    Don't know why I bought this. Maybe it was only because it was a one shot. Maybe it was because Bill Hader is pretty darn funny. Maybe it was because I love me some Spidey, but this is one issue I really regret buying. It was horrible. Not funny, not adventurous, something that I will forget reading in about 30 minutes. It is rare that I wish I could return a comic and get my money back, but this was one of those. Please stay away if you haven't bought it yet. Ugh!!


I wouldn't go that far, but I was surprised at how unsuccessful Bill Hader and Seth Meyers were at writing a funny comic. I mean, I'm impressed that they tried to tell an actual Spider-Man story instead of a straight farce, but they don't seem to have any knack for dialogue, which makes the whole book stilted and difficult.
