    Web #38 (Moving Up)
    Under a fairly redundant cover, the entertaining story of Peter’s farewell to his “bachelor pad.” The Hobgoblin (Macendale) is looking for work from the Kingpin and is sent to kill Spider-Man. Meanwhile, Peter and MJ are hosting a bash at his old apartment. Unfortunately, someone spiked the punch, which causes issues for Spider-Man in battle. (“Mommy, did Spider-Man just burp?”) Fortunately, a timely equipment malfunction saves the day and Pete gives a Mrs. Muggins a heartfelt farewell.

This is the only Macendale Hobgoblin story I really like, because of the drunk (and not knowing it) Peter. Fun issue.

    Web #39 (Petty Crimes)
    Spider-Man vs. the Looter (post-loser status; pre-love affair with meteor) to save Nathan Lubensky’s watch. Meanwhile, Nathan tries to bridge the gaps with May after the incident in Spec #113.

I could go without a homeless but not loony Looter. I really like where Dezago and 'Ringo took him. It works really well for me, and I like to keep a little of the zany Lee / Ditko stuff around (if only the Enforcers were a more regular presence).

    In summary… Lifeline was a little disappointing, but the rest had me wishing there was more to go through.

You're the first person I've heard that has felt disappointed by Lifeline. I guess it's due to your pro-MJ / my anti-MJ bias. \:\-\)

IMO, Lifeline is one of my favorite mini-series, and the only real "gem" that makes me wish Nicieza had written more Spider-Man (I also enjoy Final Adventure, cause I live in the Portland, OR area, and it's neat to see Peter on my turf).
