Spider-Man : Revenge of the Sinister Six
One of my favorite childhood occupations was to curl up with a big fat volume of comic books. Alas, these came rarely enough, because comic books were somewhat frowned upon. The addiction continues into adulthood. This, however is a novel, not a comicbook. It is still just as engaging. In this novel we learn about Peter Parker's parents, why he was an orphan, and a mysteriously missing sister of his.
