Overview

The lives, loves, and secrets of three generations of southern women. A hilariously funny book!
Having become infatuated at first sight, Coco enlists the aid of her cousin Daisy to help her gain the attention of Gino, a cute Italian waiter working in a new local restaurant. But both girls soon find themselves in the middle of a mystery that will change what they know about who they are and where their family came from.
Does Grammy really have prowlers? Why does she leave town just to mail packages? And who are the packages being mailed to?
As the mystery deepens, Coco and Daisy wonder how the mystery will end.
Excerpt:
Coco shook her head and gave up. "I can't come right at the moment, Grammy, but I will try to run by later."
"Why can't you come? What are you doing?"
"Having sex."
"Oh, you're so funny."
"I've always thought so."
"The young men will simply think you're vulgar."
"Young men like vulgar."
"Humpf. You don't want to be going out with those."
Coco noticed Daisy motioning to her. "All right, Grammy, I've gotta go."
"Why, what are you doing?"
"I told you, having sex. He's upset that I'm not paying attention."
"Oh, poppycock."
"Bye, Grammy, I'll be by later."

While the idea of giving everyone in New York spider-powers is quite silly, Dan Slott executes it so well that you'll remember why you love Spider-man comics. Additionally there are several issues of Rick Remender's fantastic Venom run and a few one-shots to round out the package. While it doesn't include all of the tie-ins to the Spider-Island story (there is a companion TPB for that), this collection tells a complete story and is a must-read for all fans of Spider-man.

I'm really enjoying Dan Slott's writing on Spider-Man. His run so far has been among the best. Spider Island is a fun take on the Spider-Man mythos with all of Manhattan gaining Spider-Man's powers.
