    I think we disagree on his artistic merits. It is worth noting that this is his first sequential work.

    That said, at the moment, I think he has more value as an artist than as a writer.

    His...

    On another discussion at CBR, I just found out about an interesting website, Comic Book Roundup, that seems to have a metafilter approach to comics, providing links to reviews and averages for the...

    To answer the thread question, I disagree with what the artist is saying. Very few people in comics will immediately make a living telling their stories without compromise.

    There are probably...

    That's pretty awesome.

    I liked his Animal Man mini a few years back. Solid take on what happens when superheroes reach middle-age.

    The advice I got was that sales on comics are based on three things: the characters, the creators and the concept. If you're an unknown creator, you need a compelling hook. See Invincible...

    I don't think Tarantula fits in a Sinister Six film. His power set mainly works in opposition to Spider-Man.

    The main reasons I picked him are that I thought the story needed someone other than...

    It depends on the project.

    The floppies remain a source of revenue. And it's often important to have cheaper entry points available early on. Plus, digital comics have removed some of the...

    It's not about a lack of actors.

    There is unfortunately the perception that something with several black cast members is for a different audience. Unless it's a Shonda Rhimes TV show.

    It's possible for someone to make multiple accounts in order to vote, although that would quickly get some attention.

    Even a poll where you see how people voted wouldn't prevent that from...

    Good call on Bryan Cranston as J. Jonah Jameson.

    There are several advantages to floppies.

    - It remains a cheaper entry point than an OGN.
    - Marvel and DC make money from all the readers who double-dip. This will be gone if they do away with...

    I'd give it an A.

    There are some bad stories, but also a few that belong on lists of the best ever. The Night Gwen Stacy Died deserves all the accolades, the first appearance of the Punisher is...

    The norm since the revival seemed to be that whenever there's a new Doctor or companion, there's an adventure in the present, followed by an adventure in the future or past, and an adventure in the...

    There are several reasons.

    It requires two members of a cast to come from a group that is roughly one-eighth of the population of the United States. That's not always going to work out given the...

    I don't think the deal with Mephisto is immoral, so that's not why it's an advantage that it's referenced so rarely. My personal understanding of OMD/ OMIT is that Peter made a deal with Mephisto for...
  18. Poll: What is your verdict on Gerry Conway's Amazing Spider-Man run?

    Recently, I've done a few threads asking about relatively recent Spider-Man runs.

    But let's look at a classic run, the tail end of the first 150 issues of Amazing Spider-Man.

    I'm curious about...

    They broke up shortly after he revealed his identity to her. I don't recall her...

    A difference with the deal with Mephisto is that it isn't referenced in-universe all that often. Status as a divorced man would come up in conversations.

    The argument is that many post-OMD stories could have been told with a married Peter Parker. I think stories in which she does not appear would be different if she were present. It means there's a...

    I've seen different reasons given for why Peter Parker shouldn't get divorced.

    It does age him slightly, but there are other problems. It would be something that defines him in-universe. And with...
