staff_picks wheatley_staff_picksJason’s Pick :: Superior Foes of Spider-Man TP Vol. 1: Getting the Band Back Together: Say hello to the best book you haven’t been reading. It’s easy to dismiss Superior Foes as a cash grab to capitalize on the popularity of Dan Slott’s Superior Spider-Man title, but this book really has nothing to do with its parent title outside of the name. Nick Spencer and Steve Lieber have taken a handful of Spider-Man’s C-list foes and crafted a dark comic look into the lives of those on the wrong side of the law. This is Marvel’s answer to the Flash’s Rogues – they’re not out to take over the world…they just want to get paid. Take the criminal’s insider narrative of “Goodfellas,” the capers and twists of the “Ocean’s 11” series, and the humor and visual storytelling of Matt Fraction and David Aja’s Hawkeye, mix them together, and you’ve gotSuperior Foes. This book really seems to be flying under the radar, so grab this first trade paperback and see what you’ve been missing.
