Re: The Over Shipping of Books?

Overall it may not be a lie...but it does not bolster fan or retailer confidence in Marvel in the long run. IMHO...it does more harm than good and just shows Marvels desperation in engaging in short-term tactics such as over shipping. A company that is healthy and profitable does not have to engage...

Dan Slott Leaving Amazing Spider-Man, Will Write Iron Man https://www.cbr.com/dan-slott-leaves-amazing-spider-man-iron-man/ While I'm ecstatic at him FINALLY leaving, I am also worried, because if Mary Jane is still in Iron Man when he takes over, I'm scared of what he might do with her. This worri...

Re: The overly-long goodbye (aka, thread for the end of Slott's ASM run)

Wow...Slott seemed to just confirm everything we have all been critisizing him for these many long years. Every time he opened his mouth in that interview he just condemned himself so badly. Good riddance to bad rubbish I say.

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

I think Quesada still hates the marriage and that Renew Your Vows,the MJ alternate covers,etc...were just token gestures on Marvel's part as a way to keep Quesadas "vision" of an unmarried Spider-Man in tact while allowing Marvel to have their cake and eat it too. Fans of the marriage are constantly...

Tom King posted this yesterday on Twitter.

Can you imagine slott saying something like this, and even remotely meaning it?

No, he would just attack anyone who would dare say a bad word about his work.

Now there is a perfect example of a professional!

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

Peter and Bobbi's relationship is about as substantial and meaningful as the one he had with Lien/Lian. So, their "break-up" will probably carry the bang you got from Pop Rocks fizzing in your mouth. See, there I went for a very 1980s thing, didn't I? All this Dan Slott-in-retrospect stuff has me a...

Re: What Will Dan Slott's Legacy Be?

There was one guy over at CBR's thread that I agreed with -- that when Slott was good, he specialized in fun stories with zippy premises, but his stories were superficial (I think that was the word used). This is why I used to compare Slott's ASM to Knight Rider or The A-Team. Very 1980s TV adventu...

Re: What Will Dan Slott's Legacy Be?

I think slott likes to try and ignore a lot of uncomfortable realities. He wanted to ignore that there was a very vocal segment of the fandom that wanted Peter & Mary Jane together. He downplayed this at every turn. He wanted to ignore the existing Spidey cast, to the point that he excised them all...

Re: What Will Dan Slott's Legacy Be?

I didn't care about his characters. Max Modell, Grady Scrapps, Sajani Jaffrey, Anna Maria Marconi, Andrew Maguire, his version of Tiberius Stone, the newly-villainous Phil Urich, the newly crazy/murdering Ben Reilly, Dexter Bennett, Carlie Cooper, Vin Gonzales, Sara Ehret, Alana Jobson, Augustus Ro...

Re: What Will Dan Slott's Legacy Be?

I really don't think Slott will have much of a Legacy to speak of once his run is over. He will be known for Superior and that's it IMHO.
Slott ruined any Legacy he might have ever had by having a real crappy attitude.

If anything Aubrey was probably just another weak "yes" man like Slott who agreed with whatever Quesada wanted done with the character.

Re: Post the ASM issue from when you were born.

Since I was born on July 19th of 1971...my issue would be # 100 {2 months later}...which was released in September of that year written by the great Stan Lee and drawn by John Romita. Amazing Spider-Man Vol 1 100 "The Spider or the Man?" http://www.breeze-gallery.co.uk/images/products/large/915.jpg

Re: The Best & Worst of 2017

I avoided Secret Empire due to its...less than stellar reputation, so I can't say. What did you think the worst Spider-Man story was this year? Clone Conspiracy...Slott took one of my favorite characters from the 90's {Ben Reilly} and tried to destroy his character for lame ass wanna be shock value...
