Simply a typical day for your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man as he has to contend with a deadly opponent named Tracer, self-defense lessons with Captain America, and some disturbing news that will change his life in a distinctly negative manner.

    In The End: I may be sticking around after this storyline. I haven't completely decided yet (mostly due to financial considerations), but I really want to see how Peter deals with Spider-Man after this crossover ends. This issue had some great writing and art and served as a nice break from the insanity I have immersed myself in with all of the DC books I read. Read Full Review

    This is an interesting beginning to "The Other," and one which suggests a lot of promise for the crossover as a whole even if we dont really have any idea of where this is all going yet. Peter David seems to be a competent pair of hands to craft the initial chapters of the larger story, and even if his Spidey plays a little young for me, Ill be interested to see how the next two issues of his story (in upcoming issues of MK Spider-Man and Amazing Spider-Man) pan out. I would also give one final piece of praise to this issues cover, as what looked like a garish and over-simplified piece of art on internet previews actually proves to be a real attention grabbing and kinetic piece of artwork on the finished page, especially with that arresting red colour wash. I also like the Rian Hughes-designed The Other strap which runs down the left-hand side of the cover, as it will at least give some coherent look to a story which is spread over three different Spider-Man titles per month.
