Not really. This column deals in rumour, speculation, and even gossip (Yay! I win the Redundancy Award for the day! Thank you, thank you). Even though I try to remain consistent, it could be that one instalment I may tell you something and the next I could be contradicting myself. This is one of those moments. See, new information I’ve come across points to Jeph Loeb and David Finch taking over Amazing Spider-Man after their work on Civil War – Fallen Son: Spider-Man. Yet another source told a gnome of mine that the team of Loeb and Finch is “RED HOT”… which is supposed to hint at what’s in the cards for them.
Do I retract my previous reports that Ed Brubaker or Brian Reed will take over writing duties on ASM once JMS leaves the title? Nope. Oh, I’m cheap, aren’t I? I’m just throwing everyone’s name out there, yeah? Honestly, I’m just publicly saying that my eggs are not all in one basket and never really were. Don’t you Spidey fans worry, I’ll keep close tabs on this and maybe I can get something more solid before New York Comic-Con. No promises, sadly.
Loeb, Brubaker and/or Reed... I'd take any of them...
"It's disturbing when young people believe right-wing political hype. It's like rock n' roll never happened."
I haven't been into anything Loeb has done in the last God-knows- how long. I don't read Amazing though, so I guess it doesn't really affect me (other than he won't be writing any books I do read I guess)
