    The book jumps ahead 8 years and Annie is now a sophomore in high school. She clearly becomes the lead character in the book by the end of this. The family dynamic is still there. Peter and MJ still have strong supporting roles but clearly this is about how Annie grows into her own super-hero while going through high school. Nathan Stockman should just take over as the full time artist at this point. His art is solid while Nick Roche's was blocky and chunky and in no ways memorable.

    Sometimes time skips don't help the story... I really loved volume 1-2 of this series but volume 3 just comes across as decent. Not because of the new team, they're both actually pretty talented. I especially enjoy Jody Houser writing usually, but here it comes off a little odd. We have Annie in her high school setting now being her high school girl self. You know what that means. Be distant to parents and worry about image and being your true self. Then have Peter worrying about his daughter and Sometimes time skips don't help the story...

It doesn't have the family bonding I was hoping for but basically this story covers a lizard story and then new super powered teenagers. Good: I enjoyed some moments a lot. I thought Peter teaching her that it's not always villains are just pure evil. It was a good teaching moment for annie. I also still think the monologue for all the characters is solid and pretty funny at times. Peter and Annie relationship is still solid. Bad: MJ doesn't feel like a main character anymore which makes me sad. I also thought the storylines were okayish. I didn't really feel any big emotions on this volume or family moments like volume 1-2. Overall this was decent but not great. It feels a step back sadly from the previous titles and I kind of blame the time jump. I feel like we could have had a lot more storylines from Annie as a kid. A 2.5 out of 5.

Eight years might be a long time for a kid, but for an adult it's not comparable, so Peter and MJ are kind of back-seat characters here which is fair to be honest - Annie is the draw, as is the family dynamic which we get quite a bit of, but it's very clearly Annie's book now. First up, our heroes head to Coney Island and run afoul of the Lizard in a story that continues a plot thread from the earlier Conway/Stegman run, before Annie joins a high school club only to find that her classmates have turned themselves into superheroes with a mad-on for killing Normie Osborn. Both stories are solid, though the second feels more natural. I like how, even now, Peter and MJ are learning things about each other as well as their daughter; these characters have been through a lot together, and even if we haven't seen all eight years of it, the development is obvious. Nick Roche takes the first three issues which Nathan Stockman returns for the second three; they may as well make Stockman the ongoing artist here, since his style really fits these characters and he manages to make Annie look her age. Roche's pencils didn't make a huge impact on me since I barely remember much about them at this point, but that probably means they're...fine. New creative teams aren't always a home run to start off with, but I'd call this a solid hit for now. Houser and friends find their feet early, and this title is in safe hands.

    Jody Houser isn't Dan Slott, which is okay, but...and Koblis definitely isn't Andy Kubert, which is less okay. Still, the characterization is on, and I feel like Houser functioned adequately within the head-space of each narrator (Peter, MJ and Annie). She is best with Annie, which is good, because the best part of this volume is primarily an Annie/Spiderling story with guest appearances by the worried parents, who alternately spend their time worrying about their daughter or congratulating them Jody Houser isn't Dan Slott, which is okay, but...and Koblis definitely isn't Andy Kubert, which is less okay.

She is best with Annie, which is good, because the best part of this volume is primarily an Annie/Spiderling story with guest appearances by the worried parents, who alternately spend their time worrying about their daughter or congratulating themselves for how great she is. As a parent I get the reality of both responses...it felt belabored here though. You're writing Peter and MJ Parker, either give them more to do or cut them out of the book even further. The first arc is a whole family deal, three issues, each narrated by a different Parker. Family Fun Day is broken up by the Lizard, heroic hijinks ensue. The story is a bit weak, as it seems the whole point was to establish the big reveal on the final panel, which doesn't come with enough coherence, or sense of eminent danger to get more than a huh, at least from this reader. This was definitely the weaker arc. The characterization arc (as opposed to/within the narrative arc) shows Peter and MJ, whether conscious of it or not, beginning to acknowledge the fact that it's been eight years and Annie/Spiderling isn't just a little kid anymore. She's getting close to the point Peter started out on his own, only she's eight years into the gig. The second arc, the one focused primarily on Spiderling/Annie deals mostly with her adjusting to high school--I don't fit in, I want to, I want friends, I made friends, crap they might be bad friends, oh--phew--they're not, I made friends! The specifics of this tiny slice of coming-of-teen-age writing vary enough from the pattern above--or, really, tweak the steps--enough to be entertaining, but Houser still seems to be somewhat in search of what she wants to do with this book and these characters.

