WTH?  You did not just compare Spider-Man getting a new suit to 9/11, the Kennedy Assassination, Lennon Assassination, and Cobain's Suicide?

Talk about out of line and inappropriate.

It was a great run, Chadwith! Thanks for such consistent, high-quality contributions over the years! You made me look like a genius for hiring you.

I didn't want to single any one person out, but I guess I will anyway...  truth be told, I owe you the biggest thanks of all, Rob!   And you looked like a genius long before I started writing Comicscape.  Hiring me just cemented it.

TayDor... [sighs and shakes head]  It's okay, buddy.  Calm down.

WHAT??? Chad is leaving? Ahh man, sorry to hear this.

Always enjoyed your colums and will surelly miss the weekly articles.

It's sad to see this happens, I home Mania has something interesting to replace this gap that will be missed.

And Taydor, it's not a direct comparaison but rather a similar experience caused by a specific events. They are not the same but the effect it had on someone is the same. There is nothing inappropriate in this.

Sorry to hear you're leaving.  Hope you're moving on to bigger & better things.

I still remember that issue and the secret wars that lead Spidey to the suit.  I also remember being pissed at how bad secret wars was.  So much potential with all those sups and villians in the same place wasted.  It should have been an all out mass destruction fest but we didn't.

Good luck Chad, I've enjoyed coming by now and then to read your stuff. 

TayDor 4/27/2011 7:39:57 AM

No, I get what he was trying to evoke.  I just thought the examples he used were a bit over-the-top.  That was the only issue i had with the article.  I do remember reading secret wars and thinking the new suit was pretty cool.

Wow the problem with this country is everyone ACTS so sensitive...Wah, Wah  Booh-effin-Hoo. The pussification of the nation needs to stop. Get over it.

But to clarify ANYWAY, he wasnt comparing the events, he was comparing the way they became media phenomenons. Death of Superman can be included. They shocked people.

And to be honest Spiderman getting a new costume, or the Death of Optimus Prime, for me AT THAT AGE, WAS comparable to those.

Damn Chad why you leaving us? With you and Robbo gone the site really is losing the last aspect of actual comic books. My wednesdays are ruined now :(

CHAD good luck to you in your future endeavors and I will make sure to look  up those podcasts. Farewell my comicbook loving brother

Nice reference to George Carlin there Tevii and I totally agree with you. Let's see....1984. I was still in college and I had just discovered that comics could be bought at comic shops and not just 7-11's (this discovery of course led to my over spending every Wednesday that continues to this day). I had been reading Amazing Spider-man since 1982 so the change wasn't that much of a shock. I thought the suit was awesome, but I prefer the classic red & blue suit. I noticed the white FF suit he has now, but I have no idea what's going on in the Spider books (thanks to Joe Quesda who wiped out the history of the Spidey i grow up reading about just because HE wanted Peter to be single. I hate you JQ).
