Spidey, Vol. 1: First Day

Marvel dropped Spidey #1 in late 2015. Now, I have read and seen Spidey’s origin story a thousand times and I was honestly not that excited for another round. But it’s not an origin story. It’s Peter Parker in high school… just going on missions. There’s an episodic quality to it. Even in the first volume (#1–6), you don’t really have an overarching narrative other than Pete’s life—but it works so well. It’s funny, it’s exciting, it’s Peter at his best—which is to say, he’s sort of a doofus and still figuring things out. It is perfect if you loved the Peter we got in CA: Civil War. And it is perfect if you don’t know Spidey at all!
