ZeroCorpse: FirstNationalBastard: Nickster79: FirstNationalBastard: Give this man a new She Hulk book!

I didn't read it the first time around; still kicking myself for not picking it up in singles.

I loved Slott's work on D-List books... She Hulk, GLA... Fun comic books. What a concept.

Haven't read much of his Spider-Man, though.

Of course you haven't. That's because you were probably convinced to ignore Spider-Man after One More Day, because raging fanboys made out like it ruined the character (when actually, it saved him).

Dan Slott took over after that, and his work has been brilliant. The past few years have been awesome for Amazing Spider-Man. Slott gets Spider-Man, and he gets Peter Parker. He has really come through to make ASM a great comic again.

So yeah, the way they got to this point might have been a little awful, but what Slott has done with the material since then has been Amazing.


Wrong!

I kept up with it through issue #600, but Slott was only writer on a quarter of the issues, and to be honest, the art was generally so farking horrible that I didn't find it worthwhile to keep up with the book.

Nickster79: brap: With full knowledge that what little geek-cred I have will probably plummet further into the abyss, I have to admit, I don't get it.

DECADES OLD SPOILER ALERT

Peter Parker (Spider-Man) and Gwen Stacey were dating and truly in love. But one day the Green Goblin kidnapped her and threw her off of the George Washington Bridge. Spider-Man attempted to save her, but her neck snapped and she died.

Please leave your Geek Card at the door. You should be ashamed for making me just do that.


Hey, there's a ton of ways to be geeky without being a comic book geek.

I didn't get it either, sadly. I hate to sound like a weaboo, but American comics just do too many crossovers and other stupid gimmick shiat, requiring me to read the 3,000 other books, all while rehashing the same storylines we've seen since the 50's. I actually like a lot of the one-shot or independant stuff, like Watchmen, The Boys, Transmetropolitan (possibly my favorite comic ever), Wanted, and things like those.

I like X-men and spider men and all of the other things, just...seems like it's too much money to sink in to keep up with them.

I'm ambivalent, am I wrong? Can you convince me? I'm not trying to be a...whatever.

That decades-old effort to make comic book more realistic by killing a character via physics fails by not recognizing the elasticity of spider silk.
