What makes this particular battle so great is that Electro doesn't even want to fight. He's naked. Not surprisingly, this allows for some classic Spidey banter. It helps that Stuart Immonen is illustrating every punch, dodge, and quip. His style suits this book better than I could have hoped for. I don't know what will come out of this arc other than a dead Goblin, but I hardly even care at this point. I'm having more fun than I've had in years with USM, and I don't want it to stop.

Art is amazing to put it lightly. Immonen is proving time and time again that he more than capable of taking over for long time penciller Mark Bagley. His action sequences are filled with dramatic fighting. Panelling is dynamic and still very flowing. Action, speech bubbles and sound effects are all well integrated with one never interfering with the other, but rather enhancing the whole experience. The shift in how the characters look is handled well, with all characters more recognizable now. Bendis writing served to establish relationships characters have to each other before introducing the character in every instance. This made guessing who each character is nonexistent. For example, Mary-Jane getting picked up by her mother is discussed beforehand and therefore she isnt getting picked up by a character who may or may not be her mother. Immonens art is awesome. He can stay as long as he wants, its fine by me. Read Full Review
