From here.

Dear Mr. Sanctimonious Know-It-All,

I'm sorry you and your son hadn't read what was frankly a really enjoyable series (and one which I wish I could have followed in its second incarnation, but what with the lack of time and lack of funds and all ...) but if you had, you would have known that the Spider-Girl comic had pretty much little-to-no cheesecake*, no bad words, a strong female heroine, romantic subplots, a light-hearted tone and ... hey, sounds pretty much EXACTLY WHAT YOU SAID. Isn't that funny?

Oh, wait, it wasn't manga. And it actually had a tie to the Spider-Man series. Because former Spider-Man-esque titles that cut ties with it did so well. And all girls like is manga, right? Yay gender assumptions!

And does it maybe occur to you that the last issue of the series is going to maybe WANT to be a legacy deal for story purposes? You know, given that its diverse group of fanboys AND fangirls have been working to save this series for years now? But I guess that all could have been helped if you'd just came in and told us what we really wanted to see, huh?

We don't need your help, dude.

I finished Universe X Vol. 1 and I decided I will never, ever, ever read Vol. 2. This is totally the most unpleasant comic book to read ever. Not the worst comic ever. Not the comic I hate the most. But I've never read a comic that was more BORING and TEDIOUS and FRUSTRATING. Who the hell thinks it's a great idea to make a comic that spends 30 percent of its time explaining the new origins of the Living Mummy and MoonKnight and then KILL THEM? And don't get me started on the useless new characters. Especially the ones that try to have character development. (Yes, I'm looking at you, Charmer.)

Also, this book turns me into a misogynist. Every time I see May Parker I want to slap her in the mouth. And by May Parker I mean "Mayday" Parker. Yes, this series turned Spider-Girl into an irritating brat. I think it deserves to be called a crime against humanity for that alone.

Okay, so she was tolerable in Earth X: Spidey and she has a great costume but for most of the series she's like the prototypical Obnoxious Little Bitch Teenager and most of her "comedic dialogue" is her telling her dad what a complete loser he is. Granted, this series does contain some of the worst Spider-Man dialogue ever, too, but it still doesn't endear me to her.

Oh yeah, and I did read the Paradise X: Heralds thing when it came out. I didn't really like the Spider-Girl there either, because her main character arc was how she became the next Jubilee. And Wolverine/Spunky Young Teenager is pretty much my anti-OTP.
