    When the Clone Saga ended and there was no resolution to the baby May situation in sight, the Spider-Girl book started. A sort of "what if they found Baby May?". In some ways, this was the proper continuation of what had been going on during the 90s.

    And now with the new status quo of Spider-Man, completely re-writting everything right back to when Harry died, and to even before that, telling us that NO ONE knows who Spidey is... all story progression for the last couple of decades has been stopped dead.

    Now more than ever, the Spider-Girl comcs seem like the "true" continuation of the Spider-Man story.

    I agree with ya Kaine. With whats going down in the amazing Smino right now, the alternate universe Spider-man seems more legit than this one.

    Well, based on a Joe Q interview, if sales of Amazing drop and Spider-Girl goes up, it might just send a message.

    I've really been itching at getting this series for a while and I guess now with all the crap going on it would be the best time. I've heard some really good things about it. If I'm disappointed with it, I will just blame you guys lol.

    This is my absolute favorite comic ever. The one comic that I can't wait to tear into every month. The one comic that if I could only afford one comic a month it would be this one.

    I love you Spider-Girl.:woot:

    I've never had any interest in following the antics of Spider-Girl... give me Spider-MAN any day. (Besides, there's just something ewwy about seeing the "suit" with a pair of breasts).

    BUT... things have changed.

    Now SG may be the only book where Peter hasn't acted like a freaking moron (starting with the unmasking) and he and MJ haven't sold out to Satan (so to speak.)

    I'm not sure I can buy ANYTHING Marvel, but if this could send a message, I might consider it.

    If the number fall for ASM... as I sincerely hope they do... then I will do my part to increase numbers for the only title where Peter and MJ are still the family they should be.

    Spider-Girl has been a great read since day one... you should really hop on board.

    Have any of you guys read Spider-Man: The Final Adventure? I think you would all really enjoy it; it's the perfect end for the Peter Parker character.

    You can download it off Donald Thomas' site.

    Spider-Girl is the best Spider-book out there, right now. Amazing Spider-Man hasn't been that good or interesting in years...and that doesn't look like it's changing soon.

    Was that the one that took place during the Clone Saga? I read it quite a while ago. Cant remember what I thought of it.

    The stories in Spider-girl are very reminsicent of the Spider-Man stories of the '80s, Peter's retired (for the most part) from the hero business after getting his leg blown off in his final battle against the Goblin. Pete knows his daughter is Spider-girl and is torn between being protective of his little girl, but also knowing that with her great power comes great responsiblity. It also embraces history and continuity instead constantly retconning it, Aunt May died in ASM #400, the clone saga is referenced, no Gwen/Norman kids, Kaine is around alot, things like that. Don't let the "Girl" part keep you away it's a great book.

    Yes, it continues off from "The Greatest Responsibility" story from the Clone Saga, where Peter realized he couldn't father a child and play superhero at the same time and decided to pass the Spider-Man duties to Ben Reilly.

    Well said.

    There haven't been any "gimmicky" events, no "let's shake up the status quo" storylines, just the natural progression of a charactercoming of age. Also, you have to love that Peter and MJ are together and raising a family on SOME universe.

    What? No it's not. And you should have been reading Spider-Girl previous to One More Day. It's always been a fantastic book with old school Spider-Man storytelling.

    Man...are the boards going to be like this for the next year now? A bunch of nerds who are going to act like Joe Quesada pissed in their cornflakes? :huh:

    Because people need to start getting over it. Fast. Guess what? It's not going to change back and there isn't going to be "another" retcon. These are the Spider-Man stories that you're going to be getting. So, either go read Spider-Girl and other alternatives...because Marvel has a butt load of them. And DC has a lot of them too. Or continue complaining. Continue coming to these boards and disliking a man, Joe Quesada, who gives two CRAPS about you...your opinions...or whether or not you are going to buy Spider-Man. Because I think that if Joe Quesada cared about ANY of you he wouldn't have done One More Day. In fact, he wouldn't have made a lot of the decisions he made in the past few years.

    Because this is what is funny to me. Most of the people who are going to "drop" Spider-Man are going to just buy another Marvel book in it's place, I'm sure. And how does that "hurt" Joe Quesada? How does that "hurt" Marvel? That doesn't. Either way you look at it Joe Quesada wins. You all lose. And you can either move on and read the things that DON'T make you angry, disassociated people...or you can continue to let a fat guy who gets paid to tell people what to write in comic books get to you and make you angry for ABSOLUTELY NO GOOD REASON.

    Because me...I liked Brand New Day. I love Dan Slott on the Amazing Spider-Man. Joe Quesada gave me what I wanted. I'll be enjoying the new era of Spider-Man and his new adventures...and the continuing saga. The rest of you...I feel sorry for you.

    I've read a few of your recent posts now, and you're really coming across as very belittiling. I don't like your attitude at all. You're quite condescending.

    I'm a 23 year old man. I'm sure most of the guys here are all adults. Don't talk to us like kids. You could follow your own advice. If you don't like the complaints, get out of the threads.

    I've been buying Spider-Girl on and off for a few years and I'm aware of how good it can be. I'm going to resolve to buy it monthly from now on, and hope that enough people cancel Amazing Spidey to send a message. I think a sales increase in Spider-Girl would send a definate message.

    It's not about "winning" or "losing" to Joe Q.

    It's about 2 things.

    1: Hoping that the message gets across to him that his agenda has lost him more fans than its gained.

    2: If he doesn't get the message, at least I won't be buying a book that ****s all over the last 2 decades of stories and progression.

    100 steps backwards is not the way to write a story.
