This probably my favorite issue so far. It had some really interesting panel lay outs, especially in the scene where he rescued the little girl locked in the bathroom, and the expressions on people's faces were really emotive. But the real kicker was the end, that blew me away.
It was such a simple " Our hero is stuck in a death trap, will he make it out alive!? Tune in next week to find out!" kind of moment but it fit the tone of the book so well that it came off feeling authentic rather than cliched.
Another thing worth mentioning, when I went to the shop this afternoon to pick up my books I went not realizing both this and the Shadow were being released today, and so I did not bring enough cash to get both. Stuck with the choice of which to buy during this trip I went with the Spider, and I think that's going to end up happening every time now. I hadn't previously thought about dropping one book in favor of the other but when I made the choice today with out any waffling what so ever it seemed like the writing was on the wall. I'll probably end up buying the Shadow some time later this week as there are a few other items I want to pick up but it may be my last unless it really wows me.
