John Romita Jr. has been letting me down lately with his depiction of Mary Jane as an anorexic, but in this issue, he beefs her up and gives her real emotion expressed with subtle head movements. Spidey he portrays as wiry and given a frame that recalls his namesake. His version of the mystery guest is beefier but also graceful. This character stands out when showing a human side in comprehending Spidey's interaction with Mary Jane. Read Full Review
This book calls upon the reader to go along with its hard to ignore plot contrivances, and to a certain extent it did manage to win me over, as the action sequences are a lot of fun, and J. Michael Straczynski is able to offer up some fairly amusing moments, as Peter tries to mend fences with Mary Jane in the middle of this chaos. However, there's a few too many scenes where the book feels like it's taking the readers acceptance for granted, and there's also a couple groaners such as Dr. Doom's encounter with the metal detector, that left me wondering if J. Michael Straczynski is writing down to his audience. Still this issue does get Peter & Mary Jane back together, and for this alone it earns my utmost thanks. Some topnotch art from John Romita Jr. doesn't hurt matters either. Read Full Review
