Amazing Spider-Man: When 1+1=0
Comic Reviews for week ending 4/23/2023
Good morning, my friend,
The current state of Spider-Man comics is taking up a lot of my headspace this week due to the release of ASM #24. Marvel’s promised a “big shock” in the upcoming issues 25 and #26, but #24 has plenty for longtime fans of the Peter/MJ romance to be unhappy about.

This week’s Op-Ed takes a look at the up-to-the-minute state of
Amazing Spider-Man, how the title reached this point of divisiveness among readers, and hopefully presents a nugget or two of lessons informing comic creators about what not to do.
[Op-Ed] Amazing Spider-Man: When 1+1=0
Are you an Amazing Spider-Man fan? Have you been keeping up with the latest run by Zeb Wells and editor Nick Lowe? What do you think of the latest developments?
Next up, our crack writing team took a break from fun lists about comics and superheroes to write an interesting guide about one of Marvel’s most popular characters and one of his most-asked questions.
Give it a read and leave a comment with your thoughts.
The Ultimate Guide: Can Deadpool Die?
Last but not least, I had the privilege of sitting in on the Comics Aficionados live stream to talk about (of course) Amazing Spider-Man, James Gunn’s development on Superman: Legacy, and much more.
