Spider-Man: Family Business

Marvel is back in the original graphic novel (OGN) game and Amazing Spider-Man: Family Business is the company’s newest entry. In the Marvel 616 universe Spider-Man has been through a lot of changes, to say the least. In Family Business that doesn’t change as readers are introduced to Teresa Parker. Surprise Pete! You have a sister.

Writers Mark Waid and James Robinson put together a very fun, fast paced story. Dan Slott has done a masterful job with his current run on Spider-Man but it was welcoming to see other writers take on the wallcrawler. The writers add mystery, and fast paced excitement that has Peter questioning aspects of his past while dealing with the dangers imposed by The Kingpin and Mentallo.

The painted artwork of Gabrielle Dell’Otto is absolutely beautiful. The man is a master at what he does and he doesn’t disappoint here. Dell’Otto paints over Werther Dell’Edera’s pencil and the combination works masterfully. The art also fits very well to this format that is slightly larger than a normal comic book. It adds so much to the story and feel of the book.

Amazing Spider-Man: Family Business is very entertaining in every aspect you would want an original graphic novel. It’s not bogged down by what’s going on currently in the world of Spider-Man so it makes it new reader friendly while still having enough there to entice long time fans of Spidey. With an intriguing story and fantastic art this book will make a great addition to any fans bookshelf.


Someone has Spider-Man in their crosshairs and the only person in the Marvel Universe who can save him is…Peter Parker’s sister?! As the web-slinger meets family he never knew, will she end up becoming his greatest ally…or the one who damns him? And what does the KINGPIN have to do with it? This all-new, original graphic novel, written by Eisner Award Winning writer Mark Waid (DAREDEVIL) and acclaimed author James Robinson (Superman), and fully painted by the legendary Gabriele Dell’Otto (SECRET WAR) comes to you in a high-end, oversized format to give you the web-slinger’s darkest hour – and greatest triumph!

AMAZING SPIDER-MAN: FAMILY BUSINESS is available now in book stores, comic shops, the Marvel Comics app (for iPhone®, iPad®, iPad Touch® & Android devices) and online in the Marvel Digital Comics Shop. Trailer Voice-Over by Jesse Falcon.
