Cool. I have the harback of the first ten or so issues, and another one comes out late February, so I'll probably pick that up as well. I'll get on it soon. I actually started re-reading the Bendis run there since I bought the first two collections of his run years ago and never finished them. I might wind up reading Bendis' run and then Brubaker's (which I've never read before) before starting on Waid's. I've heard that Brubaker's run is even more bleak than Bendis', so I imagine I'll welcome Waid's writing after all that.It's been amazing. I'll probably put in the same rank, if not, above Bendi's run. The book is consistently good no matter what. I seriously can't recall a single bad issue. As a huge Daredevil fan, making him fun again was the best thing they could have done. There's only so many ways you can try to make someone's life a constant living hell without getting boring.
You don't actually need to read that much if you want to head straight into Superior. ASM #698-700 should be enough to get you all caught up. Either way, Slott's Spidey run has been good, so you'll probably won't be dissapointed. Also, Spider-Island was an entertaining event so you have that to look forward to. It also leads directly into Scarlet Spider, which was one of the best comic books in the past couple of years you SHOULD probably read. Too bad no one was buying it so it got cancelled
Yeah, I figured I could get caught up to the Superior run with the last Amazing story, but the Spider-Man books were always my favourite, and hearing positive things about Slott's run I wanted to go back a bit further. I probably won't get through it until the Superior run is released as a hardback omnibus collection, anyway. I tend to dally. The Scarlet Spider book was actually another reason I wanted to go back a bit further as well. I had no idea what the book was about, then I read that it was basically Kain reborn and that came about in the Spider Island arc. So I probably would've read that at some point, anyway.
