    Brock as Venom? Isn't Mac still venom in Thunderbolts?

    Also, I like all the skrull crap.

    also i love the story right now too, but his name seems a bit lacking to me. Like if he were to attack and you would hear all these people scream "IiieeEEe!! ITS Anti-Venom!!1ones1!"

    or.. maybe its not even his name, but he is just announcing that he is against venom? like pro-life / anti-abortion type thing?

    w/e its my friday today i get a long weekend.

    :dunno:
    I've just given up on it really. I prefered my mature spiderman, and what little i've read in the first couple of issues after OMD hasn't given me much of a hope for the title.

    For now, i'll just avoid it as if it was the plague. :hsughno:

    I've been reading all the ASMs. It has its up and downs, The whole new Rogue Gallery is an interesting take. I also can't stand the way they are dragging out this whole The DB, Spider-Man is a serial killer thing. It's getting old. It's only a matter of time before Parker and MJ get back together. They've already hinted that MJ remembers what happened before OMD but Parker still doesn't seem to remember.

    You must've not been reading Nova.

    Because Nova is the best book in the 616 universe right now.

    I've been reading it but it takes so long for another issue. I honestly can't even remember what happened last issue.

    Nova is fucking awesome. On a side note, what's up with Kl'rt being in Nova and She-Hulk? Seems like how those will progress, one won't lead to the other.

    hey in this issue there were a few instances that Spider-man said that Osborn no longer remembers that Spidey is Peter Parker (1st instance on credits page near the beginning). Is that a direct reference to OMD?

    That's funny, because if i am not mistaken just this week (or was it last week?) Osborn sic'ed the Thunderbolts on him. Can't remember where though.
    Spiderman contunuity has been shot to fucking hell.

    Osborn explained that he knew Parker was close to Spider-man because of all the pics he takes of him and that it was the best way he (Osborn) knew of to get close to Spidey.

    NWTD seems like it could be pretty epic, how many issues is it supposed to run?

    i think people just wanna hate because its been so easy to hate on ASM. first of all cut it some fucking slack and give it a chance. Either that or just dont read it.

    It's not a matter of cutting it slack or just hating for hating it.

    You see, the problem with it is that it's been blown up to hell. There's no quality control and now that they've fucked everything up, they want to fix it with band-aids and other useless shit.

    Doesn't Osborn in Thunderbolts know? Did they say that in his book or anywhere else? Because there's been practically no talking about Spiderman or his shit changing anywhere else. Not to mention they've still not addressed his current situation in terms of anything during and post-civil war.

    It's not. I've been a massive Spiderman fan since day one. X-Men and Spiderman were the first books i ever bought, and i've loved it ever since JMS started his work on it. It's just fucking sad to see all that story that was developed go into the trashbin, simply because of one guys fucking opinion. These stories being told these days are mediocre. At best.
    Six months on, and very little has been told about what really has happened between OMD and BND and the current situation. And this whole fucking cock-tease with Mary Jane and Jackpot was just retarded.

    I gave it a chance post-OMD and it dissapointed me. I'll give it a few years to pick itself up from the gutter.
