    The main question is did Ditko object to Peter graduating high school and going to college, when he wrote the character in the '60s? The answer to that is no. There's no evidence that he did, and...

    It's even sadder and scarier to see a guy in his 20s fall into a pattern of repetition.



    A valid and fair observation. However...

  3. You are saying that Peter's struggles wouldn't be...

    You are saying that Peter's struggles wouldn't be forgivable if he was older. In other words, his mistakes are down to youth and inexperience...ergo competence and capability.

    I agree with you...
  4. Great that we agree on this. Especially the...

    Great that we agree on this. Especially the 'common man' part and not 'common youth', or 'common teenager', or 'common boy'.




    You are conflating two very different and very separate things.

    Except in stories like OMD and BND which is justified entirely by the "facts of the nuts and bolts" since the stories themselves cannot justify the change by itself. That's the reason this Brevoort...

    You would know more about the making and publication of comics you were directly involved in certainly, but as far as stuff from before your time is concerned, probably not. In fact, like most fans...

    Well, what story does it tell? The story that it tells is that Ditko got a major concession, that Ditko's contribution to the plotting of Spider-Man was of such a nature that Lee (and the publisher,...

    What exactly is no longer acceptable?



    Peter in the classic era struggled to balance being a superhero and being a working-class guy at the same time without the resources of Bruce Wayne, or...

    So we take the word of some guy who Ditko never worked with in any capacity, who came on well after his time, and who's just repeating second-hand information...over the actual co-creator of the...

    The fact is as he admits on that interview, he only joined Marvel as an intern in 1989...he has never actually been the main editor of Spider-Man titles, and yet somehow mostly for managing to stick...

    12:42 Tom Brevoort is dead wrong about Ditko not wanting Spider-Man to grow up and go to college. The person who...

    I liked VENOM 1 unlike a lot of people but I'll admit I wasn't exactly looking forward for a sequel. Especially one not directed by the one who did the first.

    As for Venom 2, a delay in production...

    The question that needs to be asked here, is that are you writing out of concern for the future of comics publishing or as a fan worried about what's happening in the next issue?

    The former is...

    My understanding is that Venom didn't complete production, i.e. they didn't finish shooting all that they needed to, so they can't work on the movie remotely, via editing, sound-mixing, VFX done at...

    The longer we are in this crisis, the better we are going to get in handling it. So maybe things would change by then.

    Taking just the JMS/JRJR run in isolation without reference to anything continuity related (before and after)...the totem concept is introduced by Ezekiel to Peter as a kind of mystical allegory but...

    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.
