Superior Foes Of Spider-man #6 Review

Is this a comic book or some wacky sitcom? Fortunately, it is a little bit of both.

The Good

From the first page to the last, this book is jam packed full of pure fun! With quirky characters, witty dialogue, and a premise that would be at home on Nick at Nite this book delivers a good time that is over too quick. The interaction between Boomerang and Mach VII, the former Beetle, is priceless and I hope they give Mach VII a larger role in this series. The art of Steve Lieber really brings the characters to life and adds a bit of humanity to a group of super villains who steal, lie, and kill for a living.

The Not So Good

There isn't much not to like about this particular issue. The urban legend behind a unmasked painting of Doctor Doom seems like the kind of thing that would exist in the Marvel universe, but the fact that it exist is a little unnerving. I hope there is more to the story than we have learned thus far, but as it stands it is the one "bad" thing in this otherwise great book.

The Bottom Line

Buy this issue, in fact buy 2 copies as a nice boost in sales will let Marvel know it should be writing more books like this one.
