Peter Parker Spider-Man Vol. 1: A Day in the Life

The human side of everyone`s friendly neighborhood Spider-Man takes center stage in this collection by hot talents Paul Jenkins and Mark Buckingham. After coming to grips with the second greatest personal tragedy in his young life, Peter Parker reexamines his life and role as Spider-Man. His friendship with fellow super hero the Human Torch is explored, and Spidey`s alter ego, Peter Parker, takes a stab at stand-up comedy. In addition, the wallcrawler must face down the sinister Sandman, but not with his fists, rather, he must face the hard reality that he may be responsible for his enemy`s fatally degenerative condition.

Funny and poignant, these tales put a humanistic spin on the life of the man behind the mask, a life that’s not so much different than yours or mine.

Up until ULTIMATE SPIDER-MAN was released, I hadn’t read a Spidey comic since he was flying around as Captain Universe (I remember the days fondly when the true identity of…

Jenkins is Spider-Man’s savior More than any current writer, Paul Jenkins understands the character of Spider-Man, well-proved here in his earliest Spidey tales.
