Instead of drawing original artwork for books, he will trace other people's or actual photos.

Isn't tracing reference photos pretty routine though?

I think there's a distinction between using references and actual tracing. If you're hired to draw a Star Wars comic and you're literally tracing over screenshots from the movies, you're not actually contributing anything.

Oh ok yeah that's a bit different to what I was thinking. :lol:

The Harry stuff in Spencer's run is still to be explained.

I think it's going to be that when Mephisto changed time to erase the Parker marriage it resulted in two Harrys- the Kindred one who became in a demon in hell and the one we've seen since BND who'd recently got back together with Liz Allen and who Kindred has presumably murdered off-page.


That was my understanding of what I’ve read so far, though I’m not sure if nu-Harry is dead? MJ makes a specific point when she meets him that she saw Harry recently and he certainly wasn’t a demonic mental case.

I was a fan of the JMS/JRJR run, I know there were a few duffers but it was nice to see them playing with some new stuff, and I enjoyed the addition of Ezekiel and the Spider-Totem weirdness. I don’t know if I’m in the minority there though! :slol:

It’s been interesting to see some of the call-backs in Nick Spencer’s run, and I wonder if he isn’t moving towards a status-quo similar to what JMS had in place(Peter and MJ together, May being ITK).

There's an issue where Carly runs the DNA of an unidentified corpse in the morgue and immediately tries to call MJ in horror when she realises who it is. She's attacked by Kindred before speaking to MJ but presumably it's someone they both know. Realistically that's either Harry or Peter.

I see Romita Jr is heading back to Marvel, can’t say I’m a massive fan of his but i don’t not like his art.

Also, I didn’t realise Bendis was dropped from his exclusive deal at DC so he can work where he wants, guess Marvel wouldn’t want to get him back in the fold again though :lol:

I never really understood why JRJR went to DC in the first place but I wasn’t reading comics at the time so dunno if there was a falling out or whatever.

I’m in the minority, I think, of really liking his style. It’s very blocky and probably objectively a bit rubbish but it’s what I grew up on, as he must’ve been drawing Spider-Man for about ten or fifteen years on and off, across various titles.

Yeah, I got into Spider-Man when the clone saga was going on in the comics (best time to get into it :lol: ) I don’t mind his stuff but his faces can be off at times. I think it’s also the fact he done so much Spider-Man over the years that it was always nice to get fresh artists.
