I’d buy Spider-Girl if J. Scott Campbell drew it. Slim chance, I know. =^p

I like arcana but she is not Spider-Girl. This is not another slap to all Spider-Girl fans and OMD fans.

Wait…OMD had “fans?”

I meant pre omd fans. sorry

By the way I made the mistake because I am so mad. Can’t edit posts and what I want can’t say without getting in trouble. This really a evil act. Spider-Girl didn’t sell what it should (Boy I love to by fly on marvel/diamonds walls to see if that was real sales) and put as backup or something for the fans. They don’t do that they rub the salt into the wounds with this. By the way the sales thing was because I just don’t trust anything marvel says anymore. This going to fail big time. Didn’t work when they canceled she-hulk and did a lyra mini with her name. It’s not going to work Arana as spider-girl.

Mayday fans upset about this- really?

You’re all being immature. Marvel has given Mayday multiple chances, and kept her as long as they could when she should have been canceled long ago. Calling Anya Spider-girl is obviously more marketable, and since she is part of the 616 universe Marvel can do more with her. She can guest-star and crossover and be part of events. There are multiple Batmen, Supermen, Flashes, Wolverines, Spider-men, ect. from different universes. This is no biggie. Of all the inane and absurd things to whine about, I must say this takes the cake. Anya has a chance to be the highest profile Hispanic character in comics. We should give her that chance, as we gave Mayday hers for 12 years.

But could have continue as a back-up. It showed did well enough for that for now but no. That would be smart. Calling us immature because the grave on Real Spider-Girl isn’t even cold and they are announcing a new book featuring another character. Difference between multi others characters is that they didn’t throw the others characters away for it well other Wally West/Flash.

Nah, not bothered. I’m quite happy to read Arana-as-Spider-Girl in Young Allies but I’m just not that invested in her as a character to buy a solo book. Also, while I enjoyed Mayday’s adventures her demise for this is what really annoys me. It’s dissing Julia Carpenter-Spider-woman again. First she’s jobbed to Carol Danvers, then saddled with a new name and costume because of Jessica Drew and now kicked into touch by a kiddie knock off. No sir, I didn’t like it!

Meant to say “It’s not Mayday’s demise for this that annoys me….”

Yeah what have they done to Julia sucks too but welcome to the marvel under Joe q. Where everyone gets the shaft including fans.

Ok lets start taking bets on Spider girl-12 issues?10?
switched to miniseries?
