Review

When you’re an established writer, you tend to have your mark that you leave both on the reader and the character. Think about Stan Lee: Bombastic, epic storytelling with two of the best at what they did in terms of Artists. While I had my complaints about Klaus Janson last time, I feel more confortable with his artwork this time around. Perhaps its because I was so engrossed in the story that I felt this way but I didn’t

feel as passionate about the complaints this go around as I did last time. The problems are still there and they still exist, but its not as in-your-face as before. Morell has done a very good job getting the voice of the charater down, and working along with Janson to get to feel of this story right. He’s a compent writer, more than that really, he’s a good writer and a successful one and the voice of Peter is right. When I was reading this book, I did notice the problems Mr. Morell had with the book in terms of the final product. Supposedly, there will be the corrected version on the book in the trade, but since the guy was offering both a copy of corrections and a how-to guide as to how to write comics, it seemed that he was pretty peeved off originally and has cooled as time has gone on. It is difficult for me to just gloss over the problems, espeically some this glaring, but I feel that I have to look above those things as I’m reading them, mainly to not sound just like others when discussing this storyline. Alot of times, a stock story doesn’t have the impact on the reader that it was intended, sometimes a stock story is just that, a medicore issue that won’t knock your socks off. But for some reason, I suppose it is because it has been refereshing to read a Peter Parker that isn’t at time a dithering jerkface who just really wants to take over the world pinky and the brain style. This Peter Parker is true to chracter and I can’t help but grade the story as a whole of both parts. We all knew that this would end with Peter saving the day, but it really encompasses what makes us love the character. We need to reminded of that at times, because far too often we take for granted the characters we love. As for the series of unfortunate events (IE, the driver on the bridge, the ambulance) I thought it was fine, that despite a A strong start last issue leads to a solid (Notwithstanding the errors) second helping.
