Augie buys Marvel's new Erik Larsen "Spider-Man: Sinister Six" collection purely out of nostalgia and asks: does it hold up, nearly 20 years later? Plus, can modern printing processes accurately recapture newsprint's charm?
I loved that Sinister Six story by Michelinie and Larsen. The only thing that made it less than spectacular was the fact that it followed Todd's run. How do you follow that?:)
I actually read all of the Michelinie/McFarlane and Michelinie/Larsen issues over the Christmas holidays last year and found myself enjoying the Larsen issues more than the McFarlane ones. Not sure why my opinion changed from my younger years but these are still my favorite issues of ASM. I would be more than happy to fork over my money to Marvel for a Michelinie/McFarlane/Larsen ASM Omnibus!
