    Comic Watch - Jimmy Hayes Mar 23, 2022

    This issue measures up to the impossibly high standards that DeMatteis, Baldeon, Silva, and Caramagna have set since issue one hit the stands. Chock-full of great story, great art, great colors, and great letters! Read Full Review

    You can really feel the energy permeating from each page, as Ben tries to narrow down who could be attacking him. Another delight is reading to find out which villain from Spider-Man's rogues gallery will step up next. Read Full Review

    Intro: I'm late to the party on this one, but this was the first book to read on my pickups. Let's begin!

    Plot/Setting: Again, no clickbait cover! It's Ben Reilly versus Carloyn Trainer! But as last issue shows, it's not as it seems. Ben gets confronted by another face from the past moments after fighitng Trainer that's got horror blended in. After all the fights, we get to see Ben investigate potential puppet-masters of the attacks, only to find nothing. As Ben continues to make friendships, a forgotten member of his family returns and spells trouble for the webslinger!

    Writing: What haven't I already said about DeMatteis' writing? He's one of the best Spider-Man writers of all time. This issue, as well as this series more

    The one guy who I never thought would be back is back.

    And I'm so thankful for that.

    Really enjoyable issue. I will say that it's probably the weakest in terms of progression and content. Not a ton happens outside of the reveal, which is actually great because that character is so ridiculous and I'm glad they're back.

    Nothing special, but I will say J. M. DeMatteis has done a great job at making me care for a character who's been badly written since his debut

    Nice fun stuff
