Not buying them. Will occasionally read them.

*shifty eyes*

> Friendly Neighborhood Spider-man

Trades. Probably would have gotten it monthly if not for the crossover at the beginning.

> Spider-man Family
>

Yes, I’m getting it. I’m amazed that I haven’t seen Marvel trying to push it on newsstands/grocery stores. I really think this format I the future of printed comics.

> Spider-man/Fantastic Four
>

Waiting for the trade/digest (though I’d be reading it now if only I’d had a little bit more cash on me at the time). Jeff Parker does great work so I’d sure this’ll be good.

> New Avengers
>

Haven’t read since the first arc.

> Ultimate Spider-man
>

Used to pick up hardcovers but I’m WAY behind.

> Ultimate Power(featuring Ult. Spidey)
>

Not even remotely interested in reading.

> Spider-girl

I go back and forth on this one. Right now I’m reading it monthly and getting the digests of the issues I just read back when my library was getting it. However the increasing decompression (gah, this used to be a book you could count on for single issue stories) and upcoming direction (Carnage? Seriously?) have me wondering if I should JUST get the digests.

> Spider-man Loves Mary Jane
>

Nah.

> Marvel Adventures: Spider-man
>

I get the digests and I LOVE IT.

> Marvel Adventures: Avengers
>

I get the digests and I LOVE IT even more than its sister comics.


> Thunderbolts (featuring Venom and Green Goblin)
>

Nah, it went to crap when Fabian left.

The Zemo mini he wrote was great though.

> Exiles (featuring Spider-man 2099)
>

I used to get it monthly (except for the first Chuck Austen run) but eventually (around World Tour) switched to trades. Based on what I’ve heard about Claremont’s run, I’m not sure I’ll be getting any more.

> Marvel Zombies vs Army of Darkness (featuring Zombieverse Spidey)
>

Nah, I just don’t see the appeal (and this is coming from someone who reads Walking Dead trades) of superhero Zombies.

Loners is okay (though not as good as it could have been) and uses Mattie Franklin (third Spider-Woman), Johnny Gallo (Ricochet from Slingers), and Phil Urich (the good Green Goblin).

Runaways (the series that introduced the Loners/Excelsior as a team) uses a lot of Spidey related characters (the ones I mentioned, Spidey himself, Cloak & Dagger, Swarm). They have both the Punisher and the Kingpin just in the last issue.

Cable & Deadpool (Lightmaster, Solo, Rhino), She-Hulk (just about everyone shows up in here eventually but JJJ and John had HUGE roles for a while), and the upcoming Super Villain Team-Up series all seem in a hurry to retcon all the throwaway Spidey villain deaths in Punisher: War Journal. That’s fine by me because a Marvel without a Shocker isn’t one I want to read about anyway. ;\-\)
