Essential Amazing Spider-Man, Vol. 9 by Marv Wolfman
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Marv Wolfman's run in the first 2/3 or so is really good with many of the bst issues I've read, while it slowly corrected many character mistakes that Peter and his friends often exhibited. It still had its issues, but it was really great and intriguing overall. Unfortunately, like most writers, he didn't stay on forever, and unfortunately not that long, leaving way for an immediate plummet in writing quality, including nonsensical stories that set up boring confrontations and not much else. That brings the overall rating for this collection down a bit. I'd say the last third is also unnecessary reading, so feel free to put it down after page 400 or so.
