Amazing Spider-Man #698 was probably the best issue Slott's done on Spider-Man. The way he so seamlessly meshed classic Spider-Man history with the current status quo was pretty much pitch perfect, and is what I've been looking for in a Spider-Man comic for in a long, long time. As someone who honestly doesn't even read ASM regularly purely due to Ramos' art, Elson was - to repeat myself - exactly what I've been looking for on Spider-Man. The last page (or rather, multi-page) reveal was unexpected and exciting, but I really can't see Slott just costing the book to SSM #1 on a reveal that's already happened.
It's like a non-consecutive 24-hour dance party.
