Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Michael Jung
What if Spider-Man had a daughter? Long-time Spider-Man writer Tom DeFalco and artist Pat Olliffe answer this question with Spider-Girl, a popular Marvel comic book selected as an "excellent choice for girls" by the American Library Association. Set in an alternate future where Spider-Man has retired, the series follows the adventures of Spider-Man/Peter Parker's teenage daughter May "Mayday" Parker. In Legacy, May discovers she has inherited her father's amazing powers and decides to continue the family legacy as the spectacular Spider-Girl! There is just one problem—Peter Parker does not want his only daughter risking her life in a dangerous environment he knows all too well. Familiar arguments between overprotective parents and rebellious teens take on a whole new twist as May struggles to convince her parents she can be a costumed adventurer. This library-friendly digest contains Spider-Girl's original issue and the first five issues of her comic book series, making it an excellent introduction to the character. Reluctant readers, particularly young girls, will enjoy Olliffe's photorealistic artwork, while Tom DeFalco's use of second person narration will make readers feel they are Spider-Girl as she swings through the city.
