Kingpin is here and up to no good. We find out that Peter's secret agent father had a bad habit of cracking jokes during battle, which explains a lot about our web-slinger's own personality quirk. The Parker's secret past is given a little more back story, and Theresa (Peter's sister) is just about as cool a character as any introduced in years. The artwork here is very good, with a painted look a lot like Alex Ross is known for.
As a stand alone tale, it's great. It's a very nice visit from Peter while we patiently await his return to the Marvel Universe in his own title soon. Waid perfectly captures Spidey's personality while giving us some great action and a compelling story.
Oh yeah... and the Kingpin of Crime is involved too!
Great story, brilliant art, and an epilogue few will believe until it is seen.
As I began to read I became more and more into the book, its writing was solid, its action was good, its art was beautiful. I checked my prejudice against the idea at the door and decided to just see if they could make it work. And for a while they nailed it perfectly, delivering an excellent Spider-Man story.
Unfortunately, I had to pump the brakes on my hype train after about the halfway point. After a truly great fight scene they start to solve the mystery and it starts to trip up a little bit. It never gets bad, it's always a good solid read, but it can't maintain the awesomeness of the first part.
If you like Spider-Man, you should like this. Maybe you'll even love it. But it's a solid read that's great to look at, a worthy addition to any Spider-fan's library.
