First and foremost, I must say that I was never a Spider-Man reader. But after picking up an issue of the current run of Superior Spider-Man I got hooked, and was curious to visit some of writer's Dan Slott's early Spidey Stories. From what I've read, "Big Time" is one of writer's Dan Slott's earlier works of Spider-man where he had more creative control. I can say that he truly evolved as a writer from this title to the current run Superior Spider-Man, but it's still a great read! I sure hope that the Oakville Public Library order more of this work. They are really great! :) Thanks!

I don't know that Quesada had such an issue with marriages (although you probably said that tongue in cheek), but I think the real reason so many things were rebooted was that they wanted to draw back in the teenage demo again, which JM Stracynski's run shunned with sophisticated, more adult storytelling.....

On the one hand, Slott's a good writer who's been making the most of his work on Amazing Spider-Man, despite being hobbled with the direction forced on it by Joe Quesada, who inexplicably had a lot rebooted because he's got issues with marriages. Slott is a creative talent, understands characterization, and does a good job managing these characters. On the other hand, and this is where this collection loses points with me... it completely destroys the credibility of someone who'd once been a terrific character by turning him into a psychopath and ultimately into the Hobgoblin. And the art, as is always the case with Humberto Ramos, is just awful. Why doesn't this man have the slightest idea about proper scale or human anatomy? And why does Marvel keep letting this man draw?
