I think you're stupid dude. Rest of heroes doesn't like Spider Man, because Kingpin does all the parades. And he doens't know that Spider Man is Peter. No one said it.

An excellent start to Nick Spencer's Spider-Man run. While overly long and full of side plots, this issue perfectly handles the goofy Parker inner monologue, the banter, the maniacal villains, the friend drama, and the Peter Parker bad luck. I was skeptical of this relaunch after being disappointed by everything after "Superior Spider-Man", but there is plenty here to like. This is the type of st more

Generally nice artwork, but I personally find Joelle Jones is too heavy on the inks. She does do a marvelous job on making her art kinetic, and she frames some of the best scenes beautifully. It feels like I'm reading a movie story board. And a major plus on this issue is the new paper stock. I much prefer the more matte finish and tactile feel I get here, rather than the overly glossy and harder- more

Upon a little further reflection, I had to lower from 9 to 8. Too much spinning the wheels, and overall a story I don't want any more of. I get it, but let's just all move on to something different. No more Bat and Cat, or I'm out.

Wow, this issue is receiving a violent reaction from the fans here...I thought it was pretty good. First--yeah, it's a bit of a sham that the wedding doesn't even happen. Yeah, it was a bit of a letdown, and the idea that Catwoman steps away because Batman needs his misery to be who he is kind of shitty. But maybe that's true?

I love the deep and complex look at what it means to be a hero. It's what I've always loved about the Peter Parker back story. He misses out on a lot of the easy parts in life, so that he can save people and stop bad guys.

It’s lazy. Heroes can be happy and married and still be heroes. This was just lazy writing.

Wow great issue, King pays Homage to the Bat and Cat history with pin-up art, while continuing his fresh and original work on the Bat/Cat romance. Its charming, introspective, intriguing, and quite sad. It's a heartbreaker, and the ending truly had me surprised.

WOW. That was NOT the comic book I wanted to read. After 4+ years of build up I really wanted to see Batman and Catwoman embark on a happy life together. But that would have been too easy. 50 issues, it turns out, is genuinely not enough time to earn that enormous sea change.

I like the way you worded that - not the book you wanted to read. I think there is story potential in a married Batman, but a solid case was laid out in this story for why Catwoman felt like she had to leave Batman at the altar. Plus, all of previous plot lines continue to point to a scheme to remove Batman from his role as hero. Where will it all end up?

I think you may be exaggerating with the intricate design and things being woven together. I'm sure King had the bigger story mapped out from the start, but I sincerely doubt that every little thing, including "fillers", will pay off in the future.

The DC Universe is on a boilerplate, and Doomsday Clock keeps dialing up the heat. The paranoia is tangible, the art is fantastic, and the battle lines are being drawn. Geoff Johns promised this series was going to be a philosophical debate between the the DC Universe and the Watchmen Universe, and I really feel like this issue is defining the parameters of that debate. If Watchmen's influence on more

Having recently been made aware of the "Batman: the Cult" miniseries, this one-shot return to that concept was nice. What really sells this issue though is the Sebastian Fiumara art.
