An entertaining enough two-issue story, that isn't so much a Spider-Man adventure as it is a look at a pair of second-tier villains who attempt to come up with a plan that would prove a success against Spider-Man. Now, given Manhattan is home to almost every single super-hero in the Marvel Universe, I always find it a bit strange that the villains always seem to draw out the super-hero they want to encounter, but then again since this book is called Peter Parker: Spider-Man, I guess it shouldn't be all that surprising Spider-Man is the hero of this adventure. The issue does a solid job of making the struggles of these two villains interesting, and while the action is a bit hard to follow thanks to the rather unfocused art, the general idea of the issue is well presented. I also hope that future stories starring the Shocker keep this recent arc in mind, as the character does undergo a fairly important change in his status quo. Read Full Review
