    Anyone read this Spidey event and can comment as to whether there were any further consequences for Spidey with regards to "the Other" down the line?
    I read it and I don't recall any further consequences. Didn't he get the ability where he could shoot out a wolverine stabber from his wrists or something? I think that was used one time by another writer and then retconned out.

    Yes, that's right regarding the spike which I thought was quite strange. And from what I've read of Spidey later on, I can't remember anything regarding "The Other" but I thought I'd ask because I thought I might have missed something Thanks for the reply.

    Yes most of the danglers from 'The Other' were picked up by PAD in his subsequent Friendly Neighbourhood Spider-Man run. He did use his new powers in that run and PAD even explained who 'The Other' was. I'm not 100% sure but I think the point where all of those powers were retconned out was in 'One More Day' a couple of years later.

    Thanks for the info. It just seemed to be too "big" of a matter to ignore . I might have to check out those later issues of FNSM.

    I finished Wytches. I liked it more than I thought I would. I'm surprised it hasn't had a deluxe really.

    I'm now starting the Gotham Central Omnibus. It could be a while before I post in this thread again! It's the biggest book I've ever read.
    Currently Pulling: The Shadow/Batman, Batman/TMNT II, Black Hammer, Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, Go Go Power Rangers, Kill or Be Killed, Slots, Autumnlands, Babyteeth

    No Worries! Handily, all of the post-Other issues of FNSM were collected in one fat trade last year:

    There is a letter in the Amazing Spider-Man letters section that asked what hapened with the new powers Spidey got in the Other storyline,and if i remember correctly it was answered that Spider-Man new powers were not forgotten but Spider-Man have just not used them again.Either way the last time Spider-Man had the new powers was in the One More Day storyline.

    Not sure why I never read this as singles as I collected pretty much every Vertigo title (or did this come out as regular DC?) but I have just started trade book 1 of doom patrol, I can normally tell pretty early if I’m going to like something and having read the first issue....I’m intrigued, not a massive Morrison fan like some are on here but the first issue makes me think I may be in for a descent ride

    Yeah, I remember the TPB from a few solicits back. If I see it for cheap, I may pick it up.

    I finally got around to reading the Daredevil/Black Widow: Abbatoir GN. I've been filling in some loose ends to my complete chronological reading of Daredevil. This is one little story that got away from me back when I was reading Daredevil (1964) Vol. 1 but I finally caught up to it.

    The story by Jim Starlin is nothing really special. It's basically about Matt and Tas (that's how Nick Fury and Matt refer to Natasha) tracking down and taking on two serial killers that are killing off telepaths. It's extremely brutal and bloody. I found it a little pointless and I really didn't take to it. The art and colouring, on the other hand, by Joe Chiodo is absolutely breathtaking at times with some beautiful panels.

    Reading through the Simonson Thor omnibus now. About halfway through!

    On one hand I love it, as I am reading some great stories and I know it was money well spent. However on the other hand, it is motivating me to read more Thor and am craving to purchase some other omnibus' which will surely place me outside my budget.

    Anyways, excellent writing & art. I highly recommend!

    I really like Silver Age Thor. Kirby is great on it. I have Simonsons Thor but I only read through a few issues to check it out. I liked it so far. Just need to finish some things before I go back to it.
