I believe this comic was long over due. True Spider-Man fans have been waiting for the adventure to continue, and what better way then through his daughter. I believe that this comic and be read by people of just about all ages.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

While the core Spider-Man comics were stagnating thanks to the ill-advised John Byrne relaunch, Tom DeFalco introduced Spidey's teenage daughter in an 'unofficial' future. Very quickly it became clear that DeFalco's tales of May 'Mayday' Parker -- wonderfully illustrated by Pat Olliffe -- captured the qualities of the earliest Lee-Ditko Spidey stories plus DeFalco's own great Spider-Man work during the 1980s. Mayday inherits her father's superpowers even though she never knew her dad was once Spider-Man (now retired). This digest collects Maday's six earliest tales (Issues 0-5), which previously were published in an earlier trade paperback. But the digest comes with a friendlier price and a cozier format. The pages may be smaller, but the art doesn't suffer. These stories chart May Parker's uncertain entry into the superhero game as she tries to earn her father's respect, beat the bad guys and keep up her grades. A comic that shouldn't be overlooked, 'Spider-Girl' provides a strong female role model and is among the few Marvel comics suitable for young readers. Even though the Spider-Man books have improved in the last few years, 'Spider-Girl' still swings above them in quality. This book will show you why. Bring on Vol. 2!Was this review helpful?
