Daily Spider-Man: Sorry sir, San Francisco is closed. The moose at the front gate should have told you

I see Peter fashioned himself another comfy hammock. What’s with the two panel strip? When is that ever acceptable? I agree with Octo’s title - it’s the middle of the day, where are all the people and cars? Peter seems to have the whole city to himself!

I’ve been thinking about it (probably way too much) – what is Peter’s motivation? The Kingpin hasn’t broken any laws, right? He’s presumably out of jail as a free man. It seems like Peter is just looking for a fight because he doesn’t want to go home to M.J.

Even Peter looks noticably disappointed in the 2nd panel. It's as if he expected the fun and excitement of a big city but ended up a dead street on a quiet Tuesday afternoon.



JPX here is everything we know about why Peter is starting shit with Kingpin. First he read a rumor in the San Francisco Chronicle. Then he got kinda pissed off when he had a thought bubble about his chunky nemesis. Then he tells Mary Jane that he "heard" that Kingpin is more dangerous than ever. That's it.

Hysterical all around, JSP! You also make my point - Kingpin has committed no crime yet Peter is hell bent on starting a fight. I think Peter is bored with M.J.

I favor the opposite theory, that Peter is pathologically boring and he's avoiding M.J. so he doesn't have to acknowledge it. I bet by now her falling asleep while talking to him is an almost daily occurrence.

Is Boring Personality Disorder a thing? Symptoms include narcolepsy in those around you and constant out-loud narration of your every action, with at least one boldly over-emphasized word per sentence, e.g. "Here's where I get OFF."

Hahaha, Boring Personality Disorder! I love it!

The Peter presented in this comic strip has the mind of a 12 year old boy. He's probably terrified of Mary Jane's boobs and would prefer to spend his time napping in truck hammocks, throwing keys out windows, traveling to San Francisco on a whim etc.

Good point. That reminds me: the Comment of the Week over at The Comics Curmudgeon was about the key throwing incident:

"NOO! THOSE WERE SUGAR-BASED KEYS!"
