Spiderman: Blue
I picked up this book the other day when I was browsing and was totally taken aback by the concept but then I guess I have always been a big softy at heart. For anyone who isn't aware Spiderman: Blue is a Jeph Loeb written tale, in which Spidey tries to explain how things ended up the way they did between him and Gwen Stacey and MJ. There is a real innocence in the writing which harks back to the original issues where Peter first met Gwen and MJ. The artwork by Tim sale only aids in drawing you in to the whole story, reminiscent of artwork of those early stories without being primitive.

I don't mind admitting that I really felt for Peter as he poured out his heart in the form of a spoken letter to Gwen. The last time I was moved in the same way by a book would have been Daredevil: Yellow, strangely enough also by Loeb and Sale and also a book in a similar mold.

If you haven't read this book yet, pick it up. I think Peter says it best. "It's about remembering someone so important to me I was going to spend the rest of my life with her. I didn't know that meant she would only get to spend the rest of her life with me."
