I'll play it by ear Depending on how Superior Spider-man is
1st of all.. Who brought up OMD.. If anyone was gonna drop asm because of OMD they wouldnt wait for #700.
2nd..its embarassing to even post here when people are talking about whether Peter Parker had sex with a girl. Sex is a normal part of the private life of any adult in a romantic relationship. It's not in any way a part of being a superhero. The Amazing Spider-Man is a comic about the things in Peter's life that have to do with being a super hero. You dont need Dan Slott to tell you Whether or not Peter is taking regular bathroom breaks, do you? Are you worried that he hasnt gone sonce he was 15?
Question: Has it been made clear that we'll know who the new Spidey will be by the conclusion of #700? Or will it still be a mystery?
If by definition we're going that the opinion of 'whiney internet posters' doesn't matter because they're just a 'vocal minority', I can just as easily say that of the Letter Page in the Comic. I'm delighted that they're writing in and saying that they're loving the book but I'm sure only a tiny number of people actually bother to, just as a (probably slightly larger) number post their opinions online, positive or negative. There's probably a good number of people who don't do either, each with their own take on matters.
My official jumping on point for getting back into the comics was #556. I read some back in my early teens, but never had the money to continue to read. Got back into it around the time Iron Man came out. Spidey was always my favorite so I started to read him some more. I have loved the stories so far. Went and read some back issues. Best story arc I've ever read was Back in Black. That was a dark and vengeful Spider-Man. That fight with Kingpin was the best. I really hope that Aunt May is killed by Doc Ock and that gives Peter a sense of vengeance similar to Batman when he lost his parents.
Guys, help me out here. I'm confused about something.
IF you're one of the guys here who SAYS you're not reading the book...
and you ALSO say that #700 is going to be your "jumping off point"...
What does THAT mean?
Does it mean that you're going to jump off and no longer come to message boards and complain about a book that you say you're NOT reading? ;-)
