Unintended Consequences: The Amazing Spider Man by J. Michael Straczynski, John Romita Jr.

Fiction. Graphic Novel. Paperback from Marvel Graphic Novels. First published as AMAZING SPIDER-MAN VOL II #51-56. On loan from the Windsor Library.

PJ just read this one, and said I should read it as well. It was actually a pretty good book. I'll have to say in general I rather like Peter Parker and Spider-man. Seems like he's at least trying to do the right things for the right reasons.

Publisher's Summary:
As Peter and his estranged wife Mary Jane Watson continue to struggle with their recent reconciliation, Peter's wall-crawling alter ego faces a new superhuman threat. A bizarre gamma-powered creature emerges seeking revenge, but what is its connection with the infamous Vegas Thirteen - a group of mob bosses murdered forty-six years ago - and the crime lord Morris Forelli? Spider-man is drawn into a web of deceit and betrayal as he calls on all his astounding abilities in order to save Forelli and his unsuspecting daughter ... as well as saving himself!

In addition, Peter must deal with the unintended consequences of his actions as Spider-man and their affect on the lives of the families of those he has brought to justice.
