    1 thought on “Spider-Man: Blue”

    1. Jeph Loeb – the man who made having no ideas into a decades-long career in comics – brings his bafflingly successful approach to Batman over to Spider-Man. His approach? Tell stories that have already been told! With Batman, it was the fall of Harvey Dent in The Long Halloween, and Robin becoming his sidekick in Dark Victory; with Spider-Man Blue, it’s tangentially about the death of Gwen Stacy – but crucially, Gwen doesn’t die in this book. She’s also barely in the book. So wait… [...]

    2. Spider-Man: Blue is a sort of flashback/retelling of how Peter Parker and Gwen Stacey originally met and fell in love. With MJ thrown into the mix and Peter moving into the city with Harry Osbourne, the plot mirrors parts of Sam Raimi's 2002 Spider-Man film.The story is narrated by Peter as he records the story into an old tape recorder that was previously owned by his Uncle Ben. He remembers these early years when he took to the streets of New York, stopping some of the strongest and devious su [...]

    3. If you want your emotions trampled on it's always a good bet to pick up a Loeb & Sale trade because they're the best, the story and the artwork always work so well together. I'm not the biggest Peter Parker fan, i rarely pick up anything to do with him, (plus Miles is the best spider-man so y'know jog on Parker.) So i did just pick this up purely because it's done by Loeb & Sale and again i was not disappointed, i'm emotionally ruined now so thanks. It is quite short though and i do thin [...]

    4. Hayatının bir döneminde çizgi roman okumayı sevmeyen ben için bile, bunca zaman karşılaşmamış olduğuma deli gibi gibi üzüldüğüm nadir şeylerden biri bu. Mutlaka okuyun! Özellikle de çr okumaya yeni başlayacaklar için mükemmel.

    5. Re-read. This is still the best of the color series. What makes this story work so well is Peter Parker's narrative. We have the context of Gwen Stacy's death and this retells part of that iconic story but this would be an average book without Peter Parker's voice. He is funny, charismatic and typically full of charm. So, when you combine that with the weight of his grief over Gwen Stacy and the wistful tone of his good memories of her, it makes for a very compelling story. Everyone knows how Gw [...]

    6. I've never been a great fan of Spiderman, because I find his personal life to be a little too sappy. The movie franchise has made him even worse as far as I'm concerned because Tobey Maguire just doesn't fit into my mental picture of Spiderman at all.However, Tim Sale's art in this one is really, really good! The story isn't great. The overall premise is that Spidey is narrating the tale of his love for Gwen Stacy and her untimely death into an old tape recorder. Not a great thing to do, conside [...]

    7. Very good storytelling but 3 stars cause its nothing new. Peter Parker records the story about how he met Gwen and how he is still missing her

    8. Up until last night I would not have considered myself an active fan on Tim Sale's art. I recognized that his work was definitely quality, but he was never a "favorite" artist of mine. Just a guy who's work was pleasing when he drew something I wanted to read.Holy hell did that just change when I read Spider-man Blue for the first time. I was blown away. I don't think I've seen sexier women in comics than the way Sale drew MJ and Gwen. I hate to belittle another artist to bolster another, but Ed [...]

    9. I happened to read this one at the perfect time, just after The Night Gwen Stacy Died, and then Marvel Masterworks: The Amazing Spider-Man, Vol. 4. By the end of that volume, Peter and Gwen start to become friends and I believe it ends only a few issues before Mary Jane Watson appears. This book shows how Peter, MJ, and Gwen met and interacted during the period up until Pete and Gwen finally got together, punctuated with Pete's collisions with the Green Goblin, the old and new Vultures, the Rhin [...]

    10. This is not a good book. The art is beautiful, yes, but the story just isn't there. The framing sequence is that Peter Parker misses his first love, so he records himself fondly reminiscing about their early days - while his wife is asleep or downstairs or something. It's creepy, even though MJ does make an appearance at the end to share her perspective, because it feels like I'm supposed to sympathize with someone cheating on his wife with a memory. And then the story doesn't justify the awkwar [...]

