I know a lot of people won't agree with me but superior is one heck of a ride and I'm loving itt.

seconded

I love how people hate on Slott so much, it's rather sad really. I absolutely love the book, and am glad to have some new potential story avenues. Slott is a good sport when it comes to the hate he gets, but really people should stop being so upset about this, Peter will be back eventually and then we can all go back to having the same old stories told over and over. In the meantime let us fans of the book enjoy the ride.

I think that's the clown's eye not Hawkeye's on the cover.

I know its not the book you are looking for but if you want a great starting point for spider-man I'd recommend ultimate it has the best writing out of any spider-man comic.

seconded. Especially if you liked the new movie, it's got the same sort of tone.

@fadetoblackbolt: well as we saw in the latest issue spOck does have some decency in him as a person, and could really change and become a good person. I think this would be a really interesting story to tell, rather than getting the same "Peter has to balance family and being Spider-Man!" stories we've been getting for the last 50 years.

So it's fine that Ock just destroyed Parker because there's a chance he'll be a good person?

Let's look at the ideals behind Superior;

"Kill someone. Steal their identity, and rape their memories, but it's OK if there's a possibility that you'll be a nice guy one day."

It's an affront to everything that superhero comics are about, and to do it to Spider-Man, arguably the greatest comic book character ever, is a disgrace and a testament solely to Slott's ego and total lack of talent.

Slott has a lack of talent? He's written some truly tremendous Spider-Man stories! I find it a disgrace and a testament to comic fanboys' egos that they just through out random opinions as if they're facts. Slott may be a polarizing writer, and his works are not for everyone, but he is certainly not talentless.

Actually, he is talentless. He hasn't written a single good Spider-Man story. And I never stop finding it amusing just how incredibly hypocritical statements such as these; "

a testament to comic fanboys' egos that they just through out random opinions as if they're facts"

are.

I'm not a fanboy. I'm a fan and I'm a writer, and I'm offended on both fronts by what Slott has done. Which is to say, write generic crap that could be written by anyone and that benefits no one but himself and the cretins reading his nonsense.

Spider-Island was pretty great, as was "I killed tomorrow". His Big Time run is what got me back into Spider-Man, with fun stories, a cool supporting cast and put Peter in a new, interesting position, as opposed to him still working for the daily bugle.

Also, how is doing a storyline that has never been done in a spidey book before, "generic crap"; what would you like to see be done in a Spider-Man book?

Saw the first movie in as a kid in the cinema (I still remember that day very clearly), after checking out the X-men films and really getting into Marvel movies my Dad bought me a copy of "Astonishing Spider-Man #140 (a UK reprint containing the first two parts of Mark Millar's Venomous). From there I was hooked.

You should pick up the "Amazing Spider-Man: Big Time" Collection from Dan Slott, it's not too highly priced for the content you get, and from there you can go on to read stories such a Spider Island, and the rest of Slott's brilliant run. (Yes I'm including Superior Spider-Man, as I actually read the book rather than mindlessly hate it like most of the comic book community)

Getting rid of ghost Peter would be the best thing for this book, I've really been enjoying spOck's story, but feel he's been shafted in the character progression area all so we can get some useless whiny narration from Peter/
