  I don't understand how this is an 'essential' issue?

  @Utumieli, I am going to have to agree... not sure why.

  I think it might be that it's the issue that Harry Osborn finds out for sure that Peter is Spider-Man.

  WTF?! Only two tiny panels for the huge bombshell of Harry Osborn figuring out Spider-Man's secret identity? Then back to the meh Tarantula story. Spidey is really suffering without Stan Lee.

  First appearance of badass Tarantula and Punisher as a bonus is more than enough for this issue to be essential for me.

  Tarantula was lame, but interested in what will happen with The Punisher an Harry next issue.

  How is it legal for the city of New York to force a privately owned business to pony up the money for a ransom?

  So wait...was Punisher on the boat the whole time? According to Flash the boat's been hijacked for a couple hours. What has Punisher been up to that whole time?

  Blackmail, illegal immigrants, and a titanic cliffhanger. This issue is a Republican's worst nightmare.

  So is the Punisher working with Tarantula? Maybe this was a scheme to get Spider-Man to come out? Feels weird to have the Punisher referred to as a super-villain on the cover, but I guess that was what they were going for originally.
I thought Harry already knew Peter was Spidey? I guess this was just confirmation? And Flash was so close to figuring it out too, unfortunately he's just really not smart.

  The cover promised a shocking return villain... and it delivered.

  Harry found out about Peter, and all we got was a promise to find out more next issue?
