I could make a few inappropriate jokes here.

Marvel Adventures: Spider-Man V2 #20

Marvel Comics (January, 2012)

WRITER: Paul Tobin
COLORS: Sotocolor
LETTERER: Dave Sharpe
EDITOR: Tom Brennan
SENIOR EDITOR: Stephen Wacker
 
 STORY 1
PENCILER: Matteo Lolli
INKER: Terry Pallott
 
STORY 2
PENCILER: Rob Di Salvo
INKER: Victor Olazaba

In the first story, the Sandman gets bold about his plans to rob a bank, as Spidey & Chat try to figure out how to deal with him this time. In the second story, The Blonde Phantom calls Spidey in when the Red Ghost and his super-apes start scamming people.

What they got right: Chat returns! I like how we actually see Peter and Chat trying to work out how to deal with Sandman, coming up with different plans. We also have a side-bit about spoilers that adds not just fun but a bit of life to the characters While I still want full-length stories back I don’t think this story would have worked full-length.

What they got wrong: Running a fortune-telling scam for money? That seems rather beneath the Red Ghost.

Recommendation: A fun comic that’s worth picking up, but I really want this to get back to the comic it was when I started picking it up.

At least the CSI team can take the day off.

A would be comic writer looking to organize his living space as well as his thoughts. So I have a blog for each goal. :)
