    Nice recap by both posts. My question is: Shouldn't Jonah have far more disdain for Osborn for pretty much stealing the Bugle from him in the past? I think he should hate the guy.

Very good point Inn. I'm assuming you are refering to those issues of Spectacular Spider-Man pencilled by Luke Ross right? In those issues, Jameson was almost ready to kill Osborn for threatening his wife (using Jack O'Lantern), so you make a really good point. Even then, Osborn had a position of power over Jonah and Jonah - though he was forced to kiss Osborn's ass - reluctantly went along with it.

    In addition, Jonah, with all his hatred of Spiderman is still an ethical journalist deep down and knows the truth about Osborn and his nature is not to kiss anyone's butt. He wouldn't hesitate to write an editorial criticizing something he sees as wrong. He knows Osborn isn't a hero. I think he'd tell him that.

    Other than that,loved the issue. Banter is great.

The humour in this book was awesome. Kelly really excels at making stuff funny without it feeling "forced".
