I was not sure what I was expecting when I read this but, WOW. I loved it, we all know Peter Parker will be back eventually. So I do not mind some Doctor Octopus Spider-Man while we wait. This issue was pacy, intelligent, funny (at moments) and violent for your usual Spider-Man comic, after read #700, this is very good. Art is great. I applaud Dan Slott for his consistent great work on Spider-Man.
