    It was pretty well laid out in every news story. He didn’t resign, he was replaced and is gone from Marvel altogether.

    When someone gets fired, it is rare to give that person a forum like that so I doubt it.

    I have to say I am not surprised; Marvel has been floundering both creatively and commercially these last few years (in my eyes anyway) and losing Bendis definitely came as a shock and big blow to...

    Ah, OK----- I got ya now. Yeah, I use MU myself and really only buy ASM and PPTSSM as floppies now (just to keep my collection going); I catch up on everything else 6 months down the line. I...
  6. I agree with your basic point but confused about...

    I agree with your basic point but confused about what you mean overall; we actually do have consistent teams on ASM, the new volume of PPTSSM and Ben Reilly, Scarlet Spider right now. And ASM, which...

    That's another fantastic Marcos Martin variant cover! I know it's not realistic to hope for, but I wish he was at least the regular cover artist if he can't do interiors on a monthly basis (which I...

    A good question but an odd poll: I don't know of many who would consider JMD "unsung" for his SSM run (it is widely considered one of the best ever). Similarly, Tom DeFalco and Ron Frenz' 1980's...
  9. Yes, that was Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man...

    Yes, that was Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man #23. As an aside, there was a much better story way back in Web of Spider-Man #13 that dealt with a similar confrontation (minus the unmasking) that I...

    Yes, I meant Gage.....my bad; will correct and thx for the assist!
  11. Yes, exactly right. And, while I enjoyed that...

    Yes, exactly right. And, while I enjoyed that issue and overall arc, this setup already is more rewarding and rife with possibilities than that approach was (JJJ gets angry at Peter for paying for...
  12. Poll: I've enjoyed a lot of Dan's run but I personally...

    I've enjoyed a lot of Dan's run but I personally think it is past time for him to move on; ever since Superior wrapped (nearly 5 years ago!), his run on the title has been defined by one big mega-arc...
  13. That certainly was one factor. I find Zdarsky's...

    That certainly was one factor. I find Zdarsky's earlier attempts at humor in this title to be horribly awkward and ill-fitting but I think this issue's success had more to do with what he actually...
  14. EXACTLY. This concept is rich with so many...

    EXACTLY. This concept is rich with so many possibilities that it is almost obvious that it should have been done long ago with the benefit of hindsight. Interestingly, when the CW Unmasked era hit,...
  15. I can't see any dumb reversal anytime soon; this...

    I can't see any dumb reversal anytime soon; this opens up a lot of rich stories---JJJ now can actually play a big role again in Peter/Spidey's life albeit in a different way. This was a terrific...
  16. Superb issue. I really need to retract my...

    Superb issue. I really need to retract my earlier criticisms of Zdardsky; this was a masterfully told tale and one that I didn't see coming in any way, shape or form. Thinking more about last...
  17. WOW. This issue was not just terrific, but it...

    WOW.

    This issue was not just terrific, but it was the exact opposite of what the series was for the first two or three issues. I was on the verge of dropping it because I thought it was actually...

    Multiple writers but this should answer any/all questions on what was/is a fascinating period for Spidey:

    I mostly agree; I was a big fan of Slott's first few years on the book but have found his work very hit or miss (mostly miss) since Superior ended but.....I have to wonder how much of that falls on...

    I have enjoyed the last 2 issues quite a bit as well; and #790 more than #789----perhaps not coincidentally, whenever Gage is involved in the script, I enjoy the book----and Peter's...

    I really enjoyed this issue overall; and I wonder how much of that has to do with Christos’ involvement. This read much more like what I perceive to be Peter Parker and Spiderman to me more so than...

    ^THIS^

    Spidey has actually tied or maybe surpassed the X-Men for convoluted history. It’s time to at least address how best to streamline things for the future. That’s all I’m saying.

    I do agree that the more time that goes by, the larger and more significant the plotholes become as villains/supporting cast all have gone through multiple permeations and it's almost impossible for...

    Yeah, the character has been jerked back and forth quite a bit over the last 20 years or so which is why I wonder if a hard reboot may happen. I realize these things happen with other characters...

    But that's just it: a reboot doesn't necessarily mean they have to start him off in high school all over again. This is fiction: why not start it off with Peter as a 25-year old (or whatever) and,...
