    Yeah, same here. Let us read it all in one shot and decide if it's good or not.

    Actually, all the issues have already been solicited.

    I heard the sales were so bad compared to what Abrams promised that Disney/Marvel is very reluctant to finish the series. Some people honestly thought every issue would sell well north of one million copies in the first printing.

    LMAO at the Peter is invited by Tony to join a "Teenage Hero Think Tank" bit. Marvel is still determined to de-age Pete in all but name whenever and however possible, eh, how pathetic. Peter as a teen stories are so last century. Well, at least Miles is growing as a character and he is the actual teen....

    First off, it's an out of continuity story and based off the Disney Parks ride, which has this exact same premise. So I don't see how it's pathetic for Marvel to have one five issue series with this as opposed to the myriad of comics that feature classic Spider-Man. Complain if you want, but don't be dumb about it.

    *Yawn* Whatever you say. It doesn't matter to me anyway as I've given up on 616 Peter as a character until and unless something changes (such as the Kindred reveal).

    Would Gwen as Kindred and the marriage restored ( maybe even in ASM 850)?’work for you?

    It would indeed get me interested again. I'm tired of zero character growth for 616 Pete & co, which has been a persistent problem since OMD. While I enjoyed much of what Spencer has done (up until I stopped reading several months ago) I'm deeply concerned the Marvel Office will prevent him from taking Spider-Man out of the character development freeze they've imposed. There is barely even an illusion of change anymore for Spidey let all own true character develop. Take Batman and Superman by way of contrast. With Batman, you have Damian, Alfred's death, and whatever is going on with him & Catwoman. With Superman, there is his marriage to Lois, Jon Kent, and his recent secret identity reveal.

    Hopefully that will happen in isuse 43. The ending of the current Boomerang arc has the solicits say that "Peter Parker's life will change possibly forever." The immediate issue afterwards is said to be the first face to face confrontation with Spidey and Kindred but as a Boomerang fan I would love if it had to do with Fred's actions. Maybe something Fred does in the current arc is a risk for everything Kindred is putting in place. Would love that!

    I'm hoping to get my pull list of The Amazing Spider-Man #47 and #48. I might give Non-Stop Spider-Man #1 a go. I've read little by Joe Kelly and I don't like Chris Bachalo's art.

    This one was missing from the list:

    EMPYRE: SPIDER-MAN #3
    TARAN KILLAM (W), DIEGO OLORTEGUI (A), Cover by HUMBERTO RAMOS
    VARIANT COVER BY MARCO CHECCHETTO
    * If there's one thing you know about Peter Parker it's that he will sacrifice his personal life for saving people as Spider-Man.
    * This time, that sacrifice will change aspects of his relationship with his girlfriend, Mary Jane, but it may save MANY lives. This time from an interstellar invader.
    * Maybe his burgeoning friendship with a new, strange, very small Spider-Man-obsessed super hero will help fix things?

    I have the previous issues to the Wedding, so this may be a good opportunity to finally read it

    I'm pretty sure Disney/ Marvel aren't in any way responsible for delays. The co-writer is a busy guy.

    Thoughts:

    - I'll be interested to see just how "Non-Stop" Non-Stop Spider-Man is. I guess it's the "adventure" book of the titles.

    - The new WEB is kind of random. Sudden MCU tie-in? One-shot AU? Just not sure what it's going for. I like Kevin Shinick though.

    - Gwen Stacy vs The Kingpin? It's probably too much to expect this meeting will show how out of her depth Gwen is, isn't it?

    - They're really leaning into the Arkham Aslyum comparisons with Ravencroft in those ASM solicits.

    - So the Oni Mask assassin has future tech? I wonder what that's about. I hope Ze Carlos can live up to Carlos Gomez' work on the title.

    - I guess Miles is no longer dealing with Outlawed upfront in his own book, but instead his own Clone Saga.

    - Ha! Blade and Morbius. That always ends well .

    - I never expected to see Lilly Hollister back in her "heroic" identity and trying to make Black Cat her self-proclaimed Archenemy. That should be amusing, although Felicia will probably complain she's not a Supervillain again. Then again, she just robbed from Iron Man...

    MARVEL ACTION SPIDER-MAN (2020) #6

    (W) Brandon Easton (A/CA) Fico Ossio

    The Spidey team has taken on ferocious foes of all kinds, but they've never faced anyone with a sting like this villain's. Prepare for the coming of the Scorpion in this perfect jumping-on point for new readers. From writer Brandon Easton (Star Trek: Year Five, Agent Carter) and artist Fico Ossio (No One Left to Fight, Transformers: Unicron).
    In Shops: Jun 10, 2020

    SRP: $3.99
    That is a pretty sick Scorpion design.

    I'm pretty certain no one actually thought that. No one at Marvel, at least.

    I don't think Marvel themselves is reluctant to finish the series. Abrams, on the other hand, might not be too engaged with it at this point.

    I dropped it after one issue so whatever they do with it doesn't matter to me.
