This topic is for the discussion of the Spiderman series, "Back in Black", which premiered yesterday with issue 539 I believe. I haven't read it yet but I did see some images of Peter's counter-attack against the sniper, and all I can say is that they're respect-thread worthy.
I was reading a revew on IGN of the first issue- they gave it a "must read" btw- and I agree when they say that Peter is rarely shown cutting loose with his full potential, but when we do see it, we remember just how powerful the wall-crawler can be.
I read the issue and its pretty good. I dont mind a darker Spidey, at least for a little while. The only problem I have with the issue is this: (please log in to view the image)
Are we led to believe that his black costume has been on that building all this years, hold together by his webbing? The same webbing that dissolves in an hour?
I would've liked a better explanation where he had the suit, a box in the basement wouldve done fine to me.

I just read the issue myself, and I thought it was awesome. Other than Bendis, JMS if the only writer I can think of to actually show Peter cut completely loose, and I think this is as mad as we're ever going to see him. I loved the raw anger of the issue, and the warehouse fight was handled well, brutal, fast, and to the point- especially the hand-breaking incident.
The final page is a masterpiece, and I genuinely hope Peter keeps his word of "This time, I'm going to kill them." Not that I'm a death mongerer or anything, but I think it would at a lot of depth- more so than there already is for Peter- to have killed someone.
he's already killed someone. Some crazy lady threw herself in front of one his punches.
peter is going to confront kingpin and go on this long rant about how pissed he is and then decide at the end on how he's not going to stoop down to his level or do something that may would hate him see him do....then off to a a few more months of RAWR PETER ANGRY.
*spoilers i guess* (cus i'm to lazy to type the tag)
1)he thru a minivan/jeep at a building really not caring who was there, just knowing there was someone who hurt may
2)bloodied up some guys...and may have killed one, not sure.
3)webbed up some cop, covering most of his upperbody which=no breathing
I'll see if he did any more reckless stuff like that, but he pretty much is disregarding anyone's life who get's in his way
