Publisher's Summary

Peter Parker is caught in a complicated web. Working in a cutting-edge laboratory, he's a young scientist who's trying to make a difference. Yet he's constantly burdened by the responsibilities of his second career as the crime-fighting Spider-Man. 

Wilson Fisk - the so-called Kingpin of Crime - has returned to New York, establishing himself publicly as an altruistic entrepreneur and philanthropist. Spider-Man knows better, but he can't uncover Fisk's scheme, which, if executed, will make the crime lord too big to fail. 

When a new threat - a deadly doppelganger with Spider-Man's suit and abilities - wreaks havoc in the streets, can the real wall-crawler prove his innocence? With the clock ticking and lives on the line, can Spider-Man stop the brutal rampage of the Blood Spider? Will Spider-Man fall to his fears and foes, or will he rise and be greater?

Wow! What a great prequel to the game. It all makes sense!

It had such a satisfying end. It linked right up to Spider-Man swing into Fisk tower to take him down and it was a seriously good book. Worth a read if you are a marvel fan.

It is a graphic novel.

This really reads like one. And a lot of thought went into this. I played part of the video game and some pieces do slide into place. Think of it as a crossover novel. As a stand alone you want to know what happens to Echo and Mary Jane. I could listen to it again when I am just grapping a story to hear.

story was everywhere

i feel like this story was trying to do too much for too little. Mary Jane and Peter Bickered the entire book. Also Spider-Man was barely a presence there.

Well put together

Pete Cross does a good job as the story progresses it appears that he gets more comfortable changing his voice for each character.
The story is well written for a great prologue to the Insomniacs Spiderman. After listening to this book it makes me want to play the game all over again!
Could it have been better of course… does it have to be? Not really!
It was very enjoyable GOOD JOB!

Great lead-in to the game.

Overall, loved this. My only gripe is that it felt like the reader didn’t do his research prior to his reading. Several characters were given voices and inflections that didn’t match the characters in the game. (Examples being Shocked or Jeff Davis)
Not looking for 1:1 representation, but the distinct differences just felt jarring.

That said, I felt he was an excellent narrator, Peter Parker, and MJ. I felt he nailed Yuri as well.
