Spider-Man, The Amazing Thread

Yeah I remember Rags Morales on Newsarama said to Liefeld something like “You’d chop off your right hand and attached mine to it if you could” on Newsarama when talking about drawing skills. :rofl: Rags got temp banned from Newsarama.

I’ve heard from everyone that Rags is a jerk in real life. I still like Rags’ artwork and everything. Sometimes fans have to seperate the art from the artist.

This goes quadruple for a lot of musicians out there. Not easy being a Kanye West fan sometimes lol please stop doing interviews. :rofl:

Spider-Man has a zero tolerance rule when it comes to the unemployed, homeless beware his wrath.

ASM #649 drops tomorrow!


#1145

ASM #649 was cool once again. The first few pages surprised me! :wow:


#1146

“Amazing #649” was great, but I really enjoyed Ultimate #150. Some very good guest art work, and some interesting stories. Inspirational, and took a look at a side of Spider-man that I miss reading, and was especially appropriate with what is going on presently in that series.

Still looking forward to his upcoming “death” story.


#1147

EXTREMELY satisfied with Big Time right now, if they can keep this up, we’re in for an unforgettable run IMO.

The beginning confused me a bit, but that’s because It’s been a while since I’ve gone any further back than OMD ( a few years)

pretty sure if I went back for a refresher, i’d make more sense.

Cliffhanger endings make me :frowning:

This is only twice monthly now right?


#1148

Yeah ASM is bimonthly. Two comics a month but the issues are HUGE! Takes me like a half hour to get through one story instead of the usual 10 / 15 minutes.

***First ‘Spider-Man’ preview filled with problems

Not even Spider-Man could avert this disaster.

Last night’s opening pre view of Broadway’s most expensive production ever, “Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark,” was an epic flop as the $65 million show’s high-tech gadgetry went completely awry amid a dull score and baffling script, theatergoers griped.

Stunned audience members were left scratching their heads over the confusing plot – when they weren’t ducking for cover from falling equipment and dangling actors at the Foxwoods Theatre on West 42nd Street, some said.

At various points, overhead stage wires dropped on the audience, scenery appeared on stage missing pieces – and the show’s star was even left swaying helplessly over them midair during what was supposed to be the climatic end to the first act.

The production – directed by Julie Taymor of “Lion King” fame and with a score by U2’s Bono and The Edge – appeared cursed from the start, audience members said.

It opened with Taymor’s personal creation, the eight-legged female character Arachne, taking the stage.

The spider is the radioactive arachnid that bites Peter Parker, giving the photographer his superhuman Spider-Man powers.

As the character, played by actress Natalie Mendoza, finished her big number “Rise Above” while suspended over the crowd, an apparent wire malfunction left her stopped in midair – where she remained for an embarrassing seven or eight minutes as stagehands worked feverishly to figure out the problem.

The stage manager finally said over the loudspeaker, “Give it up for Natalie Mendoza, who’s hanging in the air!”

The show had to be stopped four times in the first act alone for various snags.

Parker’s love interest, Mary Jane, was supposed to be saved from atop the Chrysler Building. But part of the building was missing, and Mary Jane was no where in sight.

As puzzled theater patrons looked around, Spider-Man – played by Reeve Carney – suddenly flew in with Mary Jane in his arms and put her down on stage.

He was then supposed to fly off in a dramatic end to the first act.

Instead, Spider-Man got stuck in midair and swung back and forth over the crowd as three stagehands leaped up and down futilely trying to grab onto one of his feet to haul him back to earth.

Another sticky situation involved Spider-Man nemesis Green Goblin, said disgruntled audience members.

As the Goblin – played by Patrick Page of “Grinch” fame – sat down at the piano for a scheduled number, he was left to continue playing on . . . and on . . . as stage workers openly rushed around to fix faulty equipment.

Page finally started vamping it up for grateful audience members, riffing on the tune, “I’ll Take Manhattan.”

“This is the best part of the whole show,” grumbled theatergoer Steve Poizner of California.

The production dragged on for nearly 3½ hours.

In its last 10 minutes, the show was completely stopped for at least half that time to work out kinks.

“I don’t know about the rest of you, but I feel like a guinea pig tonight!” one woman angrily shouted out from her orchestra seat during the down time.

“I feel this was a dress rehearsal!”

Taymor was at the preview, as was producer Michael Cohl, although Bono and The Edge were in Australia on tour with U2.***

How horrible…but funny :rofl:


#1151

Lol yeah I read the reviews on it this morning. I haven’t heard anything get bashed so hard since X-Men Origins: Wolverine lol.


#1152

Why did I read that?:sleep:


#1153

First look at the new Venom.

#1158

Preview was nice, but just how long does anyone think Peter is gonna keep his identity secret? I mean, he works in a building full of geniuses…someone is gonna find out.

And if it wasn’t for the new job, I would’ve felt really bad for him not getting paid in NA#7 lol.


#1159

Well via the very confusing OMD / BND psychic block (laid out when Spider-Man re-revealed his identity to the Fantastic Four) no one will actually figure his identity out. Still the book has to be written in a way that it seems like people might be able to figure it out to not confuse new readers or reference stuff that should never be mentioned again. :rofl:

Yeah that was funny about Spider-Man not getting that Avengers money lol! If he did get paid it would conflict with the first issue of Big Time. Or he’d have to lose his check right after or something.


#1160

I hope this is along the lines of early Venom: Lethal Protector work. As in like, good shit for a Venom comic. Also I don’t think it’s Flash Thompson…that would be incredibly stupid.

Still need to pick up the last Spidey comic, and now this one pretty soon.
