cyberghostface: (Spidey & MJ)
[personal profile] cyberghostface posting in [community profile] scans_daily
So, final issue of "Brand New Day". There's a going-away party for Harry, and everyone's in costume (so, yes that's MJ down there, not Jackpot). Poor Pete's having commitment issues with Joe Quesada's daughter Carlie Cooper.

Yay, I still don't care about Spider-man!

I do like the Dr. Octopus baby. Very cute.

It'd make sense if it was actually Felicia. A little. Maybe.

...

OK, you know what? I try. I'm not a fanatical Pete/MJ shipper. They're great together but it's not a deal breaker for me. I try to be open-minded. And I try to read the current Spider-Man titles through here (not for piracy's sake, but I live in Taiwan, comics from the states aren't easy to come by,) to find even one little iota of something likable in them.

This was a character that I worshiped for my entire childhood... and I can't feel anything for him, anymore. He's just not there. It's all so... depressing. I come home from work to this, and I'm depressed now.

Seriously. Seeing his books like this? It's literally depressing. I'm done.

The Gwen Stacy clone is still out there somewhere, isn't she? Any reason she couldn't pull a Harry and claim her death was faked, pick up where she left off?

Look, I've written fanfic where Bucky jerks off over Captain America's bloated and fish-nibbled corpse, and I am still offended on fanfic's behalf by the comparison to this tripe.

Even most sparkly twelve year olds have figured out writing a story where the canon love interest has her marriage to the hero retconned out and a new girl retconned into their past and everyone lining up to tell New Girl she's ~perfect~ for the hero and Previous Love Interest would've ditched him anyway, and ~~~be my girlfriend, New Girl!~~~... anyway, even most teen fanbrats are dimly aware that's not great writing.

Dear Dan: you are writing a book about a man whose philosophy is responsibility. I know how laughable that sounds now, but that makes all the difference when your character's ex blames HIM for their break-up, when it was very clearly the E-i-C's fault.

Additionally, this artist has a horrible problem with human anatomy. Chins you could open bottles with...gigantic eyebrows...and that last page. Look at the size of her hands and her head. You could fit her skull INSIDE Peter's. From the waist up, she looks, I dunno, 14.

...How old IS Carlie Quesada, anyhow? Are there any recent pictures of her?

At first, I was like, "crap, that's ugly art" from the first panel, then

"well, it's okay, it's growing on me"

and then

"AWWW Doc Oc baby, gotta love the irony there"

and then

"Aw, well, that's really sweet, with Carlie"

and then Carlie's face creeped me out when Peter asked her to be his girlfriend

and then

"rightest." :|
Aaaand that kinda ruined it.

But story wise, it's not so bad anymore.

From: [personal profile] skalja
Why is everyone dressed like a superhero? Does the Marvel universe not have any other form of pop culture? [Retracted on closer reread - Arabic Stereotype Guy in a fez (ew) and Peter is dressed as JJJ.] Not to mention, dressing up your baby boy as the supervillain who tried to murder him for parts is really @#$%ed up.

The scene with MJ isn't that bad, actually. Except that it feels way more Peter/MJ shippy than Peter/Carlie, which ... guys, if you want to sell us on Peter/Carlie (pretending that's gonna happen anytime soon), you really need to NOT keep playing up the "Peter and MJ are star-crossed lovers separated by tragic circumstances" thing. It's not helping.

I mean, I'm not sure I'm actually COMPLAINING, given that this just reinforces my believe that OMD is just not gonna last, but still. Just saying.

So basically we have a whole scene that reminds us why MJ is so great (and she gives him "permission" to date Joe Q's daughter Carlie) as well as a reminder of Felicia by having Peggy Hill Carlie dress her as her and us this is supposed to convince us that character is "The One" for Peter to the exclusion of said MJ and Felicia? If so, the writers are doing a piss poor job at selling it.

Do the Spidey People create this stuff in a bubble? They have to know Carlie is going over like a lead balloon.

I believe the phrase TVTropes used for this situation was "shilling the Wesley."

[BTW is anyone else not getting to TVTropes? It keeps rerouting me to google.com. I know I was a naughty person recently and not allowed to edit but not letting me LOOK at the site seems a bit peevish-- though probably better for my web browsing habits.]

Also the art just makes me wince. If it was some cheap and cheerful horror comic of the 1950s I might expect this level of crudeness-- and in that case the writing might just be fun enough to carry me past the art.

To give him a girlfriend ages the character! What, next you want to marry them? Maybe tease the idea of a child!?
