John Romita Jr’s work at DC soured me on him for many years. At the risk of being overly harsh, it just wasn’t very good. But I’ll say this much: There’s something about the combination of Romita and Spider-Man that just works. I’m not his biggest fan, but I can’t dump on him much for this issue.

Everybody’s mad at Peter Parker when we open this book, and for jumpers-on like me, it doesn’t do the best job of explaining why. We can chalk it up to the ol’ Parker luck, though. This is a solid first issue.
