Without giving any spoilers, I found this to be the best Spidey story I have read so far, after the OMD thing. You guys should pick this book up, even if you hate the current direction. Just check it out, you are in for a treat!

Zeb Wells arc was the first one that I liked. Not liked, since I thought the first 3 arcs were absolutely horrid. But his winter story was great. Awesome. I've re-read it multiple times.

And I guess I've gotten used to the grittier Punisher that we have in the MU. MAX has made him a success, and even War Journal is a bit more dark than what's preceeded it. So to me, Punisher felt a bit off. The way the story started felt like I was watching a summer blockbuster film, maybe the 2004 Punisher film, rather than the Punisher from War Journal (where Spidey has appeared a few times).

But there were other Punisher moment that felt pretty good. Pretty much the rest of the issue. The letter on the recap page was nice, and the interaction was Spidey was top notch. And even though a completely different author and artist did the Bookie/JJJ story in the middle, it didn't seem to interrupt the story.

I was also a bit afraid about the cab driving scene. I thought "He doesn't have a license", but then my fears went away.

Overall, I'd say this is a great story, and I hate that Mr. Wells is leaving so soon. I think his last story is in the next BND Extra issue.

Speculation: Anybody else think that isn't Jonah?
