    Aloha,
    While the events within current Amazing have caused an avalanche of discussion and controversy, thought it would be nice to announce a new novel on Spidey. Titled Drowned in Thunder by Christopher L. Bennett.Takes place after MJ begins her theatrical career(Amazing #509) but before Spider-Man joins the New Avengers. It also takes place before the transformation of Spider-Man in Spectacular Spider-Man #15-20.
    Just got my copy. Look forward to reading it. Has a lot of involvement with JJJ and possible Spider Slayers.
    Spidey rules because theirs always something within continuity to read

    Hmmm looks interesting, I loved the last two books published by the same company; Down These Means Streets and The Darkest Hours. Definitly going to get this.

    Book Description:
    J. Jonah Jameson, publisher of the Daily Bugle, has denounced Spider-Man from the beginning, convincing New Yorkers to see him as a criminal and a menace. But when a robot attack on Manhattan injures Peter Parker's students and Jameson blames Spider-Man, their feud takes on a new, personal dimension.

    As the embittered webslinger faces further robot attacks, each deadlier than the last, his spider-sense warns that Jameson himself is behind them, possibly colluding with Electro, Alistaire Smythe, or another of Spider-Man's mortal foes. Convinced that his worst critic has become a mortal enemy, Spider-Man declares war on Jameson -- a war the publisher is eager to wage. But in their relentless pursuit of victory, they both risk losing everything that matters to them -- and may both fall victim to the cataclysmic secret behind the robots.

    Cool. I guess they must be selling well if they keep publishing them. I have about 20 Spider-Man novels and have enjoyed them all.

    Definitely getting this one. Thanks for the heads up, Donald. :spidey: :up:

    The Doomsday Trilogy was pretty good. Each book features a team-up between Spidey and a different Marvel character; Hulk, Iron Man, and Fantastic Four.

    Aloha,
    Just finished reading the first 100 pages. I have not read as much reference to continuity and supporting cast development in years.There can be no coincidence that this story features a Spider-Man WITH web shooters. I think this guy Bennett should be a regular Spidey writer.Technically, this novel fits into Untold Tales of Spider-Man. The author acknowledges " key elements of the plot of this novel follow up on the events of Peter Parker Spider-Man (V.2) #27-28 by Paul Jenkins and Mark Buckingham.Spider-Man's motivating mantra in Chapter 14 ( " A man may lose..) is taken almost verbatim from Amaing Spider-Man #33 by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko."
    Total pages count is 285. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this novel! :word:

    I've been reading these things since Mayhem in Manhatten (I think that was the name). I've really enjoyed the recent ones, because they take the current comics into account. I thought the Ultimate novels were very entertaining. I have an Amazon gift card that has this novel written all over it. Thanks for bringing it up, DT.

    Since I'm going to be getting this one, I'll need a few others to get the free shipping. I never read the X-Men, Wolverine or FF ones. Any recommendations?

    I have never read a Spider-Man novel and this looks pretty cool.
    I like that it fits into post ASM#509 continuity, even if it's not cannon.

    Read Adam Troy-Castro's Sinister Six trilogy. I cannot stress that enough to any Spidey fans who have not read them.

    Absolutely brilliant reading.
