    This isn't about any issue of the comic. I just wanted to mention that I'm reading this book now. I hadn't been reading it, because I hated high school so it takes a lot to get me to see high school as entertaining. Still, I was a Buffy fan, so sometimes I deviate.


I am with you 100% here. Even as A teenager, I wasn't super fond of teen characters. Spider-Man's classics may have been the only deviation.

I like New Warriors and New Teen Titans, but those characters were mostly college aged before too long.

Don;t even really like NEw Mutants, and like almost everybody else I live his X-Men run. But, even Kitty I didn't like until she was older. Now I love her.

    Cool team affiliation, graphic beauty - and one more thing. Peter Parker has been unreadable for me since... oh man, since at least Civil War. I just can't bring myself to buy a Peter Parker comic. But I used to love buying Amazing and Spectacular and all the rest. What's a guy to do? I totally get why people used to buy Ultimate Spider-Man. I don't know if most of those people used to buy 616 Spidey too, but I bet a decent percentage of them didn't. It's like that for me right now with Miles Morales.


Spidey was the character that got me into comics, and I haven't read the book (minus when a classic creator returns for a story) since 2007.

As much as I hated them undoing the marriage, I gave it a try. You are right, unreadable.

    Anyone else buying this book?


No, but...

Spider-man: Into the Spider-Verse has me interested.

Miles Morales is 14, and presumably then in Middle School, an even harder sell. He wsa created when I was in my 20s... making it harder. I hadn't card about teh Ultimate UNiverse up until the point so... you get it.

When he came on the scene, despite my problems with main Spider, Peter was still Spider-man to me.

I shrugged it off and said, "If he is a good character he'll stick, but he is for the younger generation. It is their call."

Then, I went to go seen Spider-Verse, and was blown away. I was not expecting to like it a much as I did.

Miles still isn't my Spider-Man, but he is a legit Spider-man. Which is what I always wanted to have Hal Jordan fans say when Kyle Rayner took over.

Because of that, me interest is peeked in this new series. Your review may just be the push I need.

My one concern is, that I have heard that the comic version is not much like the film version of Miles. From teh guest appearances I have seen, it looks accurate.

THAT Miles is great. IN a very rare move on my part, I would say the comics should echo the film.

God knows I am sick of smarmy, and sarcastic Tony Stark.

If you have not seen it yet, do so Peter B. Parker is painfully good at depicting a comic like spider-Man', and gets a really good arc. Think Han Solo to Miles' Luke Skywalke.

However, Miles is pretty interesting in his own right. You really root and feel for him.

It is like there are two movies. The older crowd (over 25) will identify with Peter is some regards, and the younger with Miles. But both are easily respected.

A lot of people talk about how great it is for Miles to be a character for Black and Latino kids to reanimate with. However Miles, at least that Miles, I believe will do do with Black and Latino kids, but also White, Asian, Indian,... Martian Green.

Isn't that a little better.
