    See, I read that scene a bit differently. It's true that she sort of cut him off and didn't "mother" him over the incident but look at the facts: Peter was clearly fine and uninjured. Since MJ has...

    CBR really needs to get off it's collective ass and add that "like" button stat.

    Precisely how I feel; a lot of people are glossing over the fact that she is in a relationship with someone else-----for the first time in a very, very long while. I get that fans who grew up on the...

    I gotta go with a solid "A"; I had a few nitpicks along the way but ultimately that's all they were: nitpicks. For the first time, I felt Slott really stuck the landing on a big widescreen adventure...

    Poll: Rate "Goblin Nation" (SSM #27-31)

    Well, not only is "Superior" over but so is "Goblin Nation", Slott's biggest arc on this title and one of the biggest Spidey arcs in years. It may be hard to rate the overall story (and not just...

    After re-reading the issue, I still have mixed feelings though mostly I thought it was good. The Norman escape still bothers me as the "jammer" scene was a whopping one panel and it still doesn't...

    Eh, MJ has been written many different ways over the years. In the pre-marriage years she was usually pretty flaky; she wasn't flaky at all here but she started a new life with Ollie and just didn't...

    Like many others here, I have mixed feelings about this finale. It's mostly satisfying but I honestly felt like Peter's victory is #30 seemed a lot bigger than his victory here. The Goblin escaping...

    In my opinion, the Superior Mega-Arc (to me, defined by ASM #698-SSM #31 out today) has been Slott's finest work on the character and the first time his "summer blockbuster widescreen adventure" type...

    Congrats, that's pretty sweet. Looks like it could be a notch or two higher from what I can tell though; are you buying these online or at a LCS?

    Nice review, Russ!! Yes, I loved Stern's SSM run as well and it definitely set things up for his ASM run, though one did not need to read one to understand the other.

    Huh. In all honesty, Ozy and you are the first that I have heard felt this way about Andru. It's a perfectly valid opinion but I suppose most of my interaction has been with those who, like myself,...

    I've agree that his Aunt May, particularly in that shot, looked terrible. But I just can't agree with your statement that there was "nothing special" in the way Andru drew buildings. I can't think...

    Wow.....this is a tough one as the 1980's were, to me, Spidey's finest decade overall. But if we are to focus just on ASM for now (and let me add that PP:SSM had some incredible stories as well), I...

    His Aunt May in general was overly frail and geriatric-looking, I will grant you that, but that was her look during Ditko's run as well. I also think the Ock/May wedding was the low point of...

    I would have been down with that. Count me as one of those guys who, while I didn't "prefer" Ben to Peter, felt there was room for this approach back then. Heck, they could probably still do it if...

    Oh, I can't agree there. Although I will admit that I liked the way Andru portrayed cityscapes more than anything else but I thought he drew a great Peter, a gorgeous MJ and most of the villains...

    Y'know, I think there was a real chance things would have gone that way had the Ben Reilly Spidey been executed better; once Peter and MJ had the baby, there was no way they would have faded away or...

    Yeah, that was a great series all the way around: Kurt's stories, Oliffe's art and the unbelievably great .99 price point! Small wonder it was on the top of my read list each week and also...

    Yes, that Mysterio story was good without being great and you raise a great point that much of the problem with Ben as Spidey was really the same issues with the Peter as Spidey stories from that...
