    I found this site while cruising the net. Some interesting reading, I recommend the articles on The Rise and Fall of the Hobgoblin. It had some interesting behind the scenes info about the editorial direction at the time.

    Man, I knew about this site, but I never really went there.

    I read his 10 worst Spidey stories, and he is dead on with most of his critiques! The only I would have included was Sins Past.

    I particularly agree with MadGoblin's reasoning on Maximum Carnage, Pete's ID reveal to Black Cat, Hobgoblin/Ned Leeds reveal, the lead up to Gathering of the Five, and One More Day (which was dead on in its own article).

    I LOVE this site

    This guy is brilliant.

    I disagree with a few things he says, but these are by far the greatest essays about Spider-Man's world I have ever read

    Absolutely. I didn't agree with some of his viewpoints but you've got to appreciate his knowledge and research of the history of Spider-Man.
