    I hope that Marvel have already committed to a collected edition of this book, and aren't basing that decision on sales of these single issues; it'll die an ignoble death in the stunted and incestuous Direct Market, but I think it has all the elements it needs to succeed in the bookshops. Theres absolutely no reason why this cant be the manga crossover success Marvel so desperately want it to be, if only they have confidence in it. Read Full Review

    The Weekly Crisis - Kirk Warren Aug 6, 2008

    Not the best issue of SpiderMan Loves Mary Jane, but a very promising start under the new writer and artist team. It'll be interesting to see what Moore does with the follow up issue next month and I'll save further judgement until then. Read Full Review

Maybe something to do with those MTV video games you love so much. Craig Rousseau's art is very nicely done, though his Spidey is a bit more cartoony than I'd like, I think I can forgive it in a title aimed at (what I presume to be) tween readers. It's not Watchmen, but judged on it's own merits, I enjoyed this issue a lot, though the Moore cover art makes Mary Jane much cuter than the interiors. Of course, since she's all of sixteen here, and I'm old enough to be the creepy stalker who lives down on the corner, I s'pose we should cut that line of thinking short. Bottom line? Spider-Man Loves Mary Jane Season Two #1 rates a strong 3 out of 5 stars, giving us the kind of comic we could safely recommend to a theoretical niece or nephew who enjoyed the Spi Read Full Review
