Aunt May becomes aware that Peter and Mary Jane are hiding something extremely bad from her. But between dealing with Tracer's endgame and the unexpected return of a foe that Spider-Man has never defeated, Peter has more than enough to worry about.

    Personally, Im optimistic about the kind of story we could see once Morlun returns in full force, when the significance of The Other becomes clear, and when JMS gets to pen his three issues of the crossover in December. But before then weve got the turn of Reginald Hudlin, who is a relatively unknown quantity to me. Still, Im hoping he can build on the basic foundations provided by David to move the story on significantly and actually clue us in as to what The Other is all about, because at this stage, the reader really should have some idea. Sadly, past experience would lead me to believe that Marvel will string this crossover out as long as possible, and it may not get much better any time soon. Im hoping to be proved wrong but I wouldnt bet on it. Read Full Review

    So, the first act of The Other is done with, and beyond a rather vaguely defined theme of death, the point of all of this is really rather unclear. Peter David is a great writer, and yet he's been unable to make this work; next up is Reginald Hudlin, and given how his Spider-Man issues have been received thus far, I don't anticipate an upswing in quality. House of M turned out to be an utter waste of time and effort, and at this point, I don't see The Other being any different. Read Full Review

    Priestly (Deodatos model for Peter) involved in an terminal illness; Im not involved enough to keep reading all the other crossover parts to see how Peter evolves. Deodatos storytelling continues to give this Spider-title, at least, a distinctive look, and I may check in again when JMS is back. Read Full Review
