    As always, the explosive combination of Straczynski and Romita Jr are stunning and well worth the read. At $2.25, its a steal for both the artistic merits AND the reading pleasure. Read Full Review

I also have to say I'm not all that fond of the idea that there have been multiple versions of Spider-Man running around throughout history. Still, I can draw some comfort in the idea that J. Michael Starczynski hasn't fully committed to this idea, and he almost seems hesitant to draw any concrete connections that can't be dismissed by another writer as the fanciful imaginings of a mysterious character who has been presented as being rather Read Full Review
