Quote:Okay, my thoughts on the issue is that it's okay but not as good as the last one.
Quote:*I do think the idea of Peter disguising himself as Venom is a great idea, as I always thought it could easily be done under the right circumstances. And it was also interesting to see Sue provide him with an artificial symbiote suit invented by Reed. And speaking of inventions, Peter's homemade "brown noise" generator appropriately showcased the fact that Spidey CAN invent things on his own. It looked appropriately homemade, and was a nice usage of stopping Venom.
Becoming Venom to infiltrate the Dark Avengers was a nice touch. I was wondering where the clear box came from when Spidey caught Gargan for like a good 10 seconds.
Quote:*However, this leads to the BIG negative I had with this issue, and that's the scene with Gargan/Venom and the hooker. For all intends and purposes, what Gargan was doing was tantamount to an attempted rape, although technically he was actually going to eat her--as if THAT were any better. It just seemed widely out of place for an all-ages book like Amazing Spider-Man.
He is a bad guy but I definitely didn't like the scene.
Quote:*Likewise, I didn't really care much for the artwork this time around. Maybe because since Paulo Siqueira was doing it instead of Phil Jiminez, it just seemed to be a bit jarring to have a change in style like this in the middle of a five part story arc. Perhaps Jiminez was behind schedule and they go Siqueira to fill in?
This was negative for me. I had bought both issues of this story yesterday and there was no connection between the story telling in the issues. The page layouts and characters were drastically different between the 2 issues. It didn't read right when reading consecutively. Oh well...
Quote:*Oh, and although crude, nice touch with Bullseye killing the rat with bogger. :tongue:
Quote:So, overall, it seems like things are still creeping right along. Hopefully, things will pick up a bit more next time.
Spidey fighting to get out of the Avengers tower should be a slugfest. Daken probaly already sniffed him out.
