HASH(0x9ecd7cc0) out of 5 stars "In another life I was cast in shadow -- and nothing more than a monster." Sept. 17 2013
By para - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This trade contains Free Comic Book Day 2011 (Spider-Man) and Amazing Spider-Man issues #663-665.

Peter's been hard at work balancing two superhero teams, a dream job and a steady relationship. This collection features the hectic schedule catching up to him, as his normal Spider-Man duties intervene.

The opening issue is told via the new Madame Web. It gives a quick summary of Spidey's origin and then features a comedic adventure in which Peter has to face a mind controlled Spider-Woman. There's a layer of ominousness added by the remote Madame Web and the story sets up some interesting threads for the upcoming Spider Island event.

Issues #663 and 664 are the titular Return of Anti-Venom story. This was extremely good, tying together several ongoing plotlines and focusing on reoccurring characters Mr. Negative, Wraith and Anti-Venom. There are lot of important developments and intriguing turns here. My one complaint is the direction of Peter's personal relationships, as he's been making some incredibly stupid decisions that are starting to make him unlikable. Not a good feeling to instill in the reader. That aside these are some of the best issues I've read of Slott's run.

We end with a tale about priorities that calls back to Peter's earliest days as Spider-Man and a couple of short "everyday life" side stories, one for Spidey and one for Peter. These were fine.

Overall a somewhat short but very good collection. I'm particularly looking forward to more with Wraith and Anti-Venom.

HASH(0x9f0297bc) out of 5 stars The Return of the Wraith and Anti-Venom Aug. 7 2012
By B. Daniel - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
As a long time Spiderman fan it was good to see some references to older stories and characters like Jean DeWolf, and the vigilante Wratih. The new Wrait draws heavily on Jean DeWolf's death and it really works well, as does Anti-Venom's return. The character is played as slightly crazy, but truly sincere in his wish to do the right thing, and take down Martin Li aka Mr. Negative. What ensues is a witty team up and sets up long standing feusds and issues for Spiderman. This was a great lead in to Spider Island as well!
HASH(0x9ed873b4) out of 5 stars Not terrible, but not great either Jan. 20 2016
By Adam Nicholls - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
With almost no Anti-Venom in the second half, the title can be somewhat misleading. In fact, there's barely any action at all in the second half, and had only one interesting issue (which felt somewhat out of place). Still, I've never read a particularly boring Spider-Man story, and this was an okay read. But to anybody buying this for the sake of seeing Anti-Venom, you're better off looking for the three-part collection which includes the Punisher.

HASH(0x9ecfabd0) out of 5 stars A must for Spidey fans Aug. 10 2013

If you're a fan of Spiderman or anti-venom I highly recommend that you read this graphic novel. I don't want to ruin the plot but it's really good, especially if you're a fan of Mr. negative as a villain.
