This was so good. I loved how neatly it was bookended and it keeps you flip flopping on who to side with.

Strange Adventures #6

By: Tom King, Mitch Gerads
Released: Oct 14, 2020

How determined is Mr. Terrific to find the truth? The answer becomes more challenging as the whole world starts to turn against him. Adam Strange is a hero who can save the Earth from alien invasion, and who is Mr. Terrific to say otherwise? The extent of the denial only makes the man more suspicious. 
Not that the warmongering Pykkts care...

War with the Anti-Matter World! The cliffhanger to Season One led to this cataclysmic confrontation! We saw that only one anti-matter soldier could decimate a small army of Green Lanterns. What happens when a horde of them strike?

It’s been 35 years since Ozymandias dropped a giant interdimensional squid on New York City, killing thousands and destroying the public’s trust in heroes once and for all. And since that time, one figure in a fedora, mask, and trenchcoat has become a divisive culture icon.
So what does it mean when Rorschach reappears as an assassin try...

• J. Jonah Jameson's new gig has proven to be nothing but trouble for Spidey.

• J. Jonah Jameson kicks off his new life as a podcast host and his first guest? SPIDER-MAN!

I'm glad Nick Spencer acknowledged that Civil War 2 did this already, because I was thinking that during the last arc. This one was pretty good after the last arc, which was pretty much one of the worst arcs of the whole run.

Amazing Spider-Man #37

By: Nick Spencer, Ryan Ottley
Released: Jan 8, 2020

• There are too many problems in New York City and Spidey can't be in four places at once-- unless he CAN?!
•  Peter's life is as complicated as ever but can science be the answer?
•  It's a new year and the buildup to "Last Remains" and much more starts here!

My god. This arc actually had some interesting concepts going on, but the art is insulting. This is a top tier character. Marvel's highest of the high A-list characters, and this is the art they settle on? I have a friend who isn't a comic artist and she drew a comic that looked 1000x better than this... for free. Once again the arc as a whole just feels sloppy and unsatisfying, but since it is Sp more

It's like every time you respond, you make it even clearer that you were offended by the content. You're perpetuating PC culture even more than this comic has by being so incredibly sensitive to a single sentence. if you care more about being pc than focusing on the merits of the comic then ill pass.

Rinaldi - Sep 19, 2020

@YourGreenMuse I gotta disagree with you. The line your talking to stood out to me as well. I stopped reading for a second and rolled my eyes. Then I finished the comic.
