I expected way more
This is the new beginning of something brand new and something we wanted to come from a lot of time.Dan Slott and Ryan Stegman deliver us Superior Spider-Man,the changed Spider-Man and I am not going to keep it a secret because I think you already know,the new Spider-Man is Doctor Octopus.This is indeed something new and really interesting and it will be a fun ride.
The thing I really want to say here that I most liked was definitely the way Slott pointed out and shown us how smart is Otto and he just destroyed the Sinister Six with his brain.It was a good way to show that if you are ready for every single attack and have the brains of Otto and Pete together it means that the bad guys will be screwed.And here the victims were the new Sinister Six.A team that we haven't seen for a while and I love the supervillain group that wants to destroy Spidey and these new members were interesting enough to be the first guys that Otto will fight.They were treated quite nice and they weren't the biggest punching bag but they were actually pretty humiliated in the end.
I have to say that I love Ryan Stegman and in this issue he just made a huge jump for his career.The artwork in this was just beautiful and to see Spidey and Shocker drawn so well was really cool for me.His style is amazing and it is kinda cartoonish which I like.The action scenes were nice and those facial expressions by Otto were just hilarious.I love the guy and I will love anything he does.
The issue was supposed to be a good jumping on point for new readers but no such thing was in this book.To actually enjoy and read this book you have to read ASM #698-700.Those issues are essential for what happens in this and if you don't know then things aren't that easy.Also this is just a random Spidey story but with someone else in Peter's body.The change isn't that big and you can't actually feel it until the end.The end was something I expected but not that fast.I knew that Peter would return but not in the first issue since Otto is Spider-Man.It felt forced and too early and that bugged me rally much.It had sense in it but it would've been better if Peter's spirit wasn't actually shown in that page.
The issue is a start of something new and fresh and it has potential but it doesn't start that well.It had it's good moments but it didn't feel like there was something really big going on.
