Never realized how much I missed Harry Osborne.

Loved the heart attack angle with JJJ.

They finally give Aunt May something to do besides being a shoulder to cry on.

Loved the job interview page.

The new women in the book have been given good characterization for this being their first real appearance: Carlie the bookish cop, Lilly the spoiled rich daughter, Mia the wannabe socialite.

I may go back and buy some extra copies just to spite all the nay-sayers that have dropped the book. That's how much I like the new direction.

I liked it too. Spiderman didn't really appear in it yet it was a good and more importantly fun read (the job solicitation was funny. I assume all of you noted the other vacancies like "Master's degree in jantorial studies" or "Toaster repairman. Needed Ph.d in bread into toast string theory"). Spiderman/Peter Parker is again a loner like he originally was when i read the character and storywise it's for the better as that's when he really was more interesting.
I find the art interesting and fresh (It seems more realistic yet light and fresh. But i yet have to see a good dynamic Spiderman action scene to give it a complete judgement as I suspect the style is less dynamic).

The bad: they should've used the Harry extra-story to explain how he got back and what exactely happened in his death story. I expected an important and confusing topic like to be handled right away (and it should've).
The aunt may and osborn extra-stories didn't interest me at all.
Also Peter saying he is too young to get married was a weird and unusual comment (almost a forced backstabbing comment to the marriage-fans).

Overall i'm interested in the next issue.
