Book two of the new Marvel event still felt incredibly introductory. I feel like the first two issues of this series could have been balled into one book but I that doesn't mean this issue was bad. It is good to see that not all of the heroes are together but it also brought up a lot more questions as to what the hell is actually going on.
One of my big issues with this book so far is trying to figure out who is actually Peter Parker. Bendis' writing of Peter doesn't feel very Otto like but he has stated that the story does take place in the Marvel NOW continuum and there is a Superior Spider-Man book tied in so I am a little lost. Maybe because crap is so serious Otto isn't really himself...who knows... I did like Peter's story as to how he ended up tied to a chair in the first issue but that ALSO brought up more questions.
I understand that these early issues are meant to set the pieces in motion and by the last page of the book there does seem to be some motion happening. I am excited to see what "the plan" is in the next issue and I am still insanely intrigued as to how the world went to shit over night. I have a lot of faith in Brian Michael Bendis right now and I trust he wont let me down.
