Spider-Man never ceases to amaze me.  I try to push the comics I am most excited for to the bottom of the stack.  Amazing Spider-Man always seems to be at the bottom.  This book is just fun and enjoyable.  While it may not be extremely intellectually stimulating, this is story telling at its finest.  The character development is thorough and the plots are bulletproof.

In this issue we find Peter confronting his aunt after a haunting, if not somewhat relatable, scene with J. Jonah Jameson Sr.  I think at one point we have all thought to ourselves “how gross would it be if….”.  I was particularly touched by the panel in which Peter looks at the photograph of Aunt May and Uncle Ben, sort of a throw away scene but establishes Peter’s mindset very well.  As for the writing, the dialouge seems very believable and one of the more admirable qualities of the book, it feels very natural.  The rest of the issue finds our hero attempting to go over board with the vigilanty’ism to do a little PR work.

The Art is well done, nothing extravagent but nothing to complain about either.  This is very nit-picky but there always seems to be a size difference in the size of Spider-Man versus Peter Parker.  This is one of the few issues where it was noteworthy.  It always seems like Spider-Man is still a teenager while Peter Parker is a twenty something.  If I were to make another note, it would be that it doesn’t seem like Mike McKone knew where to go with the new Vulture’s design.  Joe Quesada’s cover is extremely well done and makes me wish that he would do a few more in the future.
