Coming right after a big event like Spider-Island, stories like this are always going to seem like a bit of a disappointment, the stakes aren’t as high and less surprising stuff happens, but this was nevertheless a very enjoyable issue of ASM. I liked how Slott showed the lasting impact of Spider-Island throughout the issue (although the emo kid shouting ‘Occupy Spider-Island’ was lame as hell) and I’m glad that Peter and Carlie aren’t going to be at each other’s throats. The revamp of the Vulture is OK I guess, but didn’t he get terminal cancer like 5 years ago in real world time? Shouldn’t be dead by now? Or was he cured? Either way, he’s a creepy old dude and it’s good to have him back. The art was good too, you wouldn’t think Klaus Janson inks would work with Camuncoli’s pencils, but they really do.
