I enjoyed this collection quite a lot, because it focused more on teenage-related problems, which seemed a lot easier to deal with than what poor Peter's had to deal with lately. Johnny Storm from the Fantastic Four is back, trying to have a bit of a life and not entirely understanding some of the social problems at hand like why he can't do anything that will let people discover he's Spider-Man. Of course, one of his friends has already figured it out and wants to ask Peter about Kitty, because they dated, but that would mean he has to let on that he's figured it out. And then there's their friend, Liz, who's coming into her mutant powers, which is startling and scary, but even more-so because she hates mutants and doesn't want to be one. To complicate things, Magneto shows up. Yeah, just typical teenage problems. heehee I really liked the balance between dealing with powers and trying to be a normal teenager. The outing at the beach was especially fun. ( )

This one seems like kind of a throw-away issue. I didn't like the art as much as usual, and mostly it's just about minor interpersonal conflicts. I am curious what happens with Liz Allen, if anything further does happen with her character, but there wasn't much by way of interesting development here for the main players. ( )

So much better than Vol. 19. I'm still not a fan of Stuart Immonen's art, but the story has definitely picked up again.

I really like how Peter's life keeps going on. People change, stories happen, but in the end, life is still life and Peter is still Spiderman and life just goes on. No needless drama or midlife crises. ( )
