  •     It's hard to believe that Spider-Man is 50 years old. And, after reading this history of the web-slinger, I was entralled to learn of his skills, strengths and weaknesses, allies and enemies, and, believe it or not, his crazy romances. This is a must read for all comic book readers, Marvel or no Marvel.
  •     My son took this book about as soon as I got it out of the wrapper and went through this edition cover to cover. He didn't read everything the first go round - I don't know if anyone could with all that information included - but was enjoying the beautiful art on every page and would read the bits that instantly caught his attention. It is jam packed with details, scoop and background story so he has a lot of reading ahead of him, but will be happy to do it and that's a beautiful thing! it's a wonderful addition to any Spiderman collection.

  •     My 5 year old insisted on getting this book. I've learne more about Spiderman that I ever knew was available. I feel like his part of the family now! LOL. I've also bought this book several more times for birthday gifts of my 4 & 5 year old's friends . . . I'm sure their big brother's and dad's are "borrowing" the book . . . or at least have fun reading it to the younger kiddos!

  •     Note: Despite the change in title, this Spider-Man Guide is effectively the third revision of the DK "Spider-Man: The Ultimate Guide". The first edition was published in 2001, written by Tom DeFalco. Matthew K. Manning updated the text for the 2007 "Spider-Man: The Ultimate Guide (Updated Edition)", and with this 2012 book Matthew receives the headline credit.A significant portion of the content is retained, however there's also a lot of new and updated material. There are new sections covering the events of "Civil War", "The Other", "One More Day", "Brand New Day" and everything else which has happened in the five years since 2007. There's also new sections that describe in detail the plot lines of some classic issues. Plus, there's a handy "Spider-Man Timeline" which helps set things in context.To make space for that extra content, 16 pages have been added. Also, some of the character profiles from the earlier editions have been cut back from full-page entries to quick paragraphs in an "Other Villains" section.Note also that the book has been entirely re-typeset. Earlier editions featured simple white pages with clean margins. This latest edition is bleed-to-the-edge colour, with much of the text now white font on black pages. Other entries feature black font on color, or black font on white, or often a mixture. The result is perhaps a little less readable than earlier editions. But hey, that's the modern style.Overall, this is a brilliant update. If a young teen in your family has just taken up an interest in Spider-Man comics, then this is perfect way to get them up-to-speed with the latest happenings, and also with the wider history of an iconic character. Top-recommendation.(Content adapted with permission from a review on [...]).
  •     Not sure what I was thinking while deciding to purchase this hard cover. See, I was an avid spider–fan back in the sixties who recently began acquiring trade paperbacks for one last end–to–end journey back into the “Spider–Verse”.But as informative as this DK release is, and it is much more colorfully impressive than the “Look inside” option reflects, it’s kind of counter productive for me to be reading it as I’m reading the individual issues. Such are the joys of retirement, though I am much more at peace ever since I was diagnosed with CRS* last year.So before I forget what my whole point was, let me just say that if you are in the market for a really nice overview of Spider–Man all the way from “Ow! A spider just bit me!!” up to the “New” Miles Morales, this Ultimate Guide shouldn’t disappoint!(*Can’t Remember Sh!t)
  •     great book about the spider-man universe
  •     enjoyed so much...great read...nothing to compare it to except from the library where I used to get it most of the time,,so I am enjoying it.
