This series was due a big ol' clunker, filler issue and boy did it get it. Where to begin?

I'll give the art about a 6, it's ok, but it's twee kawaii shit dialed up to 11, all to serve writing that is doing very much the same.

There's a small rash of writers over at DC (thanks in no small part to Geoff Johns) on trying to add new characters and canon, but instead of something more

As a casual reader, this didn't do much for me. It's a mishmash of characters I'm sure have greater significance for Spider-Verse stories, but I think this just isn't for me.

I remember seeing that cover image of Lois holding a bloodied Superman in her arms, as the cape billows in the background, and my tiny 10 year old brain was shattered. They got me!

30 years later, the weight of the moment is still not lost, despite the wacky shenanigans we went through to get Supes back. I was sort of hoping we'd get a reaction from Jon to the Super Mullet his dear old more

Underwhelming, to say the least.

I really was expecting some sort of wild twist - as this IS a Hulk book and this IS a Hulk story after all - that Hulk would beat Thor and take his place as a god among the rest. But that would be a diversion from the overall story Cates may be trying to tell here. I'm still hoping for a longer game here, but overall the art is saving this series so far more
