Avenging Spider Man #10

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

Spider-Man and Captain Marvel's campy adventure in Boston concludes with a KA-PAW! Thanks to his smart mouth, sometimes it is easy to forget that Peter Parker is a very smart guy; this quality is brought to the forefront -albeit in a somewhat humorous way; meanwhile, Carol Danvers shows what a great strategist and leader she is. DeConnick writes both characters as if she has been doing it for years. Even though the conclusion is kind of a buzzkill, the overall story is bubbly and more important, fun. The Dodsons match the mood with crisp and popping artwork, while Edgar Delgado's colors make everything look vivid and fresh, with that nice sky blue being the recurring theme of the adventure. The epilogue between Peter and Carol proves to be a nice piece of characterization, that leaves the reader longing for more of this modern Bonnie and Clyde. Nice story!

  1. If there was to be a serious relationship between Carol x Peter, it will likely happen outside of Earth-616. I would rather see them at the "Pals" level than to see it became a Hawkeye x Spider-Woman type relationship. In addition to Peter's relationship with Carol, it would be cool to see his heroine relationship applied to Black Widow, She-Hulk, Psylock, Silver Sable, and Jessica Drew. All of them would be good alternates to the Black Cat. Perhaps Clint should go after Felicia as his next conquest.
