I'm balancing the scales motherfrakker. :twisted:

The art is a 10, IMO. For serious. I <3'd it.

The fact that this is racking up 1s and 2s is far higher on the bullshit scale than me giving it a 10.

I gave it a five. I feel that is honest, I think it is misplaced in the book - not just spider-man but the tone of this issue. Second, I don't think it is his best work. Seems I am being more balanced than not.

It's typically awesome Gaydos work that fits just fine with the tone of the story. You're all crazy! Crazy I say!

or maybe on yours, and that is why Gaydos's art doesn't look out of place, cause all your comics look like that.

I picked the event book because...let's face it...it is the most important event book over the last few months. (9 months, isn't it?) And it is the book that has been driving the sales chart for that time.

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.

So, I haven't enjoyed Spiderman since right before the Other since I used the Other as an excuse to drop spiderman. Which is why I'm so hesitant to pick up superman but that's for another time. I think this was a one off story but really it felt like a total throw away from page one to last panel of russian nut jobs. I started my heavy comic reading with Daredevil by Bendis and Maleev and have to say that I have since learned to just completely dislike Maleev's art. So why does Maleev matter when this book was clearly drawn by Michael Gaydos??? Because it's same shitty style except I've never liked Gaydos. Gaydos's art is out of place, stagnant and static in all the wrong ways and this issue has zero kinetic energy and doesn't seem to push any story forward. Van Lente's story isn't anything special either. Over all it just seems to an aimless issue that doesn't accomplish anything in the grand scheme of things.
