CBR Review: What If? Spider-Man Back in Black #1

I recently reviewed What If? Spider-Man Back in Black (godawful title for a comic, by the way) for CBR and, in the process, wrote the following: "What comes through in this issue is intelligence and thought as Grant considered exactly how Peter Parker really would react to an event like this. Not how he would have to act to fit the constraints of the genre and editorial mandate, but how he would act. Some may disagree with Grant’s conclusions, but the final pages demonstrate that he thought everything through, including Parker’s obsession with responsibility. While revenge may drive the character here, he isn’t stupid and he doesn’t expect to walk away if he gets it."
