Decent issue about Norman Osborn and his ex-partner, Mendel Stromm. Looks like we’re finally leading up to the big Green Goblin reveal (in Amazing; the Goblin’s identity was already revealed in Untold Tales). It should be cool to have Spider-Man figure it out.
I don’t have much to say about this, other than that I enjoyed it. It was surprising to have Mendel Stromm die (of a heart attack, no less) in the issue. I’m pretty sure he comes back later, so I’m curious about how that’ll work.
