    Sigh. Morons. Marvel has their tastebuds in their ass.

    Sorry, Dan. DC could always use more amazing writers :)

    Marvel needs Dan Slott like a fat kid loves cake. Stop whooing him to the other side.

    Son of a ****ing *****. Great, so that's one less QUALITY book from Marvel. Now we get more JMS an' BMB spooge soaked pages of refried uninspired crap.

    DC gave Gotham Central 40 issues, Manhunter 25 issues, and Plastic Man 20 issues... they would've held on to a low-selling Slott title longer. However, I wonder if Slott's intricate knowledge of continuity extends to the DCU.

    Yes it is. And I'll pick JMS over Slott anyday.

    Not Bendis though. :)

    It wouldn't make a difference,.. we have previous examples of how Marvel is messed up in the head this way.

    I remember Panther, Swamp Thing, Howard, West Coast, Force Works, SpiderWoman, Wonderman (yuck), Heroes for Hire, Cage, all good concepts cut or canceled when in most cases their numbers were higher than editor fav's like Ironman or Thor,....

    The only exception I'm aware of was Spidergirl.

    Yeah, but how long before they discover they were chosen by mystical cosmic gods to become th' FF and get all new powers like the ability to eat faces from 20 yards?

    This is f'in horrible. Hopefully we'll see Lockjaw in FF issues as a reminder of this great, short lived book.




    Has Dan ever written Spidey before? I'm curious as to how he'd do Peter's humor.

    He did a Spider-Man/Human Torch miniseries last year, and it was great

    Spidey also appeared in the last issue of thing, and awhile back in She-Hulk

    I always meant to pick up the Spidey/HT mini. I hesitated cuz I figured too many funny guys would spoil the broth, ya know. Imagine a book with Spidey, Iceman, Deadpool, and Torch. Overkill.

    I loved his Spidey in the last Thing issue.

    and marvel gave spidergirl, captain marvel and black panther a lot more than that.

    I don't think it's intrinsically true that dc would hold on longer.

    I would agree with that statement up until I read Deadly Genesis. Then...not so much.

    Hmmm 1 out of 3 titles. That means 2/3 of his titles are good, which equals 66%.:o
