May "Mayday" Parker-- daughter of Peter and Mary Jane.

And, all told, more than 130--
However, despite Lowe's statement, Marvel announced that #100 would be the title's final issue. Although the Spider-Girl title was indeed canceled, the book was relaunched as The Amazing Spider-Girl, with issue #0 appearing in October 2006.

On October 11, 2008, Tom DeFalco announced that Amazing Spider-Girl would be canceled with issue #30, though he revealed that, due to the company's love of the character, she could possibly be given a sixteen-page back-up strip in Amazing Spider-Man Family.[2] On November 8, 2008, Marvel EIC Joe Quesada confirmed that Spider-Girl would indeed become a feature in the monthly anthology magazine Amazing Spider-Man Family. The series would replace the feature Mr. and Mrs. Spider-Man, written by DeFalco, which served as a prequel series to the Spider-Girl universe.

On March 18, 2009, Marvel announced that Spider-Girl would continue publication as Spectacular Spider-Girl, a web-comic released through Marvel's Digital Comics Unlimited.[3] The title would continue to be simultaneously published in paper form within Amazing Spider-Man Family. Amazing Spider-Man Family #5 (published April 2009) through #8 (July 2009) contained these Spider-Girl stories until the title's cancellation with issue #8.

The new "Spectacular Spider-Girl" stories were then contained in Web of Spider-Man. This lasted for 7 issues before being moved to its own eponymous 4-issue limited series, Spectacular Spider-Girl, which wrapped up most of the series plot threads. This was followed by one last Spider-Girl tale, Spider-Girl: The End.
I loved Spider-Girl. It was real old-school style Marvel storytelling at its finest. A refreshing change of pace from what comics have become.

"Spider-Girl" was excellent, including the original What If issue that introduced the concept. Highly recommend checking them out if you can.

it was basically a bunch of books given to tom defalco (former eic of marvel) set in an alternate universe (MC2) that let him do what he wanted instead of shitting up the main marvel universe since Tom Defalco during his tenure as EiC gave himself Thor and FF following in the steps of Walt Simonson and basically destroyed those books.

I liked what he did.

It was simple good and evil stuff.

Did the sales go in the toilet?

Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

Yeah it was a cult book but never a strong seller which was why it was on the bubble so many times and eventually cancelled and then brought back. Most of it was still very good.

Books in the toilet don't run a 100 issues.

Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

The numbers iirc were close to the bottom of the top 100 back when it was running close to ~20K. It probably helped immensely that DeFalco was a former EiC at Marvel, that was his pet project and they mostly used cheap artists. Same deal with the relaunch of Thunderstrike imo.

Uncanny Avengers #18. This is where it's going to start falling apart for me. I hate dystopian alternate reality stories. It is SO over-done. I hope this doesn't take place over many issues.

The ending of the Trial of Jean Grey, and indeed the entire story, was a whole lot of nothing. Pretty art, though...

Hickman's Avengers is seriously spinning its wheels and has been for awhile...

Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

Dystopian alternative realities are Rick Remender's bread and butter. It's like asking Frank Millar not to write something without whores.

Agreed about Avengers.

New Avengers is improve though at a snail's pace.

Spectacular Spider-Man #30...



New Avengers has been particularly time-wasting. Issue after issue of our characters sitting around and watching alt versions of themselves doing the exact same thing over and over??? Why???

Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

Bendis invented a new Ship just for people like me who adore fuckeduppedness.

Try saying "Queen Kitty Quill" 5 times as fast as you can.

So when Professor K is sitting on the throne of Spartax in ten years, how exactly are all the Hate Groups on Earth going to deal with the fact that a Jewess (I think that word is fine?) controls 1/5th of known space?

With how cults of personality's work, without even asking anyone, to be like their new Queen, who is super cool and really pretty, its more than possible that billions of random Spartaxians might decide to convert.

MELL BROOKS WAS RIGHT!

JEWS IN SPACE!
