Summary: 24pp (Spider-Man Appears)
This is the absolute basic "super-cheap colouring book" version. It contains 24 black and white line art pages.
The same line art has already appeared in at least six other books already. The pages are a random mix of Spider-Man, Thor, Avengers, and Wolverine/X-Men. No attempt is made to produce a consistent story.
Spider-Man appears in approximately six of the pages.
A few of the pages are "character galleries", constructed (it appears to me) by cropping individual characters out of scenes and then pasting them onto a blank page. It's an effort to at least "rework" the images, but it's purely a token gesture. There is really nothing new here.
Even the rock-bottom NZ$2 price and bright new cover art can't save this tired old re-hash from a two-webs rating.
