By the middle of next week, all the talk here presumably will be about the big news of ASM #698 so, before we get to that, let's rate what I considered to be one of the strongest arcs of Slott's run on ASM---Danger Zone!
I personally give it a solid "A"; I thought it was every bit as good as other high-water marks like the opening "Big Time" arc and "No Turning Back" even if it didn't quite reach the heights of the Marla Jameson funeral issue (though a good deal of credit for that issue goes to Marcos Martin) and "Spider-Island". Still, this was pretty great: the spider-sense overload had never been done before and added a great bit of tension to the story and Slott pulled one of his great "fake-out" moments with PhilGoblin capturing Pete and making us think he had figured out his ID, albeit briefly, at the end of Chapter 1. The return of Roddy was masterful as was the depiction of Kingpin and he continued to set the stage for #700 with the return of Harry Osborn and the escape(?) of Norman. Peter was written perfectly and I really have grown to like Max Modell as a character; I also thought Camuncoli's art was terrific.
So....what do the rest of you think?
