    Overall, this two-issue effort by Waid continues his trend of being one of the more reliable members of the Spidey Brain Trust. While it's still not clear whether or not the new Vulture is a valuable member of the rogue's gallery, Waid continues to tug on the heartstrings of Spider-Man readers through his manipulations of some of the core components of the character's universe.

    Otherwise, however, this is not a particularly interesting story -- and my relative indifference towards it is compounded by the fact that the book's artwork just isn't to my tastes. Let's hope that the book gets back on track soon, because I'm starting to feel that, after a strong start, the overarching "Gauntlet" storyline might be in danger of running out of steam.

    Yet my biggest problem with this issue was the art. I really hate to trash creators but I would be negligent if I didn’t mention that I absolutely abhorred the art in this issue. It felt rushed and uninspired and lacking on all levels. Normally I have nothing but high regard for Paul Azaceta’s work but this was just disastrous. Peter Parker in particular was garish. The colors provided by Andres Mossa were bland and monotonous as well. Read Full Review
