October 5, 2013 - An old style
But Spidey is better.
Beauty way to start the comic - contrasting the two lifestyles of Eric and Woody. Great explanation of them. And sticking Eric recounting two very different set-ups was brilliant, too. He's a student of life.
I also liked the way the 'today' started, as well - at the bottom of the panel.
The naming of the panels was a little lighter. Many reviews contrasting - and condemning - the current Q & W comic are complimentary of the old school set-up - but are too selective in memory. This one isn't particularly deep. But I did like the breaking the fourth wall with the 'bat' man reference. Well done. And the signal, too. SLICK.
Real Stan Lee homage through these panels - remember that someone may be the first time reader, and all. And I like Eric as a solo - but it really brought to the forefront for me how important both guys together are. Not that the comic was bad - it just needs both halves to be great.
In a new book.
I loved the set-up of this comic - and once again taking some big moves forward at the front and back end of the story. First - the curtains of the book. It's really developing a lot in the characters in the sidelines. The Green Goblin has regained his memories - something we're certain would have happened - but it is leading forward to other stories - not just the back of this story.
But it also develops the character of Mysterio, too. That's interesting. On top of seeing him without his mask - or fish bowl as the case may be - it shows behind the curtain to show how his tricks are working. It's cool to see him on the bus - or jumping through clouds - and the balance back and forth is great, too. It shows just enough. Love it.
