Subj: Amazing Mary Jane #1: Will YOU pay to see MJ in this?

The Amazing Mary Jane 001

This was a pretty standard set up issue. Nothing particularly bad about it but nothing particularly exciting with the 20page chatfest either. MJ gets her name on a book again, good for her. Spidey gets a small in-continuity guest appearance, good for readers. The last page Revolving Door appearance of the Sinister Six was a surprise but is also predictably peeving - but who knows, maybe they'll all get satisfying footnotes next ish. The major "flaw" with this premiere, imo, was the MJ characterization when she casually (and revoltingly from my POV) accepts a team-up -on this Spidey explotative film- offer with one of the A-List Spider-Rogues, the murderous Mysterio, after blunderingly revealing his true identity and surreptitiously selfish sales pitch.

The art was okay as was an update on Kangaroo.

A bit curious that no real hint of Kindred (drama) for newer readers to see.
