Especially with the current story, "Happy Birthday!". It features a bevy of guest stars including: the FF, Cyclops, Thor, Doctor Strange, the Dread Dormammu and the Mindless Ones (finally the Mindless Ones are getting some respect ). John JR. is also doing some great art work (the best of his career, IMO) and I'm really looking forward to # 500 with the son and father teaming up on the art chores. I also really like Ezekiel. He's a great character. I really think this is the best run on the title since the Stan Lee/Steve Ditko/John Romita days.

    Keep up the good work, Joe.

    MATTD,

    Your recommendation has sold me.

    THE MINDLESS ONESÖ had sold me, all by themselves!

    I just bought the newest issue of Spiderman here (Norway). I very rarely buy comics anymore, and I hadn't bought a Spiderman issue for more than 10 years. The second I saw that JMS had written the stories though, I couldn't wait to buy it. Inside the magazine, it says that the story was made in April of 2003 though, so most of you guys have probably read it already. It's a relatively long story, including a new bad guy called Digger. There are two stories (two out of two) in this comic about it, and the end of the story wil be in next months comic.

    I have really enjoyed all of JMS' comics. I previously quit reading comics when I was a teenager [35 years ago].

    Now I have been following several series and can't get enough of them. Besides ASM, I buy anything written by Fiona Avery and I am now following '1602' by Neil Giaman. Also, Superman Birthright.

    One thing that I have found, is that as I read JMS comics, I "hear" the dialogue in the voices from Bab5 & Jeremiah.

    JMS is who got me back into reading Spidey after a 15 year absence. I like his take on the character and on the cast. He seems to be the first writing in a long time to push the concept of 'responsibility' in all aspects of webhead's life.

    The change to Aunt May has been a good one. By making a slight change (May's reality vs. Peter's perception of her), Joe has given the gal some real life. In some ways, it reminds me of what they did to The Batman's Leslie Thompkins. While I loved the character in the original Crime Alley tale (with it's amazing and iconic Dick Giordano art), the more capable and feisty version is much more palatable. Just like May Parker!

    Besides, ya gotta love the whole gynecalogical(sp) joke...

    Yeah, I'm looking forward to the Doc Strange mini too. Hopefully it will be out soon. It would be cool if John JR. does the art, but that's doubtful considering his schedule.

    Isn't he great. He's just a cool, interesting character. I can't wait to see what his future holds. I'd love it if JMS did like a mini-series just starring Ezekial. That would be great.

    Yes, the Morlun arc was incredible. I loved JRJR fight scenes. On the topic of the Spidey origin question, I read somewhere that it may be dealt with in # 500 (or maybe the arc following "Happy Birthday!").

    In addition to his Amazing Spiderman work, I'm also looking forward to his creator owned Image series, The Grey Area. It sounds real interesting and John is going to be co-writing it and doing the art.

    I currently pick up Amazing and Spectacular. I read Ultimate Spidey in trades. Spectacular was off to a slow start, but it seems to be getting better.

    Only 9 days away from Amazing 500. I can't wait.
