  1. Amazing Spider-Man #185: It's a first read for me! (Dang it, Delvin!)
    Cover: 3.
    I like it, but it's not wow-ing me. Plus inaccurate. It's not "the shadow of Spider-Man" that caused his problems, it's Peter being DUMB! Unless... before getting powers, Peter was totally into school and wouldn't have missed a class on his life. Pre-spider Peter would have taken the stupid gym class!
    Also, what's the FitBit score for webswinging? Asking for a friend.
    Comic: 2
    Fighting White Dragon was ok, but Spidey should have said "go home, son!" And the graduation story didn't deliver emotionally. It wasn't funny/dramatic/tragic. I just was shaking my head. So if that was the desired reaction, Mission Accomplished!

    X-Men #114: It's a re-read for me. I binge-read the early Claremont issues shortly after getting the Marvel Universe App, and I ain't sorry! It was awesome!
    Cover: 4
    Byrne gives a super-moody cover, and makes me want to pick up the issue to find out if the X-Men are *really* dead or not, so it did its job!
    Comic: 3
    As a wise man once said, sometimes you have to eat the filler. But good filler all the way. Not an issue to be skipped. And dang Storm. The Thighs are Right!

    Thanks, Crusaders!
