Spider-man Family was as short lived comic book published by Marvel from February 2007-June 2009. This book collects Issues 1-3 and takes stories from throughout the Spider-man history and stories featuring Spidey back up characters.
Issue 1 features a story of Spidey wearing the black suit that's just boring dreck. The back up story featuring Black Cat is just plain lame.
Issue 2 is a more current story featuring Spider-man battling Venom, but Venom for once interested in fighting someone else. This was a decent story and probably the highlight of the book. The back up featuring the Lizard was again weak.
Issue 3 has a good story featuring Spider-man and the Fantastic Four from early in Spidey's career. It's fun, but really not on par with the classic stuff. The back up story featuring Matt Gargan as Venom battling the new government agent calling herself the Scorpion was fun even though I had no clue who she was.
Overall, this was a hit and miss book. It has its features and the digest is available dirt cheap. Just be warned you get what you pay for.
