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.

That is some of the best art by Yu I've ever seen.

I loved this so much. I really enjoy quiet moments between friends mixed in with butt kicking!

I cannot believe I forgot to pick this up. I must remedy to that. *Flies away*
Or I'll fly away when daylight comes back. Yes, that's a good idea.

I remember reading previews of Avenging Spider-Man, thought them funny, and then my goldfish memory struck again.

Wait, the Avengers know SPidey's face now... not going to question how they forgot? Or how Jarvis missed his chance with May? I know the "feeble minded spell" was broken when Pete went on that air with his powers but not when he unmask to the FF, but they would remember not being able to remember... Or did they all address that already?

Strange and Tony helped him with the "spell" so I would imagine everyone in the Avengers knew that he caused them to forget.

Looking a little Andrew Garfield there, Spidey. Has he looked this way for the other issues?

On another note, I did a double take when I saw the dedication at the end of the last scan. Then I wibbled inside. The name initially drew me off, but now I'm thinking that I should pick up an issue.

There where speech bubbles? Where?

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

It seems to be a fairly common reaction when meeting Cap

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

Yeah, that seemed odd to me, I've always worn a watch and will continue to do so.

Funny this comes up, I was going through some old Captain America issues for my forthcoming Serpent Society post, and Steve making a living as a comic artist was an ongoing subplot. Nice to see it addressed here.

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 like this. Actually... I think I saw this at the comic shop and bypassed it... so I think I'll be making a trip back for a copy. It's cute!
