Remender delivers a fairly good story with a familiar tone done in other media before. But it feels like the correct approach to this chapter. Liked it a lot and with Scalera killing on art and dinisio colors are just perfect you can't go wrong!

Superior Spider-Man #9

By: Christos Gage, Mike Hawthorne
Released: Jul 17, 2019

After saving the citizens of San Francisco from the worst of THE WAR OF THE REALMS, the Superior Spider-Man is the toast of the town! The key to the city! A ticker-tape parade! Adoration of the masses! That should make him feel good, right? Whatever he's feeling, he should treasure it, because someone very dangerous is coming for him...

Awesome, Cates really gets the cosmic characters and universe, and it's giving me serious vibes reminiscent of the Abnett and Lanning cosmic run. As everyone knows, the art is just amazing, throwback to some of the best silver age art. Just spectacular all around

well, it's been a year since Spencer took over this title and I've got to say it's been pretty good so far.

This issue has it all and it's probably my favorite so far, everyone is at their best in this and it's so much fun to read.

Let's hope for another good year like this.

A lot of things here. First, the Kindred stuff. I liked it a lot. I've been calling for a while that Kindred is some form of Peter Parker, perhaps the pre-OMD Peter. The clues are mostly in his design. He's been getting redder and bluer with each appearance. His golden centipedes remind me of the Iron Spider costume. Civil War did lead into OMD... Also, he has a lot of extensive knowledge. Althoug more

Pretty good stuff. All of the stories were good and delivered some nice moments (even the last few pages). I'm enjoying this title and steadily been good with some nice art to go along. Finally, I know it's a broken record but the prices on these books is just not gonna help get any new young readers on board if anything some will drop it.

It's a great start. The first few pages were very confusing. It's hard to follow with snow and no idea who the characters were. Not sure if that's on Waid or Lulis? But after that it was great and absolutely lovely to read. Mattia de lulis is an outstanding artist!

I think I might not be enjoying Kamala's adventures anymore. Maybe it's the new direction by Ahmed. This is just too predictable and almost dull in some parts. I might have to drop this book after reading it since day one.
