10 of 10 people found the following review helpful By David Horiuchi on April 30, 2007
Format: Hardcover
This is a nice collection printed on good paper with some Wizard magazine bonus features, but first, I'm not sure about the math. There are five different stories spanning a total of 12 issues. Second, leaving out the classic Stan Lee-Steve Ditko era, the Stacys, etc. makes me wonder if I missed something--is this supposed to be "the 10 Greatest Spider-Man Stories Ever... from the 1980s" or another kind of restrictive qualifier?

The contents:

Nothing Can Stop the Juggernaut (1982, Amazing Spider-Man 229-230, Roger Stern writer, art by John Romita Jr. and Jim Mooney)

Hyde & Seek (1982, ASM 231-232, Stern/Romita Jr.)

The Kid Who Collects Spider-Man (1984, ASM 248, Stern writer, art by Ron Frenz)

Death of Jean DeWolff (1985, Peter Parker the Spectacular Spider-Man 107-110, Peter David writer, art by Rich Buckler)

Venom Strikes Back (1989, David Michelinie writer, art by Todd McFarlane, ASM 315-17)

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase

This is supposodly the 10 greatest Spider-man ever!! But one side note, there is only 5 stories, the book is only volume 1 apparently and Wizard stopped making hardcovers so there is only one volume.

Nothing Can Stop The Juggernaut ASM #229-#230: 8.5 - Great story showing off Juggernaut's power.
Art: 19
Main Villain(s): Juggernaut, 10 + Black Tom Cassady, 6 = 16
Story: 18
Action: 18
Ending: 18
Overall:89, Must Read

Hyde & Seek ASM #231- #232: 7.5 - Pretty disappointing and tame, nothing special about this one
Art: 18
Main Villain(s): Cobra, 5 + Hyde, 8 = 13
Story: 18
Action: 16
Ending: 17
Overall: 82, Check It Out

The Kid Who Collects Spider-Man ASM #248: 9 - The twist at the end really makes this comic go from good to great
Art: 17
Main Villain(s): N/A but the twist should count so.. - 20
Story: 18
Action: N/A, but the story is so good it deserves a 18
Ending: 20
Overall: 93, Must Own

Venom Strikes Back ASM #315-317: 8 - Everyone says it is spectacular but I disagree
Art: 19
Main Villain(s): Venom = 20
Story: 16
Action: 17
Ending: 15
Overall: 87, for some reason I still think it doesn't deserve a 'must read' symbol, but for venom fans, you should read this.

Death Of Jean DeWolff; Spec. Spiderman #107-110: 9.5 -The best story in the book, its fantastic
Art: 20
Main Villain(s): Sineater = 20
Story: 20
Action: 20
Ending: 19
Overall 99, One point off from getting a hard 100, a 'Must Own' comic all the way.

Now finally I shall review the bonus features, which were a big reason for me buying this graphic novel.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book is a great way to collect 5 popular storylines of the 1980s from the issues of Amazing Spider-Man and Spectacular Spider-Man. These stories are often referred to as some of the best Spidey Stories of all time, but can be difficult to find in reprint without paying an arm and a leg. Through Amazon, I was able to get a new edition for about $10 including shipping, and I thought it was well worth the price.

1) Nothing Can Stop the Juggernaut!- ASM 229-230.
2) Hyde & Seek- ASM 231-232
3) The Kid Who Collects Spider-Man- ASM 248
4) Death of Jean DeWolff- SSM 107-110
5) Venom Strikes Back- 315-317

In addition, you will get an introduction from Brian Michael Bendis, background information from the writers of each story, and several more extras. I believe that for the inclusion of Jean DeWolff and Juggernaut alone this hardcover is worth it, as their reprints are few and expensive, but the rest of the material puts it over the top. Another reviewer commented that this only includes 5 stories out of a claimed 10 on the cover of the book, but I believe this was only the first volume in what was to be a two-volume set before Wizard stopped producing hardcovers.
