The 9th volume of Essential Spider-Man is not up to par in storytelling. Most of the villains are newbies. Of the veteran foes, we see Mysterio, Electro, Kingpin, Kraven the Hunter and Chameleon.
The stories are really bad. You can tell they are in desperate need of some new ideas for Spidey. Parker is out of school and has become a teacher at the university.
He also gets fired from The Daily Bugle and decides to work for The Daily Globe.
