I'm a well read grad student who's bluntly honest about all things, although I try to be most honest about myself.
I'm just not a huge fan of these events, mostly because they seem to be...shallow. Like I don't see what larger purpose this will serve in the Marvel universe, nor what the ones before this served, and it makes me cynical.
It's fun seeing Rocket as a Venom, and Robbie Reyes as a Ghost Rider, and there's a twist I really enjoyed in the middle of this, thus the three-star rating.
It was fun and slick.
But it certainly wasn't great, something I know this author can do well. It didn't make me feel for the characters, even at points where I normally would have. Most of the emotional aspects felt like it was trying to manipulate me, or just fell flat, thus the lack of four or five stars.
Still, I probably inflated this rating. It's the first time I've been able to read and review in a while - and man, I missed both of those things!
