Web of Spider-Man #4
Issue(s): Web of Spider-Man #4
It also uses some cool lighting effects.
The rest of this issue is essentially set-up, and covers old ground, but it's nicely done. Doctor Octopus is having another nervous breakdown at the hospital, and his psychological trauma unconsciously summons his arms. The police, armed with battle armor and SHIELD-issued guns, are unable to stop the tentacles' approach.
Spidey is unable to stop them from carrying Octavius away as well.
When he regains his senses, Doc Ock realizes he's faced with a choice. He can return to the hospital, continue to get treatment, and work to regain the respect that he got from Mr. Fantastic for his science abilities. Or he can embrace his super-villain status. While a reformed Doctor Octopus would have been interesting, i guess the decision was inevitable.
Also in this issue, we're reminded that Spider-Man can't drive.
There's been an ongoing subplot about J. Jonah Jameson starting up a new project. It's revealed here that he's reviving Now Magazine.
A fun story and an improvement over the Louise Simonson issues.

"Never drove a truck before..." He drove a semi into Juggernaut...seems like something he would remember!
