    Go fuck yourself.

    Seriously.

    Go. Fuck. Yourself.
    I nearly spit soup laughing.....sorry ya feel bad Dan Slott. I know im not a fan of the current direction and I have to admit thats the best possible answer if what he posted was serious. I can pretty much say I would have posted the same way.

    Yeah...I mean at least post a smiley or something in the joke. That the writer can tell your joking around. I'm sure if someone who is sick and isn't well...reads that....he's not gonna be in a good mood.

    I voted for 7-10 years, I sure hope he does more than 200 ASM issues during his own BIG TIME

    From what I read of his work and Bendis, I can't tell which one of them is a bigger Spidey nerd among comic creators
    The way people define true fans, do you have some sort of programming in you? What does that mean? It's nonsense

    I went with 3-4 years, because I know Dan has a lot of ideas he wants to explore and whilst the sales figures remain high Marvel won't get rid of hjim. In today's market 3-4 years is the longest ruin that can really be expected though (much as I'd like longer!)

    cheers.

    I see him going for as long as Grant Morrison on Batman or Bendis on USM, I just hope none of what he introduces or advances will be retconned once he leaves, we've already had more than enough of that

    I'm with Slott.

    Every book he's been on, She-Hulk, Avengers: The Initiative, and now Spidey have been fun, character-driven, brilliant adventures. I'm guessing 3-4 years. (And why the hell would you compare him to Chuck Austen? He's about as far from that as anything I could think of.)

    Anyhow, yeah. Get better Dan, and stay as long as you want to, and they'll let you.

    Dan, feel better and don't let the random trolls get to you---as you can tell from the vast majority of posts here and reviews elsewhere, your first two issues of "Big Time" have been about as well-received as any issues of ASM in recent memory. Well done and, again, feel better!

    One thing Slott has done in 2 short issues is proved that the BND method of rotating writers, while not a definitive failure, held back each writer's best efforts. These first two issues are head and shoulders above just about all of Slott's work on ASM over the last 3 years and there was some pretty great stuff there. Makes one wonder what would happen is, say, Joe Kelly was given his own satellite title alongside Slott's ASM?

    if they did that id actually want the price down on ASM.... Perhaps bring back Spectacular Spider-man. Start it at a new #1 and place the old numbering in there soon after.

    Yeah, agreed.....I would go a bit further and say I would not mind if ASM went back to monthly with Slott and then added Spec with Kelly and a new Marvel TeamUp (with Fred Van Lente or Mark Waid writing)----all at $2.99.

    boooo im fine with twice a month, i just dont want a satellite book thats $3.99 or $2.99 if asm is $3.99. (though i dont feel ripped off by the pricing on ASM in any way)

    every dan slott book is full of great ideas and threads and everyone seems to end to soon. even his mini series arkham asylum could have gone on for a while with all the details laid out.

    i am happy he gets spiderman to himself now. now he can flesh out all the hints and secrets laid out. i hope we get a good mystery and a scifi tale somewhere in there. i know reckoning war is out of the question with ASM(says breevhort on formspring) which is what i am really interested in. but this is going prett good so far. i say 6 years of danslott asm.
