Being an idealistic sucker, I've decided to start reading Spider-Man again. There's a wide range of reasons for this decision, and I could elaborate if anyone's interested. Probably not.
Anyway, I'm looking at Spider-Man: Noir. It's supposed to be pretty good, and I like the idea of superheroes getting re-examined as pulp heroes. Whether this is that or just another alternate universe remains to be seen.
Another alternate universe worth mentioning is Marvel 2099, which was pretty cool back in the day (1992 to 1998, when it was canceled). It looks like Marvel is finally starting to recognize that series; Spidey 2099 appeared in the new Spider-Man game (which I haven't played) and there was a miniseries crossing over the main universe and 2099 about two years back. In addition, Spider-Man 2099 is getting released as a trade paperback, and I'm excited. It's only the first ten issues, and you know Marvel will take their sweet time in releasing all 46 issues, but you take what you get.
This has been your daily dose of parentheses poisoning.
Remember our bargain, wizard.
