When a former classmate of Peter Parker's is caught in a horrific experiment, he blames Peter for the resulting transformation...but is Peter to blame? And how will Peter react when someone targets his personal life instead of Spider-Man's life, for a change?

    I'm delighted that Bruce Campbell has been pulled into the comic book medium, as the Evil Dead films should be embraced by the comic book community. Of course, Sam Raimi's involvement with the Spider-Man films has served to introduce a new legion of fans to the slapstick abilities of Mr. Campbell. So why am I going on about Bruce Campbell in this section of the review? It's because this issue features the first appearance of the snooty usher into the Marvel Universe, and I have to say Mike Deodato Jr. does a pretty nice job of capturing Bruce Campbell's likeness. The art also nicely captures the sense of danger that Charlie poses during the scene where he kills his childhood tormentor, though the art could've done a better job later in the issue showing readers the blood that Spider-Man notices. The art also delivers a cute little visual gag as the van door scene made me smile. Read Full Review
