Review(s) of the Week: Superior Spider-man #9 and Sonic the Hedgehog #248

If you haven't already, check out my reviews of issues 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 6AU, 7, and 8. So this issue Ock-Spidey has figured out that Peter is alive in the back of his head and he uses a device to erase him. The devise doesn't totally work at first and Ock and Peter must battle in the mindscape of their shared brain and Ock apparently beats Peter. Badly. And now it seems Peter is erased for good. It was kind of a depressing downer issue. It was the first issue of this series I didn't care for. Unless, despite appearances Peter is still alive in there it seems Slott has really written himself into a corner for when the time comes, and it will, to restore Peter. Also I really felt like Peter went down way too easy, but maybe that's just me. The one thing that will be interesting is apparently Ock-Spidey has erased all of Peter's memories now so it will be harder to keep up his ruse, and frankly he wasn't doing that great a job to begin with. Hopefully next issue will be a little more enjoyable.

The comic crossover event of 2013 continues. If you haven't already check out my reviews for parts one and two. This issue deals mostly with the Blue Blur and the Blue Bomber duking it out in the Green Hill Zone in Sonic's world while Dr Wily and Dr Eggman observe and laugh. While that's going on Proto Man delivers some readings he got from the portal to Sonic's universe to Dr. Light. Dr. Light uses that data to reopen the portal and Mega Man goes through it getting Sonic to follow. Once in his home universe Mega Man calls for backup.
This crossover is great. It is every bit as fun as something like this should be. The fight between Mega Man and Sonic was great and satisfied both the Mega Man and Sonic fan in me. If you're not reading this you're wrong.
