X-Men/Spider-Man #2 Review

Recently reviewed by me at CBR: X-Men/Spider-Man #2, about which I write the following sentences: "If this comic was nothing more than Alberti pin-ups, I'd probably still enthusiastically recommend it, but the story (as purposely formulaic as it is) is pretty good too. Each issue jumps to a different moment in the lives of these characters, and Mr. Sinister -- working behind the scenes (since the 1960s, by the looks of things, although it's obviously not meant to be 40 years ago in comic book continuity) -- is the thread that weaves each issue together. Gage does a nice job with the characterizations here. He doesn't give himself much to work with, as it's mostly just a big fight scene, but since the plot allows Alberti a chance to show his stuff, it's difficult to fault the comic for having too much action."
