this is not peter parker...

i'm a huge spider-man fan, i really am. he's definitely my favorite, and ASM has always been my favorite book. but this issue was a little bit of a let down. or maybe not just a little bit. i'm really excited that mary jane is coming back because i love her and i want to see her and pete get back together, but the depiction of her character art-wise was horrible. i mean really look at this:

is that super model face to you? no. its a female professional wrestler face. lame. which is sad because i really liked albertis art of spider-man in costume, i thought that was great. 
 
as for the story, i didn't get it. i thought this was peter parker. mr. "responsibility." all the sudden he's getting drunk and sleeping around? hangovers? what? since when? i feel like that was forced just because every other movie has a seen like that. it definitely seemed out of character for him and i didn't like that at all. part of the reason i loved his character is because of how much respect i had for him, so this seemd a little wacky.
 
good things? like i said the spidey art was cool. other than that..... um i can't really remember much else that i liked. oh oh, one part where betty was teasing pete about mj. that was funny. yea.... thats about it.
 
so overall, if your a big spidey fan and don't want a gap in your collection, pick it up. other than that dont spend your money.

    To be honest I only tracked down this issue because of the somewhat iconic cover.  In the end though it is not surprising that this issue is known for the cover because the inside is not particularly well done.  Despite being only a few years old at this point, the dialogue is sufficiently dated and the action is not much different from what you might expect from one of the 1960s cartoons.  The plot is focusing though around the return of Mary Jane, but the characters are struggling to make a da...
