    100% agreed on all points. And count me among those who are completed mystified by the relative success of that Spidey/Deadpool comic; unreadable is the right word. I kept trying, thinking I was...

    Yeah, well that's Line Marketing 101: when you just can't seem to get new people under your product umbrella, the alternative is to sell more to the people already there. Call it line marketing or...

    Nick Spencer. I think his mixture of great long-term narrative and humor would be a great fit; I know a lot of people dislike his political leanings but I don't see that overwhelming the pages of a...

    Scott, yeah, no doubt the biggest weakness of the BND era was that the rotating creative teams meant that the narrative was disjointed. Not only that but it seemed that, early on, Slott, Guggenheim,...

    My first guess is that, over the last decade or so, Marvel seems to prefer interrupting every character's own story trajectory in order to squeeze them into whatever company-wide crossover is ready...

    Yeah, I think "Papparazzi" being Marcos Martin's first work on the title definitely contributes to my like for a story that, under another artist, would certainly grade lower. And thx----maybe I will...

    BND Era Recap

    For an era that generates so much discussion, surprisingly little has to with the actual stories. And I suppose I understand that; this was a major status quo change for the character and, as just...

    Agreed! Both those Sandman and Vulture stories are among the better ones in recent memory for the respective characters.

    Absolutely which is why I merely qualified my enthusiasm for the title. I am still buying it but it was originally presented as an alternative to the current ASM title and was allegedly going to be...

    Oh yeah, I am still buying it and pumped for the first issue but.....this solicit/cover gives me a feeling we are gonna get something closer to Avenging Spider-Man than the first volume of PP:SSM. ...

    Count me among the voices bummed out by this cover and solicit; seems like it took all of 2 issues for Marvel to succumb to the drug of churning out yet another team-up book. So much for "back to...

    Definitely recommended! It was a strange time for the books but, IMO, Peter did the best with that status quo and, while it cannot match his PP:SSM run, it's pretty solid!

    "Cross-Pollination" would be fine but, IMO, I hope it's a good long while (never would be better) before the crossovers with ASM or other spider-titles begin. My hope is that this title resembles...

    I'm always a bit bewildered by the anti-Aunt May sentiment. Unless you were reading ASM exclusively in the 1970's, she hasn't had a heart attack in 40 years and hasn't played the "oh dear, Peter,...

    It may be the worst, period. That story was insanely bad on every level; the rape of MM, while horrendous, wasn't the only bad thing about the story, though it was of course the low point. Nearly...

    So, by your logic, the Avengers are incompetent for not "dealing more efficiently" with Thanos, Ultron or any of their enemies?

    2099 is already cancelled. I personally think RYV will continue for the foreseeable future; not sure that the new PP:SSM will siphon off any other title's audience.

    Looking back, I think that is a fair assessment. And, by the way, those Ed Hannigan covers were outstanding; very creative and really groundbreaking at the time.