    As much as I had already enjoyed the first two volumes of this series, the decision to jump things 8 years forward to when Annie May is already a brooding teenage was a brilliant one. It allows us to enjoy the evolving family dynamic that comes with your kids actually growing up. And having her trying to find a space for herself that isn't overly dominated by the legacy her parents have passed on to her was a great move.

    It's okay, but not really a tale that held my interest at times. I like the family feel and this take on Peter...but it just didn't hit for me this time.

    Renew Your Vows continues to be an excellent Spidey title as we jump forward 8 years to when May is a teenager in high school. This Volume is divided into two storylines... 1) "Eight Years Later" establishes the setting: The Spider-Family is still saving the day, but Mary desires a new code name, thinking Spiderling sounds too childish. Being a sophomore in high school has its own challenges, one of them being less time together as a family. To combat that, they decide to have a family fun day at Renew Your Vows continues to be an excellent Spidey title as we jump forward 8 years to when May is a teenager in high school. This Volume is divided into two storylines... 1) "Eight Years Later" establishes the setting: The Spider-Family is still saving the day, but Mary desires a new code name, thinking Spiderling sounds too childish. Being a sophomore in high school has its own challenges, one of them being less time together as a family. To combat that, they decide to have a family fun day at the amusement park. In true comic book fashion, of course their day is interrupted by an attack from Lizard. When subdued though, Dr. Conners claims he needs help and that he is actually running from the real villain. Into the underground they go, coming across Dr. Krikos, a sort of steampunk, rare species collector. Krikos gets away and reveals himself to the reader as Mr. Sinister. 2) "Fast Times at Midtown High" allows May to come into her own as a responsible superhero. Two classmates have done an old experiment and gotten powers because of it. Accidentally lashing out at May, she jumps far backwards, afterwards convincing them she got powers from it too. Testing their powers and getting costumes, May is able to lead them on a heroic mission. One of the classmates though was using that as a test of her powers. She swears vengeance on Norman Osborne Jr., seeing him as the focal point for her anger at losing her father who worked for Oscorp. May (under the far watching eyes of Peter and MJ) is able to help talk her down and realize vengeance is never the answer. Normie, recovering from the mild attack in his office, signs off on an experiment that could lead to the cure for cancer, but the employee walks away showing Sinister's eyes... who knows what this will lead to... hopefully a battle against Mr. Sinister in this title! Still loving this alternate version of Spider-Man. Hope it continues for a long time. High recommend.

    On May 18, 2008 DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES ended its fourth season by jumping the storylines ahead by 5 years. It was quite the notable twist. I never watched the show myself and I remember hearing about this. And it was DH's season finale twist that was very much on my mind when I saw the subtitle for this latest volume of RENEW YOUR VOWS.

And it was DH's season finale twist that was very much on my mind when I saw the subtitle for this latest volume of RENEW YOUR VOWS. If anyone has read my previous reviews on this title than you will know (or you will learn for the first time) that I feel the Parker family stories come up a bit short compared to those of Superman, Lois and Jonathan over at DC. It's not that I don't like the Parker family, but it feels like the writers try too hard to capture the warm fuzzies that seems to come so easily for the Kents. When we first meet Annie-May (Peter and MJ's daughter) she is elementary school age. I wasn't sure if it was the best idea to skip 8 years of Annie-May's life and pick up with her now starting her sophomore year of high school. And yet, I found myself feeling the warm fuzzies at the Parker family dynamic that I hadn't before. For whatever reason, skipping ahead 8 years was the right thing to do creatively and gave this series the shot in the arm it very much needed. Vol. 3 is clearly my favorite of this particular title and I look forward to more.

    After a great introduction to the world with a one-shot, Renew Your Vows became a regular series. The first 2 volumes were "Amazing." Lots of fun, nostalgic, a return to form with a married Peter Parker (to Mary Jane, of course) and just plain novel. Well, I'm sad to report that the novelty has worn thin with volume 3.

