Because most have Peter Pan Syndrome or small social lives and live vicariously through their favorite superheroes and heroines. Sometimes villains.
Cyclops was right.
Ill see how it pans out but i have no interest in Spider-man comics that don't have Spider-man in ie Peter Parker under the mask.
May as well be another comic and there are plenty of good ones out there.
Perhaps a fair point - but i never was much for renumbering later issues of one title to carry on a previous titles numbering - and even if its not the last its still billed as such (playing on fan emotions again - but i cant blame them for that) and its a long way to 800 folks.
I'll be reading Scarlet Spider in the meantime...
I think it also depends on the story... If they bring it back, I'd love to see a #0 like they did with Ben... I miss Sensational and Spectacular as well...
i do miss those books
the 3 big books amazing, spectacular and sensational made for great reading - it felt like you were seeing different angles of the same world - gave it a great sense of depth for me - yeah some stories were a little rushed to fit in with major plot in other books, but the quality of characterisation was exceptional at times even with different writers - very good editing no question about it
Both books always seemed to hit it out of the park. Once they got canned, my gut told me that things would start going downhill...
i always felt it was a mistake but i understood the supposed reasons
but i do agree some of those stories were very good and enriched by the paralleled story in the other books at the time
gave it a very non linear feel i miss
J.M. DeMatteis was writing most of it... he was like the Brian Bendis or Chris Yost of his time... He couldn't really be touched as far as writing. He really got the balance between superhero adventure/character under mask/supporting cast issues/internal dialogue...
TUCO (Eli Wallach): "Whoever double-crosses me and leaves me alive--he understands nothing about Tuco!!"
I sometimes wonder about this. When Batman "died" or when he became the "Batman of Zur-En Arrh" I wasn't disturbed in the slightest. The same goes with so much else. And I liked Brand New Day. Sometimes I think it's because real good comics has the ability to let me just go with it and enjoy what happens. Maybe Big Time didn't reach up to that? Or maybe it's just the climate on some boards? That it went as far as Slott recieving threats is just sad. Something really needs to happen, because now it's just people at each others throats for whatever reason. I really hope the "oh!" Moment in SSM is a good one.
