So Land's GIS and Porn tracing is even more noticeable when it is a book that is almost entirely female cast members because no one has their mouths shut at all, ever.

Without giving anything away, there is some mildly amusing lines like Jess calling 30s Spider-Man "Prohibition Spider-Man". But beyond that, the book is just really, really dumb and seems to just exist to pawn several of the characters off into their own adventures until they're needed for the main event.

Silk is still a really bad an annoying character but at least that fetish costume is gone.

Anya is probably going to kick the bucket because she gets a big "You need to keep running and go and protect Silk because staying to fight means you die" speech. Probably to give Silk an "Uncle Ben moment" which every damn new Spider-writer seems to be obsessed with giving anyone with Spider-powers.

Doubtful that Spider-Gwen dies off. She actually has the other (yes, there are two of them) good line in the whole book. She comments that hanging out with Jessica Drew is doing wonders for her body image issues.

Like seriously, how does Greg Land continue to get work? How is this an acceptable way to draw anyone?

Spider-Gwen and Silk have the special plot armor protection of having a new series coming for each of them after this stupid "event" is completed.

Any Spider that is not part of a series, such as Kaine being part of the latest trademark of the New Titans,....I mean New Warriors, or getting a solo series like Spider-Gwen and Silk will be receiving, should be considered fair game for termination.

So that means that:

1. The Allegedly Amazing Spiderman, broker of faustian bargains is safe
2. The Allegedly Superior Spiderman is safe as we already know he will be sent back to his proper place in the time stream

3. Kaine should be safe even though he is "The Other"

4. Jessica Drew is safe

5. Spider-Gwen and Silk are safe.
