As a Spider-man fan - I feel like this was way too quick of a read. It was a quick set up which got resolved in less than a a page. I wish that wolverine and spidey had more interactions with each other. Calling back to the story like in Spider-man vs Wolverine wouldve neat. It just seems like they could have replaced wolverine with any other hero and the results wouldve been the same. Gleason's a more

I preferred her complexity in house of x and the mystery behind all her lives. She was obviously planning something big but that plan never came about once Hickman left.

In this spidey, she just seemed to one note villian for me. It's okay if you disagree. Just my thoughts on the whole matter

Only the art has value -- because the writing is just TK using Alan Moore as a springboard while writing some edgelord crap on par with Mark Millar's Nemesis.

That was quite possibly the worst comic book I have read, it's definitely the worst Batman story I have ever read.

Tom king should never be allowed to write a Batman comic again after that.

Don't try and ruin the killing joke because your a hack writer.

Did you really enjoy the riddlers new origin being his mean ol dad spanked him everytime he didn't get perfect on a test? That's a really really lame ass origin

You do realize that Riddler's actual origin is that he cheated in a puzzle contest in school, and won, and thereby became obsessed with puzzles and scamming, right?

You're coming to the series because it's well drawn and full of hot and sexy times -- but removed from that, and you find a mostly unlikable main character, and even if she's like that as a product of her upbringing, the fact is that she's still unintentionally unsympathetic.

We're back to the shenanigans of a comic not being a comic -- instead, an exercise on graphic design with the pages full of fake ads and such -- it's basically backmatter that you'd find at the end of a deluxe collection, rather than a comic itself.

As usual, Cain delivers a comic light on content -- with several pages getting used to her "graphic design is my passion" bug.

The story seems to be an improvement so far over the original story, but it's just the first issue -- it does have bits of cringe here and there, but it's nowhere near as bad as the original series -- but then again, and I repeat myself, it's just the first issue.
