      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.

    I remember wondering when I quit after OMD if I would truly be able to stick with my decision to quit - this being such a longtime hobby and all - but I quickly found that not only was it far easier to quit than I had anticipated, I enjoyed saving the money and not supporting the current direction. Put your money toward something that makes you happy, not the garbage they're trying to force-feed fans now.

I have spent my time finding and trying to complete a Marvel Team up run since quitting. I get my spider fix, and again, am not supporting something i don't like/agree with.
