I gave up on Spidey some time after Joe Quesadillia ruined the character. I piced up this issue and flipped through it and saw 2 things that promptly made me return it to the shelf: Spider-Man carrying a baby & the art. Now, the art may do it for some, that's fine. Different tastes and all that. But I can't stand this style on Spider-Man. As for the story, it's all meaningless. If you are going to wipe 20 years of stories into the dust bin, why should I care about the character now? I KNOW he'll never get the girl, so there's no point in him even dating. He'll continue to lie to Aunt May, so that relationship is static.

Ah well, I'll stop griping now.

I agree with a lot of what you have to say Spiderhero.

I personally prefer the Mcfarlandesque type art with Spidey to the artwork in this issue.  Spiderman has become a sort of stagnant character.  Like you said.  He will always have problems dating and will never get the girl no matter who it should be MJ but that is another story.  He will apparantly never do the right thing and second guess himself.  At least in this issue there was a little witty banter from Spidey.  I am just at the point where I cannot read it anymore.  I really do not know why I do.  Is it character loyalty?  I can honestly say I am not enjoying it anywhere near as I am enjoying a lot of other books out there.   Like X-factor was ridiculously good this week.  A lot of fun and very entertaining this month.  I just wish someone could take the reigns of this title and have some fun with it.  They also need to stop with the 2-3 books a month.  Go back to once a month and maybe it will increase the quality a bit.  It's not like there are not a ton of Spidey books out there already.

True go back to the way it was .No more 3 #s a month with so-so stories just have 1# a month with good storiesand why go back after May found out who he was ? I thought that was a good way to move the book on and make it grow.
