Big old F.
A (Amazing)- One of the best Spider-Man eras ever.
B (Good)- A good time to be a Spider-Man fan, but not one of the best.
C (Decent)- An average period of the Spider-Man comics.
F (F***ed up)- One of the worst Spider-Man eras ever.
N/A- I have no interest in reading this era of the Spider-Man comics..
Really enjoyed a lot of it, but the problem for me is that ending of arcs/stories felt very rushed (most notably with the Hobgoblin War arc). I remember reading the first issue of Big Time and thinking "Wow! There is a lot of comic there!" and sometimes the sheer amount of things happening in an issue is great, but sometimes it just felt like a steam-train at a fast pace with little space for quieter, reflective moments like you'd get during the JMS run.
Overall, enjoyable and fun, but maybe not the Spider-Man stories I'll be re-reading over and over again. Must say that #698 was EXCELLENT though.
I just re-read the first two arcs of Slott's run and I'm enjoying it. I think it is going to get bogged down with Spider-Island soon though. Peter joining the FF was a fun read.
I'd love to see Slott write the FF. He seems to have a good hold on the family dynamic and the fun it brings. I almost feel like it would have been great to see him do both Spider-Man and FF at the same time. I bet they would have been good reads.
Whenever Peter comes back I think Slott needs to settle the title down a bit and just tell some street level stories. Stop with all the over the top events and world ending events.
"Honestly, I'd recommend that you just not read stuff."
