WW Chicago: Bendis on "Ultimate Spider-Man"
The second half of 2008 is going to be a memorable one for "Ultimate Spider-
Man" fans. CBR News spoke with writer Brian Michael Bendis about his plans for
Dont know why Bendis is so worried about the reaction...not unless Peter chokes at the last minute
This is a pretty big deal, but it's also a very positive one.

Bendis- always the company man!
Ultimate Spider-Man is NOT going to be cancelled. That's the bottom line
