A second Petey story in the same issue? Blimey! This one was actually pretty good.

[SPOILERS]

Petey and Flash are bothing trying to win a jelly bean counting contest, though Flash is trying to do it by copying Petey’s answer. His plan, of course, backfires.

[END SPOILERS]

I liked the writing here, there were some nice subtle details: Flash suggesting that Liz’s scream might be because she saw a spider, a callback to the story in Marvel Age 085 with Auny May’s prescriptions, a couple of good bean puns. Overall, I’m quite pleased.

What’s up with the inconsistent writing, Hembeck?
