    So you say you hate "Superior Spider-Man?" Well fear not Friend Of Old Marvel, to show our utter disdain for you, the loyal reader, we give you "Superior Team-Up," "Superior Foes" AND "Superior Carnage!!" Three more reasons each month to throw your hands up and say "WTF Marvel?!!" Join us every two weeks as Peter Parker grapples with the most deadly foe he's ever faced: Dan Slott! (I mean, hey, after we didn't fess up to "Brand New Day," you didn't think we'd actually apologize for this latest mess did you. Haha...c'mon...really?)

    What exactly makes an ongoing nowadays? Seems like every comic series should be called a "Limited Series" until the company decides to start it at #1 again.

    @#6... Yet none of these announcements seem to be that big of a deal. A new arc, a new series, a rebranding and a mini. It's alot for one week, but certainly not something I'd spin as "SUPERIOR SPIDER-MAN WEEK!!!!"

    Guess this means no Peter back for a while. If this continues much longer, I might stop reading Spidey adventures.

    "great for lapsed and new readers alike!"They're trying not to come out and say "those who quit the book after we killed off the character".

  6. Phantom Roxas

    Spider-Man isn't going to be an Avenger, so it makes no sense to keep around a book built around the premise of him being an Avenger.

    @5 That's... quite a lot of announcements for one office in one week isn't it? Slott also did a reasonably long interview with Newsarama about his upcoming plans if that helps.

    So, what was the point of "Superior Spider-Man" week again? All they did was announce a new ongoing, a new mini series, advertise a upcoming storyarc, and change the title on one of the books. Was it a slow news day around the Spider-Man offices?

    Well, technically "Superior Spider-Man Team-Up" itself is not an accurate description of what the book is. Because Chris Yost says in that same interview: "in my heart when I say 'Team-Up' for 'Superior Spider-Man,' I probably mean 'Versus.'"

    I won't read this, so I have no right to yawn But what if: Marvel Publishes two monthly Spider-Man Team-Up titles?

  11. Nick MB

    Avenging sales haven't been great, so yeah, they're relaunching it as Superior Spider-Man Team-Up with the same writer to try and make it seem more important to the Superior Spider-Man storyline, I think. And to be fair, the new title also makes it a bit clearer what the book actually is.

    Isn't that just what Avenging Spider-Man is? Are they going to cancel Avenging then? I'll buy/read it until I stop liking it, but it seems a little redundant.
