Publisher's Summary

STUPENDOUS! 

Of course it's stupendous. It's ol' Spidey himself in his first - yes, first - full-length novel. 

SINISTER! 

When a baddie drops out of a sky-high window (Did he jump - heh heh - or was he pushed?), Daily Bugle publisher J. Jonah Jameson wants Spider-Man to take the rap. Has the wall-crawler come to the end of his rope? Does his life hang by a slender thread? 

GLOBAL! 

To swing clear of this one, he's got to snoop on an international oil conference. There's blackmail! Radioactivity! And a welcoming committee of death-dealing arch-villains! 

DIABOLICAL! 

Who's behind it all? Think hard, ‘cause we're not telling. But it just might be that too much tendril looms large in Spider's formidable future!

This book is okay

My real star rating would be more like 3.5. What we have here is the very first Marvel novel from 1978. I would say that this book is fine, but rather uninspired. The main villain’s plot is dull and uncharacteristically banal. Considering the bad guy is a classic Spidey foe, I expected better.

Spider-Man is written well, as are JJJ and Robbie. Everyone else is just sort of there.

Anyway, this book is fine. But you shouldn’t expect to be blown away by it.

Old school - not my cup of tea

If you enjoy the style of the Golden age of comics, you might like this. To many “wall-crawler” or “web-slinger” references for me. Underlying story not bad, although laboured at times. Performance only as good as the text unfortunately.
