    Arghhhhhh time travel. Why? No!! Spidey, fake-sis and Jonah have to travel back in time to save the world... and somehow Zdarsky writes a worthwhile and interesting story with some great cameos from Spidey's past. The annual included in this volume has a pretty interesting Jonah Jameson focused story. Overall a 7.5 out of 12. Arghhhhhh time travel. Why? No!!

    Peter, J. Jonah, and Teresa head to the past to try and save the world and instead muck with the timeline. It's almost like they couldn't be bothered to save the world from an alien invasion. Zdarsky's writing of Spider-Man at this point has pretty much dissolved into slapstick and quips, focusing on Peter's ineptness. I hate this. Peter's a genius, let's focus on that like Dan Slott did. Most of this was just painful for me to get through. The one bright spot is Zdarsky's writing of J. Jonah Ja Peter, J.

Joe Quinones and Mike Allred's art shines on Spidey. It's far superior to Adam Kubert's sloppy, sketchy work on the previous arcs.

    This was quite epic as Peter ans his crew go in the past and they meet their younger self and well they tell him and prevent threats from happening like fighting Dr Octopus or even revealing who Green Goblin really is but well things get messed up and when Young Peter is in trouble and everything, time for Adult Peter to stand up nd big revelations for Teresa.

Finally another story in the present timeline with Peter and Jonah and how he is attacked by his one time rival Bushkin and yeah that story was so good just showing how far Jonah has come from what he used to be and I just loved the art here. Mike Allred just had this silver age like quality to his art and it's so awesome. A must read volume.

JJ is trying to convince his old ass self to be a better person, but of course that doesn't go right. This all leads to some interesting scenarios. Good: Watching a young Peter and older Peter working together is actually really fun. Watching JJ talk to his old self, how he tries to convince him, is wonderful character growth. I also enjoyed the Goblin moment and you can see how that dude is and always will be Spider-man's greatest foe. Bad: The sister plotline feels rushed and not very interesting. The stakes are low because we know none of this will matter to the main heroes. Overall, a fun adventure with some really heartfelt moments. Chip obviously loves writing Spider-man and he does a good job. The stories themselves haven't been special but least his Peter is interesting. A 3-3.5 out of 5.

    When it comes to superhero comics, every hero will at some point experience time-travel and everybody's favourite web-slinger is no stranger to such a concept; I mean he is amazing, sensational and on this case, spectacular. More importantly, he is Peter Parker, something that writer Chip Zdarsky acknowledges, even if the plot-driven contrivance of this title has definitely highs and lows. So, where does this latest volume land? In order to prevent an alien invasion set up by the Tinkerer, Spidey When it comes to superhero comics, every hero will at some point experience time-travel and everybody's favourite web-slinger is no stranger to such a concept; I mean he is amazing, sensational and on this case, spectacular. More importantly, he is Peter Parker, something that writer Chip Zdarsky acknowledges, even if the plot-driven contrivance of this title has definitely highs and lows. So, where does this latest volume land? In order to prevent an alien invasion set up by the Tinkerer, Spidey, his "sort-of sister"/former SHIELD agent Teresa Durand and former Daily Bugle boss J. Jonah Jameson travel back in time. As the trio goes off on their own to apprehend the younger Tinkerer, Peter pairs up with his younger self to make this time in New York a better place, only to make things worse. Although these three issues took a trip back to the Steve Ditko era in the 1960s, as the old Peter is tracing his early steps along with his younger self and taking down villains like Doctor Octopus and Mysterio with such ease, the time-travel concept depicted here is all over the place. Supposedly presented as an alternative timeline where Zdarsky is somewhat writing a love-letter to Ditko whilst applying plenty of time-travelling gags like the classic Nick Fury calling Teresa, Marty McFly. No doubt if you look too closely and if you have an encyclopedic knowledge of pop culture, we wouldn't shame you for nitpicking. Although Zdarsky is juggling a lot, in terms of subplots and dropping gags that don't always land, which are dangerously close to "Deadpool-ing" Spidey, the writer gives some great character moments for the central trio, from JJJ looking back on his faults of criticising a kid playing superhero to Teresa finding out her true parentage. As for the two Spider-Men, the age-gap creates a fun dynamic, whilst finding a new angle into the actions of being both Peter and Spidey can greatly affect the other, such as the emotionally-driven climax where things get way too personal. Having not been a fan of Adam Kubert's rough art throughout this title, I found Joe Quinones' quirkier art fitting better with Zdarsky's storytelling. Certainly during this trip to the past, Quinones fits into the old-school sensibilities of the original Amazing Spider-Man comics including the simplistic gimmicks of Spidey's rogues gallery. The subtle differences between the old and young Spider-Man are impressive, whether it is the classical web-gliders and the youthful Peter looks like the Tom Holland incarnation. Capping off this volume is the Annual featuring two distinct stories from each other. The first of which is written by Zdarsky, is about Jameson becomes the target of his rival from the Daily Globe who sends a robot known as the Jonah-Slayer. Anti-climatic, it does shed some light into Jameson's history where he admits his ego and hatred towards Spidey did no good for him. It may not reach the brilliance of "My Dinner with Jonah", but the final flashback is a nice touch. Although the first story was drawn and coloured by Michael and Laura Allred, proving to be a perfect fit into Spider-Man's world, I can't say the same about Chris Bachalo's amateurish work in the second story, written by Mike Drucker, who has nothing to offer other than to mention a few deaths throughout Spidey's history. Despite the volume being subtitled "Amazing Fantasy", it is neither amazing or indeed spectacular, but it is certainly a step-up from the previous volume. Zdarsky's jokes don't always land, but works best when he's doing intimate character drama than the grand superhero spectacle.

