Spider-Man is the worst neighbor EVER! There are always crazy villains and property damage and drama and…and he CATCHES the villains. And he tries to fix the damage and he helps carry your groceries and actually that property damage keeps the rents down. You know what? Spider-Man is the best neighbor ever and this book will give you a closer look at Spider-Man's (and Peter Parker's) neighborhood than any book ever. Also, it wouldn't be a Spider-Man adventure without a threat that could destroy not only Spider-Man, but all his neighbors. Superstar writer TOM TAYLOR (X-MEN RED, ALL-NEW WOLVERINE, Injustice) and rising art star JUANN CABAL (ALL-NEW WOLVERINE, X-23) give you the most local Spider-Man ever! Rated T

This was a genuinely pleasant surprise, both in the quality of art and writing AND the excellent repetitive appearances of apples. You'd almost think apples are being used as a metaphor for Tom King Batman dialogue they come back around so often. "Would this be a good apple, Mother?"
Spidey does Spidey things, Peter does Peter things, there's clean line work and words worth reading. 100% approved, coming off the heels of a Golden Globes Spider-Verse win, AND with an cover price ARTGERM variant? Apples.
Be sure to read all the way to end. There's a surprise second story (just like our Dekalb store has!)
I give it 8 out of 10 Grahams
