This issue is exactly why I started reading Avenging Spider-Man...the ridiculousness is there. I chuckled so many times it was crazy and it is nice to see that Peter still struggles with his high school years in his dreams. Oh...and did I mention that this week and next Spidey is teamed up with Deadpool?
Deadpool's silliness is pushed directly into Spidey's dreams where Deadpool is trying to help wake him from his nightmare. Shinick shows the reader different floors in Spidey's dreams and the wild things that are going on in them. We get everything from miniature Wolverines to goth Morbius as well as Spider-Hams webslinging around.
Spidey and Deadpool are forced to find the person controlling his dreams from within to escape and they do so in a very comedic way. There are a lot of one liners, plenty of bullets flying and a lot of punches happening. In the end we learn that the person who was controlling Spidey was Deadpool himself who was using Spidey to help break Hypno-Hustler out of jail because Hypno-Hustler supposedly knows a way to kill Deadpool....
This team-up will continue next month which should be fun. I love the interactions between Spidey and Deadpool and I can honestly say that this issue was fun to read. I was smiling when I set it down. I give it a 9/10...it loses a point for using Hypno-Hustler....seriously...
