Remember that time I was going to write a blog about comic books?
Marvel resumed sending me my subscription of The Amazing Spider-Man. Of course, it’s now Superior Spider-Man. Which, despite what the title may lead you to believe it’s not superior in the least. Yes, that’s a large chunk of fanboy rage talking. Cut me some slack. I’m a nerd.
I was reading a review for Superior Spider-Man 13. I like to Google Superior Spider-Man and see if I’m the only person still upset about the whole Spider-Ock thing. I waited far too long to post about the whole issue 9, second killing of Peter thing, so I’ll leave it be.
