Spider-Man is a killer. In 1987, Peter Parker followed Wolverine to Russia, who was on the trail of a friend working for the KGB. Realizing that the KGB would eventually kill his friend, Wolverine wanted to put her out of her misery. Peter tried to stop him, but accidentally killed the friend instead. Haunted by his actions, Peter fled home into the waiting arms of Mary Jane. But WHAT IF…Peter never went home? WHAT IF…the Spider never came out of the cold?

    Few comics have left me as giddy as a school kid as this book did. Great art, excellent story and a cool and unique take on established characters with lots of memorable mmoments. I see myself going back to this book over and over throughout the years to come. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - David Wallace Feb 7, 2008

    The most damning thing I can say about the book is that I picked it up to reread it before writing this review, only to realize that I'd already given it a second read half an hour beforehand - and it had completely gone out of my mind. So, whilst it's not a completely awful story, and the art is nice, it's obviously not a particularly memorable or distinctive tale either. I'd love to see Clayton Henry get another chance to draw the web-slinger as he has an evident gift for depicting the character, and I'm sure that the writers of this issue have it in them do something interesting with both Spider-Man and Wolverine, but this book isn't it.

    Nostalgic cover aside, the issue is basically worthless to anyone who hasn't read the original one-shot. And even then, it comes off a little shallow on story. I don't mean to be overly critical, but I really am scratching my head over why this book even exists. Read Full Review
