Comics were 75 cents when I started buying them and they should have stayed that way! :x

FYI: MY REVIEW THIS WEEK IS A BIT MORE SPOILERY THAN USUAL
[spoiler]Joe Kelly does his normal fantastic writing job here, he gets inside the head of every character he can. In the back up, you see how Aleksei becomes a changed man, and why. Remarkably, it comes off as more believable than the similar storyline given to Fisk in Daredevil. The scribe here manages to do in one short story, what Brubaker could not in a storyline... he makes the rehabilitation of the character believable. It is a monumental task that is handled with grace. Just as skillfully, Kelly brings the quips and insecurities of the title character that longtime fans love, all while progressing the storyline that has been in play since JMS left the title.[/spoiler]

Fiumara is an unbelievable talent. While there are certainly readers who would prefer to see more of the dark and fantastic Depression era of the creative team’s Four Eyes rather than the adventures of one of my favorite superheroes, seeing the two work together is still a joy. Fiumara tones down his style ever so slightly, taking on more common designs for the characters - so there is no doubt who is who. All the while, he keeps the action moving, crisp and clear.

Pulido does an even more interesting job on his short than the remarkable pencils he gave Van Lente’s Sandman arc immediately preceding this done in one chapter of "The Gauntlet." In the Sandman story, he walked the edge of a more common Spidey look (maybe even classic) and the Phillips-esque noir of Azaceta’s pencils before it. Here, the short story about Rhino’s post Civil War life looks like it could have been from the seventies or eighties. Hollingsworth even gives it that four color pallette as opposed to the 24-bit true color of D’Auria’s coloring in the main story.

I agree about the covers. I didn't pick up the issue but I saw the three covers lined up just like that but it looked very cool.
