It’s kind of funny…Ock-Spidey has, for me anyways, been more appealing in books where the character teams with the rest of the Marvel U. than in his own title. Cross this opinion with the return of one of Marvel’s cult-hit-heroes and you have a book that could very well reek of awesomeness or put you to sleep. Check out the Major Spoilers review of Avenging Spider-Man #19…
In today’s work-a-day world, it can be all to easy to forget that Spider-Man is more than just a crime fighter. He’s more than just a weirdo swinging through New York in his PJ’s.
