Daily Spider-Man: Wheeeeee!



Once again, I am compelled to recall this:

Man am I torn. On the one hand, I've got to hand it to the guy: that's a pretty dope move, switching trucks so fast he's yanked forward in a perfect horizontal.

On the other hand, I'd personally gather a whole sack of acorns for the squirrel who darts in front of that truck one second later, in the hope that the driver will slam on the brakes...

And you CANNOT tell me the no-one is seeing him!! Unless invisibility is a new Spider-Man skill...

What the hell is going on in that second panel? That traffic configuration doesn’t make any sense. It looks like Peter is stuck inside an Escher print. Also, I agree with DCD, he’s so brazen about using his web shooting! In the era of cell phones with cameras isn’t he the least bit concerned that someone is snapping pictures of this? I would love a storyline where Peter goes to work one day and is presented with pictures of him web shooting as a civilian. Jamison would have a field day!

I just re-re-posted the panel from two Sundays ago (a few hours ago in strip-time) from when Peter still cared about his secret identity. I'll re-re-RE-post it tomorrow if he doesn't stop with these shenanigans.

So another day goes by and nothing happens. We already knew that Peter was dissing MJ for San Francisco to nail Kingpin. Are we looking at 237 more miles of this shit? I can't believe I'm emotionally invested enough in a comic strip to be disappointed by it. Meanwhile Kingpin is probably pushing around a grocery cart for all we know.

And why is Peter speaking aloud? Shouldn't he be using thought bubbles? Not that anyone could hear him with all of the traffic noise.

It is a bit sad to see Peter leave his web hammock. Once again he looks so damn comfortable in it! Should he take the discarded webbing and throw it out or just leave it on the truck? What is the etiquette?

I was thinking about that in relation to JPX's Escher comment. Perhaps his truck got off an offramp and he had to switch to another one headed in the right direction? And maybe he's had to switch several times. If so, it means he can never relax in his web hammock, lest he ride hundreds of miles out of his way. If he were hitchhiking like a regular person, he could at least ask the driver about his whereabouts before crushing the guy's gun.

Octopunk said...

Also, dig Peter's superhuman powers of rationalization.

"Can't blame MJ for falling asleep in the middle of talking to her husband, it's past MIDNIGHT in New York." Yeah, wow, midnight.

"Hope she's not angry that I'm not coming straight home." She is, dude! She's so angry her rage made her unconscious! That must be it, right? Otherwise it looks like she just... doesn't... care...

No wonder he overcompensates with all this needless thrill-seeking. What's the web fluid/bus ticket cost ratio again?

JPX said...

Also, the person driving the black car would ABSOLUTELY see Peter shooting his webs!

Johnny Sweatpants said...

It would be extremely difficult to see the road signs and keep track of your location in a web hammock. Forward visibility is 100% obstructed by truck. He would have to pay close attention to the side streets.

Octopunk said...

Maybe his spider-sense goes off if his exit is coming up.

JPX I've been laughing at the Escher comment all day. The more I stare at it the less sense it makes!
