I really like Dan Slott and from looks of it more of recognition that Spidey is actually an Avenger but Humberto Ramos as the artist is a deal breaker for me.
I've been buying Spidey since the "Road to Civil War" and just dropped the book at the end of OMIT, the book has been pretty weak in my opinion and when I saw the art in 642 (Azaceta&Martin) I was out, to me the art was lazy and horrible (photoshoped backgrounds and stick figures).
I really like Spidey and have faith that Dan Slott will take the book in a good direction I just wish they would put a good artist on it.
I really don't like the "cartoony" style, it really kills the book for me, McGuiness is ok but not too much beyond that.
Layouts are really freaking difficult to put together. I think they're the hardest part about making comics, striking a balance between intensity and clarity, and on that note, I'd just like to say that Marcos really isn't "lazy" by any stretch of the imagination. But I respect not liking his actual style. It is a bit of an acquired taste.
The big test will be if Peter ever feels comfortable enough to tell her that he's Spider-Man. If he is, and she takes it well, then all's good. If she doesn't, just write her off quickly without any long-term angst, huh?
Intellect and Romance over Brute Force and Cynicism!
The dating issue showed a galagtic rise in sales, at least it was there for that issue only
I guess Big Time first part only will sell with a little near 100k and then prices will vary from 60k-80k, then a major fall back to 56k

Aside from the inevitable bump in sales (which could be either small or large depending on the rarity of the variant covers) due to the variant covers, I predict sales of ASM to continue to fall due to normal sales attrition.
