drive-by readings: Amazing Spider-Man #603

The Amazing Spider-Man #603 (Marvel)
"Red-Headed Stranger: Deconstructing Peter"
Fred Van Lente
Robert Atkins
Victor Olazaba
Jeromy Cox
Joe Caramagna
Stephane Roux (cover)
Mike Mayhew (variant cover)
you know, this would have worked a wee bit better without the opening statement, giving away what could've been a great surprise for newbie readers, and perhaps a great delight to longtime ones, as they would figure it out along the way (assuming they didn't read the internet or the "next issue" blurb from #602. anyway, it was enjoyable opener for a long term ... what? this story concludes next issue? what the hell! think of the possibilities! can we not have JJJ replaced? or Osborn! it could a year's worth of issues!
