    Yeah, it was likely just there to build intensity toward the dramatic reveal that Overdrive is back from the dead. Love how immersed Spencer is in Spidey lore, and how he's able to incorporate things...

    Ah, ok. I totally missed the connection. Interesting. Wonder if Sin-Eater is raising some kind of army of 'cleansed' souls for Kindred.

    That opening scene with Carlie very ominously mirrored Jean DeWolff's narration at the beginning of "The Death of Jean DeWolff." I thought for sure Carlie was a goner when she wondered, "Why have I...

    My understanding of the verse is that in biblical times, a 'superior' never struck an inferior with their right hand. So by 'turning the other cheek' one forced the aggressor to either strike with...

    Oh, man. This is issue is sooooo good. And very clearly a love letter to both of PAD's Sin-Eater stories.

    It is so very very good. As is the sequel, which unfortunately doesn't get as much attention.

    The supernatural aspect presumably isn't a retcon, since it happened after PAD killed him off. So more like a continuation of his story. Though if you're not okay with him ever being something more...

    She did side with Bullitt in his anti-Spider-Man crusade and never apologized for having allied herself with a man revealed to be a white supremacist. But I'm not sure Marvel would go there? (From a...

    This. Looks. So. Good.

    The additional backstory is perfect. Love how the flashback panels evoke the present--like young Stan wearing the purple jacket and green gloves when he shoots the deer.

    In-universe there's no logical explanation that I'm aware of.

    In ASM 274, Mephisto never gave any indication he considered Spider-Man a threat or even worthy of his attention. Quite the opposite,...

    Also, problem with Harry is that he made peace with Peter before his death. So if you have Harry returning as a villain straight from hell, you're undermining the intent of DeMatteis' story. And...

    Wasn't so long ago that Governor Abbott did the same thing in Texas. Then the big wave began post July 4th and he mandated masks. Wonder if Georgia's governor will be willing to do the same as...

    I definitely think that's the case. This past issue actually showed what Mephisto claimed in OMD--that a piece of Peter's soul would understand the loss he suffered.

    Not everything is marketing. Spencer is, first and foremost, a storyteller. Buzz is a storytelling consideration--you want excitement, after all--but "Sins Past" put Gwen in a story that was a poor...

    Yeah, but the Ned thing could potentially be a red herring. I mean, it's kind of weird that in a short time Spencer confirmed that clones have the individual's real soul, then had Ned's clone show up...

    It's Ned! Nah, I don't know. Both seem like credible options. But I'm personally partial to Ned. Doesn't really matter though I'm loving the ride and I'm pretty confident Spencer will make it work...

    You bring up an interesting point. I'd say it's certainly possible the Gwen mini was designed to feed into Spencer's story. But equally possible the writer pitched the concept independently of...

    The Ned clone is interesting. Nick Spencer made it clear that clones are the real deal and have souls, and then brought Ned's clone to the forefront only to kill him off. But that could be a red...

    Gwen is definitely still a possibility. She has law enforcement connections through her father so that could explain her interest in the criminal underworld and also Stan Carter.

    And this issue was great. A truly creepy descent into some kind of mental hellscape.

    Peter's dialogue about needing MJ rings true--and hints at One More Day having long-term consequences.

    I still feel like Ned Leeds is a pretty good bet for Kindred? His interests seem to gravitate toward Ned's crime reporting sensibilities. He'd have had a professional interest in Wilson Fisk and the...

    You are absolutely right. J.M. DeMatteis' Phantom Stranger run is brilliant. And Fernando Blanco's art! Breathtaking. His depictions of heaven and hell are wonderful.
