I found this arc to be pretty low key, and actually quite fun. I enjoy these downbeat stories from time to time.
The end of the issue had me asking the question though...since when did PP start getting pictures published by the Bugle again? Isn't he still disgraced and all that, from OMD essentially turning him into a floozy and a degenerate until Big Time?
Check the headline. The photo was submitted by someone else, which implies Peter/the DB used an alias, or just delivered the photo directly as Spider-Man.
