    I've never read Parrarell Lives, but I am a huge fan of Peter and MJ as a couple. So if this is all Marvel has to offer, I'll take it.

  2. Parabolee

    @#3 Jon - Your telling me you think the new movie costume is better than the classic duds? LOL. Sure buddy, I'm sorry to tell you that your in a TINY minority!

  3. Web-Head

    They're reprinting some Spidey graphic novels, in April Hooky comes out. I really doubt they're doing it to piss people off. Some cool stuff coming in May, I want the Identity Crisis trade. Never read that before!

  4. SpectacularSpiderGuy

    They're still printing new digests, but they refuse to finish printing the Spider-Girl ones. AAAGRH!

  5. Stuart Green

    Well, thanks to "Amazing" #686, that's the first time I've ever heard "Jocko!" used in a description for the ends of the Earth. It's also very surprising to me that it costs $5 for a 64 page reprint of "Parallel Lives", a story about a marriage Marvel went out of their way to say never happened, and yet it costs $4 for a 32 page issue of "The Amazing Spider-Man" about a single Spidey. A $1 difference for 32 more pages. Weird. I already own "Parallel Lives", but I may get a spare or two just to bump up sales in support of the Spider-Marriage.

  6. Parabolee

    Oh yeah, and I hate the lack of the red parts on the new "Ultimate Spider-Man" cartoon costume. Still it's a lot better than the new movie costume I guess. http://www.spidermancrawlspace.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2012/02/USMADV2012002_cov.jpg

  7. Parabolee

    Why are they re-releasing Parallel Lives? As an Fu to fans of the marriage? To test if marriage fans represent any actual sales? A strange reprint. I already own a copy so unless it has a new cover or extras I'm going to be pretty annoyed when I re-buy this just to show my support of it's content :)
