An enjoyable issue that did really well in establishing a connection between Spider-Man and Captain America, and drawing the appropriate parallels. Both characters were weedy nerds before they got their super-powers, but whereas Peter Parker continued to be a dork, Steve Rogers left it all behind and became basically a full-time superhero (although wasn’t he a comic-book artist for Marvel in the 70s? I’m surprised they didn’t mention that). Here, Peter helps Steve rediscover something of who he was before the super-soldier serum, and it’s really quite sweet. It’s also of course very funny, Zeb Wells writes some damn good comedy. I especially liked how he turned Leinil Yu drawing Hawkeye in the wrong costume into a nice joke, and the stuff about Liberty Bonds was hilarious. Apart from the Hawkeye costume stuff, Yu’s art was of course fantastic, he’s a great artist, and although I love his creator-owned books with Millar, he’s always a welcome sight on a Marvel book. One thing I thought was interesting here was that it continued the Serpent Society plotline from #4, is Wells developing more here than just fun team-ups? Is there a deeper plot?

Captain America was indeed a comic artist drawing Captain America in the 80s.
