Out of a Job?

This is classic Spider-Man, right here. Cracking wise, doing some good, hanging upside down. The only thing that's missing is him webbing up that guy who looks like a more muscle-bound Weasel with worse hair. While I like that the strip is actually good right now, it sort of makes my job as a commentator a little bit unneeded. So do I hope for the strip to get terrible again, or do I hope that it stays moderately decent? I honestly don't know. Also, can anyone read that thing that looks like an e-mail address between the second and third panels? I can't make it out.

TIL: The burly thug in panel three. Or should I say the burly thug not in panel three? Since when does this strip do artistic flourishes like that?

Okay, so now the cops will come around the corner, see Spider-Man with the old lady's purse, and figure he's continuing his Reign of Terror?

I'm hoping it stays good. I've never read a real superhero comic before. This comic strip has never really counted as one because it's terrible, but now I might know what reading an actual superhero comic is like! Not a "watch TV oh and go on GOOGLE oh and WHINE about it" comic.

"I'm a spider-man fan, Stan." That's what I'll say if I ever meet him.
