Everyone else seems really excited about this new arc. I'm giving it 4 stars because it is strong writing with great visual representation. That being said, however, I'm still waiting for this story to move itself along. I feel like I bought a comic for essentially one scene - Peter begging Tony for financial help for Aunt May. There were a couple of other components to the plot but they felt very over-shadowed.
If there isn't any action after the JMS run, I'll probably drop this book from my pull list. I don't need 3 books in a one month that don't have any resolutions.
The book includes some goodies at the end which make it a lot more interesting than 12 pages of advertising. It's like having a mini Spider-Man encyclopedia in your hands.
