Maturing Hero in an Immature Title

Well we’re moving on to our fourth creative team in thirteen issues and I'm thinking that a little much personally and does not bode well for the overall life to this book. . But what the hell do I know other than my enjoyment of the book has declined with each subsequent creative change.  So let's pop in here to Legacy issue #13 and see what's cooking with the Spider family.

The issue starts up with Annie taking on a version of the Sinister 6 while working out the possibility of a new nickname over Spiderling. Spidey Dad jumps in to aid his daughter a bit
However Wolverine Dad stops the simulation to take a moment and teach Spiderling the appropriate time to work nicknames out isn't during a huge battle.

Peter and Annie take a ride home from school having a very typical daddy teenage daughter conversation on the ride home.Peter offers to have a Family Fun Day before school starts back up to which Annie suggests a VR Theme Park.

Back at the house Peter and MJ scour the internet for tickets to the VR theme park and find it to be obnoxiously overpriced. They realize they can't afford the VR theme park and settle on something a little more reasonable, while MJ works on getting off work. They workshop thinking of ideas for Spiderlings new name.

The family ends up going to Coney Island Theme Park much to the dismay of Annie. Despite her disappointment she tries her hand at a few games winning a little prize, and choosing a Wolvey head over Spidey, all before trouble strikes.

The Lizard comes out of nowhere to interrupt Family Fun Day as the Spider Family springs into action to stop him for our cliffhanger.

Overall, I was completely surprised at how disappointed I was by the tone, the art, and the overall feel of this first Legacy issue of Renew Your Vows. I was 100% a supporter of the series before the constant creative juggling, but as of right now it feels like with the 8 year time jump, making the character Annie more mature, the overall feel of the book has went backwards into a title aimed at pre teens, based on its subject matter and dialogue used throughout this issue. I can't recommend this any longer which is a same to me personally as a fan.

Bits and Pieces

The new creative team and direction of this title seem to have sent this book backwards as far as my enjoyment level goes. Everything feels off and it has really affected my overall opinion of this book at the moment. Who knew Legacy was also a good jumping off point.
