    Default Rate it: FNSM by Tom Taylor

    Finally got all caught up with Tom Taylor's FNSM and finished the whole volume.

    I loved it, Taylor clearly gets the character right, and issues #5, #6, #11 & #14 are some of the finest spider-issues this year, if not this decade.

    Mediocre to boring with the exception of like 2/3 really good issues.

    I really enjoyed this run overall and am sad that it is over. Tom Taylor really understood the character and delivered some very solid stories.

    I'd say poor.

    I didn't like the direction, I felt the characterisation was off and the art didn't thrill me. I read the first 6 or so issues and dropped it. I may read the rest at some point, but I won't be rushing to do so.

    Any chance of adding a pole? We sometimes get more responses that way.
    Just. Be. Nice.

    I did not like it. This Mainie character is putting me off and this underyork story doesn't do it for me.

    Every issue read in like five minutes and I forgot what happened after I closed it.

    Art never really captured me but it was a solid title. Spider Bit and the Maryjane stand alone issue were absolute classics. The series had potential but didnít last long enough to realize it.

    I've decided to add a poll to this question.

    I'll answer it myself after I reread all 14 issues.
    Sincerely,

    I went with A, mostly because it was an excellent highlight for the character of Spider-Man and modern Marvel as a whole. Didn't go with A+ because it wasn't the absolute best thing that Marvel ever produced, but it was very good.

    Semi-OFF question: where/when does the second huge story-arc (Hostile Takeovers) take place?
