SPOILERS! I guess I'm pretty much going to call this the mopey volume. There are no villains for Spider-Man to fight and everybody pretty much mopes around. The first story has nothing to do with the running plot but is a soppy 9/11 piece, you can just here the Star Spangled Banner playing in the background. But it was fun to see members of the X-Men, The Avengers and the Fantastic Four helping out with the rescue operation. Then the story picks up again and Aunt May does a lot of moping around because she's found out about Peter really being Spider-Man. Then Peter mopes around because he's found one of his students is homeless and lives with a bunch of other homeless children and finally we get to end with Mary Jane moping around because even though her new life is glamourous she is unhappy. The one good thing about this issue is that is does set up the various storylines for the next volume. I certainly hope we get some Super-Hero action in the next volume. ( )

A particularly well-done series of stories from the "Amazing Spider-Man" line, the first one is a wrenchingly narrated look at the reactions of Spider-Man and other Marvel heroes - and villains - as they help with the aftermath of the World Trade Center disaster of 9/11. The second story is a fine one about Peter Parker's helpless feelings as he tries to help a young student who has lost her home. The main draw of this book, however, is the talk that Aunt May has with Peter, as she has finally discovered after all these years that her fragile and beloved nephew is Spider-Man. A revealing, sweetly humorous and compelling look at both characters, and one which rings bittersweet and true. Good artwork, too. The final wordless story has some nice touches, but seems a bit muddled. ( )
