Review by Scott Keys
The final chapter of this amazing, spectacular mini-series featuring Peter Parker, Spider-Man! Hands down, one of the most well-written, gorgeous comics books that I’ve ever read!
We finally find out that the person pulling the strings of old Web-head’s recent tribulations was none other than Wilson Fisk, the Kingpin…well, actually his son Richard set it up, but it was at the behest of the Kingpin. See, Fisk didn’t think that Spidey would make it through the gauntlet that his son had set up for him, but boy was he wrong! Not only that, but when Pete finally made it to the “boss level,” he kinda went Mortal Kombat on old Wilson! Of course, Wilson gave as good as he got, and Richard had to step in to tell Pete the truth about the whole thing! After that, it’s back to MJ, and all is right in Pete’s world (for now).
As I said at the beginning, this series was one of the best written, insanely gorgeous books that I’ve ever had the pleasure of reading! I want this team to tell more tales of Spidey! Kindt’s writing with Rudy and Staples art is the best combination that I’ve ever seen on a super-hero title… scratch that, on ANY title! Go get the back issues, or wait for the hardcover (hopefully oversized to show off the beautiful Rudy & Staples art), but DON’T pass this book up! Seriously! It’s storytelling at it’s finest!
