The Amazing Spider-Man #700

I picked up the last issue of Amazing Spider-Man, because, well, it seemed like a thing to do. I know there was a big to-do on OMG, They kill Peter. Well, being the non-warning spoiler ass that I am, he doesn’t really. He has a mind out trippy moment, but doesn’t die. Or better say that the idea of Peter Parker doesn’t die, since he was Doc Oct too? I’m not sure completely what has been going on in the first part of the issue, and was kinda lazy to look it up, sorry. The whole clone thing is a little confusing to me, but whatever. I honestly hadn’t been reading the issues before, so I’m not sure why Doc Oct is super old and all that jazz, but the first story lead into what I felt was a much cooler part.

The issue really ties up the storyline, and then has a few short pieces to go along with it. My favorite is the now elderly Peter Parker talking to his Grandson about what happened after the series ends, such as his life with MaryJane, the birth of his children, and ends with him taking the kid on a web-sling tour of the city. I think one of the great things about comics, and moments like this one, is when you get to see the characters doing things like this, because it gives you the feel that these are normal people. ((This is something DC has forgotten. But I’m not gonna talk about them.)) To me, that was the real ending. He is finally given a chance to grow, and to be whatever he wanted with a sense of freedom. I loved it.

This is just to fun.

This is just to fun.

The Datenight story was cutesy and fun. I enjoy things that are really tongue-in-cheek, and I thought that it pulled it off well.
I will admit, I don’t know much about Spiderman and his Mythos, aside from the cartoon I can barely remember and those horrible Toby McGuire ((OR WHAT EVER THE FUCK HIS NAME IS. I’m Lazy and not gonna look it up.)) movies; but this was enjoyable. It was the first Spider-man Comic I ever picked up, and it made me want to check out the new series they are going to do.
I will say this though. I feel bad when I like something, because I feel like I don’t talk about it as much as I could. I mean, the art was good, the stories were well put together as far as I could tell. ((the first one I’m, not sure about just because I don’t have the issues to before it so I don’t know.)) It felt like a real ending, Peter has come to terms on what it means to be Spiderman and is ready to get on with whatever life has to throw at him. The writing was good, and it wasn’t plagued with what most comic book writing seems to be.
As an aside, I know I haven’t talked about my thoughts on Death in a Family, but my shop keeps getting shorted on comics coming in, so I am still waiting on a few issues. I did get to read Batman and Robin though, and that issue was a lot of fun.

Hawkeye 4-5-Crap

Edit: I don’t know what is up with word press and me, but it has been saying it has been posting my stuff then not. What is weirder is it like eats the post, after showing me it posted.
I wish I could say that picking up Hawkeye was my idea, and solely mine. But it wasn’t. It was a character my friend loved, and talked me into getting his first issue so she had someone to talk to about it. And so, I did. I picked up the first Hawkeye for my friend, and honestly, she only forced me to get issue one, and it has been a complete blast all the way through.
Since issue 6 was just like a Christmas episode, I’m jumping back to four and five, which was an arc called The Tape. The Tape that is so important, well, it’s just Hawkeye murdering some dudes. And Shield wants it back. So what does Clint do?
Go on a magical adventure where he gets to drive a cab and make some money on the side because he ends up losing his bags in the airport. He gets captured by a villain, Madame Masque, ((Who I know nothing about, because I am just now getting into Marvel.)) who ends up pulling a black visa out of his ass. This is just a page and written in a way that makes me feel as uncomfrotable as Clint in reading it. Now I would like to say that it was good writting, but that makes me feel dirty. I wish I was making that up but you all have already seen it on Friday. He ends up being saved by Kate Bishop, the other Hawkeye, but it is pretty fun to me how they both seem to just trip and fall into success.

This scene really needs no words. And yes you are seeing it again because I read it and it made me as uncomfortable as Clint.

