Spidey Super Score!

I was in Circuit City yesterday, killing time before my bus arrived so I could go home. Browsing the computer software section, I noticed they had a few copies of the Fantastic Four & Silver Surfer: The Complete Collection. I figured, if they had some of those, they may have the Amazing Spider-Man: The Complete Collection. Sure enough, they had one copy left and I'm proud to say I am the now the owner of said last copy.

The box isn't nearly as big as I thought it would be. In fact the thing is roughly the size of a DVD case. On top of that, it's pretty light. But really, the thing could be the weight of a toothpick and I wouldn't care. One of my most coveted Spidey collections is finally mine!! Now I can read "Where Cometh the Commuter," "Nothing Can Stop the Juggernaut" and I can see for myself how bad the '98 reboot really was. So yeah, I'll be talking about the issues I read that I've never read before as I go along.

MWAHAHAHAHAAAHAHAHAHHAHAHHAHAHAAH!!! (about reading the '98 reboot)

I think the main good thing you'll get to read in there is the Green Goblin story around issue #25.

I was just thinking of that story, Tommy. Did Jenkins do some or all of that issue?

Surprisingly, Howard Mackie did Pt. 1.

In Amazing Spider-Man:
Mackie wrote the "Final Chapter", the reboot and kept writing until JMS came in Amazing#30
