4.0 out of 5 stars A great view of the Spider-Man world thorugh the eyes of his foes, November 19, 2011
This review is from: Spider-Man: Deadly Foes of Spider-Man (Spider-Man (Graphic Novels)) (Paperback)
At long last, Marvel has reprinted two of the best Spidey mini-series ever. "The Deadly Foes of Spider-Man" was unique when it came out in 1991 thanks to its great concept: Telling a Spider-Man story from the point of view of the bad guys. The Sinister Syndicate (Beetle, Rhino, Boomerang, Speed Demon and Hydro-Man) get together to pull some heists, first to pay off some debts the Beetle has with the Kingpin, then themselves. It's a great look at how these guys plan, get their equipment and work together when Spidey shows up on the scene. Of course, this mix of egos have clashes, leading to a massive battle in New York under Al Milgrom's fine pencils. Meanwhile, the Kingpin is working his own unique plan, briliantly done behind the scenes while the Shocker throws himself into things too. The character stuff is great like Rhino wanting to be freed of his suit and a woman who has a personal stake in things. The second mini-series "Leathal Foes of Spider-Man" isn't quite as good although interesting mix of bad guys under the command of Doctor Octopus. Both are written by Danny Fingeroth, a great guy who gets the voices of guys and overall a good showcase for how the bad guys are just as important a part of the Spider-Man mythos as the Wall-Crawler himself.
