Newsarama has previews for the conclusion of Amazing Spiderman: American Son.





The art looks good. I wish to see Marko Djurdjevic version of this, though.

I thought I was going to be disappointed with the story, and so far it exceeds that. It's not great, but it has been solid. I wonder how Norman knew Pete wasn't Venom.

I have an idea about that. Norman knows Spiderman well enough that he was expecting a venom-switch at some point, and had safeguards built in to let him know when Pete tried it. Maybe Mac has a tag under his skin like a pet bunny, or maybe Norman just knows Pete's mannerisms well enough to figure it out when he pulled it off.

Harry's legs make my eyes hurt. Has one massive calf and I guess the other is folded but it's folded really really well...

Not only that, but the whole leg looks about 6" short.

Thats one ugly suit of armor. Nearly as bad as 'Iron Cap' was.

Man, that armor reminds me so much of Iron Cap. 90s didn't stay gone long, did they?

Though that said, I think it looks kinda cool. Different strokes...

I think it works in a Sonic Soldier Borgman kindof way but the artist isn't really utilizing its qualities. A suit like that needs to be rendred lovingly corny as an actual suit (not just lines over a figure drawing) to achieve maximum coolness.

first glance, I thought it was USAgent. he still hanging around in Mighty Avengers, or did he go back to Canada to continue hunting draft dodgers?

I think he's still in Mighty... at least he was last I checked.

Weirdly enough, I hate American Son's armor less than Iron Patriot's.

Really, it's hard to distribute Red, White, and Blue on a costume well. White tends to draw the eye considerably. This design, when he's standing straight, goes SEE MY CROTCH AND ABS. Maybe if it was more of a metal color and less white, it'd look better.

The surreal roundedness of the fake muscles just destroys my eyes. I keep seeing it as a guy with metal glued to him and stupidly colored metallic tights.

...However, WTF is with the random orange bit on Harry's helmet? The stripes on his feet? The matte eagle kinda works... and the placement of the white isn't so horrific as it is in some drawings of Iron Patriot. I will say one good thing about the random orange: it puts a focus on the face. Which... well, is not a bad thing.

...

...it cut off the end, but okay.

This one's okay. But nobody ever draws it like that. And I still don't quite like it.

I mean, take Captain America's costume. That thing is a triumph of color distribution and flag imagery. (Even if the headwings are slightly random, but I like them as far as the silhouette and breaking up the solidity of the color around his head go.)

...but yeah, ramble ramble design ramble ramble.

Ahem, sorry. Rambled.

Wonder Woman pulls it off okay. Maybe the Osborns just need to slip into some one piece swimsuits?

Yeah, it's much easier to pull off on such a small costume, though.

...and really, one of the designs for Iron Patriot looked like a one-piece with big boots and gauntlets and BLINDING WHITE skin in-between. The white and the color distribution really looked particularly awful on that one.

By breaking it up with yellow and skin.

This looks like it fell out of a 90s comic book and fell into the hands of someone who did a decent clean-up job. Two fairly well drawn guys fighting surrounded by a ridiculous number of effects.

Also, based on the logistics of gravity and how the human body presumably works, Harry is about to break his spine.

This looks like an old issue of Bloodstrike.

I have two Worse Case Scenarios.

1. Normie has a control function/ kill switch on the suit, it would stupid not have one, even for a villain.
2. Have the suit blow up, killing Harry, and placing the blame on Spider-Man.

Either way Harry is going to be screwed big time.

This is where Harry dies tragically, whether Norman buys it or not. I can smell it from here.

That's my bet too.

Yeah, the American Son armor is pretty terrible.

Are those flashback panels from an old issue or new?

I have a feeling this fight scene is going to make my eyes hurt.
