    I love when he gives his opinion on where we are at with Marvel time:

    "It's about 12-13 years ago. That's the current measure of Marvel sliding time; everything happened 12-13 years ago. As the Marvel Universe has grown older, there have been many years where that scale was five years, or seven years, or nine years. Now we're up to 12-13. Or else, how do you explain Julie Power growing up? Or Franklin Richards getting a little older, and Valeria Richards being born? There are markers in the Marvel Universe, and we're up to 12-13 years ago."

    This makes Peter at least 27 years old which I'm totally ok with.
    Waiting for DC to create their own comic streaming service...

    Kurt Busiek and David Lapham already covered that territory.

    "17-page comic of the sixties"? Early sixties comics were 23-24 pages long.

    This sounds like the second coming of "Spider-Man/Human Torch", which I still feel is Slott's masterpiece.

    Ramón and I look at this as, if we do this right, this becomes a perennial. This becomes a thing you can always go back and read, this very timeless story that gets to the core of Peter Parker and Spider-Man.

    I will be excited for this until something comes out that tells me I shouldn't be

    That'd make most of the O5 X-Men over thirty as well. I'm cool with that.

    Iceman always feels like a kid to me, but Cykes and Beast have gotta be 30+ at this point

    Pretty sure the O5 was around Spideys age when they started

    Another retelling?
    Even with Dan Slott on board, it is still one major let down!

    Not a retelling, an interweaving. And this kind of thing so plays to Dan's strengths! So I look for him to knock it out of the park.

    Can't wait! Are these issues going to be a part of the original volume of ASM or a part of the new one?

    Okay. Now somebody tell me, how old is Captain America exactly? It got super complicated after his time in Dimension Z, which might or might not be a decade.

    Wish there was more art. The one of his Spidey is......Amazing? Can't wait for this! While I've loved Spock, I miss Pete.

    Hah, could have had me fooled. Peter still acts like he's 16.
