        Don't know why I bought this. Maybe it was only because it was a one shot. Maybe it was because Bill Hader is pretty darn funny. Maybe it was because I love me some Spidey, but this is one issue I really regret buying. It was horrible. Not funny, not adventurous, something that I will forget reading in about 30 minutes. It is rare that I wish I could return a comic and get my money back, but this was one of those. Please stay away if you haven't bought it yet. Ugh!!


        Whereas I loved it. I found this comic to be very charming and a fun romp. I've no doubt that MaGuire's art had alot to do with it, but I found myself wanting this team to do a limited series focused on a group of villians plotting against Spidey.

    Maguire's art was very nice to look at. Some of his Spider-Man shots were very Romita-esque. Didn't care too much about the story itself. It was very "blah", with jokes feeling very forced and not very funny at all. Nothing really special about this issue.



    I also think the timing of this issue hurt a bit. If it had come out in October I think I may have been able to go along with it a little bit better. Reading it in May/June right as summer is starting just felt very off.

    Yes, to be fair. The art was nice, and there were some panels that really were great. Just didn't feel any connection to the story and the narrative and dialogue felt very forced.
