Spider-Man Makes an Effort

The recent Spider-Man main titles are showing a little promise. Even though the Eight Day crossover so rudely interrupted the steady sub-plot development, it's still very pleasing to see some nice stories, and a consistent effort put into the continuing themes of Senator Ward, Tricorp, MJ Stalker, MJ/Peter dishonesty, Jill/Peter chemistry. It's also nice to see Aunt May just tucked in the background (although it makes you wonder why the heck they bought her back at all). Steady as she goes, Mr Mackie, and maybe you'll pull it back from the brink.
