Destroyer14's review of AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #677
I usually don't put my reviews of The Amazing Spider-Man on the Main page, but I decided to make an exception for this abomination of a comic. Come check out my review of this week's Spidey.
Spidey and Daredevil have a great history of team-ups. My personal favorite would be their team-up from the 90's show. That was my first ever DVD from that series, and my first glimpse of Daredevil. This comic has been hyped for a bit, Spidey and DD haven't teamed-up in awhile, so this was greatly welcomed. I haven't been too fond of the series lately, but even I was excited at the thought of these two teaming up. So I'm sad to say that this comic was one of the worst issues I've read in years.
I'm not even going to mention the story, about how Spidey thinks Black Cat is not guilty of an incident and goes to Daredevil for help. One thing I hate in comics is when Part One takes place in one series, and then Part Two takes place in another one, forcing the reader to buy an issue from a series he/she might not collect. Dan Slott takes off for this two-part event, in favor of Daredevil writer Mark Waid. My gosh, his portrayal of Spidey is the worst I have ever seen. Annoying and idiotic, it's just sad. When Black Cat shows up, he acts like a desperate fool. What is he, a teenager now? WHAT THE HECK IS THIS?
Daredevil might be the only good thing about this issue. Because everything else is just awful. The art makes Spidey look bad, the eyes on the mask is almost non-existent. This is the worst drawn Spider-Man I have ever seen. Daredevil looks good, I'll give it that. But I cannot get over at how awful Spidey looks. I'll take the cartoony Spider-Island art over this any day. It's just awful, does Marvel want to degrade Spidey? This is just awful. Black Cat is pretty much the same, so no complain there.
Overall, this is not only one of the worst Spidey comics I've ever read, it's one of the worst comics I've bought in years. The story itself is good, but Spidey's portrayal ruins it. I'm almost ashamed to call myself a fan. Like, I go out there and say I'm a huge fan of Spider-Man and that he's a great character, then the person goes into the comic book store, finds this week's issue to see an idiotic guy desperate for love. And no, I will not buy Part Two over at Daredevil. What a bad issue.
