    Public Scrutiny, Private Torment

    This review refers to Ultimate Spider-Man vol. 5 paperback edition: Public Scrutiny While the previous four volumes of Ultimate Spider-Man have dealt with Peter's private life in the background, and a big league bad guy (or two) in the foreground, this volume is almost exclusively about Peter Parker's home life, his social life, and his love life. As if his career as Spider-Man isn't filled with enough people that hate him, someone else is posing as Spider-Man and robbing people. It's actually much worse than it appears at first, when yet another person close to Peter is killed, this time by the Spider-Man impostor. His love life is also complicated more, here. With Gwen Stacy in need of comfort, she runs to Peter and his Aunt May for comfort. How much of Gwen wanting to be with Peter is friendship and how much is romance isn't revealed, but it does bend MJ to the breaking point. While I did enjoy MJ and Peter's close relationship from the off, this tension and disharmony is more in keeping with the regular Spider-Man continuity, at least in the beginning. The writing and art are perfect. Bendis and Bagley are a great duo, who work very well together. This fan girl is wishing them many happy years of collaboration. Public Scrutiny reprints Ultimate Spider-Man #28-32 and is a fine addition to any Spider-Man collection. Highly recommended!

    Great Series

    This is a great book just like all the others it's nice to actually see a story develope instead of the nonstop brainless fighting seen in many comics. I've been an S-Man fan since i was a kid and the ultimate universe of makes me love the character even more. Any Spider-Man fan young or old will not be disapointed with this series.
