    Reminds me of the spidey comics I read as a kid, where he was this hyperactive superhero who twisted and turned his way through the panels, never relying on just strength.
    I like it.

    Looks very vibrant and exciting to me. I wouldn't mind scimming one of these.

    It would be nice to have Spidey stories that actually remembered the fundamentals.

    I'm really digging the art. It's the most dynamic I've seen in a while, though I didn't think Deodato's Spidey was too shabby myself.

    That IS refreshing compared to the current stories where Spider-man jobs to everyone and goes through a life shattering event every month.

    Are these in-continuity with the Marvel U.?

    That's not really an endorsement. He's the hackest writer in superhero comics, ever. Maybe the hackest writer in published fiction ever.

    Spidey actually looks like he's kicking too much ass in those panels...

    spidey's always kicking too much ass.

    The eternal underdog who has all these incredible powers but still depends on his peter parker intellect is pretty much gone in comics. He's been using brute force to get his way through too many situations and that's one of the reasons why this aspect has filtered over into the films.

    spidey just punches his way through all obstacles, it's very crude...

    If Marvel was publishing them here (they are, it's called Marvel Adventures), no-one would buy them.

    Stan Lee was a terrible writer. But none of us would be here in a Spider-Man forum if it weren't for a great creative period in his life in the early sixties.

    I'd have included the entirety of Stan's FF run with Kirby, but there's this limit to the number of images a post can have, or some ****. :o

    Either way, it's futile. Aristotle will just come back with some lame argument about how Jack kirby was the real writer and all that jazz.

    I should amend that a bit. Terrible is a (terrible) exaggeration. I read most of his stuff in those little digests they made 20 or 30 years ago, and I was captivated by them. But I was 10. Reading them as an adult, I can see it warts and all. His dialogue is so straightforward, and thought balloons would fill in all the blanks for you. He was writing the way comics were written then, and they've grown up since. Maybe it's like trying to compare athletes of different eras, who grew up with different training techniques, resources, etc. Stan (and company) did the job with the tools and standards of his time. And no-one has done it comparably since.

    I really don't want to make a case against Stan the Man, because he truly is a childhood idol of mine, and the examples Darth gave were great ones. Truthfully, the breadwinner of Marvel currently (BMB), has much bigger flaws in his writing than Stan ever did. (Whenever he really dives into the "realistic dialogue" crap, I just want to scream, "Oh, the Humanity!")

    Nice change from "Stan Lee is a terrible writer" to "Stan Lee was awesome, but like most things from the 60's it's a little dated today."
