November 21, 2013 - Changes direction
Both are disappointing. Sad.
And I'm your you.
Still not a couple.
I never really understood why this story line got all of the attention it did. Even when I read it, I thought that the comic put away everything it had done for the cheap laugh here. Sure - it wrote it in such a way that it was much easier to follow - and somewhat believably. But all of that for a few cheap jokes initially, I didn't get.
I wish that the tone changed radically right from the start of it. Put each other into the new perspective - and even revel in the changes.
The bathroom scene was funny - as was the continuing not a couple jokes. But even these are getting tired, now.
Get back to tackling the stronger issues in the book. Please.
The comic really has been writing an interesting concept. Take Spider-Man and put him into the role of the villain - by forcibly allying him with Kingpin.
Great concept - but the execution of this one has seemed SO dated. Spider-Man has taken a tumble - even if it has taken a few interesting turns up, as well.
I like the change-over - to a few of the characters, though. Including Gwen more - even if MJ has disappeared here - has made her a more round character. And even without getting there - her death has been made a greater impact.
But the art and writing has gotten lazier. So few panels - and the changes have abbreviated much of the story. But the end of this - seeing the end (even if I know where it will go) made a rather cool impact.
