I'm planning to start reading some Spider-Man comics. I have a couple of stories I'm planning to read. I was wondering if anyone could give me a quick, several sentence review of each.
- Spider-Man Blue - Specifically, how does it rank relative to Loeb's work on Batman and Superman
- Mark Millar's Spider-Man (Marvel Knights)
Any other recommendations are welcome. Bearing in mind I like a more grounded approach to the stories with a focus on the central characters. I'm not usually big on stories which draw in other characters from the Marvel Universe. I like to keep limit it to just Spider-Man and his supporting cast.

Your name is Kal-El. You are the only survivor of the planet Krypton. Even though you've been raised as a human being, you are not one of them
No idea where it stands continuity-wise, but I would highly recommend this collection. Have fun!
Q: Why didn't Marvel name that Spider-Man clone Spider-Boy?
Q: How come "Spider-Boy" never got a mini-series?
How did ya feel about this? Is this really how it was suppose to end with Harry behnd everything? It was a good read all in all though.
Our dilemma is that we hate change and love it at the same time; what we really want is for things to remain the same but get better.

I believe this was in the JMS run, when Peter was a teacher. I can't quite remember who he was living in but that was around the time I stopped reading JMS. Anyway, he had a new set of friends and they tried to set him up with some girl. I think the girl was dressed in leather and had...er, whips and stuff.
Is this some messed up dream of mine or did this actually happen? If yes, did something come out of it or...? On the note of this "new set of friends" - what happened to them?
Thanks a lot!

I'm very far behind in Amazing Spider-man (early 600's). I read the story where the Chameleon (disguised as Peter) calls the wheelchair-bound Flash "Puny Flash." You could tell this hurt Flash and I was eager to see what repercussions that would lead to in the friendship between Peter and Flash but I read the next few issues and Flash wasn't in them which was disappointing.
So my questions are:
After that story, what happens to the friendship between the two?
Do they ever address the "Puny Flash" insult?
(Also, issue numbers along with the answers to those questions would be greatly appreciated).
how much is each issue of spiderman? and what are the dates they come out, i have heard its 3 a month??, the amazing spiderman i am talking about, i have tried searching the internet but everything apart from what i am asking is coming up so any help will be appreciated.

Q: Anyone know when Spider-Man 2099 comics will return?
During the Other, Peter was reborn in a way.
They said his missing tonsils grew back and all scars and broken bones had been restored. Even his missing eye grew back.
Like with his totem powers we never got a clear answer as to what happened to this because of OMD.
However, we do know The Other and the Ezekiel + Morlun arcs are still in continuity due to the events of Grim Hunt showing Kaine becoming a pseudo-quasi totem Spider, and "Ezekiel's ghost" haunting Peter early on.
So I wonder: What happened to Peter's totem powers? Does Peter still have his tonsils?
My theory is that since The Other still took place the totem powers were only temporary and went away on their own due to the machinations of the mythical web of balance referenced at the end of Spider-Island which gave Peter the option to quit being a hero without ramifications.
