For the life of me, I can't understand the fascination for Stephen Colbert. His brand of comedy just doesn't do it for me. I don't know what it is about him that I just can't stand. I can tolerate the "Vote for Colbert" insignias some of the pencillers have inserted here and there within the pages of Amazing Spider-Man but now they're adding an eight-page story plus a variant cover?! I mean, what the f***! I've been all for BND since the beginning and I've rarely criticized the issues so far but why not utilize those eight pages to answer some of the outgoing plot holes rather than shoving Colbert in our face even more. I know Joe Quesada loves the guy but enough is enough. I know I might be in the minority here but what the heck...I'm entitled to an opinion too! Sorry about the rant.
