Spider-Man 2099 011

This was a strong issue and the content was interesting. The dramatic cliffhanger shows a lot of promise - which is good since the Maestro arc also started out strong but then petered out(no pun intended). The art could use more oomph though as it is just average here - dulled by the coloring choices and lacking backgrounds.

The return of The Spot was a bit weird but on the plus side it brought a guest shot by Spider-man 2015. The return of Scorpion -to possibly a supporting cast status- was welcome, as was the continuity nod to ASM with the prison plans plotline.

The dialogue was very good. LOVED that one of the non-churchgoing superhumans finally come clean with their continually catchphrase calling upon GOD without faithful sincerity and debateable weakness. It usually makes for a pet peeve but this panel was a joy to read:
OMG! \:\)

It's interesting to see Miguel try to piece together how history is changed to alter his future. And it's fun to see how he (ironically? hypocritically?) changes history with his actions to cure Tempest's cancer. Their initial dialgue and their final interaction were both equally fun reads.

I miss Dad and Dan.

I liked it too. Specific points to talk about:

1) How could Maestro be 200 years old, if he exists in the year 2099?

2) S-Man using the cancer-cure-spray on Tempest: When he got that cure it 2099 during SV, I originally thought that it was something to cure the Inheritors of their spider-totem hunger, as I didn't see S-Man wanting to return to the present. Glad to see he came back, and was going to come back, to cure her.

3) S-Man's line: "If the Goblin swings by, tell her I couldn't wait.": Is this a reference to Goblin 2099, whom PAD originally wanted to be Father Jennifer from Vol. 1? Perhaps in this new Earth-928 (before being wiped) actually had that within it, and Raab's messing with it to make the character really Gabe undone?

4) The private talk on the building with him and Spidey: When they were leading us into this scene, I was hoping we'd finally get a masks-off scene between the two. This was still ok, though. I still like that they're buds.

5) Tempest turning into that creature: Wasn't expecting that. I'd already seen the #12 cover, but didn't think it'd turn out to actually be her. Why would the spray S-Man used do that?

6) The "To Be Concluded!" part: I was hoping that there's be a Vol. 2 #13 after the Secret Wars 2099 LS, but maybe not? Wish I knew for sure.

I agree about the 2nd Future Imperfect story being setup as something big, but turned out to be disappointing. That's my only major gripe with this series.

I should have a full review put up tonight or tomorrow concerning this issue on the 80's/90's board.

Question I looked up on google: Will Ash Vs. Evil Dead be continued as a cartoon?

"In an interview with Collider during San Diego Comic-Con, genre entertainment icon Bruce Campbell confirmed that the powers that be are in conversation to continue his character's demon-busting adventures in a new animated series version of Ash vs. Evil Dead. 'You can do the future a lot easier in animation.'"
