolverine, you'll get more out of it. It's not really a straight story nor one with a particularly interesting explanation or resolution. Spidey sums it all up in the end by saying "sometimes stuff just happens...". And that's what this book is, stuff that happens.

But it's entertaining stuff at least. Jason Aaron's grittiness and sobriety is missing thanks to having to adopt Peter Parker's genial outlook on life and he's got his voice down perfect, as he does Logan's. To be honest, the story felt a bit overlong once you realised what was happening, but it never became unbearable. Adam Kubert's artwork is fantastic throughout, as always.

A fun romp teaming up two mis-matched but still endearing characters and setting them loose into a bizarre, but interesting, story. A decent read but by no means essential.

HASH(0xa2c2336c) out of 5 stars What comics are about-- Jan. 22 2012
By Matt Keyz - Published on
Format: Hardcover
This is exactly what I needed from Marvel. A title that was just amazingly fun. I can't go into how much I had been out of Marvels loop. I mean the last great marvel story I had read was "Secret Invasion"-- People told me to give Dan Slotts spiderman run a chance, and though it was good-- It didn't feel right for me. People told me to read Aarons run on Wolverine though, and I thought it was great. Soon I read Punisher MAX and felt like this guy could be onto something-- and he was. In this little gem that my friends told me to buy in issue form and in collected form. It was the first Marvel book that I read and actually had fun. In a world where everything is over the top serious and doesn't know what fun in a comic is anymore, this book does the complete opposite. The banter between the angry stocky Wolverine against the witty and fun spider-man works like harmony. Aaron has his Wolverine down to the t-- and has Peter Parker nailed down pretty good as well. This book is a must have (My opinion though) for any Spidey, Wolvie, or just a old Marvel fan that wants to have fun again. This is what comics from the big two should be like.

HASH(0xa2c48150) out of 5 stars What? How can you give this book low stars? Aug. 9 2012
By D. Johnson - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I got this hardcover for $4.00 shipped. I only bought it because it was super cheap, because of some bad reviews. After reading it I would have paid full cover price. This is the best Astonishing book out besides Joss's X-Men. It is a little camppy at times, but just enough to be fun. I mean what do you want for a time traveling tale about a wise cracker and his favorite strait man. It is not the best story for either of them, but it is one fun romp. I read it all in one sitting. Aaron and Kubert put another one out of the park.
HASH(0xaa6c56d8) out of 5 stars 21st Century Marvel Team-Up! Aug. 3 2012
By Sean Rueter - Published on
Format: Paperback
Big stakes without the usual bluster. An irreverent tale that is big on the madcap ideas and dynamic action pieces that fans of superhero comics love. Six issues with a couple of Marvel's flagship characters, by creators who know how to handle them. Enough laughs, drama and even a touch of pathos to make you feel like your time was well spent.

If any of that sounds good to you, you'll enjoy the cumbersomely titled Astonishing Spider-Man and Wolverine by Jason Aaron and Adam Kubert. If you are a newer (teen or older) reader looking for a stand-alone adventure with versions of the leads that you'll recognize from other media but that won't require a long-box worth of backstory, try this collection. Aaron brings his superhero A-game (not as good as his creator-owned - Scalped Vol. 1: Indian Country - A-game, but still darn good); Kubert is a consummate professional who can really deliver on the big scenes (even if I found his art a little sketchy in the smaller moments, especially later in the book).

Will Astonishing Spider-Man and Wolverine change you, the universe or even its characters forever? No. But it's a well-executed, fun book full of what people love superhero comics for.

HASH(0xaa6cb7d4) out of 5 stars VERY CINEMATIC Sept. 9 2013
By fmwaalex - Published on
Format: Paperback

Have you ever read something and right from jump you are thinking "I don't know about this" only to love by the time it is over? That is exactly what happened to me when I picked this up, at first I wasn't into it but by the time it was over I was a little sad I had to stop reading. I have read this many times since it was first released and each time I love it. This is while being a six issue miniseries really epic, especially from an emotional stand point. The characters here go through a lot and our two leads go through so much more, especially with each other.


We start out with Spider-Man and Wolverine millions of years in the past with no idea how they got there. They live in different areas of the place they are in with Peter trying to figure everything out while dreaming about some woman. Logan on the other hand seems like he has given up hope. But just as the event that lead to the death of the dinosaurs is upon them they are now traveling from time period to period. They have no idea how this is happening but it seems to have something to do with some diamonds, and why is Parker still seeing this woman?

This is one of those books that you will either really like or really hate from what I can tell. Like I said earlier at first I thought this wasn't going to be for me but I was wrong. I really enjoyed this story and wanted to know how all of this happened just as much as our two heroes. The mystery behind that was interesting but in all honesty it was really the relationship between Peter and Logan and how it progressed that really hooked me. Everyone knows that these two never really got along and for most of this book that remains. But they slowly form a bond being in this situation together that grows into them coming together to be blood brothers. It is the ending that really brings this together and got me, add in the thing between Peter and the woman he sees in his dreams, and man I just loved it.

Then of course there is the action in which I don't think anyone would be disappointed here. There are many fights and different ones at that depending on the time period. This of course is all brought to life by artist Adam Kubert. He did an excellent job with this series as the images on every page seem so cinematic. In fact all that along with Jason Aaron's story would make an excellent movie. It could even be an animated feature from Marvel, whatever I don't care because I would own and see it either way. The ending that I was speaking of earlier itself was very cinematic in the way it played out. I really loved that ending and really enjoyed this book.
