STORY: The writing in both these stories is very good, whether your a seasoned spiderman reader or never picked up a comic book you could understand what is going on here. Clearly, these books are geared more towards younger readers though, which comes out in the writing it is a bit watered down as far as the story goes but given that it is a short story and geared towards younger audience it can be forgiven...
