The Rundown: While Miles tries to repair his personal relationships, a growing threat goes after the people he cares about.

After taking on Scorpion and barely surviving, Miles gets a visit from Tiana who wants to know what it going on with him. After telling her what he can, he decides to break out from his punishment and hits the skies as Spider-Man. A move that will bring him face to face with Misty Knight who is investigating the theft of some dangerous tech. After convincing her to let him tag along, he still finds it hard to escape the consequences of his recent actions and his friends, even Ganke are dealing with them as well.

As Miles and Misty find themselves tracking some potential thieves, their investigation is interrupted by Scorpion who returns with some upgrades. At the same time, Tiana finds herself squaring off against the young woman who has vowed to destroy Miles and everyone he cares about.

The Story: I continue to enjoy the mystery in this arc as well as the personal drama with Miles. Ziglar does a good job of balancing the interpersonal drama with humor along with some great moments between Miles and Misty. There is a fun and fast pace to the story and I like the immediacy of the action within it. I look forward to seeing what happens next and how close this new villain will get to the people Miles loves.

The Art: Vicentini delivers some blistering action throughout the issue. There are some great visual moments with the characters themselves, but the initial Miles/Misty confrontation, the Scorpion fight and the Tiana confrontation are visually stunning.
