    I really can't say enough about Dan Slott's writing. It seems like every supporting cast member displayed here is utilized to some degree. Slott also goes a long way in solidifying Bobby Carr's persona while also exposing Dexter Bennet as the scumbag he is. Marcos Martin's art, once again, is lively and kinetic. The action, mannerisms, and expressions portrayed throughout the book (once again) prove why he's the perfect Spider-Man artist. He's got the technical skills of a veteran, a classical style that's universally loved, and storytelling that's almost unmatched. If you haven't done so yet, pick up this issue along with the past two. This is a classic Spidey story at its finest. Read Full Review

    Those pluses aside, this issue would have fared a whole lot worse if it wasn't for Marcos Martin. Martin is, put simply, one of the best artists to handle Spidey in many years. His art is fluid, dynamic, ad everything you could hope for in a Spidey comic. It manages to hearken back to the classic days while still retaining modern storytelling sensibilities. If only I could say the same for the writing. Read Full Review

    . I did enjoy the issue, but I just can't find it in me to love it or even gush over the little extra touches Slott has put in this issue, like a moving box with old copies of Webs in it or the light hearted chat between MJ and Spidey. Considering this comes out three times a month, I find it odd how fast they ditched this paparazzi angle and I think they wasted a lot of potential on it. Read Full Review
