Don't take stuff out of context! I meant that if Peter now had to spend his time as a huge spider, that would indeed be crap. But sure, I love Marvel Comics and Spider-Man in particular. I also think you edit some great titles. Still negative and dismissive?
I for one am looking forward to this new Spider-man.
Pull-list: Action Comics, Batman, Superior Spider-Man, The Flash, Astro City, Detective Comics, Fantastic Four, Thor: God of Thunder
Dude, Wacker, seriously coming across like a bully here. I feel like we're all gonna give superior a shot but c'mon man, we love Pete! Is it so wrong for us to have hope of an eventual return? He's the epitome of the underdog, he doesn't always get the girl or the happy ending sure, that's part of what makes him a great character. We all rely on you and slott to give us great stories and keep us guessing. So yeah, we're in this as much as you are.
That is some great art. I haven't bought a Spider-man book in several years, but this storyline has turned that around. For all the complaining, I am certain that this series is going to sell better than ASM has for many years.
Loving Peter Parker or caring about the comics isn't really the issue. That's all cool and I feel the same way.
It's the dismissiveness and making quotes up whole cloth that I find silly. It's the dramatic "things have never been worse" that I fond over the top. And I think it's okay to speak up about it. You are free to feel differently, but i don't have to live by your personal guidelines.
Hope you like the book.
No story is "crap" just by definition and as someone in a creative field, i find that kind of talk reprehensible. But I may just respect creativity and creators more than you. People who aren't creative tend to think it's easier than it really is whereas I'm impressed with anyone who creates something for public consumption.
Luckily Marvel and our creators have never listened to people like yourselves who are driven by their fears more than by their courage.
I mean, this was just cruel and frankly, you don't know me, whether I'm brave or creative or not. Not even what other comic books I enjoy and what I feel about change there and why. So leave those kind of attacks out or this. I still fail to see how you think you are entitled to.

However, people like yourselves who dismiss things too easily as "crap" are part of a contingent of "I refuse to admit I'm entertained" people I find --at best-- boring.
My suggestion has always been that if you aren't enjoying a book, then you should drop it. You refuse to do that for some reason, so that's on you.
And you did make up quotes...though I can understand why you'd want to pretend that didn't happen.
And I think you're jumping to conclusions. I'm not a "I refuse to admit I'm entertained" person. There are currently about four or five comics that are just pure enjoyment for me, one of those is one you edit. They make me forget the stuff behind the scenes and just enjoy the comic. ASM doesn't quite reach that, though much has been good. And as I've said before, if ASM makes me want to read on and if I enjoy Superior Spider-Man? I'll gladly admit I'm entertained and that I was wrong! Gladly!
