Not-So-Amazing Spider-Man #626

What do the following all have in common? A machine made by Hoover, Spider-Man # 626, a vortex, and my attitude.

They all suck.

(And so does Sidney Crosby, a.k.a. Cindy Crysbaby.)

Lente just isn't a good writer. Gaydos is a horrid artist. This whole book is made of fugly. Fugly art, fugly wrtiting.

Traditionally, the Spider-Sense only kicks up when there is an immediate danger. Yet in this story, it kicks up when a 'former' criminal is visiting with Michele at the apartment. A. -- it's unbelievably stupid for any attorney to let any criminal know where they live. Just. Damned. Stupid. B. -- there is no danger here. If the Spider-Sense is going to kick up every time Spider-Man comes within 5 feet of any criminal, it is going to kick up all the time, making it useless.

Late in the story, the Spider-Sense returns after being dampened, and Spider-Man uses it as a guidance system telling him which way to go to get to safety. That's changing the way it works, and making it more like Daredevil's radar.

Yet at a vital point in the story, the Spider-Sense fails to warn Spider-Man that he is about to get attacked. That point is when the female Scorpion stings him and dampens his Spider-Powers.

Cliched and hackneyed are two polite words that come to mind when I think of this book. And I find I hate that I am thinking about this book. I'm not writing any more about it, even though I could go on for a thousand more words about how bad this comic is. I'm not wasting my time.

Sucked. Fugly. Sucked. Fugly. Sucked. Fugly. Sucked. Fugly. Sucked. Fugly. Sucked. Fugly. Sucked. Fugly. Sucked. Fugly. Sucked. Fugly. Sucked. Fugly. Sucked. Fugly. Sucked. Fugly. Sucked. Fugly. Sucked. Fugly. Sucked. Fugly. Sucked. Fugly. Sucked. Fugly. Sucked. Fugly.

I hope I never read another comic this bad for the rest of my life.

And I'm being kind.

What is the worst-reviewed book you guys have had? Because I would think this is going to challenge that, at this rate. :shock:

Seriously, the lot of you are off your meds. The Gaydos art in this is brilliant.

his art is okay, in a different book and this is not his best work by a long shot. You are starting to sound like Punchy.

Most seriously fucked up and antiquated logic ever. Good is good, this "not in my Spider-Man" bullshit is why fanboys are socially toxic.

Bitching on the internet and waiting for 3:15 so I can leave the office. It's the same fucking thing I do every Friday afternoon. :P

But one book stands out as having a big neon sign flashing REVIEW ME!

Blackest Night #8.

I fully expect to see a lot of 4s, 5s, and 6s because of the hate factor, but that's my choice.

But I was waiting for the trade!

Not. :wink:

That should be fun. Good choice, Old Man.

your liking this book when it is bad and when Gaydos' work is less than his best and giving it a perfect ten is the liberal equivalent to my conservative stance. You are just as militant, bitch!
