If Spider-Man thought Tarantula was tough enough just imagine how thrilled he must be to see the Punisher show up; but show up he does and it's Spider-Man who'll have to keep the peace.

Issue Review

Excellent stuff.
A genuinely interesting and dangerous villain, plus Spidey teaming with the Punisher. Still a new character, Punisher really impresses here.
The action sequences are great, too.
10/10

  Not really all that impressed with my first two encounters with The Punisher.

  I actually think the Punisher is pretty badass already.

  The Punisher was great in this, so much better than his first appearance. He showed he was not the average hero, doing a lot of research and planning and attacking with guns.

  Punisher was pretty sweet in this one.

  Tarantula: "Is that a sub-machine gun? To hell with this, you're crazy!"

Fantastic.

  Best story I've read in a while. Still only a 3 though. Ready for the next one.

  My only problem with Punisher is if he did all this homework and knew who the tarantula was, why did he believe him and almost kill Spidey at the end of last issue?

  I wonder when we'll get around to hearing the Punisher's classic backstory. I agree with the GatorMan though, it doesn't really track that Punisher would believe Spider-Man and Tarantula were working together, especially since he was turning his back on T to stop Spidey.
One thing that the Spidey stories are always good at is moving around the pieces in the background of the main story, setting things up for the future stories. Very interested in Green Goblin, Harry Edition.

  That Tarantula is a bad hombre. Here illegally, committing crimes and he probably organizes 3 million henchmen to commit voter fraud in an upcoming issue!

  I generally like Tarantula appearances, I also like Batroc though

Harry looks like the after picture in a Jack Chic Anti-Masturbation pamphlet

Now Playing: "Children of the Revolution" T-Rex

  Tarantula is a lame villain for sure but at least he's got an interesting background.

  I like the Tarantula as a villain; he's not in the class of, say, a Doc Ock or Vulture, but his background story works pretty well. One slight problem, and maybe this is a little nit-picky: his actions put him more on a par with a serial killer as opposed to a criminal revolutionary. Just an opinion.

The Punisher is coming more into his own here, too. Not all the pieces in place just yet, as he was carting the Tarantula off instead of putting a bullet in his head, but he's starting to become the bada$$ we all know and love.

And the turn with Harry is starting to get chilling. But ya ruined the surprise with the end page, Gerry! Yeah, we readers of the Order already knew what was coming, but the readers of the time needed to have a few secrets kept!

3 stars. Recommended listening for this story: have to go with a classic of the highest order here: "Revolution" by the Beatles.

  I kind of wish we'd gotten more of Harry in the lead up to this. I mean, the guy's battling a drug addiction and dealing with the sudden death of his father, would have been nice if any of his friends actually spared him a second thought.
