HOBGOBLIN PART 4 Harry Osborn has come to believe that Peter Parker killed his father as Spider-Man. Now, Harry plans a misguided vengeance that could end Peter's life. Prepare for the battle of Spider-Man and the Hobgoblin!
Mark Bagley is given a "talking heads" issue, and while this doesn't really play to his strengths, he is able to deliver some pretty solid work on this issue, as there's a lovely little back and forth exchange where Peter and Mary Jane discuss the sorry state of their relationship, and the moment where Peter figures out what she's asking him was extremely well handled, and it makes the scene where his emotions finally get the better of him far easier to buy into. The art also nicely opens the readers' eyes to the truth about Harry's mystery friend during the final scene, and Spider-Man's confusion as Harry goes completely off the rails does sell Harry's madness. The issue also offers up some pretty cute little details, as there's a number of fun background elements to discover on the opening double-page spread that opens the issue. The cover image is also a lovely shot of the character, and it manages to pull off a pretty impressive three-dimensional appearance. Read Full Review
