|Snap Judgment: Awesome|
Well, happy belated Valentines Day.
In this issue, it's Valentine's Day and Spider-man is spending it with the Vulture high above New York. Spidey gets his butt kicked and passes out in a alley.
Back at the Bugle, the staff is making plans for their evening. Turns out Peter Parker has 2 dates for the night.
There's more to it, but I don't want to spoil this one. Needless to say, hilarity ensues.
I love this issue - another gem in this series. Wonderful art, just look at the cover; there's one scene where Cooke emulates 70's style Marvel art that made me smile. The story is unassumingly sweet without being artificial. The way character's lives all intertwine by the end of the issue shows a real handle on plotting; and there are lots of laughs.
Poor Peter Parker just can't seem to win.
Go out, get this issue (and the one before it) and have a nice night with our friendly neighborhood Spider-man.
Until next time, happy reading.
