    Yeah, but a decent "reporter" would have hammered him for an answer. This is why no one likes the media.

    Softballs have to be pitched just right for comic creators, otherwise they run away.

    Here are some covers and solicits for Amazing Spider-Man in August, featuring the return of MJ:

    AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #601
    Written by MARK WAID
    Penciled by MARIO ALBERTI
    Cover by J. SCOTT CAMPBELL
    70th Frame Variant by TBA
    Prepare for the All-New, All-Deadly: Dark Mary Jane! Oops, sorry, that's the rest of Marvel's solicits...Actually, in this issue "Red-Headed Stranger" begins just after the surprising events of AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #600 with Pete's love life taking a turn for the worse just as his old flame Mary Jane returns to New York City. (FINALLY!! Sheesh. What took us so long?!)

    maryjane2.jpg
    AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #602
    Written by FRED VAN LENTE
    Penciled by BARRY KITSON
    Cover by ADI GRANOV
    70th Frame Variant by MIKE MCKONE
    "Red-Headed Stranger Part II"
    The Chameleon returns with a terrifying new mission that has Mayor J. Jonah Jameson squarely in his sights! Meanwhile, the Anti-Spider Squad narrows its dragnet around the Wall-Crawler, and Peter Parker gets a brand new job...will it bring him closer to the newly-returned Mary Jane, or push her further away?
    AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #603
    Written by FRED VAN LENTE
    Penciled by BARRY KITSON
    Cover by STEPHANE ROUX
    70th Frame Variant by MARIO ALBERTI
    "Red-Headed Stranger Part III"
    The Chameleon is poised to unleash unspeakable horror on New York City and Spider-Man is nowhere to be found, so the only person who can stop him is...Mary Jane Watson?!


    That Granov cover is nice. The Campbell cover has MJ with no stomach.

    Campbell's cover is stupid, but I'm not sure I like Granov's either. The shorts are too short, and the face seems odd to me.

    Also, I guess MJ has freckles now. Thanks Kirsten! First cover is cute though, but MJ's legs in the second seem too long.

    But anyway finally, MJ.

    Your jealousy of other redheads in the Marvel Universe is showing, Faynor.

    It's like a 50's pin up, and MJ looks like a normal girl who isn't dolled up all the time.



    And the Daily Bugle is back to its normal format? I thought it was going by DP (hah!) and was a tabloid instead now.

    She has no internal organs in the first one, and I can't tell if it's just perspective or what but her head looks too small in the second.

    Maybe Jonah's going to buy it back between now and 600ish. The DB storyline has sort of run its course.

    Peter's getting a new job too, so I'm guessing he's done with Frontline. That's too bad, but it's not like they were having him do much.

    Bagley Batman art via The Source (seems like that's all Newsarama links to these days):

    Looks good, and the Bat ears look more pronounced.

    damn i hate j scott campbell's art.

    the granov cover is pretty rad, even though those legs do look a little weird.

    and natural red heads totally should have some freckles. not many, just some. it's hot.

    I like both of those covers, though maybe Campbell a bit more than Granov.

    More importantly, it is nice to see the comic keeping with the time-honoured tradition of having the Chameleon getting his shit beaten in by MJ.

    FINALLY Marvel has released something on the Ultimate Comics line.

    Possible Ultimatum spoilers just to be safe.

    I'm disappointed that the title isn't Ultimate Comics Ultimates.

    Also, Spider-Man looks like a little person.

    No, it is definitely a cross bow pistol. The preview art for Ultimates 3 had him with that same weapon, and the little pouches on his back are for carrying bolts.

    This just means we will never see that Krypto Busiek/Leonardi story then if they're bringing Conner back.

    When it was first announced, and the zero issue solicited it was billed as a new Legion of Superheroes book, and since the then current book wasn't very good, I was excited for a new direction and some fresh blood on it. Instead the main focus seems to be on a mostly unrelated character I have no affinity for at all, and the painfully unfunny Starman.

    That, and Geoff John's recent track record with me has been much more miss than hit latley

    Yes, and Enchantress is a villain that uses magic to seduce people so I'm still not seeing any reason to stop laughing.

    No, no, no. There's an INSIDIOUS PLOT at Marvel to DE GAY him. Obviously. It certainly can't be mind control, or that they're just pairing up powers on the covers and it makes sense for her to be all over him because that's kind of how she is.

    An avant-garde artist gathered a bunch of sociopathic and homicidal teenagers to form a superhero team and provoke a public conversation about what it means to be a hero in post-HAMMER America.

    All of the kids are thematically similar to members of the Masters of Evil, so they'll probably end up being the Young Masters of Evil.

    More like wang control.

    But then, most women have that power.

    Gay men too, incidentally.
