Have you read Scalped or The Other Side? Both are excellent. The man writes more than Wolverine.
Quick update--ASM v2 with JRJR cover is sold out at ToW and IST. Check out CGN, mycomicshop, or tfaw.com at this point... either Marvel is cutting way back on the variants, or people are just going out of their way to avoid Ramos!
Big week as Untold Tales Spider-man arrived from B&N yesterday.
Got shipping notices this morning for X-men Fatal Atractions and Ultimate Avengers from B&N.
Also just got shipping notice from TOW that Amazing Spider-man Volume 2 (Romita cover)
Merrick said he tried adjusting the dustjacket on his UXM Omnibus because it was off-center. I noticed when watching Merrick's UXM omnibus on ebay today that there were two other UXM's still sealed that looked like their dustjackets was off-center. Anyone know if that was a common problem? Mine looks fine.
Modern styling aside, the Ramos cover also isn't a very good drawing period. As I read through Dan Slott's Spidey run I find that Ramos is lacking, his work doesn't have a great sense of form or mass.
