This issue is even darker than the last, and I actually cringed and let out a little gasp while Ock was smashing Spidey into the ground. This was seriously affective.
About placement: my theory is that there are a few weeks between the first issue and the rest of the series. This is supported by a bunch of bits of evidence, and my own desire to have the first issue around the same time as the Superman thing. I don’t have an idea yet exactly where issues 2-5 should go, but after I read a few more issues of things I should have a decent idea, and then I’ll post a full explanation of my thinking.
Anyway, fantastic issue, a wonderful conclusion to a great series. I love that Haight only kinda redeemed himself, but was still a complete douchebag.
