I am a long time Spider-Man fan from my toddler days and I have to say that since the end of Back in Black I have not been much of a Spidey reader. I was very turned off by the whole Brand New Day and only glanced at a few stories here and there. During the Initiative era there was one issue of Avengers: The Initiative that caught my eye and it featured the Initiative trying to depower Spider-Man to replace him with the Scarlet Spiders. I thought Dan Slott was phoning in his desire to write Spider-Man (who had rotating writers & artist) and now, he has arrived.

In My Honest Opinion, Dan Slott has done to Peter Parker what has been decades in the works. He has taken the very intelligent Peter Parker and given him the life that he has long since deserved. Is everything perfect for Peter? No, that would be dull. However, Peter is not the under achiever everyone always wrote him as before either. He is using his scientific knowledge and (new) resources to make himself the Spider-man we have always wanted to see.

His first challenge? A new Hobgoblin. The identity of this individual is given in this story and the character is very interesting and entertaining. We also get a glimpse at the next story arc which ushers in even more changes for Peter.

I highly recommend this book for any fan of Spider-Man.

Big Time spiderman starts with a bang in these four issues, and don't worry about being jipped for only 4 issues, for all these issues are extended lengths. This is a really good read for new readers, but is especially fantastic if you've been keeping up with events since avengers disassembled or are very aware of the spidey canon. This is because of references like Mac Gargan, goblin history, dark reign, spidey fighting with the avengers, and the kingpin's involvement with the hand. His team up with black cat is great and his new suit is awesome. Reading these makes playing that suit in marvel vs capcom 3 even better! Overall a great read that keeps you engrossed with its stellar art, character development, and energized plot. Keep in mind the cover is not as it appears on amazon, at least for the hardcover edition. Its cover is the same as ASM 648.

I stopped regularly reading comics when I was a teen, but would from time to time buy a trade or something to scratch the odd comic itch. Eventually I got to wondering what the ole web head, my boyhood favorite, was up to. I had picked up "Ultimate Spider-man" vol 1 and really disliked it, so warily I decided to give Dan Slotts work (which I had read good things about) a try, and I must say I really enjoyed it. In fact I enjoyed it so much that I bought the next 4 trades and am presently reading through them. I am even considering starting to buy the title monthly once I get all caught up, and I honestly can't say that any other random trade purchase over the years has sparked nearly so much interest.
Its fun and goofy without being TOO goofy, its modern but doesn't seem like someones dad who trolled facebook for a week to pick up kid lingo and interests like comics so often do. "Just right" Spider-man, in my opinion.

I will say a lot of the art is much glossier than I prefer, but the stories are fun and well written enough that it doesn't matter that much.

Highly

"Big Time" translates well to the Kindle. I own the original books. Enjoyed the storyline immensely. The Kindle version makes for a great read also. Only drawback(as with EVERY comic translation!): Two page spreads are almost unreadable. Once this problem is solved, most comics will read great.

This is a good Spiderman book. Not the best I must say, but a lot of things are right.

The hobgoblin is portrayed rather deftly. That said, I prefer newer villains, this feels a bit stale. I like the other villains better.

The set pieces are good, but the story lacks real tension before the very end.

"Spider-Man: Big Time"
Written by Dan Slott
(Marvel Comics, 2011)
----------------------------------------------------
Well, I certainly didn't expect this to happen: I really kinda liked this book! I was a Spidey fan, many many years ago, but haven't really picked up a copy of Amazing Spider-Man in, geez, maybe even a couple of decades. I did get hip to Ultimate Spider-Man (and mourn its passing) but after all those tedious years of clones and clones and clones and multiple Carnages and Venoms (and all that horrible Todd Macfarlane art) I just gave up on regular old Spidey books. Then there was that whole Mary Jane-never-happened deal with the devil thing and I thought, sheesh - forget it! But I stumbled across this volume, picked it up cheap and really enjoyed it. Dan Slott's writing has some good old Peter Parker pizazz, and the artwork was kinda fun too. I'm thinking I might pick up a fer more of these recent collections and see how it goes. Make Mine Marvel! (Again!) (Axton)

This book has the new chapter of Spidey life, the life he should deserve and the right evolution of this character, Dan Slott has the perfect joke's timing and Humberto Ramos' art is what makes this book great, if you're a fan of spiderman and hate One More day then you will love this, if you're not then this an excellent way to begin to read this character.
