    Agreed on everything. Great write-up and tribute to MK:SM

    Yeah it was the first time Spider-Man went magical realist. It also mixed genres and tones. So Peter is a teacher at a high school in a poor neighborhood which is dealt with in a down to earth way,...

    Glad that you mentioned The Daydreamers (ASM#246).

    My picks would be

    - ASM#96-98 aka The Drug Trilogy. A three-issue arc focused on a supporting character turning to drugs was certainly quite...

    So they give you a physical hard copy for free for what you buy online. Not gonna happen. Monopolies got where they are maximizing profits and gaining something from every little last tiny drop. So...

    It's a fact that the entire comics infrastructure was tied to physical releases. Variant covers and editions, relaunches and number 1s, all that was based on floppy copies. As is other stuff like...

    Remender's rejected pitch proves that one of the biggest claims about BND was a lie. The justification given at the time about OMD and BND was that this would provide inspiration and a springboard...

    Marvel's animation has always been mediocre. The exceptions (X-Men Evolution, Spectacular Spider-Man) and some others, are exceptional for a reason.

    This is maybe the first major interview anyone at Marvel has done about the Coronavirus. Tom Brevoort is someone I have very mixed feelings about...

    This is a wonderful youtube video by Matt Draper, a comics critic, who talks about the story in the context of Conway's classic run.

    A really good issue. Though I must admit the timing is strange.

    Because with COVID-19 and this being potentially the last comic released for a while, that means that we have to wait for several...

    It's the battle with Jormungandr for me.

    The death of Skurge who stood alone at Gjallerbru.

    Beta Ray Bill lifting Mjolnir.

    Throgg in Central Park.

    Sweet.

    Those doctors should be accompanied with grocery staff and restockers and suppliers here.

    When this is over, those guys should get a huge fund, and that version of that scene in...

    I read every book in the original Goscinny-Uderzo run. My favorites include - Asterix and the Olympics, Asterix the Gladiator, Asterix and the Great Banquet, Asterix and the Normans, Asterix and Son,...

    That's the indie comic wiseguy in him.



    And Goblin knowing his identity was another way to establish him as the greatest threat. It means nothing if Vulture and Mysterio and everyone else just...

    Bendis cited Spider-Man 2 as his inspiration. Of course he started doing it before to some extent.

    I approve this message.

    Also, hated the AI thing. Apparently they wanted an AI to give Peter someone to talk to, and to find a way to do the constant monologuing of the comics (since it's been...

    <citation needed>



    In the sense that all carny tricks require a bit of daring yeah, don't stop them from being carny tricks.

    This is totally fair.

    As long as people accept that MCU Spider-Man is "a" Spider-Man and not "the" Spider-Man it's fine.

    The MCU is certainly set up to be the permanent screen home of all the...

    Safe to say that it's not just you. Eight posters on this thread agree with IM being overemphasized over Spider-Man. With you, that makes nine. That's the majority of posters here.



    It's been...

    This is what I mean when I say the MCU Spider-Man movies promote elitism and snobbery.



    The assumption here is that a "teenager with limited means" cannot create the classic Ditko spider-suit....

    How would you feel if suddenly Adam Strange was treated as the big thing in DC movies and cartoons, and Superman was shown as intern to Adam Strange and so on? It wouldn't feel right, would it?

    Did they specify which year the first game was set in? Don't really remember them doing that. So they can easily Marvel Time it, and say that Spider-Man PS4 was actually set in 2020, that Devil's...
