4.0 out of 5 stars Spectacular Spiderman Jan. 17 2013
I thought this book was allright, actually it is pretty interesting how little crossover there is between the amazing spiderman and the spectacular spiderman.

From the point of view of JAN 2013 there is a very interesting story about gun control from 1980 which ended with the question does anybody know what to do ? Because criminals dont care about the law and the underground or the mafia or organized crime couldnt give two hoots about gun law, especially if they are dealing in forign countries.

This book is worthwhile reading if you are a fan of spiderman and its not only for completists. The spectacular spiderman series to this point has held its own ground.

5.0 out of 5 stars Spectacular May 16 2007
By Samuel C. Kerby - Published on Amazon.com
Some people are turned off by the black and white reprints like these essentials. But you get so much for the money, and there's hours of reading enjoyment. These essentials are a great way to read or reread comics from the past, without having to fork out the large bucks that the after market sellers are asking. Granted some of these issues are corny, but they're still enjoyable to a 40 year old like myself, who grew up reading these issues.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Spectacular Ed Hannigan Aug. 5 2010
By Hwy61Joe - Published on Amazon.com
Just as with the previous Spectacular Spider-Man volumes, this one treats its readers with an all-star lineup of talent: Roger Stern, Bill Mantlo, Jim Mooney, John Byrne, Frank Miller, Al Milgrom, Rick Leonardi, etc. While the talent is without question, I considered knocking my rating down to four stars due to the lack of consistency. It seems no two consecutive issues were produced by the same creative team. In the end I stuck with the five star rating because it is still so enjoyable. The highlight of this volume is the work of Ed Hannigan. Hannigan is a highly underrated artist in comics history and the proof lies within these pages. He is known primarily as a cover artist and for his contribution to the creation of the characters Cloak and Dagger. The stories that he draws are the best in this volume. His cover designs, page layouts and Eisner-esque splash pages are second to none.

This volume of Peter Parker is essential to your collection. Some good ol' innocent Spidey adventures with some good writing. It also contains the legendary Cloak and Dagger introduction. Good to read on a plane, train, automobile, etc.

4.0 out of 5 stars Peter Parker The Spectular Spider-Man is still good. May 5 2012
By Dylan Luciano - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
While I liked the earlier volumes of Peter Parker the Spectacular Spider-Man I was a bit disappointed in the supporting cast like Phillip Chang and Peter's other college buddies that were thankful not to appear in the main title. The White Tiger Hector Ayala (a character that unfortunately died in Bendis run on Daredevil) was actually somewhat underused and I was disappointed he wasn't given more chances to shine.

In this volume more story-lines are developed instead of Peter Parker fights random villain of the Marvel Universe which was very entertaining but somewhat repetitive. Spider-Man has to deal with keeping his secret from Debra Whitman a girl he has one of those classic "I wonder if they know I like them" bits in fiction that seems to go on forever. Debra Whitman is a character I would had completely forgotten about if it hadn't been for the 90's Spider-Man cartoon. While I liked what was being done with the character I also wanted to see where she was in the main Spider-Man comic. He also fights minor superheroes Cloak and Dagger who are some of my favorite characters in the Marvel Universe.

The volume actually ends with a gangway between the Owl and Dr. Octopus which I was very interested in. I look forward to getting the next volume. Peter Parker The Spectacular Spider-Man also has the Death of Jean Dewolff story which is one of the best ones in comics. (Although that isn't until way later down the line. In fact considering that these comics contain about thirty issues tons of Peter Parker the Spectacular Spider-Man Essentials would have to come out for it to fill all #250 issues.)
