Was 'soured' too. (So much for the boycott break.) Typed these reactions simultaneously...
Amazing Spider-Man #645
Fine. A poster for a cover works if it works like here http://www.comicartcommunity.com/gallery/details.php?image_id=39454 but as the main one, whats the thwippin' point?
PPage. Okay. But whats with the sidebar bits here? Norman up for transfer? WTH?! And the 2 nods to Shadowland...argh... it seems to imply Shadowland is simultaneously when it makes more sense to be before or after this arc. Unfortunately it is too vague and the generic Hell's Kitchen cameo panel completely minimizes this effort to push this Event. (Its a shame 'cuz Spidey has some neato webaction this week in #4!)
Does leaving trade to make up for taking (dangerous) chemicals, for webbing, from the city really cut it in a court of law? Swiping a Daily Bugle or trenchcoat is one thing but beyond that seeems more... questionable. And THIS ,one-sided... barterin, is Spidey's best option?!
Sheesh, apparently JJJ and Steve cant afford to allot some inhibitor collars to every precinct.
Sheesh, Spidey can round up a half dozen metas at the drop of hat when he has a rage on but is hardly that efficient since The Raft breakout waaay back in NA1.
Good to see Screwball used. Hey, when did Loser Looter return? Throwing in a bunch of new hired help seems a (unnecessary) forced Rogue cameo for the sake of a cameo now that the kidnap is called off.
HOW ELSE AM I GOING TO OBTAIN A SAMPLE OF GOBLIN/MENACE CHEMISTRY? Uh, have you tried planning on working with the Goblin & Menace first?
A mopey Menace... aww, boo hoo. A jokey MJ... to cover for the lack of Spidey ones. A stupid Carlie... too harsh to say about her? An odd Shelly... guarding a panic room like he could actually stop something. A non-whispering, super-strong, glider-proof, showing for Tombstone... disliked how that all played out.
Vermin, right? Electro surprisingly easily, right? Blackwing, right? Hard to believe, in hindsight, maybe it was better not to show how a raging Spider-man captured them behind the scenes after seeing how ludicrous his rip a warehouse in half strategy to catch the next 5 was. Ludicrous and wreckless at the wharf - and all this rage over losing this particular baby? It did feel weak; maybe theres some residual frustration over all the dumb things he has done since CW.
Chameleon is sooo lucky he decided to let up. (For some reason that stopped the story flow.)
Lets see whats the cliffhanger tease now... ooooh no! C'mon. Not him too! Its another forced Rogue cameo for the sake of a cameo. *sigh* Silliness. Now, de-aging with time travel backwards may be silly but the backup was intended as silly.
Dont forget to comment on Luke, Danny, and Shang Chi's showing, in Shadowland over at the H4HMB...
I miss Dan.
