Typically, I’m all for change, especially in comics. The status quo needs to be refreshed now and again to keep things interesting. That said, I’m kind of skeptical about the new Spider-Man outfit. My biggest concern is the obvious: the neon-colored spider emblem and eyes. Eh. Upon reading Dan Slott’s plans for the wall-crawler, which are the following “Peter Parker has stepped up. He’s grown. He’s become the Peter Parker we’ve always hoped he was going to be. This company, with Peter’s inventions and Peter’s gumption has gone to new heights,” I have mixed feelings. Sure I like to see Peter finally realize his potential, but on the other hand, part of his everyman-character is that things don’t work out for him, in such a way, that he’s too distracted to reach that potential. Oh well, I can’t have it both ways. I’ll hope for the best; I’m sure I’ll enjoy the Amazing Spider-Man series. Hopefully the neon isn’t permeant. Though as a Alex Ross enthusiast, it’s hard for me to complain about the artwork.
