I'm really liking it. The art is really awesome and unique. I'm hoping we can skip out on the big fights next issue and just get some plot development. Don't get me wrong, I love a good Spider slugfest, but I'd rather find out what's actually going on now.

As far Recent spider-man writers go, only joe kelly can compare
Aside from Lee and Ditko my favorite is Roger Stern and David Michelinie
How about J. M. DeMatteis
DeMatteis is great. Spectacular Spider-Man #200 would belong on any top ten Spidey Stories list.
I am absolutely stoked. I am a little worried about villains being packed in, but Rhino isn't exactly a super deep character (barring those excellent Kelly issues during the Gauntlet), so he could just play a small part.
At the very least, the action scenes look head and shoulders above the ones in the first movie.
I really hope the next issue has a bit more plot to it. Now, don't get me wrong, I love my comics to have plenty of face punches, but it's starting to feel like a bit much.
Of the states I've been to, Alabama, and I was born and raised here. I hate it. People are completely willfully ignorant, I have to deal with casual racism and sexism from almost everyone, and I'm, sometimes, treated like a pariah because I don't share those opinions.
The worst was when I was working as a cashier for a sporting goods/outdoors store. For the 3 months I worked there, at least once a day, usually more, I had to listen to full blown racist rants about our President. Regardless of your feelings on Obama, I think we can all agree that screaming at a cashier for 10 minutes about how awful he is, with liberal use of a certain word beginning with n, is a little much.
I find it odd how we both live in Alabama, and both work at sporting goods/outdoors stores lol. Also I understand where you're coming from but I wouldn't say Alabama is a bad place to live. There are lots of intelligent people and I haven't encountered an instance of racism my entire life. It might be due to the county we live in though. Also I think the customer's Obama rant that you mentioned is due to AL being strongly Republican. It's surprisingly different for me cause my county(Montgomery) is blue :)
I mean, it's just that I live around and encounter people that, frankly, kinda suck. If I lived in a blue county as well, I probably wouldn't mind it so much. Also, I don't terribly mind being surrounded by Republicans, it's just the ones where I live are pretty obviously anti-Obama because of the color of his skin, not because of his policies or any, ya know, justifiable reason.
