    By far some of the best Marvel has to offer these days. My favorite comic book is now my favorite once again. It's amazing I pay $2.25 for this, yet $2.95 and $3.50 for Jeph Loeb efforts with the same amount of pages and a fifth less. Read Full Review

Now this issue doesn't really play fair, as while Peter is allowed to make some fairly solid sounding arguments, and I must confess I found his tirade in the classroom to be a truly wonderful slam against the justice system, the simple fact is that the reason why Peter ends up looking like he's the only one with his head on straight is because the people he's going up against aren't allowed to respond in an effective manner. I mean I simply didn't buy into the idea that J. Jonah Jameson wouldn't respond to Peter's accusations, as if there's one character who will bluster his way into an argument without a leg to stand on, it would be everyone's favorite blowhard. Still, this issue leaves Peter in a rather interesting position, as not only is he fired, bu Read Full Review
