I mean, Marvel's trying to cash in on a trend, I get that. And honestly, I've really enjoyed Spider-Gwen and the Gwenpool Holiday Special was a lot of fun, so the quality is there. But I have a feeling that pushing multiple Gwen-ized characters into ongoing series is going to speed up the trend's demise.

What the frak. That was my reaction. This looks bizarre, moving on.

If it's anything like the shorts and the special so far, it will be. And it's the same creative team, so!

I mean, even if it's all stemming from a cutesy cosplay-friendly mash-up design, it is a fairly clever concept (she's a comics fan originally from "our" world, giving her a fun perspective and reason for the Deadpool-esque fourth-wall breakage) that's aimed at a market that a lot of comics still don't do much for, so that's all good in my books.

I do worry that they're going to overdo the attempts to monetize every variant cover that gets a reaction online and kill their natural appeal, though. But, y'know... it's not like comics has a history of running natural trends into the ground for an immediate cash-in. And I'd rather see this than a 14th Avengers title at this point.

Not really sure where the anger about this is coming from, personally.

Its times like this I wish Marvel comics all crashed and burned. Before the Disney buy out weren't they on the verge of declaring bankruptcy? It was essentially the movies and Disney that saved them.

Because Marvel's obsession with over saturating the market with wacky/zany titles is annoying and the books really aren't as good as people think. F*ck "fun", it's just an excuse to have characters quip memes that get posted on Tumblr obsessively by the gullible clickbait SJW sheep they pander to.

Butthurt fanboys are upset that comics are catering to a special interest group that isn't them.

They're so cute when they're stroppy.
