    Thanks to Marvel Unlimited. I been trying to read every issue of ASM ever from AF15 - Spencers run. I'm just up to issue 10 with the Foswell and the Enforcers debuts.

    I tend to alternate reading between old and new myself. To prep up for Absolute Carnage, I read a lot of the Michelinie stuff and Maximum Carnage (which yeah, it's not good). Donny Cates is very Michelinie-inspired.

    If you like Vulture, wait till you read Roger Stern's run since he wrote Vulture very well.

    I've been continuing to re-read the 90's Clone Saga, reaching the 'Ben as Spidey' era. It is easy to see why it is such a forgotten period, as it was fairly brief and very little of it has been touched on since. There are definitely some hidden gems here though, most notably Dan Jurgens' run on Sensational Spider-Man.

    I am possibly biased, as these were some of the first ever comics that I read as a 5 year old back in the 90's, but I think his time on the title is criminally ignored. It is hard to explain what I like about it so much, but even next to more recent runs like Slott's, his style of storytelling feels very modern and streamlined. Without seeming as though he was trying to hard, he managed to get Spider-Man back to basics in the space of a couple of issues. Ironically (as he hated writing the character) his Ben Reilly is a breath of fresh air, as is the new supporting cast that he managed to introduce without any real fuss. His artwork is terrific - again, it has aged very well and stands apart from a lot of the '90's style' artwork around at the time. Re-reading the issues now, he actually manages to make Mark Bagley's artwork over on ASM look ordinary, which is no mean feat.

    Unfortunately his run was pretty brief, and the other titles aren't really up to the same standard. Over on ASM it seems a little like Tom Defalco is going through the motions, churning out solid but unspectacular tales in the classic Spider-Man fashion alongside Bagley. Howard Mackie was clearly enjoying himself over on 'Spider-Man', and while his scripts are quite workmanlike they are elevated by fantastic artwork from Romita Jr and Klaus Janson. I like Todd Dezago, but his Sensational run with Buscema is pretty forgettable really. The fact that the four titles were crossing over constantly really makes for some uneven storytelling, which is much tighter than in the bad old days of the Clone Saga, but still hampers arcs like 'Media Blizzard'.

    If you aren't familiar with this era I'd really recommend checking it out. It doesn't deserve to stand among the truly classic Spider-Man runs, but there are some enjoyable stories in there and it's a shame that it ultimately ended up being cut short.

    Dan Jurgens actually worked as an artist for a short comic with Gerry Conway in a Spectacular Annual in the '80s. The artwork there also struck out very well.

    Finally checked out Mark Millar & the Dodsons' Marvel Knights: Spider-Man, and it was such a genuine surprise for me. I honestly think that may be Millar's best Marvel work, its a project that's devoid of alot of his indulgences that effect much of his other projects, and just tells a straightforwardly good Spider-Man story.

    Extremely strong Goblin story, makes great use of the ensemble of villains, has real stakes and new dynamics regarding Spider-Man and his identity not as throughly explored before, Millar writes MJ and Felicia extremely well, and the Dodsons' art is extremely charming and energetic as usual.
    Current Reading List: Amazing Spider-Man, Spider-Gwen: Ghost Spider, Sonic The Hedgehog, Absolute Carnage, Friendly Neighbourhood Spider-Man, Gwenpool Strikes Back, Runaways, The White Trees

    Totally agree with this 100%. Signed. Double Signed. Triple Signed. Hepta-Signed. MK: Spider-Man redeems Millar from Civil War and Old Man Logan. It hasn't had the influence those other two have but parts of MK:Spider-Man definitely influence Greg Weisman's Spectacular which borrowed the idea of villains being created by corporations to keep superheroes from going after big capital...and the more cunning, suave, and charismatic take on Norman Osborn and Goblin, making both sides work.

    Yeah. It's a 12 issue series that feels as dense and compact as an entire ongoing run of Spider-Man. It's like Millar said, "probably won't ever get to do ASM but let me do in 12 issues what I would have done in 40-50".

    And it's probably for the best since Millar is not good at ongoing as he is at shorter series.

    Carnage: USA #1

    I got really excited while reading this, had some really great horror vibes leading up to the......eye-rolling cliffhanger.

    Ok, you have The Thing right there, and you're telling me that Carnage is strong enough to take over The Thing? I don't know about this one....I'll still finish the series. But the rest of it better not be Spidey vs Symbiote Avengers.

    Just read the first issues of the Black Cat series. Am really digging it. I have always been a fan of hers and am glad to see she got her own book. Is this a mini or an ongoing?
