Spidey faces off against his newest foe…BOOMERANG!

    Comics Bulletin - Jason Cornwell Mar 8, 2003

    While it's not exactly laugh aloud funny, Zeb Wells does a pretty solid job of keeping the material amusing, and he has displayed a nice sense that he is trying to offer up ideas that haven't been used before, as the last arc he came up with a rather clever plan for the villains to follow, and this arc he has come up with an equally innovative plot, even though it does feel a bit familiar to a rather forgettable plot that ran through the Spider-Man book when Ben Urich had taken Peter's place. Still, the idea of a group of rich business men orchestrating a fight, so they could place bets of the outcome is a fun idea, and it would appear that the story will continue next month, so I'm curious where he plans on going with this idea. The fight between Boomerang & Spider-Man was also fairly entertaining, with Spider-Man being in fine form as he plays around with Boomerang, before defeating him in the most annoying manner possible.
