    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.


My first novel, The Listeners, is in bookstores now! Check it out at www.harrisondemchick.com!
