I'm a little confused by the lack of any real indication of where this book is going, and I think that Andrews' opening is too long-winded and emotionally detached from its central character to really have Spider-Man fans interested. There's no hint of what we can expect from the next issue, and no story threads are established strongly enough to make you want to read on - so anyone who buys issue #2 is going to be doing so out of a blind faith that Andrews is going to take the book somewhere interesting. At $3.99 a pop, that's quite a gamble, and I wouldn't be surprised to see a massive drop-off in sales after this first instalment; personally, I'm enough of a fan of Spider-Man and of Andrews' art that I'll look in again next month, but if the story doesn't start moving and get interesting any time soon, Reign is going to go down as quite a disappointment.
