New Comics Wednesday (continued...)

See, I told you my new-comics-buying was spotty.  I got two more today: Amazing Spider-Man #525 & Betty #151.  I get Betty every month; it's kind of the same thing all the time, but Betty Cooper is a nice character to hang around with.  I bought the Amazing Spider-Man because it was written by one of my favorite comics writers, Peter David.  David just launched a new Spider-Man comic (Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man), and as a promotional stunt, he is writing all three Spider-Man titles this month.  It shows some great characterization of Peter Parker and Aunt May, but I'm not sure the new villian (The Tracer) was that interesting.
