Still mourning the comatose state of Flash Thompson, Spidey also has to face a strange woman, and old crimes committed by a corporation.

    An issue that's a little too off the beaten path for my tastes, as the villain of this issue feels a bit like Typeface, another Paul Jenkins creation where the character was decidedly odd, but also decidedly uninteresting. Now I'll concede it's a little early in the game to be writing off the villain of this arc, as at the moment it's not even all that clear if her intentions are even hostile, as we do get a hint that the company that she stole the gem from engaged in some rather questionable activities. Still, the issue didn't really grab my interest when it was focused on the plot, as except for the amusing one way exchange that Spider-Man has with this mystery woman, this issue plot is rather vague in what it's trying to show us. Still the scenes dealing with Flash Thompson's situation are very interesting, and it's nice to see the odd ball elements return to the book, such as the neighbor's dog (I'm guessing it's an undercover Skrull agent).
