The Scorpion was just the beginning!

Alistair Smythe, the Spider-Slayer, has returned - and Mac Gargan isn't the only subject he's upgraded. The Spider-Slayer is about to unleash an entire insect army on Spider-Man's world! And as part of his ultimate revenge, Smythe is out turn one of Spidey's first-ever victories into one of his biggest losses. No one in Spidey's life is safe! And amid the fallout from these events, Peter will make a choice - a promise - even he might not be able to fulfill.

Plus: Spider-Man visits the FF for a very private wake - just for family - and a new web-slinger is born!

Collecting AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #652-657 and #654.1.

I've read a lot of the more recent story arcs, particularly after the lamentable One More Day, and have to admit I've found the treatment of the web-slinger to be pretty admirable since then.
