Amazing Spider-Man Annual 28

Post by Col_Fury » Fri May 02, 2008 12:23 am

Amazing Spider-Man Annual #28
1994

Appearances:
Spider-Man(Peter Parker), Carnage(Cletus Kasady)

Synopsis:
Pg1-pg25
Carnage is being transported and escapes. Luckily, Spider-Man was following with a sonic gun, but because he spends so much time talking, Carnage destroys it and escapes. He takes off to find his old buddy Bentine to kill him. Spider-Man follows and eventually finds him, and with Bentine’s help he defeats Carnage.

References:
There’s a FlashBack to Cletus’ childhood with his buddy Bentine at a summer camp.(pg15-pg16) Cletus sets off some fireworks in the girl’s cabin and Bentine takes the heat for it. This would precede V: CU 3-FB, where Cletus has moved on from pranks to murder.

This story follows Maximum Carnage.

Amazing Spider-Man Annual #28/2

Appearances:
Cloak & Dagger

Synopsis:
Pg1-pg8
Cloak & Dagger bust up a drug ring, but Cloak keeps making stupid mistakes. They have a chat about what’s bugging him, and he says it’s because of the events in Web of Spider-Man 101 & Spider-Man 37. He promises to do better next time.

Amazing Spider-Man Annual #28/3

Appearances:
Joe Smith

Synopsis:
Pg1-pg8
Joe Smith is sick of his neighborhood being run over by drug dealers, so he puts his suit on even though he doesn’t have powers anymore. He doesn’t fare very well, but his fellow neighbors chip in and drive the dealers away.

References:
There’s a Flashback to show what Joe’s been up to since CA 246, namely attending his court date.

The Rhino’s mom’s apartment has been looted and his niece’s locket has been stolen, so he suits up and beats up some hoodlums to get the locket back. When he returns he shows his mom the money he got from the crooks and she kicks him out of the apartment saying she doesn’t want his blood money.

Having just read this issue I was glad to find this review to save me the trouble of a full analysis. However, I would suggest a couple adjustments to the entries for Carnage and Spidey.

The FB to Cletus's childhood at summer camp depict him at a young age (8-12 yrs old?). It is mentioned though that he was sent there by social services. This would suggest he is under state care at this point. (From S-M 36-FB we learned he was eventually living at Saint Estes Home for Boys.) But, in V:CU 1-FB, a young Cletus is described as living at home w/ mom+dad (and the family's dead dog :twisted: ). So, it would seem that ASM@ 28-FB should have occurred between these other FB's instead of prior to the latter. The depiction of his age and actions could suggest otherwise, but this interpretation would imply-

CARNAGE/CLETUS KASADY
V:CU 3-FB
V:CU 1-FB
**ASM@ 28-FB**
S-M 36-FB
ASM 361-FB-BTS
{ASM 344}
ASM 345

ASMU 2
**ASM@ 28**
WOSM 117


The issue placement for Carnage fits w/ the idea that he has been at the Vault since Maximum Carnage. The story in ASM@ 28 suggest he is being transferred from the Vault. By his next appearance (WOSM 117) he has been moved to Ravencroft. This issue could be considered a failed first attempt to achieve that move. However, the Ravencroft facility is still being restructured after Maximum Carnage (under the leadership of Dr. Kafka) until WOSM@ 10. The new facility passes a security test from Shreik during that issue and would then seem ready for business. (There is a subplot started from WOSM 110 involving Warrant and not wanting Kafka's changes implemented to accept such prisoner rehab cases...) Given this, I would suggest instead-

SPIDER-MAN/PETER BENJAMIN PARKER
WOSM@ 10
**ASM@ 28**
S-M 46


Other inconsequential appearances from these stories:

BRENTINE, BILLY (Cletus's childhood friend)
**ASM@ 28-FB**
**ASM@ 28**

ASM@ 28- Vault doctors Conrad&Sarah, Billy's co-worker Sally

ASM@ 28/3- Julia Trainor (Joe's co-worker/romantic interest?)

ASM@ 28/4- Alexa (Rhino's niece)
