    I wish but Peter will be swinging around in the real world in this fighting robots, breaking into buildings, eating sandwiches, etc. while also being in the dream thing.It's don't think it's tied into Beyond

    You raise a very good point there.

    I agree but depends on the writer type.Hickman/Ewing/Cates are in their prime rn and would be a W for most titles, whereas Slott/Bendis/Aaron are a curse.

    True. Not-so-well-known writers can at least surprise us in more positive ways, whereas better-known writers are more likely to crash and burn these days.

    Honestly, after the last two issues of ASM, I’d be happy with Wells/Gleason being a permanent team on ASM after Beyond. I know that’s not happening though. (I guess Wells isn’t an unknown, but I don’t think he qualifies as a heavy-hitter either)

    That's reasonable enough.

    Spooky & Monster stuff mixes surprisingly well with Spider-Man. I remember reading that story with Spiders stalking Peter, whatwashisname - The Thousand? Fun read. Also Lizard, Venom, Carnage, Vermin are basically Monsters.

    The six arm saga is a pretty good spooky story in itself. Isolated and nearly abandoned Summer mansion, Morbius, the Lizard, six-arm spidey....

    I think the reason spooky and monster stuff mix so well with Spider-Man is that under the wrong circumstances, his origin story could have easily been the start of a horror story, and the only reason it didn't turn out like that was Peter being confronted early enough with the consequences of power used selfishly and irresponsibly in the form of the thief who killed his Uncle Ben, whom he'd previously dismissed as not being his problem.

    Spooky and supernatural stuff was more or less Todd MacFarlane's pitch for his adjectiveless Spidey book back in the 90's, wasn't it?

    Yeah, and right after that was the two-part arc with Hobgoblin (still demonically possessed at the time) and Ghost Rider (Danny Ketch/Noble Kale).
