A special fully painted stand-alone story! On a rooftop in the Bronx sits a sad handicapped man. A prisoner of his own crippled body, how will a battle between the wall-crawler and Morbius, the Living Vampire, change his life?

    There's also a nice quiet realization in the final moments of this issue as Joey gets a look at the unmasked Spider-Man and he doesn't see the happy-go-lucky hero he envisioned, but rather a tragic figure who is buried under a crushing sense of responsibility. As for the art, all I can say is I was very impressed, as while Paolo River's work is a bit dark and some of it looks a bit washed out, but for the most part it's very powerful imagery, with his take on this issue's villain being the creepiest rendition of that character that I've ever come across.
