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?

Wow! I'm surprised that they're giving her her own book again. I actually bought an Essentials trade of her ooooooold series that Chris Claremont wrote, and a lot of it is surprisingly good. I like his use of villains and supporting characters. I hope that the retcon that Viper is her mother is gone, though. Ugh!

Personally, I like Julia Carpenter more, and I find her to be more interesting. What's going on with Spider-Girl? There seem to be quite a few Spider-people out there. Maybe it's time to clean the house.
