Dark Reign: Mister Negative #1-3:
The origin of Mister Negative works pretty well, although there are some plot holes in the Betty Brant arc. For a Dark Reign tie-in, Spidey has a fairly big role, and I like the clash between Negative's forces and the Hood.
Web of Spider-Man (2009) #1-7:
There was a formula to the first seven issues, with a villain spotlight, a Spider-Girl chapter and another story in every issue. Spider-Girl, a series with a decade of history, was probably not the right choice for this book. I didn't find those chapters particularly interesting. There is some stuff to recommend, even if some of the stories are repetitive, dealing with stuff we've seen before (Ben Reilly decides to be a hero! Aunt May and Jonah Sr get randy! Adrian Toomes gets his revenge !) I'm not sure what grade to give this, since the cover price wasn't bad and the material is probably available pretty cheap.
Amazing Spider-Man #630-633
The Lizard story is great, and likely the highlight of the Gauntlet era. But this also likely has the best Peter Parker plot of the Brand New Day run, as he tries to find someone to communicate with after a break-up and a tragedy.
