    I was thinking of giving up this series, but this new creative team has instilled new hope for the one shot genre. Take note of the writer and artist, Daniel Way and Leandro Fernandez. Tangled Web gives new creative teams the chance to show off their talents using characters from the Marvel Universe.

It also does a pretty nice job playing up the idea that Tombstone isn't afraid to play dirty. In fact this issue shows us that this is his preferred method of doing things.
