    A pretty enjoyable, if somewhat offbeat Spider-Man adventure, that has everyone's favorite friendly neighborhood webslinger have another run-in with the increasing bizarre Sandman, whose scattered consciousness has taken to creating multiple version of himself. What more these version have all been inspired by the ramblings of a self help guru, who is dishing up all the standard clichs of his racket, so we encounter Sandman's inner child, and more disturbingly his feminine side. Now, the plot isn't all that deep, and it's more an excuse for Zeb Wells to deliver a series of amusing encounters, but the issue does manage to convey a nice sense of danger as a decidedly hostile version of the Sandman emerges from the sand, and this problem is far enough off the beaten track that I'm quite curious as to how it'll all be resolved. It also doesn't hurt that the art for this two-parter is being provided by Sam Kieth, one of the truly unique artistic talents in the industry. Read Full Review
