Spiderman #36.

So I just read Amazing Spiderman #26, which is Marvel Comics’ official response to the Sept. 11th attacks in NYC. As these things go, it was pretty good. It was penned by J. Michael Strascinsky, who I’m not a huge fan of – he tends for schlock melodrama in his comics, and has the subtlety of an angered rhinocerous. The art was by John Romita Jr, who is one my three or four favourite comic artists. Overall, I give the story a seven. It was a nice gesture, it serves a purpose and it tells the story well, w/r/t to the existence of superheroes who still could not stop the attack. I thought the inclusion of a tearing Dr. Droom was a little much, but whatever. What really got my goat, however, was that there was an advert every other page almost! I fully expected this to be advert-free – or perhaps an inside cover and back cover ad, something like that. But it seemed to have more adverts than usual almost! And nothing wrecks a set mood like an add for trading cards, or computer games, etc. Growl.

  1. Who really cares what the heck is in there besides the material? They could have 100 advertisements for all I care. It wasn’t about quality! It was about the message. This black cover says it all! “Something is different! This isn’t like the OTHER issues! This one is meant to stand out!” So go to college or finish high school! Have a heart! Dr. Doom crying, is supposed to say something beyond your “eye for quality!” It’s suppossed to say, “It doesn’t matter who you are, good or bad, because when something beyond evil happens, it is going to affect you!” Think about this, When that “that you didn’t like” penned this, he wasn’t making it for you! Take the candy wrappers off your stomach and be a a man and think about this, if it was made for you your name would be on the front? Did you notice it was black? No name at all? Ecspecially yours? It says this, “This is for all the members of September 11t, and the people that mourn for them. I’m going back my job at the law firm. Lose wait, move out of your moms house, and get a job!
