Summary

In this self-contained one-shot, indie legend Peter Bagge (Hate) offers his own unique spin on everyones favorite web-spinner! THE STORY: Shortly after he was bitten by a radioactive spider that gave him his strange powers, Peter Parker failed to stop a burglar fleeing from police. When that man went on to murder Peters beloved Uncle Ben, Peter took it upon himself to atone for his sin of inaction, adopting a mantra instilled in him by his Uncle: With great power must also come great responsibility. But what if Uncle Ben wasnt all he was cracked up to be? What if he was nothing more than a lout and a con artist? What road might Peter travel if his life had been guided by a different mantra: Look out for number one?
