    So really, if you're dying to see what your favorite Marvel superheroes and other characters that fill out the line would be like in the Elizabethan era, it's not a bad read. The question remains, however, why the comic exists at all. If writers want to tell a story set in the 17th century (even one with superheroes), why does it have to be about Spider-Man? Can't we come up with an original idea, or do we have to keep parroting familiar stories we've all heard before, dressing them up in frilly Olde English drag? Jeff Parker has been shown to be an idea machine, and he can make stories work even under ridiculous constraints, but wouldn't it be better for everyone to let him really use his imagination and come up with something unique? I suppose we'll have to take what we can get for now, but hopefully one day he'll be free of these silly corporate shackles and able to express himself fully. I know I'll be looking expectantly toward the horizon, waiting for that day to come. Read Full Review

    I'm not a fan of pirates and sailors, I played AC IV and watched enough of the Pirates of the Caribbean, so I think that's already too much for me... But it was good written here, can't say it was boring. Kingpin of earth-311 is fine, but Bull's eye... I think the artist gone too far with his design. And I fear there will be too many villains for one arc. But we'll see...
