    Hallum and company deliver an astonishingly good book. Full of seriousness, action, and heavy drama. Somehow the creative team manages to keep things on the light side. Read Full Review

    This issue is solid thanks to a perfectly written MJ/Peter scene. It also has some good action and anyone who loved the game will simply love exploring the characters further in the comic book format. Read Full Review
