The people claiming it is stale only show the lack of imagination they have, as the character is returned once again to 20 years old...wow, we never seen that before. Keeping the character relevant? Please. Maybe it is time to create new Marvel Heroes, instead of destroying and retelling well-worn old stories.

...As for the Osborn confrontation...without spoiling anything....I loved it, it was page upon page of a fine wine, the Harry/Norman confrontation that Slott failed to deliver. No "World's Greatest Dad" mug, no "It's in our blood, join me Harry and together we'll rule the galaxy as father and son" rubbish, this was real back-to-back "What the hell have you been doing?" argumentitive ferocity. Naked aggresion immediate and condensing years of missed oppertunities into one very decisive showdown. Harry came across as his old DeMatties-era self with a little dose of Slott's interpretation to match. A welcome releif from the rich man's Jughead he's been in a sea of Archie-level low-brow mediocrity.

Is it explained in the comics that Norman's wife died giving birth to Harry (kinda new to Spider-Man comics)?
Interested in Harry loving Gwen, wondering what that meant when Pete and Gwen were in love.
Would Tony have agreed to Pete's offer that fast without any counter offer?

“And every time Spider-Man saves a life, May Parker’s spirit is alive and well and doing good in the world.”
I might have inserted the words "Ben & May Parker's" instead. Because with Aunt May's death, she essentially is playing the same role Uncle Ben did and has over the years.
I keep going back to what JR said in a previous podcast. Why replace a classic with a knock-off? You wrote Norman sooooo well, why kill him off? The Green Goblin is Spidey's number one villain. I bitched back in the 1990s when they resurrected him, but I really have enjoyed his return.
I also am a bit concerned about the "whacking policy". Aunt May and Norman just in two issues? WOWZA! Ms. Lion got whacked off panel. I'm not a fiction writer, so I don't know about the process. I don't know how to write on-going fiction and have forward movement, all the time trying to keep the status-quo. Sure death stories are classics. ASM 400 and Spec #200 stand out, but they were both undone. I guess my point is, death is not permanent and has almost become too cliche.
You have a great talent for dialog. The characters had their distinct voices. Your words also are easy to imagine and would hop off the page if you were teamed with the right penciler. Deodato comes to mind as the perfect match. Keep the issues coming, I'm hooked.
