The second part of the Hobgoblin vs Hobgoblin story arc continues with Parker and Modell running for dear life while the two Hobgoblins give chase.
The art for the book lead by artist Guiseppi Camuncoli looks nice. Ever since the last Lizard arc, I have to admit that the artwork is starting to grow and now I can say that its really nice. The facial expressions and action sequences are great although, the artist seems to have a hard time doing dynamic motions for the book.
Slott goes and puts some nice little tidbits in preparation for his next arc which will "change Spider-Man and Peter Parker's lives forever". Its these little quirks that makes Spider-Man such an interesting read every moment.
Slott's nice writing made it possible to introduce crazy ideas such as Spider-Man taking a note from his archenemy Norman Osborn's secret arsenal...
Slott and company also manages to bring in a couple of loose characters that haven't been seen in ASM for quite some time now including Harry Osborn...
|There's this panel which made Harry Osborn look like Hughie from "The Boys"|
There are also a number of Octobots running around the city and pointing back to the imminent return of Doctor Octopus next issue.
Anyway there are a number of things to love in this issue. There's a bit of Osborn's, a little tension about the future of Peter's super powered career and then there's also that moment when we find out that Kingpin has more plans. Oh and then there's also Julia Carter's condition after her breakdown two issues ago.
