A LAZY look at Dark Reign The List: The Amazing Spider-Man #1

Writer: Dan Slott. Pencils: Adam Kubert.

Score: 6 out of 10.

What I Thought(In 150 words or less!): Meh. This was an OK story, but it went a long way in exposing one of the main problems with the entire Dark Reign storyline, Norman Osborn... Osborn was the absolute worse choice for the big villain behind the entire DR storyline, and Spidy pretty much makes my point for me during this comic. Osborn is a criminal. A big one. Always has been and always will be. The idea that everybody in the Marvel Universe loves him because he's wrapped in the American flag is just plain ludicrous. Anyway, the art was good, but Spidey was Spidey, and since I'm currently on my "I hate Spidey" kick, he annoyed me more then anything. When you start rooting for Norman Osborn to wipe the smug look off Spidey's face, you know it's time to put the comic down.Come on, blast him! You know you want to!!!


  1. I feel almost the same way about this comic. A lot of people raved about this issue, but in my mind, it's just okay. I liked Kubert's work, but I expected a little more from the Spidey action sequences.

  2. Yeah, this was an OK, but definitely not great comic. I can see how diehard Spidey fans could have liked it, but like I said, I'm just not very interested in Spidey's character right now. As far as I'm concerned, the Spidey I knew and loved was killed off after the events of One More Day.
