I'm considering buying the Superior Spider-Man when it's released next month, but I had a quick question. Do I need to know anything about what's currently going on in Spidey's life? Other than Spider-Men, the most recent thing I know is One More Day. If I buy the Superior Spider-Man without knowing anything past that, will I be confussed?

I don't know. I only know it's after the Civil War.

Reading Amazing 698-700 would get you up to speed to what Superior Spider-Man is about.

What he said but also try and pick up Avenging Spider-man 15.1 it sets the stage for Superior Spider-man.

Technically speaking, you shouldn't need to read anything before Superior Spider-Man #1.

It's going to be a new Spider-Man so should be a brilliant point to start but I'd recommend getting 698-700 (don't need 699.1) as the event in 700 should be huge, and shape what Superior will be like

The issues you need are Amazing Spider-Man #698-700 and Avenging Spider-Man #15.1
