The Week in Review

Sorry about not posting! First, I was too busy. Then, I was too sick. Then, I was too apathetic about what was going on in the storyline. I'm back now, though, and like NOTHING has happened in the past week.

07/06:
It's certainly not for the ratings, Jonah, since readership is most likely at an all-time low and will continue to be until something happens.

TIL: I like to think that Jameson is listening to a radio rather than watching a television in panel three.

07/07:Spider-Man should be well aware that his is watching, since she knew about this. With each passing day, my distaste for Maria Lopez becomes stronger.

TIL: Spider-Man is panel three, as he looks like he's having convulsions.

07/08:At least the art in the Sunday strip is better than average, and I actually found this strip kind of funny. Not only does Spider-Man reference the previous storyline, but someone actually thought it would be a good idea to capture Spider-Man's facial expression in the first panel in the bottom row. They tried to capture the facial expression of a man wearing a face-concealing mask. Which brings up the point that Spider-Man, as far as Maria knows, is ugly as sin underneath that mask. We know it's not true (he only looks like David Hasslehoff), but Maria doesn't.

TIL: The first panel in the bottom row.

07/09:Indeed, it WOULD be interesting to see how Peter answered...

TIL: It looks like Spider-Man is mentally contacting Mary Jane in panel three.

07/10:...if Peter actually answered and didn't just up and run away. That's not suspicious at all, Spider-Man.

TIL: Jonah's magic changing television. Either that, or he smashed it and had to buy a new one.

07/11:Now we're talking! Jonah Jameson is going to take Larry King on to see who gets to preside over the rest of the show! It's go-time! Not to mention the fact that it looks like someone is pointing a laser-gun at them. I'm sure all this mildly interesting stuff will be gone tomorrow.

Also, Spider-Man, she's a TV hostess... just take her down with some Hostess Fruit pies. (Link suggested for readers unaffected by abundant curse words.)

TIL: Old TV show host fights. OH YEAH.

Soooo... Spider-Man has been a superhero in the public spotlight for, oh, 40 years now... (yes, I realize that's real-world time, not comic-book time -- but in the comics, Spidey has gone from a teenager to a young adult at least)... and it's never occurred to him until just now that he might have to answer a reporter's question about his private life????????

How about a nice, snappy, "None of your business!" Or if you want to employ logic, "Sorry, I can't talk about my true identity, because all the crooks in the world would come after my loved ones"?

Instead, we get several days of cheesy suspense over a non-dilemma. Anything to avoid showing actual conflict.

Or he could have told her he was gay! That would have been amusing!
