Oops, sorry, that’s the rest of Marvel’s solicits . . . Actually, in this issue, Red-Headed Stranger begins just after the surprising events of Amazing Spider-Man #600, with Pete’s love life taking a turn for the worse just as his old flame Mary Jane returns to New York City. (FINALLY!! Sheesh. What took ’em so long?!)
We’ve been passing a copy of Amazing Spider-Man #601 around the office and we’re here to tell you that it’s one hell of an issue. Don’t take our word for it, check out the First Look and decide for yourself.
Longtime Spider-Man fans will love it because Mark Waid is giving us exactly what we want from a Spider-Man comic. You get everything: J.J. calling Spider-Man a menace, Peter having personal problems, missed opportunities, petty theft . . . (sigh) we’re glad you’re back, Mary Jane.
