What a GREAT hardcover collection for Spidey fans! April 11 2007
By Cindy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
As primarily a Spider-Man fan I was reluctant to explore a silly sounding title focused on Mary Jane... little did I know what I was missing!

Since I kept hearing good things about the title and creative team (and I'm always looking for a good Spidey read), I picked up the first issue of Spider-Man Loves Mary Jane... and was totally hooked!

I shared the stories with my 10 year old niece and she loved it too, but this series is NOT just for girls... I've read rave reviews from the guys too.

I highly recommend SMLMJ... even to all you "mostly" Spider-Man fans. And this hardcover collection is the perfect way to get into this title if you've been curious.

Even though I already own the single issues AND paperbacks that are collected in this hardcover book, it is a MUST have for me... I love this little series that much!

This book will touch you, make you smile and make you anxious to find out what comes next!

"Spidey & MJ sitting in a tree......" March 16 2011
By Michael Noga - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I'm a Spider-Man fan from way back. I remember the issue where he had to wear a paper bag over his head to fight Electro because his costume was in the washing machine. There is a reason that Spidey has become one of the most popular super heroes in the world and it doesn't have as much to do with his powers or costume as it does his everyman approach to life and his stories sense of humor. Stan lee made Spidey relatable and that is his big draw.

In the past decade and a half or more though, Marvel has moved away from all this. They've concocted some kookie ideas for trying to keep the wall-crawler on top. Most have them have been terrible.

This idea was different. It's really, very good. It brings a sense of relatability back to the Spiderman stories but with the twist that it explores them through the eyes of Spider-man's eventual girl-friend and wife, Mary-Jane Watson.

As a guy I thought this would make for a boring story, and I was wrong. There is plenty of good old fashioned web-slinging in this book. Spidey takes on a good portion of his early rogues' gallery throughout. The story does not disappoint in that area.

But it literally does what Marvel has ineptly sought to do for so long; it shows Spiderman through a fresh pair of eyes. I don't want to spoil things for you but this is one angle we've never really seen of Spiderman and that alone makes it interesting. But Spidey is an exciting part of Mary-Jane's life, he isn't the only part and the reader gets to know MJ much better in this story than in all the previous stories from all the years before. She's much more appealing as a person here than she is in the usual monthly series and for the first time you can understand what peter parker saw in her.

It's also a great story for kids, especially little girls. My 6 year old niece loves the book. She thinks it's funny and romantic and includes it right up on the shelf with all of her other favorites. She actually wanted to dress up like Mary-Jane for Halloween, although MJ eventually lost out to Island Barbie Princess. (Hey she's Royalty!)

I'd say it's a great read for anyone. It's got the fun of one of the great old Spidey stories but with a charming new perspective.

The Most Popular "Super-hero's Girlfriend" has her own series!!! Feb. 17 2009
By Aragem - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
If you aren't a fan of Mary Jane then you will be after reading this wonderful series.

Mary Jane is typical popular girl in highschool who loves to hang out with her friends at the local coffee shop, but romance is thick in the air with her crush on Spiderman and being wooed by Harry Osborne, unbeknownst to her that a long time friend is in love with her. Then a Homecoming night that leaves everyone speechless!

Be warned, if you are a hardcore action fan and love explosions, bullet's flying, and violence abound, then this comic isn't for you.

Spiderman Loves Mary Jane is more like a teen soap opera than an action comic, but it done very very tastefully and entertaining as well. If you enjoy stories centered around Love Triangles and unrequited love, then this is the comic for you.

Spiderman isn't the main focus in the comics being that the story focuses on Mary Jane and her point of view, but he does make many appearances throughout the series. Every scene between him and Mary Jane is sweet and endearing and leave you craving for more.

The story is clean and perfectly safe for all ages, though most likely young teenage girls will enjoy and relate to the comics. There is no swearing, no sexual innuendo *kissing and hand holding is the WORST you'll see in this comic* all the characters are modestly dressed, no reference to drugs or alcohol. There are very few scenes of violence, but each scene is tamed down, like what you would see in a Saturday morning cartoon.

MUST HAVE for Spider-Man fans June 2 2007
By Tippy Toes - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This is one of the greatest runs in Spider-Man comics history, and I've read every Amazing Spider-Man comic. This run is destined to be a classic along the lines of Stan Lee's Green Goblin, Gerry Conway's Gwen Stacy, Kraven's Last Hunt, McFarlane's Torment, Millar's Marvel Knights, etc. in the sense that SMLMJ is one of the best written, freshest, and most memorable Spider-Man series.

Mary Jane is the protagonist and she's friend's with all the Spider-Man classic characters. There's Peter Parker, Harry Osborn, Liz Allen, Flash Thompson, and even villains like Dr. Octopus, Electro and more.

Writer Sean McKeever keeps every issue funny, edgy, and addicting. Big things happen every issue and most stories have a twist element and big endings! It's perfect for all Spider-Man fans.

Extra features include a number of pages with script ideas, arc synopsis, numerous alternate covers, coloring processes, & creator bios. The comics look great printed OVERSIZED! This collection is definitely worth it and lots of fun.
Spider-Man Loves Mary Jane BOOK REVIEW! Nov. 3 2014
By Dorky Girl - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I loved almost every page of this book. It was extremely funny at times as well as dramatic but even during the serious moments it still felt like a light heart anime type graphic novel.
The story mostly follows Mary Jane as she get peer pressured into dating Harry Osborn and secretly fantasizing about dating Spider-Man. Harry eventually becomes a bit selfish and dumps Mary Jane when she refuses to help him cheat on a test. After the breakup MJ's best friend Liz's boyfriend Flash sees this as a opportunity to try and have a relationship with MJ even though he was still dating Liz causing major drama. Just when Mary Jane starts to fall apart Peter Park offers her tutoring sessions which blossom into a friendship. Out of no where one day after Harry Osborn blows up on MJ for something she didn't do Spider-Man shows up at her bedroom window taking up on MJ's offer to go on a date. The date that Mary Jane wanted so badly with Spider-Man turns out not living up to Mary Jane's fantasy, it also doesn't help that Mary Jane can't stop thinking about Peter.
Mary Jane comes to her senses about dating Peter but she might be to late because of the arrival of a new student.....Gwen Stacy.

My Thoughts: I loved this and I can't wait to get my hands on the next volume!
