I’m glad to get back to these Busiek Amazing Fantasy stories. The first one was really great, and so was this one. The Kingpin actually makes an appearance here, but I’m confused about what stage of his “career” he’s at. Bah.
This story is still focusing on Peter adjusting to his new powers and trying to find his place in the world. Along with his powers, he also still struggling with the responsibilities that come with them. All of this is complicated further by Peter’s intense loneliness, which leads to his new friendship with Joey, a super-powered teenage girl under the employ of the Kingpin.
Busiek’s writing continues to be great, and the paintings in this issue are fantastic.
