Description
A high-school student named Yu Komori is bitten by a radioactive spider, which gave him spider-like powers. Yu faces Japanese versions of villains such as Electro, the Lizard and the Kangaroo. Yu also has an Aunt May (her name is "Mei"), and the publisher of the Joho newspaper is a counterpart to J. Jonah Jameson.

Only 7 out of the 13 Japanese stories in total were fully translated by Marvel, with heavy edits to remove the violent scenes. After that the title was cancelled, which was a likely decision by Marvel since the stories written by Hirai departed even further from the source material, and included scenes of sexual and gruesome imagery of a kind not seen in the original US Spider-Man comics.

really good , one of the best manga ive ever read , the spider-man is just an excuse to the main character be stronger than the other characters , this manga i s actually a underrated psychological manga! the stories feel like acid trips , the characters are very human , this work remembered me Devilman a lot !

if you dig for mature manga this is definitely a good call .Tho' since it was axed it doesn't have a proper ending

If you liked the US version of Spider Man, you wont like this. If you don't like the US version of Spider Man, you wont like this. Overall crap. It had a rushed ending for a reason, it sucked.

"the stories written by Hirai departed even further from the source material, and included scenes of sexual and gruesome imagery of a kind not seen in the original US Spider-Man comics"
