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.
You know if I wasn't married to David and you weren't straight, we might have been an item.
