Avenging Spider-Man #9

Writer: Kelly Sue DeConnick
Artists: Terry Dodson & Rachel Dodson

Spider-Man hangs out with Carol Danvers, who makes her debut as Captain Marvel a week before the start of her ongoing series. These two have been spending a lot of time together and could be that it's heading somewhere; it would be an interesting dynamic to be explored, not only because both are heroes and in the same team, also because he is younger than she is, and as far as I recall, we have not seen this in a high profile comics couple. The story itself is a breath of fresh air in the middle of the never ending event machine; just two friends hanging out and getting in trouble without it having to be the incident that changes things forever or the one that will make things never, ever to be the same again. The Dodsons do a good job with the art, although they have done better; the pencils seem a bit rushed. Edgar Delgado's colors really pop here, and visually, are the best part of the issue.
