    Huge fan of Kesel… but, geez, MARVEL APES??? This book is as close as I come to supporting that project.

    Darned shame Kurt Schaffenberger isn’t still around to pencil MR. & MRS. SPIDER-MAN, knowhutahmean?

    Not priced at $8? That’s great!! Now if only this wasn’t about a storyline I despise, I would gladly buy a copy.