    11. I'm a Spider-man fan who prefers John Romita Sr over Steve Ditko. That's one of the reasons why I really like what Loeb and Sale do with Spider-man: Blue, because it's based on the first 9 issues that Romita Sr drew and for me it's a great interpretation of some classic stories while also adding in their own things. The story is told through the point of view of Peter himself, who is narrating his time with Gwen and early days with MJ into a tape recorder. The whole book is an out of continuity [...]

    12. I'm starting to see what people don't like about Jeph Loeb.When I read his Batman, it works, but that's probably because I haven't read a whole lot of Batman.Spider-Man? Well, to say I've read a metric fuckshitload of Spider-Man would be the most offensive way I could put it without getting into racial territory.And when you've read a lot, Loeb kind of rehashes a lot of stuff. Like he's boiling down Spider-Man's encounters with the Green Goblin into about two pages, but it doesn't offer a whole [...]

    13. Spider-Man Blue is not a typical superhero graphic novel; it is something much more human. This is not that typical collection of action sequences and shallow story arcs that you can find in a lot of comic books. In Spider-Man Blue, we see a much more vulnerable side of our titular crime-fighter, a side that nearly all of us can relate to. In a rare moment of reflection, we delve deep into the pain and loss that Spider-Man carries with him day-in and day-out, and we get an intimate look at how t [...]

    14. Este cómic me ha sorprendido gratamente, con la forma de unas grabaciones de voz que realiza Peter Parker hablándole a una fallecida Gwen Stacy años después de su muerte (spoiler!!), presenciamos una reimaginación del comienzo de la historia de amor entre Peter y Gwen no es un cómic de romance, no os equivoquéis, aquí tenemos un cómic de superhéroes de los de toda la vida en el que spiderman se enfrenta a algunos de los villanos más icónicos de su historia: el duende verde, rhino, el [...]

    15. 3.5 stars that I rounded up to 4 because Tim Sale's art is great and because Peter had a milk mustache for two pages.

    16. My Brief Bookshelf Overview: mature, mellow, odd-or-unconventional, steady-storytelling-style, story-not-intriguing-enoughAdditional Notes: This collection contains Spider-Man: Blue issues #1-4.ABSOLUTE RATING: 2.5/5 stars (Rounded Down)STANDARDIZED RATING: <2/5 stars>Compared to Hulk: Gray, Spider-Man: Blue feels less like forced pathos, but more pedestrian, boring, and repetitive. And the adolescent romance comes off as capricious and uninteresting. Even Loeb's art seems to be noticeab [...]

    17. I hadn't read a Spiderman book before this and will likely not read another one in the future because I am one of those comic readers who admittedly avoids superhero books in attempt to justify my comic reading hobby. That said, I really enjoyed this book. The 6-issue pacing was perfect, the mystery of who is hunting Spiderman in the shadows worked to drive the combative element in the story, and the resolution of the book nearly moved me to tears. I am slightly embarrassed to admit that but, st [...]

    18. In this book, Peter Parker is making a recording for the dead Gwen Stacy for Valentine's Day in which he recounts how he fell in love with Gwen and the difficulties that he had in choosing between Gwen and MJ. The recording is very sad and you can feel how much Peter regrets not spending more time with Gwen. It's a very introspective take on Spider-man and the conclusion is very heart-warming. I also really liked the art. Tim Sales use of solid colors and silhouettes is really stylish and dramat [...]

    19. I loved this.I'm a big fan of Tim Sale and Jeph Loeb, they've done some amazing stuff together. This was great, I thoroughly enjoyed this. I'm not a big Spider-Man fan, but this is the way to tell a spidey story. Beautiful crisp artwork. Heartfelt story telling. If You're interested in reading a Spider-Man Graphic novel, Read this one.

