The wait is over! Finally! No, really. You demanded it, you got it: The conclusion to the series you though would never be finished. When Felicia wakes up behind bars -- accused of the murder of the mutant menace known as Klum -- there's only one man (well, two actually) who can save her: Peter Parker and Matt Murdock. But to save their friend, they're gonna need a little insight into the powers and psyche of the man who put her in the slammer in the first place, insight that can be provided by someone who really understands what makes him tick. Need a hint? Bamf.

And weve only just got over what JMS did to G Read Full Review

    Spider-Man/Black Cat is like an idiot who believes himself to be an idiot savant. The one hope we have is that crazy Wanda by saying "no more mutants" wiped this miserable excuse for one writer's ego out of Marvel continuity. Imagine the irony. One bad mistake by Bendis canceling out the evil that one man did to the readers of Spider-Man. Read Full Review
