    Really? You found reading through that decade of Spidey titles a slog? Surprised to hear that; curious what stories you found to be sub-par. I could understand if you read the very early '80's...

    Satellite titles for a character with as rich a supporting cast/rogues gallery as Spidey is a very good idea. The trick has always been to get the right creative teams in place and, equally ...

    No confirmation but it appears so. Zdarsky was off the book with #310 and, after a few fill-in issues, it appears that Friendly Neighborhood SM is taking it's place. I was hopeful that we could...

    Omit Owsley and replace with Tom DeFalco and I am right there with ya!! ;-)

    Let's throttle back, people; no need to get so aggressive over this.

    I have to say----and I know this is still a very small sample size-----I think Spencer's run is off to a much better start than Slott's was. And I think Slott had a very good start to his run and,...

    So I just read through the issue again and wondering if anyone thought that the mystery villain could be Richard Fisk? He would certainly check a lot of the boxes and could be a good twist.

    You may be right; PAD was one of my very favorite writers throughout the '80's and '90's. His runs on PP:SSM, Hulk and X-Factor still rank among my all-time favorite runs. But I cannot recall any...

    I really have to give Spencer credit for the slow burn he is utilizing for the new "RagDemon" foe; it has been a lot of fun and I hope he sticks the landing once his/her ID is revealed. This may be...

    This is tough to admit but this whole series has been awful; I hate to say it because PAD has been one of my favorite writers but this book started off bad and slowly became unreadable for me. Some...

    So the universal praise for this issue, combined with the tepid sales and relatively few users here commenting on it, kinda supports the theory that the only time people are attracted to a Spidey...

    This sounds interesting and I will be picking it up for sure; I like what I have read of Taylor's work. But I will repeat my concern over these satellite books: unless each one is going to have...

    I thought this was superb! Loved the narration from the symbiote's POV which actually made it sympathetic; something that has been explored only very sparingly over the years. Excellent job of...

    Really fun issue and an enjoyable read but felt just a little light. Certainly felt the most like Spencer's "Superior Foes" run and not just because of their 3-page cameo. Maybe it's because there...

    Between good and great for me, so ....... very good if that was an option? Ultimately, I voted "good" simply because I thought his first 3-4 issues were poor, then quickly became great through the...

    I used to but not anymore. Firstly, it's just way too expensive to keep up on just Spider-titles; if there are 10 titles monthly (a safe bet and some double-ship), that is a minimum of $40 per...

    I definitely agree with that last point. I thought Slott's earliest stories on ASM were really strong, especially the opening "Big Time" arc. But, around "Ends of the Earth", things changed for...

    Haven't picked it up yet but it's on my list for sure; the story sounds interesting and I am a sucker for '80's style art----the colors look fantastic from the preview I saw.

    ASM continues to look very promising and I am loving the slow burn that Spencer is creating for this new mystery villain. Reminds me somewhat of how Stern built the mystery of the Hobgoblin back in...

    Yeah, I feel the same and---what's really promising----is the interview Spencer did before his start on the title wherein he promised starting the series with one tone and then shifting gears towards...

    Yeah, powerful and unexpected for sure!

    But once again, great stories in satellite titles just don't seem to generate the buzz and sales as those in the "flagship" title which I suppose...

    Yeah, IIRC the twice monthly schedule was done for the first time back during the David Michelnie era sometime late 1980's and was ostensibly done for some big story arcs and also for summertime (not...
