    Leave your cynicism at the door. Right there. Yes. Next to your memory, experience and pragmatism.

    Great! Enjoy the party. We have Otto Octavius street pizza.

    Thank goodness Mark Bagley is back on this title. Love his work. The other hack they had on this title was a disgrace to the title. He should go back to watching Anime and playing Nintendo DS.

    Bagley rules on Ultimate Spiderman!

      LaFuente came on the book after the enormous run from Bagley and a strong run by Immonen. He went on a top-class monthly as a rather unknown talent at the time, took up the reigns and produced some strong work. Yeah, he’s not Bagley (no one is) but he put some energy and subtle storytelling elements into the book that did the story and characters justice.

      Calling him a hack and a disgrace puts him at Rob Granito’s level, which he certainly is not. You don’t like his work, fine but don’t take a dump on him either for no good reason.

    I enjoyed Immonen’s run, but LaFuente’s run after Ultimatum wasn’t very good, to say the least (Bobby Drake looked like Bobby Hill for criminey’s sake!). I think they had a fill-in who wasn’t bad, but I forget the name offhand.

      If you mean the artist AFTER LaFuente, it was Sara Pichelli
