    Either that or they're writing the stories more realistic. And I've noticed a lot of the stuff you criticize you don't even read or you take things out of context.
    Support titles that need supporting. Quit buying, reading and complaining about comics you don't enjoy.

    I doubt that is gonna happen.

    If nihilism didn't take some delight in destruction one might suspect nihilists were an unnaturally morbid sort.

I believe that marvel writers are more concerned with how a story will look in history than they are in telling a good story. They'll do both if they can but they'll choose the former before the later if they have to.
    How would you know if you don't read the books? What was the last issue of Amazing Spider-Man you read?

    Yes you do, but your being purposefully dim at this point. We stand behind our product more than you stand behind nutty things you write on the internet. We sell books to comic stores, not individual readers.

    Any comic you buy you risk not liking. Again, ask your store for your money back. Or just don't buy it.

    Of course Spidey has a built in audience. Most popular things do. When we do something to Spidey people notice Remember how the Death of Ultimate Spider-MAn was the previous "end of all things good and holy and I'm quitting Marvel forever" on comic books message boards? And that was just ULTIMATE Spidey,

    But it also means you have a lot of readers who care deeply and expect to be engaged and entertained. That's our job and it ain't easy. It does seem we tapped into something with this story though.

    With so many options today for people's time and money, getting them wrapped up in your story in anyway you can is paramount. All these angry people are thinking about Spidey constantly right now and reading the book if only to drive themselves nuts. So the Dan, Humberto, Ryan and the whole team team is doing its job...and doing it well.

    That's a spoiler for the last issue of Superior Spidey 156 years from now.

    Some shops are giving the issue out today so could you possibly make a spoiler thread?

    You make a good point. You sell to comic book stores, not to individuals. So if I want Cardiac to have a title, I need to start talking to comic book stores across the country about petitioning Marvel for it to happen.

    I was so blind, I never knew this to be the case. All along I thought my campaign was making a dent. I must renew my efforts. Cardiac will be in a book in 2013.
    Check out the O.A.W. Report at www.majinoaw.blogspot.com. You want to see why I say the things I do or understand what's in my head... this is the place to go.

    Thanks, Steve!

    I'm trying to get her and her younger brother hooked on comics and Spider-man. Plus, for them going into my entertainment room, which is loaded full of Spider-man stuff since the 1980s, it's like going into a Toys R Us that never sold any Spider-man toys.

    It's not the official release date, so I don't think that would set a good precedent. It essentially rewards readers who figured out a way to cheat the system.

    kingofsting, while I'm sure Slott and Wacker appreciate your comments, we're not allowing discussion of Amazing Spider-Man #700 spoilers or poster's impressions of it until Next week.

    haven't read ASM regularly since OMD (still not happy with that outcome, but que sera, sera). I CANT WAIT to go to my LCS next week and happily hand over my money to have the privilege of owning a physical copy of this landmark issue. I want to shake dan slott, steve wacker and axel alonso's hands for the story that they have produced thus far. I have found slott to be very hit or miss during the big time era, and I did not really enjoy Ends of the Earth, but reading 698-699 inspired me to pick up the premiere hardcovers for Died in Your Arms, Big Time (which ive already got in tpb, along with Matters of Life and Death), and Danger zone, to go along with my Spider Island HC.

    I think it's hilarious that fanboys are crappin their diapers over what's going on in the book, and what they think is going to go on in the Superior era based on a hazy mix of truth, rumors, conjecture, and fear. I say Make Mine Marvel, NOW! and Forever
