When you’re getting Spider-Man three times a month it’s easy not to sweat the small stuff. 

For example, is Jackpot Mary Jane?  If she is then there had better be a good explanation and if she isn’t then there better be a good explanation as to why she seems to talk almost exclusively in MJ catch phrases.  In a monthly series I’d be pulling my hair out about this, but at the near-weekly speed that Amazing Spider-Man is hitting the stands its far easier to just go along for the ride and enjoy the great Spidey stories we’ve gotten so far.

At some point someone is going to drop the ball, but Marc Guggenheim is carrying it with confidence.  This is the Peter Parker we all love, and whatever garbage Marvel had to force down our throats to break up the Parkers’ marriage seems to have been worth it with a revitalized character and an exciting title and direction.

Salvador Larroca’s art is, like most painted comic art, nice to look at in places but awkward and annoying everywhere else.

Story: 4 - Very Good
Art: 1 - Poor

  1. Wait aminute, did anyone else notice Ron’s name in this issue?  THe page witht he lawyer and the guy trying to sue Spidey, last panel on the court document, and you see Ron Richards listed as "Dep. Clk."

  2. What?  Now I have to go re-read this again.  Damn you inside jokes, damn you.

  3. I checked and you’re right, not that I thought you were lying or crazy, it is Ron Richards.  So far unmentioned cousin of Reed, or a possible new career for an iFanboy?