Peter travels back to his earliest days as the Amazing Spider-Man, with Teresa (?) and Jonah Jameson in tow, on the hunt for the Tinkerer and the sole way to save the future from an artificial intelligence invasion. But crossing paths with his younger self may not end well, because when Peter returns to the present, all is not as he left it… That’s more like it! This series has been missing its potential since it launched, but this arc seems to indicate that it’s finally on the right track, and all it took was reuniting Chip Zdarsky with his Howard The Duck collaborator, Joe Quinones, for a few issues. This arc manages to nail the fine line between humour and despair that Zdarsky and Quinone’s Howard run hit, with the optimism of the young Peter and the over-enthusiasm of the older Peter balancing each other really well, even when the stakes get even higher after older Peter’s over-zealous crimefighting spree gets Aunt May in trouble. This is really a tale of two halves, as the impact of Peter’s visit to the past is felt distinctly when he and his companions find themselves in a dystopian future as a result. This feels a little too familiar, because we’ve seen enough stories like this before, but Zdarsky manages to make the arc of the alternate Peter enough to keep things interesting, and his new Spider-Suit is pretty awesome. The real stars of the show are Jonah and Teresa though, as always. Zdarsky’s humour shines through Jonah, while Teresa’s good heart and unerring sense of justice keep Peter on the straight and narrow. I’m glad she’s stuck around after her appearance in the Family Business one-shot, she feels like a valuable addition to Peter’s world that other writers could do with capitalizing on. I’ve already mentioned Joe Quinones, whose timeless art is perfect for a flashback story. His soft lines and expressive faces are what made Howard The Duck so successful at punching you in the heart, and that same skill is on display here. Adam Kubert and Juan Frigeri continue to double-team the latter half of the book, although I’m not sure how much work Kubert is doing these days; at some points it feels like it’s just layouts, while Frigeri does the actual pencilling etc. (Not that I’m complaining, since Kubert’s monthly work has really suffered over the last few years anyway.) It’s only taken three arcs for this book to start showing what it can truly be, and I guess better late than never? Time travel, possible sisters, and a gorgeous fill-in artist make this the most successful volume of Spectacular Spider-Man thus far – hopefully this is a sign of things to come and not just a blip in the system.

    It’s so confusing, reading a book that travels into its own past, at the best of times. But this premise? Lemme see if I’ve got this straight: - they’re going back in time - To resolve a problem in the future - But their time-travel device is set so they can’t affect their past - So they’re going to an alternate reality? How does going to an alternate reality, that can’t affect their past, fix a problem in their present/future? Oh, wait, they’re just there to learn some super-lost info eh? oK, I think It’s so confusing, reading a book that travels into its own past, at the best of times. But this premise?

And with that mind-bender out of the way, there’s some hijinks and time-travel foolishness on the menu. Once I remembered that this “Marvel Legacy” stunt was just some flimsy excuses to somehow jam ancient characters’ older and younger selves together, the magic of this Zdarsky effort faded a little, but only a little. It’s inconsequential and yet treads on the big moments in a way that feels disrespectful, but at least it’s mostly fun.

    More Spider-man fan-service from Chip Zdarsky. This time he takes Spider-man back to the legendary time-frame of the Stan Lee/ John Romita run when Green Goblin killed Gwen and Peter Parket quit spider-man "forever". The story twists and turns to fit with re-creating panels that are homages to legendary covers and scenes, yet remains amusing. The whole concept of the time travel seemed (and still seems) ridiculous, but it is executed in an amusing and fun fashion, that I forgive the stupidity.

    The art really pops as Quinones and Gibson bring Zdarsky scripts to life. Lots of references and throwbacks as Spider-man travels back in time (and meets his past self) to save the future from aliens. Good silly comic book fun that still manages to pack an emotional wallop.

Also I thought the information Teresa got in this issue was pretty cool. The Annual 3 stars. Cool issue I suppose. J Jonah and a rival editor get some closure on their beef.

    This turned out to be pretty entertaining. If you look too closely, things will fall apart, ignoring general comic rules and a couple things just seemingly coming out of nowhere. However, Peter travels to the past to try and stop a future crime, but instead of the usual "don't do anything to mess up the timeline" he does the opposite. It's both funny and satisfying for long term readers.

