    With great power, there must also come great responsibility — and when those in power abuse it, it’s the people’s responsibility to remove them. The year is 1933, and New York City is not-so-secretly run by corrupt politicians, crooked cops, big businesses…and suave gangland bosses like New York’s worst, the Goblin. But when a fateful spider-bite gives the young rabble-rouser Peter Parker the power to fight the mobster who killed his Uncle Ben, will even that be enough? It’s a tangled web of Great Depression pulp, with familiar faces like you’ve never seen them before! By “Hardboiled” David Hine, Fabrice “The Spider” Sapolsky and Carmine “Carbine” Di Giandomenico!

    Spider-Man stories have ranged from light hearted romps to dark and gruesome tales to just about everything in between. Given that this series is a noir tale, I expected that it would lean towards the darker end of the spectrum, but not nearly as much as it did. The creative team didn't hold back as they re-imagined all of Spidey's normally colorful cast of characters and origins. (Uncle Ben's death is particularly disturbing.)As far as story is concerned, this isn't anything new. Powerful gangs...
