I can't tell you how happy I was when Spidey went from multiple titles to ONE title, but 3 issues a month.
I don't understand this, what difference does it make?
As someone pointed out there used to be 5 Superman titles but they each had diamond numbers telling you the story order. The net effect was that even though you got, Superman, Action Comics, Adventures of Superman, Man of Steel and Man of Tomorrow
, the net result was that you had a weekly comic that told one large story. Batman did the something with cowl numbers across, Batman, Detective Comics, Legends of the Dark Knight
People actually complained about that set up and demaned that each comic tell a unique story.
