"Spider-Man: Reign" proves a hit

Marvel reports that the first issue of the “Spider-Man: Reign” miniseries by Kaare Andrews has sold out at Diamond Distributors and that there’ll be a second printing.

I didn’t pick up the first issue. Should I? Any recommendations out there? Some fans on the message boards have derided it as a Spider-Man imitation of “The Dark Knight Returns,” which saw an aged Batman return to the streets of Gotham. Here’s what Marvel says:

“A searing vision of Spider-Man’s future, ‘Spider-Man: Reign’ cuts to the core of what makes Peter Parker a hero. In a future New York City where super heroes are banished and those closest to him are gone, will Peter Parker find the inner strength to be a hero once again or will he succumb to the despair that has ravaged the Big Apple?”
