Re: What's in Store for Spider-Man in Fall /Winter 2017/2018?

Not been following this storyline due to other stuff but what's this about removing Loki's favour now? Are we talking about the one hanging over from the JMS run? What happened? Well then i'm sorry to tell you but Slott used the favor in the past issue for Peter to save a ramdom person that was kil...

How would YOU write the first issue of the post-Slott era?

If YOU could do whatever you wanted as the lead writer of ASM the very next issue after Slott what would you do?

Me?

I'd timeskip forward a year and do a story not dissimilar to the first BND issue, setting up the new status quo that'd be 'shockingly' similar to the old status quo from 2004

Re: Name all the times, Slott made the franchise worse

Wrote Peter like a twelve year old. Even though canonically he is almost 30. Yeah, I almost said that, but have you seen what high school students are doing these days? Their smart, impassioned response to Parkland, regardless of one's politics, is admirable IMO. So I didn't want to insult the fift...

Re: Name all the times, Slott made the franchise worse

Name all the times Slott made the franchise worse?

Okay.

There was that time he started typing his first issue.

Then there was that time he finished typing his last.

And then there were all those times in between

Re: Podcast # 490 Slott Exit, What Did You think?

Thank god he's gone is what I say. On what was specifically said on the show though I'm sorry JR but...what was so bad about Michelinie's ASM run that it was worse than: a) DeMatteis' where he had Spidey enter a web cocoon I don't blame DeMatteis for that. That was more of the direction Marvel was ...

Here is a review of the last ASM issue Dan Slott Doesn't Write Spider-Man for New Readers https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2i4uoFHV0Hk Whether a book is accessible is difficult for someone who isn't a new reader to critique. A story can be complex and build on what's come before, but still have deta...

Re: Slott's run - an alternate theory

I don't think you'll find much disagreement on these board that Slott has come up with some creative concepts. As ideas, Superior, Spider Island, Spider-Verse, even Clone Conspiracy and Worldwide/Peter Starker are inventive and fun, if a bit overly reliant on merely flipping conventions and deconst...

Re: What's in Store for Spider-Man in Fall /Winter 2017/2018?

Mets what I am getting from you is that your attitudes to how the stories in Spider-Man should happen are built upon a bedrock presumption and faith in the illusion of change creative model. If that is so then here is the thing. The illusion of change doesn’t work. As in it has a hard proven track r...

Either Jumanki is just awesome or else this is really humiliating. Also didn't Jumanji surpass Last Jedi too?

Re: AMAZING SPIDER-MAN Volume 4 Discussion

The whole series of Peter bungling along as a third-rate Tony Stark has been bad. Slott didn't understand advanced sciences, finance, or business to even show just how submerged Peter was. And normal Peter would have gone and found someone to be the CEO for him, or sold it. It honestly felt like Sl...

Re: What's in Store for Spider-Man in Fall /Winter 2017/2018?

Even though I feel Thomas Mets defends Slott's ASM work much too uncritically, I'll agree with him to a point here. In serial story-telling, which features a popular and essential lead character for years, the central character cannot be allowed to change too much. I've watched long-term TV program...
