Superhero comic book stories are straight up bonkers I m not sure how I haven t really noticed this before, especially after seeing Alan Moore deconstruct them so well in Supreme, but when an author summarizes all the events that have happened to a given character when introducing them in his story, it gives attention to it I mean, Razorback the character should be a clue, but when you find out he went to space and fought Thanos well, sometimes I m a little dense.I think part of what Castro was doing with this novel was highlighting just how ridiculous the stories are His own story uses Mysterio an ex special effects creator who goes on a crime spree after being shunned by the movie industry who isn t quite as ridiculous as Razorback, but still crosses that line, as his plots getandelaborate andandunbelievable.I read the book because I like what I ve read by Castro, and in the sense of it being an engaging, intriguing story, I wasn t disappointed It reads like a comic book story, which is fine, since that s what it should be Spider Man , it s just odd to see it all written out in a narrative style, because that somehow makes the incredulous seem even MORE incredulous

again to my readers I think it s time I return to the realm of auditory superheroes So why don t I bring us back to the friendly neighbourhood Spider Man Unlike last time with Spider Man The Darkest Hours this isn t an adaptation of a comic book storyline but as far as I can make out a storyline completely original to a trilogy of novels written by Adam Troy Castro Although said novels do appear to be inspired by some version of the Spider Man comic universe Possibly the comics from the mid to late 1980s or very early 1990s In other words this is a different Spider Man than the excellent Tom Holland version from the MCU Once again Dreamscape Media has released a very entertaining audio adaptation The original novels were released as a connected trilogy in 1999, 2001 and 2002 respectively To date only the first part is available on audio although I hope that will soon be rectified especially with the prevalence of Spider Man in Dreamscape s heroic output The plot is as follows There is a figure in the underworld known as The Gentleman He is very very rich Very very dangerous And alongside assistants of sorts such as The Chameleon and a few others, he isthan willing to finance the destruction of a certain wall crawling nuisance And The Sinister Six, such as they are, can be useful to his plans However there is one slight issue One member of the Six Quentin Blake otherwise known as Mysterio has his own plans for revenge But against who or what and how are his victims connected Can Spider Man connect the dots and save Mysterio s targets before they become anypersonal than they already have Especially given the Hollywood connections to said crimes Not to mention Mary Jane s latest big action picture Fatal Action 4 Spidey only has a matter of days and the clock is ticking This is definitely a fun listen It very much feels like a true Spider Man story managing to balance the superheroics with Spidey s civilian life as Peter Parker Mary Jane feels very much like her classic self with a definite bite to her when needed Especially when the story becomes personal to her Alongside MJ we have some entertaining appearances by J Jonah Jameson owner of The Daily Bugle and Spider Man s biggest Fan , various other members of the Bugle staff, Flash Thompson and a last minute assist from one particular fairly obscure D List hero I suspect the writer may have a soft spot for Speaking of heroes, Spider Man s quips are quite entertaining when they appear although he knows when to joke and when to keep his mouth shut unlike certain other versions Castro is also particularly adept at his descriptions for combat Be it Spider Man s attempts to knock Mysterio silly, Mysterio s frankly horrific illusions, or certain strikes from out of nowhere You definitely find yourself caught up in the action and in the general plot Just how will the Web head get out of this one When it comes to the narration for this release we have a different narrator than previously Instead of Jack Meloche, Tim Paige is in the spandex and mask and performs quite well indeed His Spider Man and Peter both feel very believable especially when things get serious I also loved his voice for The Gentleman who felt very intimidating unlike a fair few super villains Also his Mysterio is excellently melodramatic with an appropriate level of arrogance and self confidence for a stunt man with ideas above his talent level One fairly major plot critique is regarding the Sinister Six part of the plot As much as I loved The Gentlemen, only a relatively small part of the storyline seems to directly involve The Six Mysterio on his own is the vast majority of the focus The Six s part of the plot is definitely a lead in to the two other sequels that as I said aren t on audio yet I certainly hope that the sequel novels will appear on audio alongside those which have recently been released or released in the last year or so In conclusion I definitely consider this a very entertaining Spider Man adventure for Webheads Especially those who want to get an audio fix of Spidey and friends or want a flashback to an older period of Peter Parker s costumed antics I ll certainly keep an eye and ear out forHowever I think next time I discuss superheroes on audio perhaps I should discuss the Extremis problem Sayonara Nephrite This is the first book in the Sinister six

happens in the Superhero s life without straying too far from the points that we are use to I don t want to completely ruin what happens Because it has enough twists and turns to keep the readers in suspense Unlike in some other superhero licensed things, it doesn t throw in elements that throw off the counter balance of the story Another cool thing about this book is that it has a cartoon panel at that beginning of each chapter to give it that Comic book feel As a fan of Super Heroes it made this already great book even better I must say that Mr Castro did a great job of capturing the very essence of the well known web head and his friend s and enemies alike This one joins my Blockbuster Book Club
