In 2004 Marvel released a Spider-Man title under the 'Marvel Knights' imprint. The basic idea was to make a more "hard PG-13" Spider-Man title with Mark Millar and Terry Dodson delivering a 12 issue arc in three parts. There's no official title for the whole thing but it's been called "Shush" by the fans given the obvious similarities to 'Hush' that was running around the same time; an "epic" about a mystery villain causing havoc that happens to involve the majority of the hero's rogue gallery.
FWIW, while both are a lot of 'style over substance', I enjoyed "Shush" a lot more. You may think differently.

2. Threatening her at gunpoint.
3. Kidnapping Peter.

1. This issue of "Spider-Man's Tangled Web" features one of the best parts of any comic-verse. The villain bar. I love scenes of villains just hanging out, grousing about heroes, comparing notes and relaxing. Which is why I included a few scans of just that.
2. This story is an example of the fact that Norman Osborn doesn't need a costume, glider or control of an international martial agency to be one of the scariest motherfuckers on the planet.
