A smidge early, but I'm not planning on buying any more comics the next few days, so...

October 31 marks the end of the first month since July 1982 that I didn't buy a single comic with Peter Parker as a featured character. (It also marks the longest I've gone without buying an issue of Amazing Spider-Man since my copy of #232 arrived in the mail back in the day.)

This isn't an invitation to bust on the current direction or anything (I'll just pile on in the "10 worst decisions" thread \:\-\) ), but I felt the need to mark the occasion somehow.

Wow, that is something else. I remember when I left, not having nearly as many years as you, but it almost felt like a beautiful sunset. On the one hand it is such a habit you think it will not last, but I got used to it. And right away all I thought of was the wealth of good issues out there from the past available to me. A new sunrise, another words. I have that cd-rom with 500 ASM comics now, have yet to read them even though I did kind of go through them without reading page by page. One of these days...
