    This what we doing now? The themes draw right from Miles.

    That costume probably didn't hurt .

I didn't think much of it in the first issue and it looks even worse in the second. Maybe I'm in the minority on this and most everyone else thinks it looks great (and more power to them if it does) but, for me, yuck. I know she's under exclusive contract at Marvel but I hope they let her go - or at least don't put her on anything I have an interest in.
    We know Pichelli can do very strong work and art. I don't think the inking and coloring has been as strong on this book as it was, say, when she was working on the Ultimate books.

    It wasn't that bad, but it still wasn't as good as it could be. That said, interesting reversal of the classic motto --- "great responsibility" is what bestows "great power," not necessarily the other way around. I'll stick around just to see how it finishes up, and if there is any hope for improvement for Peter or Ben II, let alone the other characters, in this.

    We have similar tastes, that extends to this.

    Well according to Comichron, Issue #1 was the second best selling comic of September, behind Spawn #300.

    Now that I think about it, the girl reminds me a lot of Tim Seeley's Defacer character from his Nightwing run.

    First issue + "big-name creative team" = pretty much guaranteed sell.

    I'll be interested to see how this (the second issue) preforms. For example, I purchased the first issue out of curiosity before being turned off by the narrative.

    Yeah, question is if the other 4 are still gonna sell well, obviously none of them will particularly sell better than the first one, but we'll see if it'll still keep selling well.

    at least Peter has a male heir for once to suit up: up until now it's been mainly women.

    Are we still practicing Salic Law? I was under the impression in modern democracies at least, that women have equal inheritance rights.

    And in any case as far as male heir of the mantle Spider-Man goes...the kid has a name and it's Miles Morales.

    When Benny the Ball reaches 100 comics for an ongoing like Mayday did, or break big like Miles...then we'll talk.

    unless this series vastly improves, JJ Abrahms foray into Spidey will be quite forgettable.....and after years of trying to snag him..

    I mean, if that's all that's going on for him, then he's gonna be forgotten a month after the mini ends lol.

    Maybe they could suddenly improve like Zdarsky, I'm not expecting it, but it'd be nice if it does happen.

    Oh, yeah, I liked her a lot, actually, and I wouldn't mind Ben II growing into a more swashbuckling, freewheeling personality similar to Nightwing's as he adjusts to his powers and starts to get over his issues with Peter/Spider-Man.

    Really not for me. I gave this issue a try after not enjoying the first just to see if it improved. It didn’t. I’m out.
