"But, Reg, we're getting an Ultimate Spider-Man cartoon in 2011!"
And because said cartoon is coming, this means the death of Spectacular. Why create another Spidey show so soon when they already had a the best Spidey show ever and an amazing crew handling said show? Does not compute.
At any rate, I'd love for Spectacular to be continued somehow. If not in animation, perhaps in comic form. I'd love for Marvel to just give Greg a comic to let him continue his work but, but it doesn't seem likely. Speaking of Greg, he really seems to be a "take it on the chin" kinda guy. Truly, he's one of the best in the business and just an all around great guy.
Ultimate Spider-Man will have to be one incredible show because Spectacular pretty much raised the bar for Spidey in animation. Lots of fans are already ready to bear their fangs at Ultimate, and it's not hard to see why. I mean, this show did kill off Spectacular and if a whole new crew is involved (which seems to be the case way things are going) then Ultimate could end up joing Spider-Man Unlimited as one of the most forgettable Spidey shows. I suppose we'll have to see how things pan out.
I'll be picking up the season two DVD of Spectacular whenever it comes out and I'll try to give Ultimate a chance.
R.I.P, Spectacular Spider-Man. I guess only the good really do die young.
