A series about fashion models? Is it just me or does it seem like the Hobgoblin was tailor-made to be the villain?

I expect this will be following up on that little story that appeared in an issue of Spider-Man Family, where Mary Jane and friends battled the Enchantress. It was a fun story, so I think I'll give this a shot.

Is it me or have Marvel lost their minds with this cheap stunt? A 4 issue mini series? At 4 bucks a pop?! So, what, all the fans that miss MJ will buy this? Pass. Definite pass. In fact, I'll go one further. This is almost an insult.

Honestly I was more bothered that Millie would have to be a billion years old (in model years anyway) by now.

I think they would have been better off keeping those stories for Spider-Man Family. I really enjoyed it but I don't think it is worth having its own limited series, IMO.

It's not a Mary Jane comic. She's just one member of the ensemble cast.
