Issue Review
 
RikerDonegal
   June 14, 2017
Very enjoyable balance of private life and action.

In this issue we spent some quality time with Peter Parker and his supporting cast. His new job is working out better and better, but there are stresses at college. The regular characters in this series are diverse and interesting.

We also spend some time with two villains: one is kept a mystery to us, while the other is the anti-hero Morbius.

It is Morbius who provides the battle at the end. A battle that ends with a genuine surprise.

8/10

  Steve Hopkins in whiteface.
What is Chip Martin supposed to be dressed as?
And nobody's dressed as a super-hero at a costume party? I find that hard to believe.

  -Surely it wasn't that simple for Morbius...

  Sal Buscema has a strange sense of humour. There is no way that the position of the gun at the bottom of page 23 is accidental! In fact, it appears that the letterer must have been laughing so hard at Sal's little joke that she got the speech bubbles the wrong way around!

  Chip's subconscious is levitating the gun I dropped to compensate for his careening inadequacy!

That was an awfully anticlimactic cure for a condition that tortured Morbius across dozens of issues, but don't worry, I doubt it'll stick for too long.

  Gee, whodathunk that all Morris needed to cure himself was a small sampling of radioactive blood plus 500,000 volts of electricity while being grounded on a balcony belonging to a house worth more than all of Canada's supply of cheeze-its that belongs to a senator that obviously conducted wicked science experiments on his son in hopes of turning him into the next Fred Flintstone? Wait, dafuq did I just say?
