Ultimate Spider-Man Ultimate Collection Vol. 3 collects the paperbacks Ultimate Spider-Man Vol. 5: Public Scrutiny and Ultimate Spider-Man Vol. 6: Venom I'm loving Marvel's "Ultimate Collections," as well as Amazon's bargain prices! At $12.00, collecting Ultimate Spider-Man #'s 28-39 and 1/2, vol. 3 is practically a dollar an issue!

Aside from the price, what makes this trade paperback so good? The creative team of Bendis and Bagley tell the story of a teenage Peter Parker as he learns about the world around him. They've really hit their stride here, capturing the struggles and frustrations that Peter has in a world that frankly doesn't care about him at times. In the first half a thug dresses up as Spider-Man to rob banks, killing a major character. Then [SPOILER] Peter and MJ break up [SPOILER] which leads Peter to find some old videos and a childhood friend, Eddie Brock. The two collaborate on their parents' inheritance, a project to cure cancer which leads to the birth of Venom!

Vol. 3 collects the superhero action in the life of Spider-Man, as well as the melodrama that's at the core of Peter Parker's life. Bendis writes a lot of dialogue, but there are also these panels of Peter by himself, fretting about his life -- and these moments are all the more powerful.

If you're looking for some great Spider-Man stories at an excellent price, look no further: it's right here.

The third installment of the Ultimate Spider-man Ultimate Collection series collects issues #28-39. This is the same as 5 and 6 of the smaller volumes. However, it also contains the special #1/2, which wasn't in volume 5 or 6. Overall, this edition continues the success of the Ultimate Spider-man series.

The art is--once again--exceptional. It is bright and detailed, and very easy to decipher. Motion looks especially impressive. Also, all of the original overs are included, and in their proper places too. Unfortunately, unlike in the previous ultimate collections, no sketches or bonuses are included in the back. Their place was supposedly taken by the special issue, 1/2.

As for the story, there are mainly two. 28-32 is the first, with the second being 33-39. Issue 1/2 stands alone.

In the first story, the villain Rhino is introduced. Regrettably, he's more of a throwaway character, and serves as a plot device--not a true character. He is essentially featured in a cameo. It's a shame he wasn't devoted more time to establish an origin and full story. His character seems to be wasted, in a similar way to how Shocker was just throw in the first ultimate collection--which, by the way, happens again. While it was nice for a villain to return, we still know nothing about him--or Rhino.

The rest of the story revolves around the relationship troubles of Peter and Mary, as well as the occurrence of an impostser Spider-man. The story is okay. It was nice to see insight on Peter's life, but it seemed too exaggerated. The grief between Mary and Peter was pointless and unrealistic--especially since you know they'll be fine in the end. The tension between Mary and Gwen was unnecessary as well. It feels like Gwen's only in the book to make Mary jealous.

This comic collection is down right awesome! Book 3 is really interesting, it seems the more I read, the more I anticipate to get the next one. I already have book 4 and about to get Volume 10 that has Issues #54-59. Brian Michael Bendis did an awesome job!

If I could I would put 0 stars. The quality and everything is great but I'm basing this review on the convoluted origin of venom in the Ultimate Universe. I'm a diehard fan of venom and this version of him is just downright stupid. I thought I'd go off and try some of Brian Michael Bendis's other work but he also wrote the crap storm known as Age of Ultron. I am not a fan of any of Bendis's work and now that he ruined one of my all time favorite marvel characters I cannot recommend this to anyone.

While Amazing Spider-Man and other Spider Man series have high and low points, Ultimate Spider-Man is almost always fantastic. Great art and great writing.
