Evan Dorkin drew this for me at MoCCA... even after we made a murderous monster of him in our comic.
He was very funny to talk to even though I was incredibly nervous that he would hate us... and, you know, kill us.

Read The Amazing Spider-Man #560-562 over the weekend.
These issues made up the last 2 parts of Dan Slott and Marcos Martin's 3-parter (featuring the new villain, Paper Doll) and the first chapter of Bob Gale and Mike McKone's swing at keeping Spidey interesting for a month.
These 2 arcs make up the first attention I've paid at all to Brand New Day.
I enjoyed Marcos Martin's art immensely and Dan Slott has a great handle on writing good Spidey dialogue, but ultimately it just felt like cotton candy.
You know, just fluff with no real substance.
And confusing fluff at that.
Mary Jane remembers they were together, but Pete doesn't?
She knows he's Spider-Man?
People remember Spidey being involved in Civil War, but not that he unmasked?
I mean, I get that we're not supposed to have all the answers yet, but I really don't understand what the point of all of this was.
