Throw together a crew of five sad-sack C-List Spidey Villains to star in their own series and what do you get?

Hilarity!

Seriously, folks, this is without a doubt the funniest Marvel comic I think I've read...ever? Even Fraction's excellent Hawkeye books get weighed down by character-building moments where you feel bad for Clint, Kate, etc., but no such worries here, all five of the Sinister Six (yes, I'm aware of what I just wrote) are such conniving cretins that the reader feels no remorse in laughing at them throughout their many, many set-backs.

Worst of a bad lot is Fred "Boomerang" Myers, the self-proclaimed leader of the Six, whose trials and tribulations include ducking his parole officer/ex-partner in crime, dating a Philly girl on the cheap, lying to his team-mates and his backers, and generally watching every single one of his outlandish schemes come back to get him in the end just like a...well, you get the picture!

Instances of the book's wacky humour, which incorporates tons of visual cues from artist Steve Lieber, are too many to list here. But you will laugh. Quite possibly out loud.

Go, read this title and tell me I'm wrong!

An exceptional new series by Nick Spencer and Steve Lieber. This band of misfit villains who are just as likely to stab each other in the back as anything else are the protagonists of this book, particularly from the point of view of Boomerang. Spencer and Lieber inject a healthy dose of humour into the proceedings, and really convey the personalities of the players well.
