Amazing spiderman

Post by TheMyth on Tue Mar 25, 2008 5:58 pm

anyone else still reading. I'm having a real hard time dropping this, each three issue arc so far i have enjoyed (the last one with FREAK) was a little shaky, got close to dropping, then the next team was announced with the wolvie appearance, and damn I'm still on board.

Yeah I'm still reading it. It's the only Spidey title left and, since I only read Ultimate Spider-Man via trades, I'll continue reading until something terrible happens, i.e. they stuff up the artist/writer teams.

I have a feeling somewhere down the line Marvel will introduce another Spidey title.

I'm dropping ASM after I pick up the trade for One More Day. I've been reading the Brand New Day ASM off the racks at the comic store since it started and I don't like the changes.

It held enough interest to flip through it each week to see how the changes would stick but I miss the gravitas of JMS' Peter Parker and the Freak arc has finally lost me.

It's a shame as this was my longest continuous run on a single issue since I started reading comics.

I'm too OCD to stop reading. I don't mind the BND stuff, but it feels like I'm reading Spidey from the 60's or 70's. It doesn't feel like the cool updated Spider-Man I grew fond of...and I even think that a JRJR drawn arc would feel really out of place.

I have now stopped getting this but I will get ehe trades, much more economical. Last months run I really enjoyed i.e the Myan God Blizzard thing. It nearly kept me buying but the trades will be cheaper in the long run.

I'm still unsure over this. The book isn't bad per se, it's just, well, Parker grew out of the goofiness. He feels like a teenager again for no decent reason.

can't justify the money spent on a weekly book, lost interest a while ago, here that it's good every now and then, but the weekly thing keeps me away

Have they started releasing the TPB' of these? I dropped this after the Myan god thing due to cost so i hope the TPB have now caught up to where I left off.

Gotta go to the airport for a conference on the gold coast now, see ya!

I know this thread is old, but I was looking to add a new Spidey title to my pull list.

I'm guessing this may be a bad idea.

Apparently from all reports it's quite good.

I'm slowly moving completely to trades so i haven't read in quite a while though.

I cannot get past the de-evolution of the character, so the One More Day TPB was where I pulled the plug.

Occasionally flick through at the racks - the December Mark Waid issue read well.

I'm slowly going through 3 months worth of back issues and I must admit that it's improved a touch after the One More Day/Brand New Day stuff.

The "Freak" arc was a visit to snoozeville for me but it was great to see John Romita Jr back on board for the "New Ways to Die" arc.

The creative teams change between story arcs so you may want to grab it as a TPB if you prefer a settled team/style.

You reading PWJ RatFink?

Is it the kind a title I can just start from next issue, or do I need to know back stories?

BoloMusashi wrote:You reading PWJ RatFink?

Begrudgingly, yes. First few issues were the best punisher reads I've had in a long while, then it just went to shit. The art and especially the Jigsaw arc were just apalling. Thank god it died in the arse.

I have just received my copy of "Punisher" which is it's replacement and with Remender and Opena on board, it already looks a million times better. His first confrontation is with The Sentry!! and Norman Osbourne!

Also, the new "Punisher - War Zone" 6 parter from Ennis & Dillon is fantastic!!. I highly recommend any Punisher fans to hunt this down (Or buy the TPB when it's out!)

IMO, yes.

Yeah was not a fan of Howard Chaykin's artwork on that arc - I think I didn't even bother reading issues in that run after seeing the first part. Who has drawing duties now as I'm 3 months behind.

I just received #26 and a guy called Andy MacDonald is on pencils, before that, Chaykin was still scribbling shite. I wouldn't even bother looking for back ish's Bolo, just start from "The Punisher" # 1. It looks great!

Sorry I meant to say yes - trying to type and talk to someone else at the same time can be a problem at times. ASM story arcs tend to consist of 4-6 issues per arc, so basically jump on when the next arc starts.

Thread Hijacked!!!! As a Punisher completist I stayed onboard through the terrible Chaykin run......quite enjoyed the recent story in Punisher....but seemed a little rushed in the end with Jigsaw inserted as the bad guy at the end....heard the guy at local comic shop recommending Amazing to a young kid.....after collecting 50 odd issues I just can't get back into it now....saddly
