These issues of the Amazing Spider-Man - #552-558 - are collected as Spider-Man: Brand New Day Volume 2 TPB: Brand New Day v. 2 (Graphic Novel Pb), and continue the break-neck pace of the story from the previous volume - Spider-Man: Brand New Day Volume 1 Premiere HC (Amazing Spider-Man), though this time it is Spider-Man, not Peter Parker, who gives Jonah Jameson a heart attack. A new monstery villain is introduced - the Freak - who was the chap who broke into what turned out to be Curt Connors' laboratory last issue and stole some of his make-me-a-monster formula. Plenty of continuing sub-plots continue, as the new characters continue to build up their characterisation, and we get a team-up with Doctor Strange and Wolverine to fight off some Ancient Mayan Ninjas in a blizzard, and a return encounter with the mysterious Menace.
I found it an enjoyable read, with excellent scripting and artwork. This Brand New Day series is an excellent starting point for new readers. I look forward to reading the next collection.
