    Yeah the character interactions are nice, but his setups and overall stories are...just bad.

    JMS's run from vol. 2 #30 to #508(or whatever the issue is before Sins past) Is one of my favorite periods in Spider-Man's history. Ezekial was a great character with a clear defined and conclusive arc, a rarity in comics. Morlun was a great villain and Spidey's fight with him is epic and one of the greatest examples of Spidey's endurance. He evolved Aunt May past being a plot device and his MJ was a strong character and her relationship with Peter was well examined. JMS is in my top 5 writers with Demattis, Micheline, Lee and Stern.

    Lucky me, that's the one I ordered. :cwink: I plan to own all of his work in regards to Spider-Man, though.

    He actually tried to evolve Peter past the status quo and that was a big no-no to Marvel, which was a shame because from what I've read, he seemed to have a really good grasp on keeping Peter Parker true to himself but also having him fully grow up.

    I don't know if JMS would be great now on the character.
    Think of Chris Claremont, and how his newer X-Men series wasn't well received, although his old run is still regarded as one of the greatest runs in comic history.
    I'd like to see Roberto Agguirre-Sacasa write Spider-Man again, his run on Sensational Spider-Man is one of my favorite runs on the character.
    One big fat NAY.
    I didn't want Spidey in the MCU, and I still did not want a reboot.

    I also really love Paul Jenkins' run on Peter Parker: Spider-Man, he kept Peter's same attitude but gave him truly serious problems which led to a lot of quieter less action packed issues but still made you feel like you were reading a Spider-Man comic.

    I feel like Paul Jenkins is underappreciated and overlooked. One because he wrote the "B" titles and two because he was writing alongside the heavily publicized runs of JMS on ASM and Bendis on Ultimate. But he understood Pete's character to a tee. He had a misstep or two, but he wrote great stores.

    His writing was amazing back in the day, certainly one of my favorite runs.
    I like his run on Spectacular, especially the Final Curtain.

    He kinda looks like Grant Gusting.

    So, what do you think of the idea of driver-less cars?

    The idea raises a lot of questions, and I like none of them.

    Based on what I've seen on the road, it's as if there's already cars without drivers in them. Competent ones anyway.

    This week, I came to the conclusion that Sam Reigal (Amazing Spider-Man 1-2 from Beenox) is my least favorite voice actor for Spidey (not counting the SEGA CD voice actor or mobile games voice actor(s)), he really sucks at quips, worse than Mike Vaughn and Drake Bell.

    My favorite VA would have to be CDB or Rino Romano. Then again, I love me some adult Spider-Man so eh. :oldrazz:

    My favorites are Dan Gilvezan, Rino Roman, and Neil Patrick Harris.
    I prefer the more adult voice of Christopher Daniel Barnes to Josh Keaton's, but Josh is easily the better quipper.
