Product Description

It’s not easy being a superhero when you’ve got a steady job to hold down and girlfriend problems to deal with. Somehow, Peter Parker (aka Spider-Man) manages to do it while regularly saving New York City from a rogues’ gallery of super villains. In The World According to Spider-Man, the wisecracking hero spills the beans on how he balances his two lives and manages to keep his trademark sense of humor, even while he’s tangling with Doc Ock or the Green Goblin. The book comes with a wealth of incredible removable items, including clippings from the Daily Bugle, Peter Parker’s report card, J. Jonah Jameson’s business card, Spider-Man’s driver’s license, an exclusive Spider-Man poster, and much, much more.

Editorial Reviews

Modern Myth Media: “. . . serves as a great, nearly all-encompassing guide to the character for young fans. It is light enough for younger reading levels while still being dense enough to turn a novice Spidey-fan into an intermediate level expert . . . a fantastic resource for anyone of any age who’s enjoyed the character in broader mediums and wants to know more. It’s an excellent bridge to connect that love for the character that started in films and animation over to the source material.”

BioGamer Girl: “. . . a magnificent book that combines great writing, artwork and humor alongside a great presentation to really bring the Spider-Man character to life. It was really neat to see the world through the eyes of a superhero and the pop-up inserts really added that extra touch to bring the entire experience together.”

Spiderfan.org: “it the mark . . . The all-new artwork is top-notch and supports the jokes with a deceptive ease . . .This book is genuinely chuckle-out-loud funny at times. The style is zany and irreverent, and the gags consistently h The 'extras' are great fun too. They further enhance the impression of quality and attention to detail that pervades this book.”
