| > Marcos Martin was as brilliant as ever and the story hit all the right Spidey beats whilst delivering something new. The bit where the model asked Peter what he does was hilarious. Great to see Spider-Man out of his element whilst keeping it (relatively) down to earth and situated in New York. I love that the Shocker is being played straight and serious as he was originally, and not the weak sauce throwaway villain version we've seen in recent years. JJJ Sr! That came out of nowhere - in the best kind of way! I can hardly wait to see how they follow up on that! If he can keep this level of quality up then I hope Mark Waid sticks around as long as possible.|
I just finished reading it myself and I enjoyed it a lot. I agree with your assessment of the issue 100%. I didn't really expect much from Mark Waid but I was pleasantly surprised. Another thing worth mentioning is the cover for AMZ 579, which is shown on the letters page. Looks sweet!
Just read this one last night and I, too, loved it. Some great humor, incredible artwork, and overall it just really struck the right tone. Loved the last page, too.
