This was personally one of the best Spider-Man stories ever & I actually owned the singles issues & tpb version way back in the 90's. So I was thrilled that finally Erik Larsen's Spidey opus was getting the collected hardcover treatment & if your a fan of Larsen's Savage Dragon series this story is right up your alley. "Revenge of the Sinister Six" features plenty of heroes & villains with a mega ton of action that explodes off the panels as only veteran comic scribe Erik Larsen could bring you. Buy this book.

Format: Hardcover
This book collects Spider-man #15 and #18-23 of the 1990s series Spider-man. The first issue telling the tale of Spider-man and the Beast teaming up in a one-off, the last six collect the title story for the book, Revenge of the Sinister Six which begins with the Sinister Six seeking revenge on Otto Octavius, who has betrayed them.

Positives: This book features a ton of guest stars which has positives and negatives. Many of these are quite obscure but among the guest stars are the early 1990s Incredible Hulk and the Fantastic Four. The relationship between Mary Jane and Peter is great as Mary Jane has got the opportunity for a big part but it involves appearing nude and Peter's not happy. The way it plays out shows how they actually make it each other better. In addition to this, the trade paperback features a back up story that ran in these issues in which Spider-man battled Diablo and it's a good story.

Negatives: The book represents typical 1990s artwork which means its kind of garish and tacky in its attempt to be extreme and grity. It kind of goes against one theme of the book where Spider-man points out that he's not one of those grim and gritty heroes. He's old school. It's hard to make the case when everything in the book is drawn 90s style.

The other problem is that with the parade of guest stars and with the Sinister Six itself, the book is hard to follow. Most of the Six are kept off stage for most of the book and other than perhaps Octavius (who has a great battle with the Hulk), none of them is really allowed to shine, and whatever Doc Ock's world dominating plan was is kind of lost on me.

Overall, not bad if you see it a library. Couldn't recommend buying it retail.

If you want to see and understand, in a fun way, the status quo of the comic books in the 1990's, I recommend this fine collection: "Revenge of the Sinister Six", a highly action-packed sci-fi Spider-Man story, with Erik Larsen's art at its best!

Format: Hardcover
Peter Parker and his wife Mary Jane had been discussing having a baby. Mary Jane is uneasy with it due to her acting career about to take off, plus the strong possibility of the baby being born a mutant or something much worse because of Peter's radioactive blood. He searches for a professional opinion from the Beast. -summary

During the early 90's Eric Larsen enjoyed a short run on the non-titled Spider-Man series. This took place some time before he left to co-found Image comics and focus on his own creation Savage Dragon. In 1991 he followed up David Michelinie's The Amazing Spider-Man: Return of the Sinister Six with his sequel Revenge of the Sinister Six. Despite the group being around since 1964, and consisting of six notorious Spider-Man A-list villains, the group only clashed with the Wall-Crawler by then three times counting this story. I understood the re-gathering of this group was a good thing for Spider-Man lore, but I never understood the fascination with this story. I understood even less what got it reprinted three times. Revenge of the Sinister Six embodies all those things that gives the 90's a very bad rep, most notably style over substance and not that great of style either. This TPB collects Spider-Man issues 15, & 18 - 23. I believe issues 16 & 17 were omitted due to not being written by Larsen. However, 16 which was a X-Force crossover can be found in X-Force: A Force to be Reckoned, and issue 17 was added to the Infinity Gauntlet Omnibus.

This is a pretty bad story, and as a fan of Spider-Man and these villains I have to say they deserved much better than this even by 90's standards. The first story follows Spider-Man as he seeks out Beast to speak about the child birth situation.
