"There is a sequence in "Superior Spider-Man" #19 where Octavius searches for a memory from Parker's experiences. In doing so, a number of classic scenes are reimagined with the original Doctor Octopus' head (complete with bowl cut) on Spider-Man or Peter Parker's body. Stegman does more than simply swap out heads in his drawings. He completely delivers fresh takes on those scenes. Some are quite comical, others scary, but every single one of them is well-constructed and true to the spirit of Spider-Man. At the end of that sequence, Stegman also delivers a visual that is certain to stir up a little buzz."
There's also a direct juxtapostion of Stegman's visual to the memory scenes which explains why it happens. Excellent scripting on the part of Slott and Stegman!
You should probably be buying the issues, because it isn't really a 'written for the trade' kind of book. Important stuff happens pretty much every issue so you always get your money's worth.
Seconded. It's not really a tradewait title, it works as a monthly serial in a way few comics of the last few decades have. If had to compare it to anything, I'd go with 80's Claremont where there was an obvious longform plot going, but every issue had its own thing going.
