    Ive never read anything by Van Lente before, although he seems to have been working in the comic book industry for some time. I really liked what I read this issue. The story was simple, yet complex. There was strong motivations and characterization. There was also some humour which is always good with Spider-man. I hope he returns for more stories.

    A good done-in-one issue that makes an old Spider-Man foe relevant again, but also manages to squeeze a ton more in. Whats there not to be happy about? Read Full Review

    Van Lente could really bring something to this series, but he needs more to work with than one D-List villain and a band of generic thugs. Though this issue leaves the doors open for further developments, I can't say I have a huge interest in a sequel. Let's keep the biting humor and move onto something more interesting.
