Long-time fan here (which I realize will get everyone here calling me a sycophant, once they've looked up the word to find out what it means), just wanted to say I actually enjoy the back-and-forth you have with fans both in the letter columns and places like this. I read a lot of your books; I'm on record as saying I hated "One More Day" and all that went with it, but I have to admit that I've really enjoyed a lot (not all, but a lot) of the Spider-Man stories that came after it. I don't like all your stuff (I must be the only one in the world who Just. Can't. Stand. Humberto Ramos' artwork), but by and large I've tended to notice that most of the stuff I do like at Marvel comes out of your office (Scarlet Spider, Rucka's Punisher, and the two best books Marvel puts out right now, Daredevil and Hawkeye). I'm glad you do things that piss people off, because I do think that good drama comes out of making characters people like and then torturing the hell out of them--it's certainly worked well for Marvel in the past, and comics would be boring indeed if Spider-Man was a guy who defeated all his enemies easily, was loved and adored by the public, and never had much in the way of any kind of obstacles in his path. I think it was Joss Whedon who says that he gives his audiences what they need, not what they want, and that seems about right to me (upon further reflection, that might have been Barbara Cartland. I always confuse those two).
Anyway, now that I've nauseated everyone here who hates you, I'll shut up. I am dubious about Superior Spider-Man, but I'll give it a try, and I'll happily eat my words if I end up liking it. (If I hate it, I'll just go back to reading bad "New 52" comics and mourning the cancellation of OMAC.)
