The Darkest Hours - Jim Butcher

This is pretty good, in fact, I like it more than the couple of Dresden files books out there.

After encountering the Rhino, Spidey learns that Morlun wasn't the only one of his kind, and there are three more of them coming. Luckily, he has help. The Black Cat is around, and doesn't want the Spider eaten, and Doctor Strange offers some sneaky help that isn't help, and a nice sandiwch thanks to Wong.

When the Rhino's employers, the Ancients, turn on him, and Spidey saves his grey leathery hide, he agrees to help the pair of heroes with their plan.

I have actually read a trade recently of Spider-Man fighting the Morlun guy, so perhaps that was fortuitous, as I haven't read much of him for a long time, but this book is definitely enjoyable, wry, amusing, action packed, altruistic, and other stuff.

4 out of 5
