Perfect for new readers
I think this first volume of Ultimate Spider-Man is a great starting point for new readers. I've been a long time fan of Spider-Man and I really enjoyed this reboot of the series. Ultimate Spider-Man brings us back to the beginning of Peter Parker's adventures - without having to go through decades of backstory - and it is adapted to modern times, which I thought was well done.
In my opinion, the only downside of this first volume is the slow pace at the beginning of the story. It takes a bit of time for everything to be set into place and for the action to pick up, but I still found every page entertaining and the slower pace didn't make the story any less enjoyable for me.
I would absolutely recommend this book, it's definitely worth reading whether you're a new reader looking for an introduction to Spider-Man or a long time fan who might enjoy a different version of your favorite character's story. I've read a few volumes of the series now and so far they're all excellent.
