    DAN SLOTT HITS A HOME RUN

    Collecting ASM 652-657 & 654.1
    The Spider Slayers are back, only they aren't just aiming for Spiderman. Jonah Jameson and his family is in trouble, and Spiderman is trapped on a shuttle by one of his most lethal foes. However will he be able to save all of the people by himself?
    After the death of a loved one, he thinks about all the people he lets down. As a villian named Massacare assasinates a building of people, Spidey makes a vow, "No one dies."
    Spiderman decides to visit the Fanastic Four to disscuss the death of The Human Torch. Spidey remembers all his adventures with Johnny and is suprised after seeing a holocaust Johnny made for him.
    Slott preveils in a way no one writer ever has. He understands Spiderman, and when his friend dies, he treats it how it should be. Casseli's art reallt jumps off the page. Martin's art brings emotion to the comic. This is Slott's best work yet.

    This collection was truly a microcosm of comic books. We are given what can be great, thoughtful, and intelligent. And we can also be given what is sub-par, thoughtless, and pointless. All of the business with the “new” Spider Slayers screams 90s. Its been before and better. The art and story for that part were not what Spider-Man should be, which is the best. What happened in those moments lead to what was great and that was how Peter deals with loss. Not just Peter but supporting characters as well. Slott, while perfectly suited for Spidey’s humorous side, does an amazing job of showing the depths of characters that aren’t always seen. Martin’s art is unbelievable. The extra “Point One” issue was really good and an interesting take on some new twists to some old favorites. Overall the book was hit and miss but the hits and home runs and the misses are far off the mark.