    20. Not perfect at all. Some dialogue between peter and aunt may was just stupid and unrealistic IN MY opinion :S But overall was enjoyable. Just giving 4 stars because of the conclusion the last chapter was amazing!

    21. Tu negde u sobi mi čuči "Noć kad je umrla Gven Stejsi" u izdanju Čarobne Knjige, unutar njihove edicije "Best of Marvel", o čijim (ne)kvalitetima bih imao mnogo toga da kažem. Nikako da je pročitam. Uglavnom zbog toga što, pretpostavljam, da je potrebno poznavati malo bolje lik popularnog Spajdija, pre nego što se uskoči u tu, za njega, bitnu priču. Naravno, drugari iz ČK nisu tako razmišljali, već nam samo nabacali izdanja kao da su AI štampariju uključili na random generisanje [...]

    22. "i feel blue. not just like i've been dipped in with the tidy bowl man, but like in music, in jazz feeling blue. and i long for a time when a girl i knew with an incredible smile and so much good in her heart made me thinkfe can be great"this is just amazing everything about it is perfect and i dare anyone who thinks graphic novels aren't "real books" to read this and ignore the adult themes of loss, growing pains, and love. they can also fight me personally i will defend this piece of art until [...]

    23. Title - Spider-Man: BlueAuthor - Tim Sale & Jeph LoebSummary - You are Peter Parker, Spider-Man, and as you make you're regular patrols of the city you find yourself on top on a bridge. Its a bridge you visit once a year on Valentine's Day. A building that holds special meaning. You place a rose on it and swing away. The rose is blown off the bridge and falls all the way until it lands in the water. A bridge. A fall. One night. Everything changed.You begin talking to yourself, Peter Parker, [...]

    24. Before I start, a disclaimer of sorts This is not a Spider-Man story. Not really. It's something much better than that. This story is about Peter Parker and the love of his life, Gwen Stacy AND the other love of his life, Mary Jane Watson. It's complicated. Love is that way sometimes I love the idea here that Peter still thinks of Gwen Stacy, years after her death and he's "speaking" to her as someone might while visiting a grave site something that would be private, but we, the readers are able [...]

    25. Any book that moves me in the end pretty much deserves 4 stars, although readers looking for more standard superhero fare may want to take a pass. This is unusual in its approach to an "origin story" for its sentimentality (it can sometimes be a bit much, at least for me) and focus on not just the past but how it shapes each hero emotionally. Not that this doesn't contain its share of action scenes, but it also addresses the emotional cost of battle, which may not necessarily appeal to every rea [...]

    26. Jeph Loeb's nostalgic, rose-tinted look back books work well with the big guys, like Superman and here, Spidey. This is a very enjoyable run through Peter's run up to becoming involved with Gwen Stacy, told in the form of a flashback, while Peter records a taped message to the long-dead Gwen on Valentine's Day. To see her so vibrant and full of life (and MJ, Pete, Harry, even Flash) is bittersweet, because they all had the world in front of them, and yet, we know what life throws in front of the [...]

    27. Wow, this was shockingly good!When I was a kid, I used to have a huge black and white volume of what must have been around 50 old Spider-Man stories. I used to read it all the time, and even when I wasn't reading I would constantly flip through the pages and stare at the art. My absolute favorite time period for Spider-Man was around the time that Gwen Stacy died, and after she was gone, it was hard for me to move on to the next stories because I liked her relationship with Peter too much to car [...]

    28. I've read quite a few Spider Man story lines lately and "Blue" by Loeb and Sale is one of the best ones out there. I don't think what they've done is extraordinarily out of the blue, pun somewhat intended, but "Blue" stands as a very well written, excellently illustrated, stand alone Spider Man piece. I found the writing fresh and detailed, while paying a clear homage to the original creators, Stan Lee and Steve Ditko. The only negative I could convey about this graphic novel is that it just lef [...]
