...To quote Kelly Clarkson.

Sin Eater uses some of his men, now transformed into man-spiders by the Spider-Queen's virus, as bait for Morlun, Morlun consumes them, and confronts Sin Eater. Morlun almost beats him but Sin Eater triggers a hidden shotgun blast which takes Morlun down from behind.

In the astral plane, Doctor Strange and the Order of the Web battle a six-armed demon brandishing guns, a gigantic demonic Wilson Fisk, zombified Aunt Mays, and OMD MJ, now revealed herself as a demon. Strange delays the demon MJ long enough for the Spiders to enter Kindred's graveyard realm, little suspecting Sin Eater lies in ambush


My thoughts

A big load of nothing happening in this one. Morlun at his most ineffectual, a man who took and tested Peter to his limits is easily jobbed out to Sin Eater in a span of only a few pages. We get no real elaboration on what the demonic Mary Jane is other than...a demon? That's it?

The conversation between Gwen and Julia was alright I guess, but didn't tell us anything about Peter we haven't experienced before. Who was that demon with the six arms and a gun and how vital is he to Peter's history?

Very confusing issue, and the plot didn't advance a jot.


> Who was that demon with the six arms and a gun and how vital is he to Peter's history?

That was the sniper from Back in Black (who shot Aunt May, which set in chain the events leading to One More Day).

I agree this was a pretty "meh" issue, but it's clear that Spencer is leading up to a major reversal of OMD, which will make up for this arc dragging.
