Now Spencer got my attention. I hope He leaves the book with a bang!

Amazing Spider-Man #70

By: Nick Spencer, Federico Vicentini
Released: Jul 7, 2021

SINISTER WAR PRELUDE!
The Sinister War turns Spidey's life upside-down, but the fact that KING'S RANSOM and CHAMELEON CONSPIRACY already did that, might give you an idea of how hard this is going to be for Peter Parker.

You didn't like Mr.Miracle? If not then i understand just, I'm just curious.

daspidaboy - Jun 15, 2021

I think Mr. Miracle is good, I'm just not a fan of the 9 panel lay out and how Tom King drew nine pictures of Granny Goodness reacted to anything. Plus, I was more interested in how Mister Miracle dealt with being a dad instead of thinking whether Mr. Miracle was hallucinating or not. What makes you like Mr. Miracle @Crimson Knight?
