Lapham does play with readers' emotions a bit in that we never quite know when Uncle Ben will kick the bucket. Brian Michael Bendis did the same thing in his early issues of Ultimate Spider-Man, and it worked wonders for his opening arc. Unfortunately, Lapham ends up relying on silly cliffhangers and plot twists too often to pad out this story. Again, I'm ecstatic to see Tony Harris drawing Spider-Man, but I wish Marvel could have found a better vehicle for his talents. As it is, With Great Power... is a slick-looking waste of time.

Tony Harris does more incredible artwork in this issue. It's, by far, the highlight of this series. He had to be happy to finally get out of the wrestling locker room and draw New York, monsters, and just more Spider-Man-esque stuff. The colors continue to be a big part of this book as well – J.D. Mettler and Paul Mounts create a world rich with color and what can I say? It's just a feast to the eyes. Story wise, this book passes… barely. Art wise, it's utterly beautiful. Read Full Review
