    Default Opinions on a Next Creative Team

    Guys/Girls, after Spencer's run, what would be your next creative team? Any favorites?

    Mine would be Zdarsky/Checchetto, for the amazing work they're doing on Daredevil.

    I'm not completly convinced by Cates considering his Absolute Carnage, but that mostly has to do with me not being a big fan of anti-hero Venom, he was otherwise fine.

    I kind of want to see PAD having a proper run in ASM but that would never happen.

    Kirkman would also be an interesting option, but i doubt than that is possible.

    Agreed on Kirkman. Another (not possible) choice I'd like to see would be Geoff Johns: Hulk and Spidey are, by far, his favorite Marvel characters, the ones He repeated several times He would buy and bring to DC.

    That's a fantastic creative team. Particularly, Larraz is perfect for Spidey.

    Chip Zdarsky (with Marco Checchetto) having a run on The Amazing Spider-Man after relaunching Peter Parker: The Spectacular Spider-Man and then doing Spider-Man: Life Story would be incredible. And yeah, I'd be interested in seeing what Kelly Thompson or Leah Williams could bring to Spider-Man, since I liked Thompson's respect for Peter/MJ in Jessica Jones: Blind Spot, and Williams did such an excellent job with Amazing Mary Jane, I'd love to see if she could work some of that same magic with Peter. After that scene in the AXIS tie-in for Captain America and the Mighty Avengers where Spider-Man briefly brandished Captain America's shield to rebuke the Inverted Avengers for their strongarm tactics against the Mighty Avengers, proclaiming that that wasn't how Avengers --- or heroes in general --- were supposed to behave, I'd love to see Al Ewing do a Spider-Man run, too, especially in a similar vein to Immortal Hulk where he could reinterpret and redefine the Spider-Mythos.

    I'm not feeling Kirkman as an artist. It feels like something out of the Simpsons.

    Donny Cates has thrown his hat in the ring a while back, and he's a proven seller what with Venom doing well on his work and all. At the same time, I'm not entirely sure he'd be the best fit for Spider-Man.

    I like Gerry Duggan's work on Marauders and Cable, and I think he might be a good fit for Spider-Man in terms of humor and seriousness.

    Zdarsky I think wants to move over to DC after he does Daredevil, which he said multiple times is his favorite comic. After you do your fave what is there to compare?

    Another name I'd like to throw in is Christopher Cantwell. Cantwell's made a name for himself as a writer for his Doctor Doom series, and his first issue for Iron Man I thought was quite good. So he might do well with Spider-Man. He's shown interest in Spider-Man characters as the final panel of Doctor Doom #7 makes clear. Cantwell's writing in Doom and Iron Man is all about taking a (very JMS-esque) down-to-earth approach to big characters, and that makes him a natural fit for "the friendly neighborhood Spider-Man".

    As for artists -- Pepe Larraz is good, actually the X-Men artists right now are pretty good in general (except for Fallen Angels) and just raiding the X-Cabinet is a good idea.

    I also think Zdarsky has said pretty much everything he has left to say about Spider-Man.

    Music for my ears.

    As for another writer, i kind of want to see Jody Houser take on Peter, i mean his was a supporting characther in her Renew Your Vows and maybe she isn't going to do a great job with him as the lead, but i'm willing to give her a chance.

    I couldn't agree more.

    Christopher Cantwell could be an interesting pick for Spider-Man. Given that so far, his Doctor Doom and Iron Man would indicate a penchant for epic (and epically flawed) protagonists that he can bring down to Earth and humanize in a way that other writers before couldn't or didn't, I'd be curious to see his take on Spider-Man, who's already (among) the most down-to-Earth and humanized of Marvel's top-tier characters.

    Thanks for mentioning Jody Houser. I liked her Renew Your Vows, especially issue 19 (a flashback to Annie's younger years) that focused more on Peter and Mary Jane's marriage, and she had a pretty good take on Peter addressing the "great power, great responsibility" speech to a teenaged Annie in her first arc. With those in mind, I think she could do a pretty good job with Peter's character, particularly juxtaposed with his and Mary Jane's relationship.

    Thanks.
    I still dissapointed that i didn't get my clones and i felt cheated for that. But i did enjoy the run, even if it was less Spider-Family and more "Annie are you ok?..." . Plus that 19 issue was awesome.

    In practical terms, only a small handful of writers on a second series ongoing has ever gone on to do ASM. So Zdarsky is out on that ground alone.

    As a rule editors like to give ASM to writers who will
    A) do a long run,
    B) are incentivized to do a long run, i.e. hadn't done many long runs before and so for them Spider-Man is the big break.

    So generally ASM was given to writers who are somewhat new to Marvel, people of a slightly lower profile than others.
