Looks good.
I'm looking forward to reading this.

This is my favourite Marvel comic at present. Beautiful art, a nice mixture of intrigue and humour and a great team dynamic.

I was mad in the last issue when Ock was taking those backward steps again. I'm actually looking forward to Cage and Jess beating him down.

Doc Ock has the right ideas, he just goes about executing them the wrong way. Every time he takes 1 step forward, he takes 3 huge steps back.

Gonna be a sad day when Peter gains control again...smh
UltimateWarrior - 1/20/2014, 4:28 AM
Spidey-Ock will be remembered as one of the best Spiderman runs ever. It's really well written, and sets up all sorts of story options when Peter returns.

That little mulatto baby's been an infant for the past 10 years. Is her super-power to be in diapers for the rest of her life? o.O

@tetrehedr she a baby this a comic book who ages. Why emphasize race not called for
MiltonSaint - 1/20/2014, 6:28 AM
@tetrahedron Mulatto is rude. I know a lot of people aren't aware of that but it's what people call us to remind us we're an abomination of some sort
DatScarletPimPerNeLL - 1/20/2014, 7:50 AM
Why is there an old hipster Kevin Smith on the second cover?
monkeyballs - 1/20/2014, 7:56 AM
That variant cover is butt-ass ugly!
monkeyballs - 1/20/2014, 7:57 AM
Quickfire has some massive tits! NOthing screams espionage like massive tits.
Excel - 1/20/2014, 8:02 AM
@milton ur a product of ur parents attraction to one another. The only abomination is ignorance. Don't pay them any mind
Pheezmatic - 1/20/2014, 8:07 AM
@DatScarletPimPerNell Thats the Editor Tom Brevoort homie lmao
marvel72 - 1/20/2014, 8:23 AM
not a bad title,loving the artwork.
beane2099 - 1/20/2014, 9:00 AM
1) That variant cover is awful.

2) I can't think of anyone better to lay the beat down on Spidey-Ock than Luke Cage and Jessica Jones.
Bl00dwerk - 1/20/2014, 9:12 AM
Never heard of Quickfire before. Looks cool...
DatScarletPimPerNeLL - 1/20/2014, 9:16 AM
Well jeanclaudevandammit. My bad. 'Preciate that Pheezmatic.
CaptainObvious - 1/20/2014, 10:36 AM
It's almost as if the writers at Marvel hate Otto as Spider-Man and want to make him suffer before his time as Spider-Man ends.
GUNSMITH - 1/20/2014, 10:55 AM
QUICKFIRE...NOW THATS A HOT ONE
lordhaterig88 - 1/20/2014, 11:01 AM
Why would any superhero have glass on his face wtf

Yeah, might have to make that chick in the Marvel Heroic RPG...
damntree - 1/20/2014, 5:18 PM
So Jessica Jones got the drop on Spider-Man? Is that what I'm supposed to believe? Do they have any competent writers or editors at Marvel?
Shadowmaster35 - 1/20/2014, 10:13 PM
KICK HIS TEETH IN JESSICA!!!
norseman79 - 1/20/2014, 10:31 PM
Agree with damntree.

Spidey would curbstomp both of them.

Sigh...

Greg Land is, unfortunately, a fraud. He has made a living off the same mentality I had as a budding artist. You learn to draw people from magazines. It's why so many men and women look are flexing and posing for no reason. Musculature is learned from body building magazines, hair is learned from fashoion photography, etc. But Greg Land never outgrew this technique. It's fine to use life as a template. Alex Ross is a brilliant artist, and he has depicted how he will pose in a photograph to see how shadow falls, etc. But when you can crack open a NEW book illustrated by Greg Land and say, "Isn't that a picture of Marilyn Monroe?" He has blatantly used photos of Triple H for Wolverine, Terry Crews for Luke Cage, and many times a woman is carrying on a conversation and, for no reason, has her hand on her ass, the other running through her hair, and she's winking. Perhaps this doesn't bother everyone, but this is a major title for a continuously expanding company that I love, and I don't find this sophmoric approach worthy of representing it.

Um in reality Spidey would beat the shit out of Cage & his wife, but since that's Spidey-Ock. I approve lol
darklighter1 - 1/21/2014, 2:29 PM
Hate this new trend of making She Hulk look like China from the WWE. Nothing grosser than a bulked out woman that looks like a dude. Understand it's more practical and probably realistic but come on!!
Deadpoolio - 1/21/2014, 2:42 PM
Too bad they didn't knock the Peter back into Parker sooner. lol
Bark4Soul - 1/21/2014, 4:24 PM
Haha all these people who were quick to troll that Spidey ock would KILL Marvel are now saying "Man it sucks Peter has to come back" lol, this is why other countries hate us....so quick to voice a stupid opinion
