The GoodThe first story tells the first meeting between Spider-Man and Captain America. Let's think about that, two of my favorite Marvel characters. The writing by Karl Kesel and art by Paulo Siqueira are a treat. This is early in Spidey's career. While reading the first few pages I wondered when this was supposed to take place. You know what they did here? They actually put in a footnote indicating that this story took place a few days after Avengers #11.
Spider-Man really geeks out inside when he first talks to Captain America. Mentioning (to himself) how Uncle Ben used to go on and on about him was a nice touch. It was also great seeing Spider-Man be able to use his brilliant mind to help out the super-brilliant Rogue Scholars. Too often Spidey's intelligence is overlooked due to his "witty puns."
The second story brought a big smile on my face since it brought back the original team of creators for Untold Tales of Spider-Man ( Kurt Busiek & Pat Olliffe). If you haven't and are able to, you have to read that series from 1995. Again, it's new "old" Spider-Man stories. They were written in a way that fits in perfectly with the old existing stories. I really feel like digging out my old collection of those issues.
