Ultimate Spider-Man Vol. 1 - The Review

Ultimate Spider-Man Vol. 1 by Brian Bednis

Spider-Man has been a long time favorite of mine for many years now. Not because he is such a prominent character in the comic book world, but because his storyline is genuinely interesting. Here we have a guy whose life is riddled with tragedy and death. Peter Parker's parents died when he was young and then...well I won't spoil all the fun. If you've never read Spider-Man before, I've already said too much.
