    Sorry for the very late review, I've been a busy boy

Worth the wait.

    Wall-to-wall action page after page, but no answer to a straight couple of questions. Clearly this story wants to have a large volume of pages for the trade but Spencer lacks the willpower to really be creative with it and give us everything we need to know.

    The placement of the order of the web, Sin-Eater, and Mary Jane makes it seemingly apparent Harry desires the luxury of an entire audience for Peter's confession, so the others can stand in judgement on him, and on MJ too should her connections to Mysterio see the light of day as she intends to confess her own 'sins' to Peter.

Still... anxious to see if all this touches on the BND Mephisto connection too...

    The art is great in some areas, Bagley hasn't lost most of his touch, so there are instances where I feel he's rushing through it a tad

Yeah. The random poser cover was very peeving. MJ wearing hotsy totsy clothes to a cemetary was an odd choice. And not just here but FOREVER it taints a book with a lazy air when Spidey's black web lines do not get drawn on the red chest/mask when clearly they should at detailed magnification.

    Harry's numerous means of torturing Peter also seems to pay slight homage to moments in Batman comics such as the crowbarring of Jason Todd in 'Death In The Family' and the breaking of Bruce's back in 'Knightfall'.

Hmm... Was that back break pose front and center FIRST use in a comic with Bane & Bats? Wonder what other homage books had it done in subsequent comics.

    With only two issues to go, I'm not expecting much out of the filler issue of .LR#54 other than finding out how MJ followed the Order to Harry's lair. More to the point, Harry is very much aware of why MJ is there and everything appears to be going by his design. Let's hope the final part of this, issue 55, sticks the landings and brings us fimrly to where we need to be

Let's hope.
