Between keeping New York City safe as Spider-Man, being a member of two Avengers teams and the FF, and his day job at Horizon Labs, Peter Parker's life is as crazy as it's ever been. And it's about to get even crazier. Welcome to Spider-Island, where a million New Yorkers suddenly possess Spider-Man's powers - but none of the responsibility! Can Spidey play world-saving super hero while the Big Apple gets eaten alive from the inside out when he's suddenly not quite so special? When he's surrounded by a million people just as powerful as him? When even his girlfriend is web-swinging through the city? And just wait until you meet J. Jonah Jameson, the Spectacular Spider-Mayor!

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
While the idea of giving everyone in New York spider-powers is quite silly, Dan Slott executes it so well that you'll remember why you love Spider-man comics. Additionally there are several issues of Rick Remender's fantastic Venom run and a few one-shots to round out the package. While it doesn't include all of the tie-ins to the Spider-Island story (there is a companion TPB for that), this collection tells a complete story and is a must-read for all fans of Spider-man.
I'm really enjoying Dan Slott's writing on Spider-Man. His run so far has been among the best. Spider Island is a fun take on the Spider-Man mythos with all of Manhattan gaining Spider-Man's powers.
