CBR Review: Spider-Man: Fever #3

I recently reviewed Spider-Man: Fever #3 for CBR and, in the process, wrote the following sentences: "McCarthy’s sense of humor comes through strongly in this issue with some funny jokes about a magic wand saving the day, Dr. Strange confused over the magical enchantment 'Harrah-Harrah!' needing to be said backwards to break a spell despite it being a palindrome, or Spider-Man’s confusion at what happened when he finally wakes up. Despite the stakes, he keeps thing light at the right moments to remind us that this is just a fun adventure story. There’s a genuine feeling of old school superheroics here, a sense of heightened emotions of all kind, not just the dark ones. If the danger is big, so must the laughs!"
