Overall this was just kinda mediocre, but here’s what I liked:

  • When the Daredevil and Spider-Man first fight, the Daredevil wins! I didn’t see that coming.
  • How mean Spider-Man is about Foggy Nelson’s weight (including calling him “butterball”). Sometimes Spidey’s a real jerk.
  • There’s an awesome line Daredevil has. The Masked Maurader’s got an “opti-blast” that blinds people. He threatens DD who replies “I haven’t enough sense to be frightened!”. Since Daredevil’s blind – i.e. doesn’t have the sense of sight – he has no need to be frightened. Sweet.

This is the first time I’ve read Romita Sr. books. Even though it’s not actually a Spider-Man title, it’s interesting to see how his take on Spidey differs from Ditko’s (and Kirby’s I guess). I actually like Romita’s Spider-Man, but maybe not as much as the later Ditko stuff. I assume, though, that Romita will improve once he takes over and has more time with the character. Peter looks really cool, though, like some kinda hip vampire.
