Just recently read the book and while I enjoyed it, there where quite a few things about the book that I would really like to know.
1. Did Spider-man actually kill and didn't give a damn?
2. Spider-man hits JJJ, but in the next issue he's still supporting him?
3. JJJ ,despite having a punch right in the face, sure recovered very fast?!
Spider-man Reign was a pretty damn good book in my view.
Yes. It stoal way too many things from the Dark Knight Returns.
Yes. The set up could have been better.
And Yes. MJ's death was kinda of well...weird.
But I thought that the book really did capture the rationship between Peter and MJ in a really speical amazing why.
While the Dark Knight Returns was about being a Hero again, I thought that Reign went deeper into a Super Hero's mind and that a hero, despite pain and age, still lives along inside of us.
Oh and this thread is't about comparing the two by the way.
