>Supreme Power is great too. The problem with Amazing Spider-man,
>possibly due to the nature of the book, is it's so often unambitious.

I always try to break up criticism into fair and unfair, productive and
counter-productive, and I think that's a fair criticism. When I came onto the
book, it had been angst ridden and kind of a downer for so long that one of the
things I wanted to do was make it a fun book, the kind of book you feel good
about reading.

Of course, the trouble with this is that it necessitates less ambitious stories
because you only get the big stories by putting your character up a tree and
throwing really big rocks at him.

Having said that, though, I think I'm nearing the limit of what I can handle on
primarily fun stories...I think it's about time to start throwing rocks at him

We all come up snake-eyes sooner or later, y'know....
