Spider-Island continues to be a really enjoyable and surprising event. I loved seeing Peter Parker be heroic without being Spider-Man, and the way he rallied the New Yorkers was pretty awe-inspiring stuff. It reminded me of the Twitter stuff that went on with the London Riots clean-up, but was also the purest expression of Spider-Man’s New Yorkiness I’ve read in a while. He’s the quintessential New York Hero, and Slott is having a lot of fun exploring that. The mystery of Number Six continues to baffle me, I literally have no idea who it is. Is it Ben Reilly? At first I thought it was Doctor Octopus, but now I’m not so sure. One weird thing about this event though is that the last issue of Venom revealed that Spider-King was Steve Rogers, but this issue makes no mention of it at all, weird timing. But I’m sure it’ll all work out in the end, Slott has a lot of webs here, and so far it’s looking like he’ll make it all work.

I picked up the first part of this and enjoyed it enough to pick up this issue as well. These are my first issues of ASM since before Brand New Day, so I am not 100% up to speed on the current going-ons in all things Spidey. That being said, I was a little discouraged that Quesada made it his personal mission in life to end Peter and Mary Jane's marriage, only to continue to have her linger around in the background as a "will they/won't they" plot device. That shit is old and boring.

Other than that, the past two issues have been a fun read for me. I am interested in seeing where this story goes, although I will be even more discouraged if the main villain turns out to be the Queen. I know it probably will be but here's hoping.
