I just heard Joe Quesada on the Howard Stern show talk about the recent Spider-Man storyline. I have not read the comic, but the latest issue of PEOPLE Magazine mentioned it.
Joe spoke for about maybe five minutes and it made me kind of sad. He said "MARVEL made the mistake of marrying him off" and he was "Much more exciting as a single character". Did they run out of stories to tell? When I read the magazine article I wondered how they would address the last 20 years of continuity. Joe also said that "There was a wedding day, but the marriage didn't happen." Oh boy.
I remember the 'Wedding day' and it's horrible to know that the last 20 were almost meaningless. To see photos of the reception, check out a previous post.
