The divide between Spider-Man and The Wraith continues to be defined in this issue, they’ve been drifting since issue one with Yuri becoming more and more lost in her skewed pursuit of justice. It doesn’t help her that Mr Negative has put two and two together and came up with Wraith, uncovering Yuri’s alter ego and swiftly using that to manipulate the gang war for his own benefit. There’s another really cool encounter here with The Ringmaster and his Circus of Crime which is wonderfully entertaining and also serves to reveal the primary antagonist of this mini, setting the duo up for a big confrontation in the final issue and giving Yuri a chance for sorely needed redemption.
