Re: Stories

Hello, all! First of all, I'd like to thank you all for being the only website with all these goodies available that doesn't get blocked at School. Really helps kill the restlessness during Study hall. Next, I would like some advice. You see, in a bit of fury over the loss of Spectacular Spider-man...

Re: Podcast #482 ASM Reviews What Did you think?

I have to disagree with George on his commentary about Mary Jane in the second issue reviewed. The scene references something MJ literally did back in the 70s before even the first proposal. Fact is Peter isn't so old that his friends giving him a helping hand when times are tough should be a source...

A bit of a bright side to OMD 10 years later

I know some people might be bummed by the realization that we’ve been living with the burning garbage pile that is post-One More Day Spider-Man for a full decade now. So I’d like to make this post for people to look on the bright side of this sorry situation. To begin with, we have Renew Your Vows. ...

Re: Podcast #483-Spider-News What Did You Think?

Also on the topic of Jameson knowing Peter's identity I have to agree with Zach. The question really comes down to whether Jameson's affection for Peter is stronger or weaker than his hatred of Spider-Man. And well...Civil War answered that for us over 10 years ago. For Jameson his vendetta against ...

Re: Podcast #483-Spider-News What Did You Think?

You guys spoke of the Ultimate Universe so I just want to share this quick little story. In the UK there were three magazines that reprinted Ultimate comics. Ultimate Spider-Man, Ultimate X-Men and Ultimate Fantastic Four. Each one, exempting extra length stories like annuals, reprinted 2 issues eve...

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

My big takeaway from Slott's departure in March. Bassically he’s going to leave with ASM #800. He hung on this long so he can live in the history books as: -The guy who’s written the MOST Spider-Man issues -The guy who’s had the longest RUN on any 616 Spider-Man title -The only writer to have writte...

Re: Mary Jane Appreciation Thread

Moroever Spec is better yes but it'sfar from unproblematic. Like I'm sorry...was the Jameson issue you know...good or did it merely not suck? Because when I read it I saw a Spider-Man who was acting in a grossly out of character and ridiculous way contrary to his history who endangered himself, his...

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

Ben Reilly and Mephisto getting heavy play in multiple Marvel titles this March. Ben takes on Mephisto to undo Parker’s deal, restore his “brother’s” marriage, and bring Baby May back into existence? Probably not, but I can dream. Glad Ben is getting a push though. Means his title is sticking aroun...

:roll: Editorial Mandate is written all over that response. Blessing in disguise after his deplorable Free COmic book day issue and abominable Rebecca London crap.

Re: Why Rebooting is bad and why continuity actually matters

It’s not a 1:1 thing though. Nobody hated the mindwipe for merely existing but hated the PROBLEMS it opened up because of how clumsily it was done and hated that it was needed because the unmasking was so ill conceived. A lot of Marvel's current problems with readers might stem out of their lazy st...

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

-Sony will be next for Disney to acquire and not just for Spider-Man, they’d get Ghostbusters and I think James Bond right? From what I recall Bond is not owned by Sony. They are just the current license owners. I'm not a big Bond fan, but I do believe that is the case. -I expect the villains of fu...

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

The sad thing about this Disney/FOX deal is that people are now retconning history much like they did with the Raimi movies to pretend that the X-Men movies were unsuccessful/always bad when...they really weren't that. There was TWO bad movies and one movie people labelled bad when it was at worst a...

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

Reflections on Disney buying 20th Century FOX -I’m very happy for the Fantastic Four to hopefully no longer get shafted in the comics and equally hopefully be FINALLY done right on film. Disney’s main brand as family entertainment would actually work very well with the FF -I am 100% certain within f...
