September 22, 2013 - An interesting bridge
Quantm & Woody are much more interesting.
This one has heart.
Much of the start of the comic involves the dream sequence of Quantum - being knocked out - developing his attack on the villain and stopping him. While it's really only in his mind, it's great to see where he wants to be in the future - and his image.
I start getting the feeling that Woody is n't the only one out of touch with reality here. That he is a somewhat manic individual.
The second half - nice to see the "Bat" man again - and more on him in a few issues...
But when the first real mission starts, and the two are after the baby - Quantum gets his first success.
And really starts to think of himself as his new alter ego. This comic is much lower on the outrageous humor - and stronger on the characters. Excellent read.
It builds on what was left behind.
I get the feeling that the writers were really trying to build out more of the characters behind many of the other characters in Spidey's life. Captain Stacy in this issue takes the central part of the stage, and that's one of the most interesting sections of the book. He bills and creates himself as a real moral center in the comic - establishing two sides here. Both the just side, and the rights of the accused. It's nice to see that - especially against someone like Jameson - and the Spider-Man vigilante Puritan perspective.
The story is a little simple, but I did like how Spider-Man was set out against himself - and needed time to recover from his injuries - and the problems of the last few issues. I also loved how his call to his aunt failed miserably.
