The Amazing Spider-Man #648

The Amazing Spider-Man #648 - Comic of the Day
Is the Amazing Spider-Man squinting?
The lightest ink job ever on the webbing...I can deal with. The almost Hulked-out version of every superhero...some artist like the exaggerated look. The young looking old people...character interpretation. The over sized black outlining around Spider-Man's we have a problem.

Spider-Man Sunday - The Amazing Spider-Man #648

With one quick glance of The Amazing Spider-Man #648's cover I can tell I hate the Humberto Ramos version of Spider-Man. Spidey's eye's are bugging me like no other. Can Ramos really not see the problem? Does Ramos not have any friends that could say, "Hey Hummy, Webs looks good, but what's up with the extra large black section around his eye whites on his mask?" A good friend will tell it to you straight, and by the looks of this cover, Ramos may be going through some lonely times.

Fortunately, most of the comic of the day focuses on Peter Parker's struggle to look for a new place to live and a new job. Some of the characters look a little different from what I have seen over the course of the last couple of years, but for the most part Ramos does a fine job with the Spidey-verse.

The Amazing Spider-Man #648 is actually a pretty good read. Dan Slott provides readers with a nice new direction for Peter Parker and a comic book which takes more than a couple of minutes to flip through. I had to read this book at two different points in the day. It was taking longer than I thought and had to set it down till more of my precious time opened up. So yeah, my legs were getting tired on the toilet.