But story telling stuff aside, ((Which is always fun. I would love to see Superman drive a cab, because that would be funny. But it will never happen.)) I think my favorite thing in Hawkeye, is Clint’s relationship with Kate. They are partners, not lovers, and it has an almost brother and sister feel to it. Which is awesome, because their relationship is real, and completely believable; I feel like it is one of the best written relationships in comics at the moment. They rag on each other, and you feel that they care about each other. It isn’t like some of the other relationships out there, when are just ready to crash and burn.

The other thing I like about the series, and most of the Marvel stuff in general is that it isn’t all life or death. Yes, if they don’t get the tape back, its bad because shit will go downhill, but really, it nice to know that everything is not about going over board and dealing with some of the small stuff too.

A Bonus Blog -Backlog And Batwoman

NOTe: This was an old Blog post that said it posted but pulled a dick move and didn’t, so I am reposting it now. And because I think there are a few points that need to get out into the world.

Because my Comic was closed for a bit, and they are pretty much the only pony in town ((Not completely true, but the other places are not my boys damnit)) I have a huge backlog of comics that I have to get through. And we are talking a few, we are talking about fifty.

So because of that, I’m a bit behind. But Fear not, I have something to Bitch about!

Batwoman has been dropping the ball for me so hard core that it is driving me mad. Her and Wonder Woman may be in the same comic, but they might as well be half way across the world from one another, because I honestly could not buy they were working together. There is a little text box Diana has about how she is not as brave as Batwoman and basically a shitty human being.

Hey, Remember when Wonder Woman kicked some serious ass and was willing to do what ever it took to get the job done? Where she was a strong female character who didn’t need a man to drag her around and have someone basically control everything that she did? Yea? How she was the one out of the Trinty to do whatever it took to save the world, including killing a man even if it ment the two men she saw as her best friends and allies may never talk to her again? Yea, me too, and I want to know where the fuck did she go?

The New 52 Wonder Woman is complete shit. Her own comic isn’t about her, it’s about the new gods and everyone else in the story. SHe isn’t strong or Brave, she is just there. She is a prop. And it pains me to say that. I love Diana. Or more of I loved what was there before they decided that her only use was to get in Superman’s bed and not leave it. That her only worth is just to be Superman’s fuck toy, and that she is weak and whimpy. Fuck, she feels that way in her own comic. And they wonder why she isn’t selling. They removed all that made her Wonder Woman there. I hate how that has become the most important thing in the Universe, is what is going in Wonder Woman’s vagina. It shouldn’t be. As I have said so many fucking times before, That should not be the corner stone of your universe is two characters and their fucking relationship. It is still written like they are friends, and really, it should have ended 2 issues ago.  It has no where to go, and the characters have no contrast with each other. Contrast in a romantic relationship is what makes it interesting for the viewer, the reader, what have you. No Contrast, no Drama. DC is trying to force drama because everyone is against it. Which makes it come off forced. But That is a blog post for another day. Because I’m still pissed about it.

And she is coming that way in Batwoman. And the other problem I have with it is that Batwoman has become to fucking worder. I have issue 14, and got it before my shop was closed down for two weeks, and I just just can’t get through it. It’s like someone is trying to pull my teeth out of my head. There are though speeches, and they are fucking speeches, that these two women have that go fucking no where. And it would be much more interesting to see these two women interact. I was excited at first because I thought the real Wonder Woman was going to be in there. She isn’t.

I have been making jokes to my Fiancee that blue boot Wonder Woman isn’t Wondy. She is a puppet made by Cicere to think she is Wonder Woman, and make everyone else think that too. And Red Boot Wonder Woman is really out there somewhere, and when she breaks free, she is gonna kick the shit out of Blue Boot Wonder Woman. I would say that is what DC is leading up for, but really, that is never going to fucking happen, because that would be creative. And DC doesn’t do creative. They do gimmiky and bullshit.

Marvel does, and that new Deadpool comic is going to be the greatest thing ever.
