Though, now that season 1 of Crawlspace is over what does everyone else think of it as a whole?
In it's entirety, I'd give the Black Spider arc a solid 4.5 black Spider masks out of 5

If I'm wrong I can delete my last post.

But damn man, you blew me away with the in-depth research you went through--and more importantly your careful, careful tweaking of the strings of continuity. You didn't just go through Spider-continuity with a hacksaw and chop pieces you didn't like and then replace them with shoddily constructed pieces that were more to your preference, you very carefully crafted realistic and interesting characters and placed them in a very rich and dynamic continuity.
Oh, and despite her not appearing in this issue, this is the most I have ever been able to care about Carlie Cooper since the character was introduced.
Also: That MJ scene in the beginning was perfect. Please initiate a hostile takeover of Marvel--or at least Spider-Man.
SpiderPlumber wrote:Hey Kevin - I can't quite sum it up in one thought...
When I think I've got the right "compliment" in mind, something else pops in for me to consider...
I feel as if this entire "Black Spider" series is a runaway train that I'm bound to...exciting as hell, and as much as I'm anticipating each installment to follow, I don't want the damned thing to end. Your writing is SO different from what Marvel has been spitting out for the past 10+ years that I have a hard time verbalizing the impact.
The characters you've created, the back-stories you've given them...they're all based on the continuity that we all know, and yet, they're so different from what we could ever have expected!
The common thread amongst them all is that they all deliver an impact!
You've written so many things that have made me literally yell out "Holy Shit" that I'd have to re-read every installment to count them...I can't instantly recall them.
Kevin Cushing - C.E.O of "IMPACT COMICS!"
Sounds about right to me.

insaneJonny wrote:Prepage 1 Impressions- I'd hate to start on a negative note Kev and this has absolutely nothing to do with the writing but I can't help but notice there's no previously on CS recap for the very first time, arguably when those of use who are following it regularly need it most, so I'm gonna breeze through no 5 to get my bearings first.
Page 1- I love how you get more mileage out of Carlie in 6 issues then the braintrust have in 54 and counting,
and is that hypno hustler reference just for the fans of the podcasts,
Page 4- 1. I'll admit I've obviously never been in a position to worry about spies but I've seen enough movies (hell I even used the idea in my first novel attempt) to know if I expect someone's a spy, the fact they have a wife along with them doesn't exonerate them from suspicion in the slightest, after all what's to stop the 'wife' in fact being another undercover agent who isn't actually married to the guy?
2. Cute next room gag, but something that comes to mind is that Simon is narrating these events really well for someone that was a sperm at the time.
Page 5- I'm curious of who/what this red skull is and how far is influence goes, particularly if his spies can uncover that about him but he's not the original.
Page 8- Kay if richard and may die then I'm really confused how Simon knows the details of the night he was concieved.
Page 12- Again it's been so long since the last issue I forgot about who commissioned the hit on may
Page 13- I'm very interested how these red skull spies are getting all these pictures of everything happening in peters life, in particular bens death and mary jane crying after the baby,
Page 14- Damn, I'm disappointed we already know the 2 people who remember BND.
Page 15- Jesus christ you make OMD a really good part of someone motivations, well played Kev, well played
Page 16- I'd better find out more stuff about this clad black man kev
Page 17- Hmmm, mixing mechanical engineering with magical problems doesn't really sit well with me, but given a recent quote by Hank Pym in Mighty Avengers 'Magic is just science I haven't explained yet' I suppose I can live with it
And...is it supposed to read 'Might you available for a job when I get out?' or are you missing a word there?
Page 21- Nice Revenge of the goblin reference
2....what the ****, now I'm gripped, I must know who this man is? Do we know him?

insaneJonny wrote:Final thoughts: Firstly before I begin I feel I should clarify- I know nothing about the red skull not established in the first 25 issues of Brubaker's captain america and I know even less about Peters parents (never even read life-theft)
Reading this I feel this would be the perfect story for Deodatos pencils. I know you said in your past you see your script in JRJR's pencils when you write but to me you clearly focus more on character moments then action (not that you don't do action obviously but you obviously prefer the character driven moments) that I see your scripts, this one more then anyone that came before it, in deodatos pencils.
Also I could be wrong here, but I don't think you've ever had anything involving double page usage (e.g a spread) in CS in the 6 and a half issues you've put out, is this a general dislike of them or more the fact that the format of CS pretty much renders the concept void?
The actual story as a whole was very enjoyable as always, the scope of what you're trying nearly unparalleled in the history of spider-man comics (I daresay only Sins Past or the clone saga come close in terms of rocking the very foundations of spider-mans world) and you accomplish what you set out to do with gusto.
Just I don't mean to be rude but I'd prefer issue 7 sooner rather then later
Finally; is the fact that you allow swearing in this forum basically only so we can say 'holy shit' or 'what the fuck' whenever you throw a twist at us
