I really fucked up giving Dan Slott’s Spider-Man a pass all these years. He’s pretty darn good at writin’ ole’webhead. Slott’s stuff is the BEST Spider-Man I have read in years, if not ever. Dan really changes things up with both Peter and Spidey in this one. New girl, new job, and new life and it’s a breath of fresh air. I love that Slott actually give Peter a shot at being happy. I mean a guy that’s smart enough to create web-fluid (I mean the Spider-Man kind, not the “Regular-Man” kind) should be able to get a fucking job doing something intelligent. Of course, all of Spidey’s regular cast is present and accounted for. But, the new job brings in a bunch of fresh supporting characters for Slott to play with and I for one really appreciated the new faces. Like the change up from Mary Jane too. Peter needed some strange. Slott’s Hobgoblin is pretty kick-ass. Great baddies in this one.
