The Goblin Legacy one-shot was basically a reprint of the classic Amazing Spider-Man story in which the Green Goblin and Spider-Man discovered each other's identities in #39-40. What makes this one different is that the story was completely recolored. 

For comparision, the final page of #39 as it originally appeared...

...and the recolored version...

Thoughts? Is it an improvement, or does it ruin the classic story?

Also, there was a wraparound story in which Ms. Hand, Norman Osborn's Deputy Director at H.A.M.M.E.R. interviews Peter Parker about what he knows about Norman (given that he's friends with Harry.) Afterwards...

Hmmm...does this mean Norman's going to remember that Peter Parker is Spider-Man?

For contrast, the version from the John Romita Visionaries trade.

(i assure you it looks worse on paper, just my scanner's poor quality somehow makes the colors blend a lot better)

Oh, not at all. My scanner just isn't good enough to show how bad an airbrushing job they did. (Seriously! Airbrushing! Look a little closer at the shading and you might be able to see it, but the dot matrix my scanner's throwing in is really playing it down.)

I don't like the airbrushing effects either (but then, from this scan, I can't tell the extent of just how bad the airbrushing is), but I certainly favor this color over the oversaturation of the one above. It looks to me like a cleaner version of the original, which is what I'd hope to see from a reprinted comic.
