Wells does a nice job of injecting humor into this issue, as Spidey goes through a situation that’s pretty tense and devoid of natural humor. It doesn’t feel forced or contrived. That takes skill.

There’s also a sweet scene between Peter and Aunt May that, in a lot of ways, encapsulates their relationship at large.

I can’t say this first story has blown me away. But at the very least, Wells and Romita have me interested in coming back for more.
