Wilson Fisk is the new Mayor of New York! (I’m not that surprised is I remember who is the current President, geez), but suprisingly, good ol’ Fisk doesn’t try to arrest that public menace of Spidey, but even thank him for facing the criminals……but of course, he’s Kingpin alright, so it’s no wonder that soon we’ll get the full picture of his new game plan of taking the City Hall through votes. ROAD TO INFINITY COUNTDOWN Everything is Infinity!!!It’s not rare that we have an Infinity event to come, since Marvel even from the days (now ten years ago) when Iron Man 1 was on theaters, it’s normal that comic books are getting adjusted to fit with the mood on the latest theatrical films, so……we have a good guide of what the heck happened with your favorite space team, the Guardians of the Galaxy and how their journey has lead them to meet (once again) the Inifinity Stones.Where maybe, just maybe, we can especulate if some stuff that it’s explained there, it can be useful to guess about what could happen with certain character in the next Avengers 4.

    This was okay. It had some funny moments, Nick Spencer gets a lot of Peter's voice right, and I loved the Art. However, the storyline has been there and done that feeling X100. I really just wish they'd take Spider-man to new places, because this is getting a little too boring. I also think the humor is a little too deadpool at times. Either way I'll give it two full arcs because love Ottley and Nick work most of the time.

    WELLLLL!!!! i am NOT a spider-man fan at all , like i’ve never been a fan of him. i have a vivid memory of crying and having a mental breakdown when i was 4-6 because my mom was forcing me to watch spider-man with all the other kids at a party.but THIS was good!! it’s leading up to the new spider-man series and i might...... i might start reading..... because this was so entertaining.

    I'm really into superhero movies, especially the ones Marvel comes out with. I love how they take me to a world where I feel thrilled and like being powerful. Seeing the heroes on the big screen sometimes makes me feel like I've run for miles. It literally gives me adrenaline.So I do want to get into comics, I think? They seem really cool, but also a little hard to understand. There's all this references and throwbacks to other issues and there's just a lot to choose from. Where do you start?

This Free Comic Book Day issue is kind of a good start. It features two of my favorite superhero franchises (moviewise). It certaintely didn't dissapoint, but I have to say reading this comic is like a whirlwind. You just have to go with the flow, but it really moves very fast. There's a lot of villians I don't recognize and the ones I have really unexpected developments.That being said, I did enjoy it. Especially the Spider-Man comic. Peter was funny and brought a smile to my face. The story was quick but had some good moments. It did make me want to read more.I'm not sure about the Guardians of the Galaxy bit. It's sort of a summary of all the things that happened, but it's just so much that it lost me. My eyes flew over the words and pictures, but it was just me trying to get through it. I do like that Starlord has the same references and vibe as the movies. Reading this was fun, but a little overwhelming. I'm really not sure if I should just pick up a Marvel comic up. Where do you start if this all referenes other stuff I haven't read? I still have an Avengers comic for Free Comic Book Day laying around, but I think I'll go for my other free comics first...

    Het eerste deel over Spider-Man was wel grappig en begreep ik nog, maar de tweede helft over Guardians of The Galaxy was echt het vaagste ooit. Iets met stenen die ze zochten???

    The voices are good, the humor is good, but this really feels like a step back. It feels like a reset in a bad way, like we are just stuck in the past. Development is a good thing, I hope we don’t completely disregard it.

    I got this one late at Halloween ComicFest, left over from Free Comic Book Day. I hadn't read Amazing Spider-Man, though, so it was new to me. I have been hearing about some of the story details, so the ending wasn't particularly surprising, but it was a solid book, throughout. The art is well done, and Peter's voice is, as well (I particularly liked the bit about wheatcakes). It is a bit of a change, since the last time I read Spider-Man, he was an international CEO, but I can see why that wasn I got this one late at Halloween ComicFest, left over from Free Comic Book Day.

The second half sort of goes over what has been happening in Guardians of the Galaxy, which I also haven't been following, so it was a decent catch-up, and has me a bit more interested to read more of that in the future. I suppose if I had realized it was an older issue as I was picking it, I might have gotten something else, but just the same, I enjoyed this book.

    2 stars for Amazing Spider-Man & 1 stars for Guardians Of The Galaxy. Thank goodness this was free because I would have been highly disappointed with my purchase. I have never been a huge fan of Spider-Man. I have always found his holier than thou attitude slightly annoying. This version of Peter Parker looks like a college graduate who is just trying to find his place in the world. Seems interesting enough but his one liners while in battle annoys me. The artwork was vibrant which I enjoyed 2 stars for Amazing Spider-Man & 1 stars for Guardians Of The Galaxy.

The artwork was vibrant which I enjoyed and the story seemed interesting but not enough for me to seek this series out fully.I didn't like anything from Guardians Of The Galaxy. I didn't like the artwork and the way the panels were placed on the page. It was a bit much for my liking. The story didn't make any sense to me and I don't care to read anything in that series.

    Though I'm more of a fan of Spencer's then most people these days, this did little to get me excited of his Spider-man run. It's not bad, it just seems like more of the same stuff we were getting from the Slott run which I got tired of around the time Spider-island happened and though I do eventually want to read the rest of that, seeing that this isin't going to be anything really that different or even that same but better quality left me kinda meh on it.

    Fuccin Nick SpencerI got this ish for free comic book day (2019, I'm a year late) and I didn't realize it was Nick Spencer. Who I'm still mad at.It's not bad but I'm a little bored by this 'back to basics' stuff. It's cute and it's Spidey but how you gonna erase all his character development like that? Boy's been through a lot in fifty years, and you wanna just throw him back to the beginning? Weak.

    Like most of the free comics, it's a short burst of action with a reasonably-interesting set-up for more adventures to come. Cool, I guess? The Guardians of the Galaxy bit at the end didn't work for me at all, though.

    C'mon guysThis preview of the upcoming next Spider-Man revamp makes me want to stop liking Spidey altogether. It's almost like they took Archie and stuck a Spider-Man costume on him. I really can't see how this will be any good.

    So apparently this is from the same author as ‘Superior foes of spider-man’. I think i prefer this issue than that trade. Randy is a new character to me but I like him and I am interested in the antics that will arise with Peter needing to live with one of his foes. That sounds fun.

    It's not The Fix, but my interest is piqued. My main complaint is that this teaser was such a tease. I'm definitely gonna pursue this one, now that I've had a taste.
