    I've never been able to get into MacDonald's stories, either, though I can't say I've really tried.

    That said, his theology flows beautifully. Sheer poetry in my opinion.

    Story-wise, I've...

    Sure, but there are core elements that are arguably so important that no version should discard them. As such, for many fans, the MCU version comes across as "Peter Parker in name only."

    The MCU...

    So I've been reading from my favorite theological work again lately: UNSPOKEN SERMONS by George MacDonald.

    Exactly. Now it's different--with streaming, kids mostly watch what they directly choose. Which is different than flipping through channels on a Sat morn and something catching your attention which...

    I'm not sure either.

    I remember ye olden days when exposure was almost a given because Spider-Man and His Amazing Friends was on NBC!

    If the MCU were a person's only exposure to Spider-Man, they would come away believing that Stark was a more important figure in Peter's life than Uncle Ben.

    Reverential is a perfect description of that moment.

    I don't hold Raimi accountable for Bendis' bias against secret identities. The train scene didn't involve Peter being flippant with his id, his mask caught on fire so it was either discard it or burn...

    In the SM2 scene, though, no one recognized Peter as anyone other than 'some kid.' And the Raimi-verse didn't dive into the ready availability of camera phones until the third film. I get what you're...

    I think "The Night Gwen Stacy Died" has held up *ahem* amazingly. It's not just an important story to the mythos it's a really well told one. The epilogue with MJ is one of the best moments in...

    I recall enjoying Spider-Man: Reign. It felt like a highly personal vision to the author/artist. There are places where he really just goes for it--some work better than others. The Doc Ock...

    Has Joy Mercado resurfaced any time in the last ten years? I can't recall.

    Those are haunting lyrics, Scott. Thanks for sharing.

    Every day is an opportunity to be Christ for those in need, but in times like this, it feels more true than ever (though of course, the...

    Probably, given the spike in cases. Things are changing rapidly. Restaurants voluntarily ending dine-in eating, things along those lines.

    Sorry if I sounded judgmental. It's great your church is...

    I can definitely see the potential in bringing Jessica Carradine back (whose name I'd completely forgotten).

    To be honest, the more I think about it, the more problematic half-measures can become if people think they're sufficient.

    I understand that people really want to meet in person for church...

    Those are decent measures and it's a very good devotional.

    That said, even with all those precautionary measures in place I think the best course right now is to cancel in-person church services...

    LOL. I get it, I really do. And some of my frustration for comics probably carries over into the show unfairly. But I do feel like Caitlyn and Cisco have had some big moments in fight scenes.

    I really liked Wally's depiction here. Pretty consistent with how he always had more of a spiritual connection to the Speed Force than Barry, though it was more intuitive in the comics than...

    Our minister did a great job with a new format and I applaud her for making the difficult choice. These are strange times we live in but it's really...

    Been re-reading the early part of the Lee/Ditko run. There are some standout issues--the Goblin two-parter that kicks it all off, and the Kingpin three-parter, but some long stretches of goofiness...

    Been re-reading the early part of the Lee/Ditko run and it's interesting how different Gwen is.

    The banter with MJ is great. Hard to say if they're friends or enemies or something in between.

    Yeah, exactly. Which is pretty consistent with the Lee/Ditko version--even before the accident, Otto Octavius is depicted as a cold man who keeps people at a distance. He was always deeply flawed,...

    I think it's basically King's take on "10 Nights of the Beast"/Year Three in the same way he plays with whether Batman and Catwoman's first meeting lines up with the Golden Age or Miller's Year One.

    Gordon floating the possibility that Batman knew the spies would save KGBeast could be read as being informed by Wolfman's Year Three retcon of "Ten Nights of the Beast." Dick pointed out that Bruce...
