> According to "All the Rage" on Silver Bullet Comics, Dan Slott is leaving "She-Hulk" to pick up something big. Seeing as Mr. Slott has risen through the ranks very quickly at Marvel, and they obviously think very highly of his work (giving him "Avengers: The Initiative" and having him at the recent annual creative summit), coupled with the fact that he is the writer of the FCBD "SM: Swing Shift," I think it's fair to speculuate that he will be the next writer of ASM. Reportedly, the announcement will be made in June at Wizard World in my hometown of Philly.
> My reaction (if true): I'm speechless. This is exactly what I've been calling for for months (if not years), and I could not be more excited. Slott was born to write ASM, and I truly believe if he gets the job, he will knock it out of the park. I really hope this happens.

I think Loeb is more the kind of writer they are searching for on the flagship title.

To make everyone happy, we could have Loeb on Amazing, Slott on sensational instead of Sacasa and keep PAD on FNSM.

The current Wolverine arc is complete trash with XTREME 90S painted all over it. That, and it's taking some elements from Earth X and putting them in 616.

Follow that up with the horrible dialoge in Fallen Son, and while I won't say I'd definately drop Amazing, it'd be on the table.

Loeb can be a good writer. Spider-Man: Blue has him writing in a diary/journal like style, and he can do that. But when the character he's portraying is talking, the words seem forced and horribly scripted, not conversation-like at all.
