Critic Consensus: “The Collection expands on the world of its predecessor, offering more grisly, gratuitous thrills and twisted humor; in other words, fun for fans of the genre, but potentially unpleasant for anyone else”
I’m like the J. Jonah Jameson of Everything Action, writing and editing and constantly demanding pictures of Spider-Man.
