Re: Spider-man books

Fair enough. I thought the story worked extremely well and was one of his better written works. Both the Bruce Wayne and Clark Kent "personal' stories I thought were well handled as well. Bruce cleaning up Wayne Enterprises and trying to improve his reputation while Clark discovering about himself still.

No, it wasn't bad, it's just that there were a few moments of Did Not Do the Research that stood out.

Re: Spider-man books

Is it poor etiquette to pick HP a thread I started 8 months ago?

Sad to hear they aren't currently publishing Batman/Spiderman novels. I enjoy them immensely. I don't really like comics although I enjoy comic book movies and shows. Guess I'll have to try again at the comics. I tend to read them like novels, reading a while book in 15 minutes. I gather you're supposed to take time and appreciate the art work

Re: Spider-man books

But, hey, if it gives me a chance to plug my upcoming MAN OF STEEL novelization . . . go for it!

Oh, I should also mention THE AVENGER: THE ROARING HEART OF THE CRUCIBLE, an anthology coming out this spring featuring new stories about the classic pulp hero created by "Kenneth Robeson."

Just to be clear, we're not talking about Tony and Steve and Bruce here, or even Steed and Emma. We're talking about Richard Henry Benson, The Avenger.

(And, yes, I have a story in the anthology.)

I can read a comic from the 2000's in just a few minutes. It's the stuff from the 60's that takes a while to read because they spelled out every little detail for you.

Also because comics today have become so decompressed. It used to be that comics routinely had up to 9 panels per page, often quite crowded with speech balloons and captions. These days it's more typical to have 2-4 panels per page and relatively little text. Back then you could have 2-3 complete stories crammed into one issue, now it typically takes 4-6 issues to tell one story because comics are written with the trade paperback compilations in mind.

I'm VERY excited to hear this. Who's publishing this? Will your story feature any of the Justice, Inc. gang?

It's not. Mutant Enemy never approved any outlines, so the line never happened.

The publisher is Moonstone, who has already published a couple of AVENGER anthologies. And, yeah, a few of his sidekicks appear in my story.

Re: Spider-man books

Earlier this year I read "Spider-Man: Wanted Dead Or Alive". I don't recall who the author was, but I remember that one of the editors on the book was Keith R.A DeCandido. I found the book rather enjoyable.

I was admittedly being facetious. I figure seven years is enough time to know something's not happening.

Re: Spider-man books

Craig Shaw Gardner is the author of "Spider-Man: Wanted Dead or Alive" I believe.

I would be interested in hearing your opinions on decompression in modern comics. Personally, I find it somewhat annoying as a comics reader of the 80's and early 90's. I've always read that writers today are made to "write for the trade", but I can't confirm the accuracy of that statement.
