There are 150 variants of this issue, mostly because there is the whole Spider-Man saves your LCS from mayhem approach. I like this primary cover, however, and the colors used on the font are fricking awesome.
This was one of the truest issues I have read when it came to characterization of everyone involved. It's pacing and flow was superb, and I actually felt like I was reading those characters; nothing seemed forced. I have and always will be a big fan of Caselli and I am stoked that he has done this issue and will be involved in a few more. I don't mind Ramos, but I just dig Caselli too much to ever pass on anything he is a part of.
This is just a minor complaint... there is A LOT that happens in this issue, and I feel that for someone who hasn't read many Spider-Man comics before, it might be very detrimental. There was just way too much, and it was as if Slott was trying to incorporate everything Spider-Man is a part of- Avengers, FF, Horizon Labs, girlfriend, training with Shang-Chi- all of that is in this comic and more; that's just crazy! Also, we've had so many "prologues" on the Road to Spider-Man snippets, I was kind of just ready to jump in, so I was a little disappointed to see another prologue.
Even though it's an extremely busy issue and a lot takes place, I cannot recommend any issue more than this. I was very pleased with the characters and their panel time, however little, was very well executed. I am very excited for the direction of this event and cannot wait. Stoked!!
