Comic of the Week (5/4/11) – Fear Itself: Spider-Man #1

By Vince

With another big event in “Fear Itself,” we’re of course treated to a whole lineup of tie-in comics. Event tie-ins have been very inconsistent over the years, with probably more bad than good. However, Fear Itself: Spider-Man plays its role perfectly. It expands on the story of the Fear Itself miniseries, without being required reading for the overall story. At the same time, it tells a solid Spider-Man story without being required reading for Amazing Spider-Man. Fans of one story may check out this title and become interested in the other, which is exactly what a tie-in miniseries should do.
