Super-Adaptoid reviewed Amazing Spider-Man #78 Nov 14, 2021
4.0

Yeah, I had hopes for this new direction but it’s not thrilling me at all. I love a lot of dialogue in a comic but most of the dialogue in this one is just plain bad and wasted. The art is horrible. Having Morbius show up is a plus but it can’t save the issue for me…especially since Michael is just all “Grrr…Arggh”.

Amazing Spider-Man #78

By: Kelly Thompson, Sara Pichelli
Released: Nov 10, 2021

Ben Reilly’s second real outing as Spider-Man pits him against MORBIUS, and it DOES NOT GO WELL! The full support of Beyond gets tested as Morbius puts the hurt on Spidey in a big way.

It's a good book for the concept but I can't pretend that I don't realize the reason this book was created for right now: to promote vaccination. The panels from Schmidt weren't subtle at all. Now, I should add, so that I'm not misunderstood, that I am vaccinated and I think people should get the vaccine so that this whole nightmare can be over as soon as possible, though I don't think it should b more

Let me make it clear that I do not like Nick Spencer. Never have. In fact, he blocked me on Twitter years ago because I dared to call him out on a few things.

But when he started his ASM run, I gave it a shot. Three issues and I thought it was stupid and took it off my pull list. But then I started hearing about Kindred…and the mystery of who he was…and it reminded me of the good ol more

Ok, so my rating isn’t just for this issue, but the whole saga as a whole. So I guess I’m cheating. I just sat down and read from issue one of Sinister War (including the ASM issues tied in) that I had been stockpiling to read all at once. I am apparently in the minority because I think it’s bloody good!

True, it’s not over yet because we have two more issues of Spencer’s run, more

There wasn't much to the character at the time Bendis showed up. An ok Super Sons book is about all. If they deaged Jon tomorrow, it doesn't mean anything would be better.

Okay, the story wasn’t that great…but it gets a 10 from me on the cover, the easter eggs and especially the little 70’s style Marvel ads at the bottom of every page! I kept looking for this universe’s version of “It’s a fright! Buy Werewolf By Night!”

I rarely read any of my new comics on the day of release but I’ve been looking forward to this one. It didn’t disappoint.

Pretty art and I’m intrigued enough to try the new mini. What I did not like was the narrations and I hope they drop the idea as they move forward. When I first met Dane, he was just a stony statue being fought over by the Avengers and the Defenders so I’m eager to see him get a little spotlight...even if this is kind of a revisionist take on the character.

A distraction from what's really going on, if you will." What's really going on is they're bringing back Earth-1610 and this is the long setup.