There's a whole new dynamic between them, ripe with jokes but also growth, especially with Jameson. It just feels fresh yet somehow still "Spider-Man". The Annual in this also highlights this new relationship, showing the contrast between the old and new Jonah.

    One of my favorite parts about comics and superheroes is how far back they go - there's this huge mythology to draw from, and my favorite works reflect on that. This gets into some time travel shenanigans, but also looks at classic characters and why they do certain things. It's a story, but it's more than just the story itself. That's always meant a lot to me. One of my favorite parts about comics and superheroes is how far back they go - there's this huge mythology to draw from, and my favorite works reflect on that.

    Before good ol' Chip Zdarsky crawled along, Peter Parker hadn't been faring too well--and he's still not, but at least this time the famous Parker misfortune is brilliantly written. I prefer my Spidey stories small in scope--muggers, kingpins of crime, things like that--but Zdarsky's interdimensional shenanigans nevertheless capture classic Spider-Man angst.

The art, particularly in those issues penciled by Zdarsky's Howard the Duck chum Joe Quinones, helps bring this amazing fantasy home.

Outing the Green Goblin, almost getting Aunt May killed, etc. The only real good to come out of the trip, other than getting the info they needed, was that Theresa found proof that she really is Peter's sister. A mediocre Volume. Hopefully they up the stakes when our heroes come back to the present to face the Vedomi.... Recommend, but with a little hesitancy.

The guy who, if Spider-Man made a public statement saying water was wet would write an full page editorial on how dry it is. This was more the Jonah of the early 70s to mid 90s who was a much more complex and dynamic character. A man who is, a few episodes aside, good at his core but has some rather large ethical blind spots.

    Time travel shenanigans here with Spider-Man, his sister Teresa, and of course J. Jonah Jameson! They travel ten years in the past in order to stop the Tinkerer’s plans, but in meeting their younger selves things get more complicated. This was an absolute treat to see the characters interacting with themselves from how they were written years ago, and how they have fun with the time line. There’s even some great emotional beats with Aunt May, Jameson, and Green Goblin. Definitely one of the bette Time travel shenanigans here with Spider-Man, his sister Teresa, and of course J.

    Okay so this wasn’t as dumb as I thought it would be but hey it’s still a time travel story that doesn’t really make sense since marvel have been explicit that time travel doesn’t work that way... so it’s still pretty dumb haha. It was a mostly fun read though. I’m more interested in the relationship Chip has made between JJJ and Peter. I understand now why that relationship dynamic is so cool in Slott’s run because he didn’t really develop it - Zdarsky did. Haha it all makes sense now.

    Zdarsky's work on this title started out fun and zippy, but is now starting to get a bit old. The plotting is pretty ridiculous (I don't think I've ever seen a time travel trip as messed-up as this one) and the overall story doesn't really seem to be going anywhere all that interesting. The artwork this time around is a step up from previous arcs, but it really isn't anything too special, either.

    I had such a fun time with this! I randomly picked it up at the library (I've pretty much given up trying to read these things in any sort of order) and was surprised how comprehensible it was. A simple and entertaining time travel story with super-villain shenanigans and the great J. Jonah Jameson yelling all over the place (definitely the highlight of this volume). I might even attempt to continue the series? Or maybe I'll just read whatever is on the shelf. I had such a fun time with this!

    Still loving the series! This was a fun take on time travel--where the time traveler was actually able to make changes and do the things he wanted to do (thanks to it being a different timeline). Obviously, I'm sure there's going to be some sort of repercussions--because why wouldn't there be?--but seeing Spidey using his know-how to best classic villains was oddly satisfying. Plus there was plenty of solid comic book action--I love this series! Still loving the series!

    Wacky time travel shenanigans. That said, surprisingly less zany than I was expecting. Oh well. Great art. I at first didn't care for JJJ becoming such a big character, and I'm still kinda opposed to it on principle, but it is winning me over. I really liked the annual that dug into his backstory.

Is there something wrong with this Spider-Man that he's willing to screw up the space-time continuum so willy-nilly? He must know that he can't do this!

    This was short but it continues to be a really good series. I didn't really buy the whole time travel thing but the art was good, villians were good, humor. This is Spider-Man as he was meant to be (hopefully ASM will join the trend). This was short but it continues to be a really good series.

    I'm really mixed on this. They are reinforcing and updating some Spider-man retconning...but I also struggle with how they are impacting the 616 or not impacting it. It's really weird having Jonah cheerlead Spidey. I'm really mixed on this.

    This went a little crazy time traveling, characters engaging with them selves with some weird results and weirder findings. Yet Zdarsy manage to keep his book fun, funny and inventive. His interpretation of JJJ is awasome. Honestly this is going to be one of my favorite spider book

    I think it was okay except for the ending was okay but just the annual that was put it was okay but I just think the author put bullshit in to finish the comic book and to make it a longer “comic book” his first 2 were better hope the 4 volume will be awesome.
