    1. Nothing fills me with horror more, than trying to pull together (and make sense of) the threads of a huge Marvel crossover event.Of the ones I’ve read of this particular series, Fear Itself is an overview, but leaves a lot of plot points hanging./review/showFear Itself: Ghost Rider is just strange./review/showWhat this volume does right is it narrows the focus of the story. It isn’t just that the world is overwhelmed with fear and panic, we get to experience it firsthand via Spider-Man. He [...]

    2. I never picked this up at the time but thanks to Marvel Unlimited I can see what I missed. Heavily part of Spidey's 'no one dies' mantra the Fear Itself tie in focuses on the street level events as Pete, exhausted and frayed tries to do what he can, feeling like a very small player in a larger event. His fear is palpable though lacks subtlety (mostly with him just stating how afraid he is) and his finding Aunt May is reserved for the main title.Still, its nice to see Vermin again and he fits thi [...]

    3. The SPider-man part is the best. The FF is pointless and teh worthy is a series of teasers/promotional material that doesn not develoop the characters.

    4. I found the crossover event Fear Itself to be enjoyable, if not as good as other events. But the tie-ins have been hit or miss; a few stand outs but most are only so-so. This is definitely one of the stand outs.Though he's been on teams, Spider-man is mostly a loner. Here, we see him grappling with seemingly insurmountable odds and self-doubt. He knows he isn't the one who can stop what is happening (what the heck is happening?!) so he just tries to hold the line while the Avengers grapple with [...]

    5. I was expecting the whole book to be about Spider-Man, that it wasn't almost pulled this down to a 3-star rating. The first section was about Spider-Man. This part was good. If the whole book had continued in this vein I might have given it a 5-star rating.The second part was a brief look into the Future Foundation (Fantastic Four). This part was ok. I was disappointed to reach this part because it meant the end of Spider-Man's story, but it wasn't so bad in and of itself.The third part was a se [...]

    6. Fear Itself: Spider-Man #1-3. The Spider-Man story manages to catch the fear missing from so many of the Fear Itself stories, and the story has some really nice character moments for a few folks, but it’s also way stretched out (including a totally pointless fight with Vermin) and not much actually happens [6/10]. Fear Itself: FF #1.The FF story shows off Angrir to better effect than anywhere else, with little parasites whispering into Ben’s ears, but it ultimately has the same problem as mo [...]

    7. This was divided up into 3 parts."The Worthy" one-shot, which was really a series vignettes, one for each of the hammer bearers. It was interesting but they were focused on the bearers rather than the powers possessing them. I thought it would be more interesting to know about Angrir the Breaker of Souls, but I get that it wouldn't have the emotional impact of Ben Grimm struggling with his insecurities.FF one shot - I never followed Fantastic Four or as they're called now the Future Foundation. [...]

    8. Another one of those Fear Itself titles I was talking about in my last review (what, you aren't reading these things? I'm shocked) that I picked up for super-cheap at Books-A-Million. That deal they have with the Graphic Novels for under $10 is amazing. They're cheaper than the second-hand bookstore with these titles. Alas, I didn't like this very much. Spidey fighting evil/possessed Thing was pretty awesome, but the whole 'I'm afraid' thing that permeates the book gets old to me after a few pan [...]

    9. Not bad. The three issues of Fear Itself: Spider-Man are very good - a compelling story arc with nice artwork and well-paced. They have strong character development but with some action mixed in. There are two other issues in this as well (Fear Itself: FF and Fear Itself: The Worthy), which aren't nearly as good. Fear Itself: The Worthy is a collection of origin stories, each with a different writer and artist. It just seems like a mish-mosh, though some of the lesser known origin stories aren't [...]

    10. The title of this tie-in should better be Spider-Man / The Thing. Because half the book is about spider-man and the other half is about The Thing as Angrir/Breaker of Souls. In the background of the two superheroes there are some individual stories of innocent people suffering the Fear. And in the end: spider-man, completely worn out, has to fight The Thing. There is also a small part about The Thing vs. FF (or Reed & Sue) and a private introduction about The Worthy.

    11. So yeah, probably because of the new financial year, the library just got in its first big batch of new comics collections since December. That means there'll probably be a lot of these over the next week or two. Apologies to anyone not wanting the details of my consumption of stories in which men in spandex lay about each other.

    12. Some nice moments looking at how fear has affected individuals, like the woman who's pregnant and the man losing his home. It tells the story of Fear itself mostly from Spiderman's perspective and that of a journalist. FF deal with The Thing changing. Spiderman fights his own fears of losing everybody. A good read.

    13. I really liked the Spider-Man one. So often the comic book battles focus so much on the big bad and defeating him, but, really, in some ways in the real world, it's just as important to try and save all the regular people. I like when the comic writers/creators remember this. And Spider-Man is the one to do that sorta job for sure as well.

    14. The Spidey half of the book was great - darker than I expected, well paced and well told. The second half is made up of Fantastic Four bits and some back stories to other characters. Some interesting and a *lot* of spoilers to those who've not kept up with recent events in the Marvel Universe.

    15. The 3 part Spider-Man arc is a nice story about hope in the face of fear. but the extra stories added on just feel like a need to finish a quota

    16. The Spider-Man and FF tie-ins were pretty good, The Worthy was a waste of time just rehashing old well-known origin stories.
