Good book. I enjoyed the artwork and the witty dialogue. Bagley's pencils are amazing and Bendis is a great writer.

This review is for Ultimate Spider-Man vol. 4 paperback edition: Legacy You can never keep a good villain down. That's true for all comic book worlds, including Ultimates, which is why Norman Osborn, the Green Goblin makes his return in this addition to the Ultimate Spider-Man library. Far more twisted and evil than in volume 1, Norman is determined to either own or destroy Peter. Nor is Norman Osborn the only threat presented. Nick Fury, of Ultimates fame, makes his presence known to our favorite wall crawler, upping the level of danger for all involved. The end of the original Goblin is slightly different than in original continuity, and more touching in my humble opinion. Bendis continues to grow and improve with his characterization as he makes these very classic characters his own. The dialog is flawless, appropriate, and flowing as always. His way of showing the madness in Osborn is brilliant, and must be seen. Once you've read those pages, re-read them. It's worth the time and it's too much to take in at once. Bendis is one of the most beloved and well known writers in the comic book industry for a reason, this volume showcases his talents well. Bagley and Thibert also continue to grow and find their own take on the characters. Their rendition of the Green Goblin is horrible, interesting, and chilling. The human characters are marvelously human, which doesn't happen much in comics anymore. While this volume can be read alone, I recommend having read at least vol. 1 before. It is appropriate for all ages, and is enjoyable for newcomers and seasoned collectors alike. This volume reprints Ultimate Spider-Man issues #22-27. Highest recommendations!

I read ULTIMATE SPIDER-MAN Vol. 4...after giving up on Spidey in the mid-Seventies when he seemed to go into a self-pitying tailspin following college girlfriend Gwen Stacey's (and her father, Capt. Stacey's) death. So imagine my surprise when I picked up USM Vol. 4 - only to discover that here Capt. Stacey and Aunt May had a fling, Stacey died...and Aunt May adopted Gwen making HER Peter's *sister*!?!? Like 'red shirt' Guy Fleegman said in GALAXY QUEST, 'Man - that's not right...!' Anyway, if (unlike me) you don't have Gwen Stacey as Peter Parker's 'One True Love' burned into your brain, it's a good reimagining of Spider-Man's early days based on Sam Raimi's SPIDER-MAN films - how he became a superhero rather than a pro wrestler, came to work for the BUGLE, and his relationship w/Mary Jane Watson. I was a bit taken aback at first by the thought of sweet Aunt May as a depressive middle-aged former 'hippie chick' with enough of an temper to tear J. Jonah Jameson a new one(!) - but after the initial shock, I realized she worked better than the Sixties Aunt May ever did. This middle-aged former nerd isn't *completely* convinced that a cutie like the teenaged Mary Jane Watson would fall truly, madly, deeply in love w/teenaged nerd Peter Parker, but I'll go along w/the pleasant fantasy that she MIGHT.... :) It's interesting to see Jameson (presented as nothing more than a blowhard bigot ala the NY POST's and Fox Newz's Rupert Murdoch in the Sixties and Seventies comics) given some shading - he's still a blowhard and a hothead who hates Spider-Man w/a passion, but he also shows both physical and moral courage.

Bendis/Bagely/Thibert have done it again! After all, since THE Spider-Man movie had premiered during the time the issues themselves were being written, it was only natural the Green Goblin was in this story arc. This TPB fills in the gap behind what was the purpose of Osborn creating the OZ drug in the first place. Oh, and not to give away any spoilers, but there are some scenes that are reminiscant of 2 VERY classic Amazing Spider-Man issues. But to find out more, read this TPB ya'self. It's a Spidey story arc the way it's supposed to be!
