LOL

Maybe my warped fangirl mind is imagining the homosexual vibes but nonetheless, I'm intrigued. :D

I'd like to see Wolvie and Hulk be roomies

Spidey and Torch been doing the bromance thing since the 60's

I always thought it was strange, yet funny how much of a joker Spidey is when fighting villains, but always gets owned by Johnny Storm

I didn't know I was into Archie comics until I saw this preview.

Man, that is some shitty ass artwork...

The artwork is ok, and spidey team-ups have been going down since before I was born. The more things cjange the more they stay the same.

@SugarYumYum

You're not the only one imagining the gay overtones in that preview (oddly enough, I have a fanboy mind than a fangirl to notice this much yaoiness).

Either way, I smell a potential sitcom idea as good as . . .

Having Johnny for a roommate would be awesome.

This will make a tv sitcom. 'Two-and a half heros'

Liking Dragotta's artwork here. His Peter looks very Ditko.

That was cool. Always loved Jonny and Parkers relationship.

Why does Marvel hate Spidey so much??? Ever since that OMD bull they've been turning him into more and more of a wuss. Give my Pete his balls back!

JUST.KICK.HIM.OUT.

First Deadpool, now Johnny...I can't help but think the publication teams on Spider-Man just flat out hate the guy. He gets married, suddenly he's not married anymore. Aunt May dies...oh wait, no she doesn't!

Poor Pete. Thank god he's not a real guy. He might have grown up to be the Unabomber. :(

Still, I'm sure hilarity will ensue, as well as a swell of homoerotic undertones. More power to 'em.

Yeah I'm not digging it.

@ LoudLon: I was going to say the same thing. The story looks like it could be decent but the art just comes off as lazy. Seems a consistent trend with a lot of comic book artists these days.
imnotwearinghockeypants - 4/22/2012, 11:29 AM
Why not just invent new characters for this type of story? I might be interested if it WASN'T Spiderman and Human Torch.
HalEl - 4/22/2012, 12:27 PM
I kindof like the "team" they've got going with HT and Spider-Man, the double hot head aspect is fun and it makes sense because they're of similar age.

Don't think they should've brought Johnny back so soon but I may just check it out for the art, really diggin these panels.
