I really enjoyed the JJJ scene in this book. The dialog was really cutesy non-stop throughout the entire book, and it was a little bit annoying, even as a huge fan of The Great One. Maybe I'm just not used to it since I stopped reading due to the horrific art of David Lafuente. That being said, Chris Samnee is much, much better. I'm a big fan of his since his portrayal of Volstag in Siege: Embedded. It's good to see Peter back with Mary Jane. I do have to question the wisdom of Peter getting a job that he can "not show up to and not get fired," it's basically like saying "let's eliminate this angle for all future plotlines." Seems silly. However, I guess since Spider-Man will be "dying" in a few issues, it may be a "let's finally give him everything he wants right before he loses it all forever" type of thing, which would explain him getting MJ back as well (this also effectively makes this issue better than every issue of ASM for the past two years). Why you would have the Ultimate version of your character, a teenager, be with Mary Jane, but the 40 year old mainstream universe character has to be a hip young swinger is baffling to me.

It's a process. Last time he was over, he went through my box of comics from the last two months or so. Hopefully something besides DC caught his interest.

This time they should chop off both his hands, that would make the character interesting finally.
