This book sees the introduction of Tarantula, another spidery character that I will be following as part of this project.
(I haven’t really made it clear up until now, but in addition to reading Spider-Man appearances, I’m also going to keep up with the various Spider-Women, Venom, the Tarantulas, etc. Perhaps I should add a note about that somewhere.)
In this issue, Peter is careless and Harry Osborn is finally able to confirm that Peter Parker is Spider-Man.
I quite liked this issue. The pace was brisk, the action fun, the art crisp and clean. I also really love the Tarantula.
