About this deal

Not everyone who is frozen is playing video games; some, like Miles' uncle, are accidentally exposed. There was just the right amount of choice to suit everyone without being overwhelming and I received comments from parents and staff about the quality of books offered compared to previous sales which have always been based around current crazes and well known celebrity authors. I also found the whole thing very light weight, and he literally punches the bad guy once and it is over. Plus the inclusion of the main villain who is an X-Men and Fantastic Four foe instead of Spider-Man (of any universe) foil!

But nowhere on the cover (front and back), nor inside this book are potential first time readers alerted that this is the second volume in a series until the back of the book!

Representation matters for us and he doesn’t like to read, but he will read these books really quickly!And sure, the events make sense and I can easily get up to speed on some basic premise stuff, but I was also Such a baby about not being expositioned through all the other supporting characters. Yourself and Bob are much cherished in our booky world and I personally really appreciate everything that you do.

Enjoyed this second installment in the series but still confused about how the villain was defeated. Yesterday a parent came over to tell me how impressed she was by the book fair and that you did a fabulous job of selling the books to the children first. It's a good way to make comics accessible to kids who might otherwise be intimated by the sheer volume of Marvel comics there are out there.

It’s a fantastic independent book seller that will actually be responsive and select appropriate books for you. He plays a crucial part in the final battle with the Stranger, which I found really confusing, but I won’t say anything to prevent spoilers. He hangs out in northeast Ohio with his family, and is probably somewhere dancing terribly, or as his sister likes to say "doing the sports". Our favorite Afro-Latino superhero Miles Morales is back and settling a bit uncomfortably into his role as Spider-Man. Miles and Trinity work together to stop a strange occurrence in which people on Earth are “freezing” in place including Miles’ uncle!

Bronnie is so lovely with the boys and we also felt that having a man enthusing about the books set a great example. Working to unmask the Stranger (who freezes humanity because he doesn’t like human behavior) Miles and Trinity get help from Miles’ bestie Ganke and a familiar face from school, Mr. Shock Waves, the predecessor of this book, had a solid plot and I really enjoyed the art and characters.Stranger Tides for the most part was a wholesome read and there are some excellent sections about family and redemption that parents will love. Now, almost instantly, this book introduces the Stranger as one of the most powerful characters Miles could ever face, and even at one point states itself that Miles could never defeat him.
