• Patient Zero and Itsy Bitsy have been killing in Spider-Man and Deadpool's names.
•  This has sent Spider-Man into a tailspin.
•  Deadpool's only hope is to get to Spidey before the Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man does something very un-friendly.

    The penultimate issue to Joe Kelly and Ed McGuinness's long-running story delivers some great twists and turns. Any problems you've had with the title since the start of its current arc won't be addressed by this issue, but if you're in for one of the better crafted Spider-Man stories in recent years if you're able to over look a few problems.

    Spider-man/Deadpool remains a sweet if intermittent treat. Kelly continues to show a firm grasp on Deadpool and Peter's voice. The occasional shout outs to Marvel's terrible status quo in the Spidey books can't drag this series down. Its Bitsy is a truly original villain that pushes both characters to their limits. McGuiness shows that he is one of the top pencillers at Marvel, with strong artwork and creative panels.

    Itsy-Bitsy is one hell of a villain and I really do hope we get to see more of her in the regular series because let's face it she's evil, melodramatic and just an over all badass. The art of Mcguinness, Morales and Keith shines bright in this issue and Kelly knows what he is doing.

    Great story pushing Spider-man to the brink of a meltdown where Deadpool is the voice of reason. Great art is a big plus. The problem is the 2-3 month delays that take away from following the story.

    Spider-Man and Itsy Bitsy go into showdown mode, with Deadpool desperately playing Jiminy Cricket in the background. It's a wonderfully entertaining presentation, with great pacing, strong dialogue, and beautiful art. But by this point, the premise of the arc - put Spidey through a "Killing Joke" challenge with meta commentary on his recent history - is getting pretty threadbare. So too is Itsy Bitsy, less a character than an animated plot point. The fact that this struggle is playing out in a comedy-focused team-up book guarantees that it's going to resolve with a hard drive back to the status quo, robbing this story of the impact that actual consequences might have given it.
