    In fact if nothing else this issue felt like a bid to recapture the emotional impact of that memorable issue, rather than one that carved its own path. However, there's some solid moments in this issue, from the exchange where Peter explains the sorry state of his face to Aunt May, to the closing scene where Doctor Octopus is on hand to watch his arms being melted down, and one has to love Nick Fury's final line to the guard. The final pages also manage to do an amusing job of rubbing salt into the wound, as we learn "Spider-Man: The Movie" was a raging success As for the art Mark Bagley remains a vital part of this book's success, as his characters are highly expressive, and he clearly knows how to capture the emotional beats of a story, from the tension of the opening sequence, to the sense of loss when Doctor Octopus' arms are melts down. There's also the fun little detail that is Peter's dental gauze, as it's a great attention to detail moment. Read Full Review
