This was cool, but I was actually hoping for more interaction between General Ross and JJJ. the Red Hulk was cool in this though.
 
I love it when a plan comes together in the Multiverse!

This issue was a lot more polished than #1. Then again he didn't draw as much stuff in this one... I haven't Spidy (minus ultimate) since Civil War so I'm glad this is such a fun book.

This one's off to a nice start. Joe Mad will never be my favorite artist, but he's good at drawing monsters, and I like his rendition of the Mole Man.

Wells' script is sharp. I loved Rulk mouthing off to the bad guys.

And #3 wrapped this first arc up well. This was my first experience, believe it or not, with Joe Mad's art, and frankly I'd give it mixed reviews. Wells' script is worth the price of admission, though - clever, brisk, and slightly subversive. I dug the twist of Rulk basically having nothing to do with the resolution of the story.

Wells' JJJ is the highlight, though.

I liked Zeb's treatment of the Avengers in here as well as the chemistry between Red Hulk and Spider-Man. The Webhead comes across as the veteran crimefighter that he should be rather than as a goofy super-hero as he sometimes is written.

Joe doesn't use an inker for this arc. I'm wondering if that's why his art seems different than his last turn with Marvel.

I think he could use an inker with a fairly thin line. The art in this arc had a kind of washed-out look that wasn't my favorite. He did a nice job drawing all the mole people and monsters, though - you can tell Wells put the script together with him in mind.
