By Lawrance Bernabo HALL OF FAMEVINE VOICE on September 8, 2004
Format: Paperback
In anticipation of the summer release of the "Spider-Man 2" movie it seemed like every one of the Spider-Man titles put out by Marvel comics did a Doctor Octopus storyline, with a few Doc Ock mini-series thrown into the mix as well. For "Ultimate Spider-Man," the series that has updated the wall crawler for the 21st century by going back to the beginning and focusing on a 16-year-old Peter Parker living next door to Mary Jane Watson, that mean the six-issues of the "Hollywood" story arc (issues #54-59).

This is the one Doc Ock storyline Marvel offered that up in the summer of 2004 that tackled the idea of Hollywood making a movie about Spider-Man. It is not that Spider-Man ends up in Hollywood, but rather than Hollywood brings the magic of movie making to New York City and Spider-Man's home turf. Aunt May is out of town leaving Peter and Gwen Stacy alone and there is a story on the news about a Spider-Man film about to be made in Hollywood, starring Tobey Maguire and telling the story of a nobody/loser who grabs the world's imagination when he puts on a mask. The kids at school are all excited about trying to get parts as extras in the film while Peter can only tell MJ "I live in Hell." Spider-Man goes down to the movie set in NYC to chastise the actor and director for doing this (although he admits "Evil Dead 2" was cool, in a nod to Sam Rammi). Then Doctor Octopus breaks out of jail; it seems he has heard about the movie as well.

Brian Michael Bendis (story), Mark Bagley (pencils), and Art Thibert (inks) have more going on behind the cameras than they do in front in this six-part story.

First Ultimate Spider-Man I've bought for Kindle and not in paperback. This particular storyline isn't very good - the version Stan Lee did in the newspaper comics years ago was more entertaining. More importantly because of the fondness in the books for 2 page spreads reading it on the Kindle was very awkward compared to the other graphic novels I've read there.

I'm hopeful as I get further in the story lines they became aware of this issue and fix it with regards to the Kindle. This did affect my enjoyment and flow of reading enough to cause frustration.

More great work from Bendis and Bagley! This storyline is filled with many comic moments, as well as serious knock-down, drag-out fights between Spider-Man and Doctor Octopus. The Ultimate version of Doc Ock is no pushover, and he has left quite the body count in his wake since the time of his origin and subsequent appearances in this title. Doctor Otto Octavius considers his life to be completely and utterly ruined and blames everything on Spider-Man. So, he murderous madman has only one goal in life now: a dead or suffering Spider-Man. Spider-Man has always known Doc Ock is dangerous, but by the end of the book, he's taking the guy completely serious. No time for witty banter, as he's fighting for his life and is hurting bad. What makes this story even more realistic, though, is how Peter worries that he won't make it home to his Aunt May. Not only will he probably not be home "on time," but he wonders if he'll make it home at all. Very good writing, in my opinion.

This story also features a major revelation for one of the supporting characters at the end of the book, as well as some closure on the problem of Doc Ock. This book sets the stage well for more development between Peter and Gwen Stacy, which I look forward to. Well worth the time and money, I found this TPB to be very enjoyable!

An interesting semi-fourth-wall-break here. Sam Raimi is making a movie about Spider-Man without his permission, and Doc Ock is attacking the set. When Spidey finds out about this, he crashes the shooting of the film and argues with the cast and crew. While I read a lot of this and enjoyed it, I began to think that it could easily be removed from the series and nobody would miss anything. But as is the Marvel way, the closing pages had my heart thumping. Another great instalment to my (so far) favourite comic book series.

Spiderman shows up to complain about a movie being made about him with a nod towards the Raimi/McGuire picture. It just gets worse for him in the usual tradition when Doctor Octopus shows up.

The resolution with Gwen Stacy felt off but the moviemaking inside jokes was amusing.
Some good action scenes with Spidey and Octo. Other characters were mostly same old, same old but that's okay if you enjoy the repeat style characters as I do.

Written by Brian Michael Bendis and illustrations by Mark Bagley with inks by Art Thibert and Scott Hanna.

ARTWORK PRESENTATION: B plus; CHARACTERS/DIALOGUE: C plus to B minus; STORY/PLOTTING/EDITING: B minus to B; ACTION SCENES: B to B plus; WHEN READ: end of December 2012; OVERALL GRADE: B.
