Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Michael Jung
Of all of the villains he has faced, no criminal has caused Spider-Man more problems than the Green Goblin. But when a thief steals some of the Goblin's special gear, Spidey finds that there's another Gobin in town—the villainous Hobgoblin! Now, Spidey—and all of New York City—are in the middle of a Goblin war as the Green Goblin challenges his usurper to a battle that will decide the one true Goblin! This short, self-contained "Marvel Age Spider-Man" story provides a kid-friendly version of Spider-Man's classic stories, modernized for a 21st-century audience. Some long-time fans of Spider-Man's villains may find themselves scratching their heads at certain points; after all, while the Green Goblin and Hobgoblin have been portrayed as homicidal masterminds in many Spider-Man comics, here they come across as flamboyant petty criminals. Even so, for new comic fans looking for exciting action, the book provides a fun, fast story. This is largely thanks to Cory Hamscher's dynamic artwork and Fred Van Lente's snappy patter. While this book is definitely recommended, the high price of this library-bound version may be tough on some budgets. Librarians would be better served with the digest versions of "Marvel Age Spider-Man," which collect several issues in affordable volumes. Reviewer: Michael Jung
