Great podcast again...
However, I think the gang has mellowed a bit on it's grading. Although I do agree that the other issues ranged in the on the better side of the BND stories, I was surprised on how restrained everyone was on the Obama back story. I know it was filler, but it was not very good and giving it a C is really generous...I guess the F was being saved for the extra!
In February of 1977, I was not collecting Spider-Man every month yet, (that started with issue ASM #194), but whenever I saw Spider-Man on the spin rack at either the grocery store or K-Mart, I would pick one up with my allowance. I missed out on ASM #165 when it came out, but remember picking up Marvel Team-Up #49 and #50 a few months before, and a couple months later I picked up ASM#169 and Marvel Tales #78 and #79, (in a three pack baggie with a Marvel Two in One!).
BD, the day in Spider-Man history was fun. Maybe next time you can mix it up a bit, and have one from 5 years ago, one from 10 years, and another from 25 or sometihing.
...keep 'em going. I listen as I organize my collection and it keeps getting in better shape each month!
