    Don't be disappointed by the weird mystical stuff in it.

    Some of the stories were very out-there, but it's the best writing the book had seen since David Michelinie left in the 90's. Slott taking over was a pretty massive disappointment even though he was writing your more traditional "fun" Spider-man stuff.

    Luckily I'm aware of the 'odd' stuff, so I'm looking forward to it. :woot:

    Are the Todd McFarlane stories worth pursuing?

    Just as a note: I'm getting into USM again (started with Vol 1), gonna be ordering the Spidey series when they release (have been reading the single issues thus far), and now getting into the JMS stuff. Aside from those, I currently own and cherish Spider-Man: Blue and look to be picking up the likes of Death of Jean DeWolff and KLH so I'm always on the look out for expanding Spider-Man.

    It depends; the stuff he did as a writer/artist on the simply titled "Spider-man" series is mostly forgettable but worth checking out as it's one of the highest selling Spider-man books of all time. But the stuff he did with David Michelinie on ASM is still to this day my favorite run the character has ever had. I'm probably biased because those were some of the first Spider-man books I ever read, but it's Peter and Mary Jane as newlyweds and there's a lot of great stories there worth checking out. I still own all of them, they're at my parents house. Below is a link to imgur where you can see my comic book collection:

    Nice, those are all good reads (except for Spidey, haven't read it and can't speak to it).

    Michelinie 90s is the beeeeest. Lifetheft, Invasion of the Spider Slayers, and Return of the Sinister Six are some of my fav reads.

    All great stories, particularly Return of the Sinister Six. I believe that was Erik Larsen, one of my favorite Spider-man artists, who did that book.

    Alrighty, I'll definitely consider 'em then. Have a lot of general Spidey stuff on my Amazon wishlist anyways. :oldrazz:

    Wallopin' Websnappers is all I can say to that. That's friggin' incredible.

    One nitpick I found common about the Michilinie run is how he wrote MJ mostly as a sex doll for Peter, which rings true when I read it sometimes, but he still made some good things with her.
    J.M.DeMatteis on the other hand, had an all around great handle on Mary Jane.

    Yep, he also wrote and drew the Revenge of the Sinister Six for the adjectiveless title.

    Return of the S6 introduced a weird new power to Spidey, resisting Heroin addiction.

    Personally I'd say you can skip these two. Spider-Island in particular is pretty terrible. I actually stopped reading ASM altogether after that.

    Sins Past will disappoint, that is guaranteed.
    These are great. Does the Stern collection include his run on Spectacular? It has various artists, but I prefer that run over his amazing one.
    Stupid fun, it passes.

    Try the Paul Jenkins collection.
    Not a Lizard's Tale, which I enjoy, but looking at Curt Connors being an ass who was always in control of The Lizard is sappy.

    Yeah, I'm aware of that one. Yikes. :dry:

    How would you guys feel if they rebooted again in say, 2028 and made a straight-adaption of the 60s comics called "Amazing Fantasy: Spider-Man" or just "Amazing Fantasy" Everything is whimsical like those comics and it's a period-piece set in 1962.

    Yay or Nay?

    I would like it to be a period piece, Peter living in the 60s but with the type of writing that you would get on Spidey or Ultimate, that would be amazing!

    I just want a proper reboot of the main title with someone else at the helm instead of Slott.

    Have no interest at all in Tony Stark 2.0.

    It feels like Slott has gotten disinterested ever since the end of Superior and then even more after Spider-Verse and the beggining of ANAD.

    What bothers me is the fact that ANAD is not ANAD for Spider-Man -- it's a continuation which goes against what they were trying to establish. Aside from that, his joy over Doc Ock is getting old quickly.

    I just want a reboot of it all.

    No more OMD nonsense, no more Sins Past, no more anything. Just a clean slate that not only serves as a starting point for new readers but a chance to do things differently.

    Yeah, but Marvel is weird with that because they claim it's classic Peter just in his younger days when it's clearly not. :oldrazz:

    That said, I'm loving the series. :funny:

    I just want Brian Michael Bendis to start writing the 616 Spider-Man, something about Slott's writing has irked me recently, like, characters are a little too mean spirited towards each other.

    If I had it my way, BMB and JMS would write a rebooted Amazing Spider-Man series in a Joe Quaesda-less Marvel.

    JMS is a little too hit and miss for my tastes.
