Doing my penance

Ok, after being gently admonished by Dan Slott, I bit…I returned to my local shop and bought Amazing Spiderman #546 & #547. (Yeah, #547 was $2.99 as promised.) So, what did I think about it?

Well, at least it was fun. There’s a devil-may-care (pun unintended) attitude about it right now that takes it light-years away from the One More Day storyline, just as Mr. Quesada indicated it would. Dan Slott’s script is pretty breezy and harkens back a bit to the days where Spidey was pretty much a Charlie Brown in superhero tights. And I always rate how a writer handles Spidey with how clever Webhead’s quips are in a brouhaha. (The exchange he had with all the goombahs in ASM # 547 made me chuckle.)
Hmmm…guess we have our ‘pre-9/11’ Spiderman back. Although, I still don’t get how he appears to be younger than he was before OMD, or are they saying that marriage in the Marvel U ages you prematurely? (Doesn’t it do the same in real life? Rimshot.)
On a related note, I think I like this idea of running ASM like a television show with rotating writers, but let’s see how it turns out in the execution.
