The newspaper strip fired a shot at Slott and Marvel on Sunday. Peter leaves MJ in charge of Ronan the Accuser's unconscious body so he and Rocket can head into the city to battle the Kree Sentry. Rocket tells Peter his mate is quite a catch and Peter responds with "I never could understand why so many superheroes stay single"

And loads more MJ variants on the way in June.

Whenever Dan says "never happening", please just don't use one particula word from that sentence.

Saw it (there's also another one with MJ as X-23, with a claw-scratching of her and Peter's name in a heart -- with Spidey himself in the background).

Wonder how the acolytes will explain stuff like this.

Full Marvel June Solicits

http://www.newsarama.com/33666-marve...citations.html



Hmm...interesting. While Conway has said in the past Peter and MJ will have disagreements but will always emerge from their troubles as a unified whole...I can see maybe Annie coming out of this with Mommy issues, Venom kidnapped her in the original mini-series and it gave her nightmares for eight years. Not sure if she had the same experience in this reality.

If Venom's alive here, I doubt the miniseries incident with him happened, although I could be wrong.

The story looks interesting, but I'm a little worried that the circumstances that get MJ with Venom could make her look bad (like she chose to use it despite knowing what a bad idea it was or something). So, I hope it's good and I think Conway has a fair chance of making it work based on the series so far.

The cover artwork is good, if nothing else.

Had a lot of fun with RYV.

Peter doesn't like the Spider-Fam song, which we know in our own world as the Spider-Pig song from The Simpsons Movie.

MJ and Peter are confirmed to be in their thirties, and Harry is definitely dead.

Betty's getting a lot to do, and boy howdy Normie gets more like his supreme schemer granddaddy every issue. Looking forward to his long game, and I hope RYV last as long as it takes to tell it.

Letters page was good too..with the assistant editor letting us know what a joy it is to work on a book with the marriage. What was that Slott said about the interns of tomorrow not being interested in the marriage today? Yeah, more bunkem, I bet he reads these things in full before they come out and goes off and says the exact bloody opposite to rile fans up

Glad that some of that stuff was nailed down, esp. what had happened to Harry and a start at addressing why Normie was in charge of the company.

Yeah, should be interesting. Worst case scenario (if RYV gets axed before it's time), do you think it'd be better to have a quick wrap-up to the "Project G" story to fit it within the scope of the series, or just leave the whole series as incomplete without risking making a botch job of changing gears too late.

I think "no one" is interested (and that "everyone" wanted the marriage gone) is just hyperbole; probably best to read it as Slott doesn't think anyone calling the shots for 616 is interested in a reinstatement and doesn't see that changing. Either way, it's really not his or our call.

Liked the issue overall, although I'm reminded of why I like decompressed comics; the story seemed to move too quickly. Did like that the seemingly one-off story ties into bigger stuff and wasn't just "filler." Also like that the replacement artist managed to capture the look and style that Stegman set with the first four issues.

Marvel do hate to leave loose ends in doomed comics, they always try to give something closure. I could see maybe an abrupt two-part wrap-up if it ever gets axed.

But it's best we don't speculate on RYV's prospects just yet. I want to really savor what we have right now.

I think I'd prefer closure (at least what we have would be something of a complete story in and of itself), but fair enough to not worry about how it'll end when it's still tracking to stay around for awhile.
