Zeb Wells is really an underrated writer, and pretty much entirely due to him, Avenging Spider-Man's been a pretty fun book so far. Issue #5 was particularly good.

An antiquarian in Brooklyn has dug up one of the comics Steve drew when he was in art school, back before World War II, and reproductions of the pages ran in the Daily Bugle. Most of the Avengers are pretty amused, but Spider-Man's particularly interested, because the way he sees it, it's something he has in common with Cap.

They were both pretty geeky kids, but the way Cap sees it, the old comic pages are kid stuff. He compares it to playing with your first chemistry set, and Peter's response is that, well, he does still do that from time to time.

They go off and have a fairly routine mission fighting the Serpent Society, which has not been having a good year so far, and when they get back:

Yeah, this was quite possibly one of the best Spider-Man stories in a long, LONG time.

But an S_D post about this issue without posting the panel with Peter and Steve close together and Dat Spider Ass at the forefront? I am disappoint.

There where speech bubbles? Where?

(And when did Cap's boots get laces?)

stolisomancer honey, the speech bubbles could be the transcripts of a newly discovered Martin Luther King Jr. speech, and I'd still have noticed it! :D

I'm not quite sure how that was intended, so I shall choose to take it as a compliment!

It seems to be a fairly common reaction when meeting Cap



Though I agree that in Peter's case it's even more pronounced.

Forget gay subtext. I'm noticing Peter doesn't seem to understand/respect personal space...

...oh, and gay subtext :Pb.

From: [personal profile] darkknightjrk
Well, the whole idea is that Peter doesn't know Steve's behind him as he's making fun of it, then he turns around and bumps into him. So if anyone doesn't understand personal space, it's probably Steve...

Okay, that's fair. Although I stand by my opinion that somebody somewhere in this comic doesn't get/respect personal space :P.

So, a friend of his asks him to sign something, and he not only ignores it, he crumples up Peter's paper and throws it away? He really is being a jerk.

This is Captain America--he only cares about Liberty Bonds and dealing out justice against evil-doers like the Serpent Society.

I think he's just very, very embarrassed, and it's probably Steve's paper!
