    This is reminding me of the best of the first run of Ultimate Spider-Man. Getting back to the spirit of Spidey while shedding all the restrictions that have only been kept around out of tradition. This is how Spidey should be - - a well-meaning kid who's frequently put in situations where he's trying to figure out what the responsible thing to do is, even if he obviously doesn't have the experience to properly put things in perspective. I hope the new movie's going to be like this. Read Full Review

    If I was reviewing the entire arc thus far I’d be throwing down an A+, but this single issue , while outstanding, is going to have to settle for an B+ because of a clumsy introduction of the next villian du jour, but don’t let that stop any of you readers from jumping on what might be the best book Marvel is currently producing.

    The change in energy can also be attributed to the books new artist David Lafuente who has been quite a polarizing presence on this book. Some of the customers at my shop complain that his style is too manga for them (which betrays a fundamental lack of knowledge towards the term manga), and have subsequently dropped the book, while others like myself find themselves becoming more and more enamored with the ink hes slinging on the page. His facial expressions, his body language, and his well developed sense of drawing Things and People in motion are pretty much second to none plus, the way he punctuates a joke by changing the panel imagery really makes each chuckle hit a little harder. Its a fantastic book that you should be reading, even if you werent too keen on it right when the first series was winding down all those months ago. Read Full Review

    The Weekly Crisis - Ryan Schrodt Jun 11, 2010

    There are things to like in this issue, but most of them are fleeting as it plods along from one major storyline to another. Transition issues like this are always a hard sell, but there just wasn't enough for me to sink my teeth into to be fully satisfied, especially with such a bland villain to close out the issue. At least we had plenty of David Lafuente awesomeness to even things out. Read Full Review
