Format: Paperback
Deadly Foes of Spider-Man (1993) collects the eponymous four-issue 1991 Marvel miniseries. It was written by Danny Fingeroth and penciled by Al Milgrom and Kerry Gammill. Here, the Beetle re-forms the Sinister Syndicate, which includes Hydro-Man, the Rhino, Speed Demon, Boomerang, and Boomerang's ambitious girlfriend, to pull off a series of robberies (the Shocker pops up, too). They run into trouble with Spider-Man, the Kingpin, and each other.

What sets this volume apart from pretty much every other Spider-Man comic is that it's written almost entirely from the villains' perspectives, and it includes some very good character development. It's a refreshing change of pace, and it goes a long way toward this comic's readability.

The story itself, alas, isn't so hot. The plot, which would otherwise be okay, turns on an inexcusably staggering number of blatant contrivances and convenient coincidences (yes, even for a comic book), and this includes most of Spider-Man's appearances. Their frequency is damaging to the story, as are a couple of particularly egregious and unforgivable ones. It just isn't good writing.

The art here is not impressive. The diverse and distinguishable faces are a highlight, but the figures are stiff and attempts to show depth on people are often poor. I'm at a loss to explain it - both Milgrom and Gammill have done much better work than this on their own. The inks definitely don't help, though. There are also quite a few cases of miscoloring.

There are a couple of other little problems here that aren't Fingeroth's fault, as they're endemic to the Spider-verse at large. It's hard to believe that many of these villains aren't more competent - especially Speed Demon, who's practically the Flash. One expects better from the Beetle, too.

Format: Paperback
I missed getting this in the individual issues back in the 90's so I picked this up to see what I missed.

This is a story that mainly concentrates on a bunch of C-listers from Spidey's rogue's gallery and what they are willing to do in order to pull off some heists and get some cash and tech for their various needs. Rhino wants to get his rhino suit off him and to get his family to America. Vulture wants to cure his cancer, Leliah (spelling?) wants to get revenge for her late husband, the Ringer. Doc Ock wants to re-create his original arms and the Answer wants to have his physical body back. And Swarm, shows up because I guess the book needed some filler.

The comic collects Lethal Foes of Spider-Man and Deadly Foes of Spider-Man. The story is just middle of the road and if you're looking for a story that focuses on the Spidey, you may want to look elsewhere. However the artwork is not bad and it was kinda cool to see Stegron agan after not seeing him for a long time.

I wouldn't rush out and hunt it down, but if you come across it at the library, pick it up and give it a shot.

The actual Deadly Foes mini, the first half of this book, is a good B-level book. The story moves more or less logically, the artwork is serviceable,the characters engaging. As a discount book, this was more than worth the price.
This goes from a 4 star book to a 3 with the dead weight of the Lethal Foes, the 2nd half here. Poor art, a story that breaks down to a bunch of semi-random events and the faintest hint of character development. Ick.

Format: Paperback
The Sinister Syndicate which is a band of super-villains made up of The Beetle, Speed Demon, Hydro-Man, Rhino, and Boomerang, attempt to put aside their differences and work together once again. Their goal.... Make money. The Beetle puts together a well planned heist and Spider-Man shows up to complicate matters. Things take a different turn when powerful entities surface and one person secretly seeks vengeance for being wronged in the past. -summary

One of the more interesting aspects of Spider-Man has always been his colorful rogues gallery. He has the largest list of villains for a superhero in quite possibly all of comics. One of the most interesting spins on his arch-enemies were the gathering of the super-villain group called the Sinister-Six, whom were founded and lead by Doctor Octopus with the sole purpose on killing Spider-Man. Marvel more than likely enjoyed the idea of the group, and went for another try at it gathering another gang of villains whom would be collectively known as the Sinister Syndicate. These characters weren't exactly on the higher echelon in terms of popularity. However, each of them were well established colliding with not only Spider-Man, but others such as; Iron Man, Hulk, and the Fantastic Four. They were interesting in their own right. The group made their first appearance in the action packed Amazing Spider-Man #280, which is collected in a compilation Spider-Man vs. Silver Sable; this TPB here written by Danny Fingeroth collects Deadly Foes of Spider-Man and its sequel Lethal Foes of Spider-Man, which happens to be his second and third run-ins with the group. The limited series are reprinted in their entirety collecting all 4 issues of both arcs. Definitely a treat for Spider-Man fans who enjoyed the character's run in the early 90's.
