    Hi Frogoat,


    I'm probably an issue or two behind at this point,but I have been keeping an eye on the title
    and it's on my pull-list at my friendly neighborhood comic shop.

    It's fun.I really like the artwork.(Though May's new outfit seems to give the colorist fits.)

    The whole premise sometimes feels a tad"science-fictiony"for Mayday,(like her casually grabbing lunch in an alternate dimension)but that's just my personal taste.(And I'm one of the guys that had her fighting the Omega Skrull in the Negative Zone so I'm a hypocrite anyway.)



Thanks for replying! You are right, the colourists do seem to have trouble with the new costume. I enjoy the artwork as well, it's vibrant and fun. I find the science fiction angle out of place with Spidey stories for the most part, but it works with the light-hearted tone (something Spider-Verse did not pull off, on the whole) and now that the initial story arc is over, I hope the series does shorter, more character-focused stories. I think issue #6 was a good example of what the series could be. Obviously, as a fan of Mayday, I still can't get past the characters absence on covers, and in scenes set in her own world, let alone come to grips with the short-sightedness that brought about her status quo in the first place. Obviously, I don't blame the team on this book for that, they were given a series concept to work on and they've done what they can with it. I just want Mayday to get the respect and dignity her character has earned through over a decade of stories.

Thanks again for responding. I'm always curious how creators feel when their creations are in the hands of others.
