Honestly, it's pretty surprising Superior Foes of Spider-Man made it as far as 17 issues.
The title lacked star power in terms of characters (Spider-Man's name is in the title, but that was very nearly the full extent of the character's participation in the comic) and it fell into a genre that, for whatever reason, doesn't connect with readers all that often: the superhero universe comedy.
Yet, until it ended late last month, it was one of the best comics on the stands. Nick Spencer and Steve Lieber's tale of a group of C-list villains (and that's being generous) grouping together to be the new Sinister Six (despite there only being five of them) had more character, personality, playfulness, inventiveness and wit in its pages than most other comics coming out.
Doctor Octopus might be getting all the attention right now, what with him inhabiting Spider-Man's body and all, but a team of Spidey bad guys is looking to steal some of it away this July, when writerNick Spencer and artist Steve Lieber team up for Superior Foes of Spider-Man, a new ongoing series inspired by 1991's Deadly Foes of Spider-Man series.
