One - this is probably one of the consistently best-looking comics out there right now from Marvel.

Two - with Peter Parker coming back from after the whole "Death of Spider-Man" arc it seemed like it might've been done in a rather shit way, since his death was so poignant and well done, but I'm LOVING the arc that this is following. I also keep trying to get into the 616 Spider-Man, but to me, it always feels vastly less interesting (though Spider-Verse is ok so far).

Oh good, I was going to ask if there should be separate Spider-Man threads. :monster:

I was wondering if they only reason they brought Peter back was because of Spider-Verse, but will this series really join with it that much? I know Miles is making a tiny cameo.

But what I really want to know is
did Norman Osborn really kill JJJ????

That was like, whoa shit...

Seriously. The end of the one issue where
JJJ shoots him had my jaw on the floor, and then they just 1upped it with Norman grabbing him by the face the next issue immolating him alive while mentioning that he's functionally immortal.

Also, every single panel with
Miles kicking the shit out of Osborn is just SO fucking amazingly well drawn. It's one of the few comics I just go back and look at all the time.

This week was a really awesome wrap-up of the story with Miles' dad. It was a nice little break from things and gives him a bit of a break after all the shit they've been through.

Today's issue is a fan with a big pile of shit headed directly towards it in the best way possible, and containing fantastic dialogue. This is all the reasons I love this comic.

HOLY SHIT, HOW IS THIS GOING TO CONCLUDE NEXT ISSUE!?!?


Also, Ganke is even more of the lovable, relatable nerd than ever.

I just read #11 the other day. I was thinking about putting this title on my pull list but I guess I won't really need to, huh? :monster:

Let's just saw that there's something else at play here that was hinted at with Normal Osborne, and hasn't been fully revealed yet, and holy moses I'm so damn excited to see what it means.

I have ONE question:

Since Pete is now allowed to be happy and successful, Does Young May Parker exist?

If yes, my blood feud with the Spider books may finally be at an end.

Well.... I think that this's more relevant to the OTHER Spider-man thread, buuuut that answer is complicated.

Being as I don't read Peter Parker's comics, the one thing I can tell you is that Mayday Parker is a regular in Web-Warriors series, but she's not from the Primary Marvel Universe.

So, no, young May Parker's de-existing is still a giant fucking memory hole that Marvel refuses to address, got it.

Well, being as the entire All-New All-Different's omni/multi/universe was recreated from essentially from scratch at the end of Secret Wars, it's not even clear that she deexisted in the current primary reality at all if that's what you're on about. The 616 Marvel Universe is dead and gone. Because that whole reaIity was obliterated, I don't even think there's anything to address, especially since she's a regular character elsewhere.

The current Mayday is still her MC2 self, yes? Then at least that continuity addressed her being found after her kidnapping, but it still leaves 20 years of her being missing in 616, and later writers acting as if she'd never been born (Even before they explicitly made it so she couldn't have been, I mean).
Basically, just a few lines from someone like Strange talking about the continuity that was- because people remember it- and how it had suffered hiccups to a la the vanishing May would go a long way towards making me trust the Spidey writers not to pull utter BS any more.

Speaking of Web-Warriors, at the end of this week's comic they asked if there're any Spideys that people want to see in a big throw down (no promises on if they survive), so I wrote in that I wanted to see Spider-Punk & SP//dr one last time, since I missed them from Spider-Verse, so here's to hoping!!

Spider-Punk is happening for sure in #7, there's gonna be a big robot in #8, and they're apparently making tons of efforts to attempt to bring in SP//dr into the team but it looks like they haven't got it set in stone yet.

Jeezdamn, the new kids' comics continues to be the best part about CWII. This latest issue was a hell of a gut punch, and that last page was rough in a whole different way.

Correct me if I'm wrong but after Secret Wars shouldn't there only be
one Miles? Or am I just not understanding how this all works?
