You see them as a brain, an athlete, a basket case, a princess and a criminal. That's the way Peter, Mary Jane, Liz, Flash and Kong saw each other at 7:00 this morning. But when detention is over, nothing will ever be the same again!

    Mark Bagley is called upon to deliver an issue where there's very little in the way of action, and one's enjoyment of the material is largely dependant of being able to follow the emotional reactions of the various characters. Now Mark Bagley does a pretty solid job of rising to the task, as the book features several solid reaction shots from the scene where Mary Jane reacts to Flash's cruel comments in the hall, to the scene where Flash reacts after Mary Jane uncovers the truth. There's also a nice flash of genuine anger in the scene where Peter confronts the muggers and orders them to change their lives. There's also a nice quiet little panel when Mary Jane reacts to Peter brushing off her efforts to cheer him up, and the final panel of the issue does a solid job reflecting Peter's inner turmoil. It's also nice to get a cover image that is reflective of the story we get inside. Read Full Review
