I'll be frank. I did not enjoy The Spider-Verse, in which several Spider-Men fought a whole family of Morluns, for several issues. Parker's been returned to his own universe, to resume our regularly-scheduled programming. I couldn't be happier to see it actually happening.
Comic books are grand things, but they require a balance of elements to fire on all cylinders. To wit, Thor #6 is every bit as pretty to look at as its predecessors, but essentially nothing happens.

The last few issues have included some grim narration set at a future date. That seems to have been abandoned, or at least put aside, for now. I'm all for it. With issue #4, the…
