So im new to comic books and I was wanting some info from this friendly neighborhood message board. I saw a comic series at the comic shop titled Peter Parker. Couple questions- 1- what is the general plot 2- is the series still going 3- is it worth reading? 4- Does Parker have powers?
It's just a paper copy of the Amazing Spider-Man digital miniseries, so no, it's not still ongoing. Peter does have powers in it, so it's not a pre-Spider-Man story; it takes place somewhere around #600 of the main Amazing series.
The plot is that Jonah starts a squad unit specifically to take down Spider-Man and improve his public image, while a group of high school girls start doing volunteer charity work in Spider-Man's name. When they become popular, some celebutante tries to steal their thunder and profit off of it, and Jonah tries to shut them down too.
