This isn't meant as a complaint, but more of an observation that I'm sure has been pointed out by many a comic book reader.
I am in the process of reading Amazing Spider-Man #1-20 since I finally got the Marvel Masterworks stuff, and they are a really hard read. They're not boring, and I understand the difference in the times, but I have come to the conclusion that my biggest bother is the fact that Stan Lee found it necessary to point out every time Spider-Man or the villains were about to do something. It's almost as if he felt people aren't smart enough to pick up on what is happening from the art. I find it kind of insulting, but more than anything, I find it extremely annoying.
Maybe I'm alone in this, maybe I'm gonna take a lot of heat from this, but that's just how I feel. Now, I do enjoy the issues and I enjoy Lee's writing (for what it's worth), they just take way too long to finish....
