The work day started just before 7:30 this morning with a call from my manager saying everybody had called in sick and I'd better be there. And spiralled predictably from there. Seeing this tonight put a big smile on my face and pretty much turned the mood around, I can't thank you enough for that.
I'm so very glad you came around on Carlie. I have a guilty confession: she's my favorite character in this comic. Don't take that as a diminished love for anyone else; if I didn't love Spidey and MJ and all the rest I wouldn't have taken on this huge undertaking to give them their due while Marvel prints its retro-porn. But I often latch onto well developed supporting characters as my favorites in all media (Lindsey was my favorite character in Angel, what does that tell you?). And Carlie is quite simply the most real, human character I think I've ever written. I have the brain trust to thank for introducing her and then...well and then nothing. So she was a fairly blank slate I was able to fold some personality over. And I largely let her reflect the kind of insecurities I don't like to admit come from myself. She is sort of socially awkward, and she will make mistakes, and sometimes come off as sort of a romantic fool. She's a good person with very many wonderful qualities, but her emotional shortcomings stemming from loneliness are about as honest as I can be with a character. And I love her for being so good naturedly imperfect. Half the time she just doesn't really know what she's doing. And can't that be said for most of us? I confess I very nearly wrote her a scene into #4 just because I missed her. But alas, she just didn't fit.
Anyhow, I really look forward to your review of #4. But feel free to take it slow and savor it. Wouldn't want you to go through withdrawals waiting for #5

For Peter's dialogue, it could just be a fault with me, but I wonder if it might have something to do with what you're used to reading these days? If you've been mostly reading BND Peter, the voice would definitely be different, as I'm writing the Peter I've always known. And there is a significant difference.

2. "nic nacs?" What happened to the all powerful "tic tacs?!"
3. Most of what I love about this issue are all the character interactions, best seen at the restaurant. I'm so glad that you're bringing legitimate (and recurring) minor characters to the fold! I especially love the platonic MJ-Carlie and Peter-Flash relationship.
4. My only negative feedback concerns page 4. I read it a couple times and I really could not orient myself. Where was The Faceless Man coming from? I think, perhaps, this page (and this page only!) could be re-blocked.
Keep up the good, nay, GREAT, work!
