I’m still interested in Dan Slott’s Superior Spider-Man series, despite his apparent gleeful evolution into a Pantomime villain for the internet age. The series, which apparently sees a new character get into the Spider-Man outfit and make it “darker and edgier”, was met by shock and horror, albeit shock and horror and fascination. Slott seems to be revelling in his new status as a villain, if the cover image for issue #2 is any indication. And actually, I bet he’d make for an excellent Widow Twankey. Can you just imagine it now? That’d be great.
I’m probably alienating all non-Brits right now.
Anyway, here’s the cover for issue #2 of Superior Spider-Man. If you listen carefully, you can faintly hear the sound of Slott, Ryan Stegman, Edgar Delgado and Steve Wacker cackling malevolently in the distance, followed by a big band going “DUN DUN DUNNNN” and a crowd hissing in delight.