The powers that be decided to flash forward 8 years after volume 2, and I'm not sure if this was even the problem. The first half of volume 3 involves a messy story that includes the Lizard, but devolves into something with a forgettable villain and no real conclusion. The second half is more of a coming-of-age story for Annie that brings back young Normie who is no longer young. The humor seems to have been sidelined, replaced by cheesy dialogue. The 8-year gap may have caused an unintentional side effect of poor character development, which makes it hard for readers to reinvest. After slugging through this volume, I did find the cliffhanger to be satisfying, with the promise of a return to form. Maybe volume 4 can get back on track. I've written that this is the best Spidey book on the market, but can't support that claim with this volume. Here's hoping for better things to come.

    Renew Your Vows is a fun series that gives me an aspect I want out of Peter Parker after so many years. He’s got his own family and troubles to worry about. In this title you won’t get super grand villain plots or giant plot twists. You get something more solid which is the character dynamics between Spider-Man, Spider-Woman, and Spiderling.

But she also has to balance her superhero antics and Peter and MJ have to let her become her own person. There’s a Lizard story and a semi Osborn story. Both work to help with the growing of the characters. The art changes after three issues but both styles are good just different. Solid read even if not much goes on plot wise. 3 stars.

    I was skeptical when I first heard about the coming time-skip to Annie's high school years, but it was accompanied by a shift in storytelling that made her the main character, as opposed to all three Parkers, so I can see why it was done. And it worked for me. The main story was okay, as was the art, but the main draw for this book, for me, is the family dynamic. I continue to love it, and so I will continue to read it.

    Love this. Peter Parker has gone from dealing with his own high school problems to dealing with adult problems, including having a super-powered teenage daughter. For me, the entire thing is summed up with the panel of Peter and Mary Jane (in their costumes) watching their daughter fly away after severely chastising her for breaking the rules. The two parents look at each other and realize they’ve done a good job. But also that what they do as parents isn’t any easier than taking down bad guys. Love this.

    Leí los números por separado. No me gustó tanto como los anteriores. Ahora que Annie es adolescente podemos verla con más libertad e independencia y eso es bueno. La primera historia no estuvo mal, pero la segunda, sobre los amigos que adquieren poderes, aunque tuvo una buena moraleja no me gustó mucho. Pero sobre todo, mi principal problema con la serie, fue el cambio de dibujante. Odié el estilo de Nathan Stockman. Espero que mejore pronto o abandonaré el comic.

    Pretty good continuation of the story. (view spoiler)[I like that it kept the trend of offering each of the characters' perspectives (One of the issues is narrated by Peter, then MJ, and then Annie). The second storyline about Annie making friends with other powered-people at her school was fun. (hide spoiler)] Pretty good continuation of the story.

    Really digging the choice to skip from Kid Spiderling to Teen Spiderling with this volume, although I agree with the kid that she needs a new codename to match her age. Looking forward to many more adventures with this family, and I hope the impending Spider-Pocalypse doesn’t mess with it too badly.

    Jody Houser takes over Renew Your Vows, and at first, it's a shaky transition. Nick Roche's art is fine, though a bit of a downgrade from Ryan Stegman. Peter and MJ take a backseat to Teen Annie, which is a big bummer, since I was reading this story for Peter and MJ. But it's not all bad.

    Huh! I thought it was pretty clear from the previous book that Marvel had given up on the title. But now it's just a worse version of DeFalco's Spider-Girl. It's not bad. But I'm not really sure what we're getting here. Huh! I thought it was pretty clear from the previous book that Marvel had given up on the title.

    This book fast forwards eight years to Annie as a teenager. It collects Issues 13-18, with two three issue stories. The Eight Years Later story is okay, but not great.

Fast Times at Midtown High finds Annie in high school and mortified by Peter taking a teaching job When two kids develop superpowers, she lies to her parents, designs her own costume, and takes them under her wing. It's an interesting story that shows the potential of what a teenage Annie can bring to the series as we can explore her character as she tries to find her own way in life and establish her own identity. Overall, a good story. Despite, some bumps, this was a fun collection. Looking forward to Volume 4.
