In the aftermath of the Secret Wars a handful of characters returned home somehow changed. Either alliances were switched, break ups occurred, or mental blocks removed; but no one came out of this ordeal with more to worry about than Spider-Man. In fact, he received such a raw deal that the events would change his life forever. The Saga of the Alien Costume is an important chapter in the Spider-Man mythos, and is also regarded as a Marvel Milestone. For many people I know, it ranks somewhere at the top amongst the Death of Gwen Stacy and Spider-Man's Origin. Originally written by Tom DeFalco and Roger Stern, this trade paperback collects The Amazing Spider-Man issues 252 - 259.
Once the story gets past the slow start and filler moments, it begins to find some footing and juggle various sub plots, which are either tied up by the end of this book or continue later on to spawn new feuds. Spider-Man comes to blows with the Rose when he interferes in his criminal operations. This forces Rose to hire Puma, a formidable assassin with incredible tracking abilities who's powers have a mystical origin. He's able to track Spider-Man throughout the city, and during this battle Spider-Man learns more about his costume.Read more ›
