Only thing disappointing is that it ends at 12 issues. This should be an ongoing.

People seem to be spewing nepotism which I mean is a valid complaint but if anything the response indicates why this kinda stuff happens. Henry Abrams is being criticized quite intensely for his first outing, no doubt because of his lineage. I mean who wouldnt help their kid out though, its not like we know his writing sucks but he keeps getting books.

"This is a good story; it talks about people, family, love, loneliness and much more...then it just so happens that all of this takes place in the world of Spider-Man. Spider-Man is a vehicle to tell stories about people and their struggles...and that is amazing." says Sara Pichelli.

Absolutely I agree and Sara Pichelli is definitely a good choice as a penciler for the series. I think t more

READ RUMBLE - Jul 3, 2019

Calling someone an ‘asshat’ because they have a different opinion than you is wrong. Pseudnik has a right to their opinion and they didn’t personally attack someone. Frankly, Bendis’ Lois and Clark relationship to me seems odd and out of character, so I stopped reading supe and action, but will give this a try due to Rucka. I think most people know Rucka is a pretty political guy and it will show in his stories, so I’m assuming this is what they meant by ‘political posturing’

Juann Cabal is an excellent Spider-Man artist. His style and panelling brings the Marvel Universe to life in a unique and extraordinary way. Some of his action poses are stuff, but that's something to improve upon over time.
