So, isn't Spidey dating that comedian in the other comic? Has Peter become a two-timer now? Or is this just Dan Slott not caring what Chip is writing? Or the editors not doing their job?

Peter Parker, ladies and gentlemen, world class idiot and now louse. Is it any wonder why sales hover around fifty thousand units? Who wants to read about this guy?

Editors not doing their job, then.

Then it's a combination of Chip not being a good writer and whomever is editing both comics not doing a very good job. I'll give Slott credit for the slow burn regarding the Peter/Bobbi relationship.

Using sales figures as an argument is the lowest form of comics criticism.

And IIRC, they had one date that was a bust.

I never claimed I was high brow. ;p

Spider Man is Marvel's flagship character, he had a movie out this year. And yet in September he moved less than sixty thousand units. Who is to blame? The Twitter trolling, bot-blocking man himself, Dan Slott. Maybe if he spent less time attacking fans and more time figuring out what fans want (rather than claiming he gives us what we "need".) then maybe he'd be a better writer. And a better human being.

What the hell is wrong with Dan Slott, causing the book's sales to be so low that it's consistently Marvel's #1 selling ongoing superhero series -- hey, wait a minute...

Mockingbird and Spider-man???

Wow, I gotta say that actually makes sense. They have had mutual friends for a long time and have been hanging out more recently. I really kind of like this pairing and that is saying something because I am a die-hard MJ fan.

My only qualm is I liked Bobbi with that Lance Hunter guy from her recent series. Though admittedly that was more a casual fling-type situation, so it probably doesn't require a real breakup for her to get involved with Peter.

It certainly makes more sense than Peter and Carol

So my understanding is that some of the tech developed at Parker Industries was based on stuff Parker had made to fight various Spider-Foes. Wouldn't he have patents -- and thus some money -- from those?

Depends on whether the patents were held by Peter himself or by the company. Also, having the patent on some tech doesn't bring in money if nobody's paying to license the use of that tech, and Parker tech did just get a pretty bad rap recently.

PP: "I saved -millions- of lives! I kept murderous psychopaths from getting billions of dollars in resources that they would have used to cause even more mayhem!"

JR: "Sure, but people lost their jobs! Clearly you need your priorities sorted out."

PP: "That makes literally the -least- sense, but I am pathologically susceptible to guilt, so I guess I have to admit that you are right."

Oh, Joe: one of the few sane men in a world that hates heroes, and now you throw in with them.

That's the way responsibility works. You don't get a free pass just because of past good deeds. The Red Cross does all kinds of great good, but if they did something tomorrow that screwed over millions of employees, people would rightfully be upset.

But that wasn't a past deed, he's getting grief specifically because he "kept murderous psychopaths from getting billions of dollars in resources that they would have used to cause even more mayhem."

Am I the only one who thinks Alex Ross draws Peter to look like a young Martin Landau? I know on Scans_Daily, it's never just you. But no one has agreed or disagreed with me.

It's not that obvious in this issue's cover art.

I'm more struck by Pete in the interior art, being suddenly more baby-faced than he has ever been.
