>>79117705 eh, I think he used to be a better writer, I think he can come up with good ideas but hes just shit at writing them. Its time for him to leave Spider-man just cause we need a fresh writer on it.
>>79117799 He fully embraced the piss off the readers for better sales Marvel method. That Squirrel Girl picture with her bashing all the try hard edge of modern comics was written by Slott, who later started writing the same drek he used to hate. Man has a right to change his opinion but its easy to mock and hate him for it. Guy used to write some amazing books, now hes just kinda slogging along with Spider-man.
Just LOOK at the fat fucker. Danny DeVito looks more appealing than that smug fat retard. And Bendis' personality is even worse. I wouldn't ever want to meet that bloated balding fuck in person, I bet he smells fucking awful too.
He revels in ruining characters for his own jollies, Bendis can die of cancer for all I care. I hope his children get run over by a car.
>>79117799 He's an irredeemably terrible character writer and a subpar plot writer. Considering Spider-Man is generally more character-driven than plot-driven, I understand why people don't like him. Plus, I personally find his sense of humor to be obnoxious.
>>79117705 Because he's a subpar writer at best, and while he has some really good ideas, he's terrible at executing them properly. Superior Spider-Man is probably the best example of that: the whole character was Slott's idea, yet literally every other writer (except maybe Bendis and Hickman, who apparently didn't get the memo that this was a different version of Spider-Man) did a better job portraying him.
Overall, he's not a bad plotter, but his writing has almost no depth at all, and he doesn't seem to understand how to do proper character development. Also, while he's pretty good with humor, his attempts to force jokes into otherwise serious moments is lame and tone-breaking. He should just be kept on light-hearted Marvel Adventures style books, but instead they've had him on the flagship title for EIGHT YEARS, with no signs of switching him out any time soon.
Finally, he's very active online and honestly, he's a total asshole. Not only is he terrible at taking even the most polite forms of constructed criticism, but he'll actively seek out message boards where people are criticizing his work and confront them about it in a really aggressive way. This has been going on since his She-Hulk run, which means he's been doing it for at least ten years or so. And his constant boasts about how he plans on writing Amazing Spider-Man for literally the rest of his life are extremely grating to people disappointed with his run (and the longer it goes on, the more likely it seems like those boasts may actually be true).
>>79117705 Because a lot of people on /co/ seem to have trouble thinking for themselves and bandwagon onto whatever some autist on the internet is complaining about that day.
No-one who has read a great deal of comics would call Slott out as being among the worst writers out there. Is current Spidey run is pretty good and whilst the character has been in better hand before - he's been in a lot worse as well. For a pulpy mainline book - Slott is doing a more than reasonable job.
As for his behaviour on the internet - yes, he'd be better off taking a step back - but I've never seen him go full retard. I think he needs to realize that people are going to dislike him though and there's no use getting upset about that.
>>79119892 > Is current Spidey run is pretty good >For a pulpy mainline book - Slott is doing a more than reasonable job. If you have no standards. And yes, he is one of the worst Spider-Man writers out there. The only one who's worse is Howard Mackie.
>>79118309 >>79118377 I think its safe to say that you two fall under the "new fans like him". Go read some goddamn comics that were published before 2008. Your Slott hate will grow with time. Trust in the system.
>>79117705 Because he's STILL writing Amazing spider-man We've had two company wide relaunches and virtually every other book has got a new writer at some point except Spider-man We need a fucking break, a year at minimum.
>>79117705 I don't know if he used to a better writer, all I've read from him is his Spiderman from the Ock/Pete brain switch to Renew your vows. I found him being a bad writer who writes the same shit again and again:
>costantly bashing Peter Parker and having him being an incompetent faggot >shit on loved estabilished characters and light on new fantastic Slott OCs >invincible OC bad guys who in the end just job for no reason
He's not the worst writer around, certainly not the best, the problem is he's been on Spider-Man for waaaaay too long, and it became abundantly clear he ran out of ideas by the end of Superior. The people who dislike him HATE that he's got such a stranglehold on such a beloved character, and even the people who like him are getting a bit tired of him. Only his most die-hard fans are still enjoying Spider-Man with him on it.
The reason why he's been on Spider-Man for so long is that he's the very epitome of a fanboy writer. He wants to write the characters he loves more than anything else, and doesn't want to ever stop. This is why Silver Surfer is basically Doctor Who now, he's a big Doctor Who fan who wants to write Doctor Who, more so than he wants to write Silver Surfer.
I think he's alright, I just want fresh talent on Spider-Man.
>>79120331 >Marc Guggenheim >better writer than Slott I don't like Slott, but Guggenheim is that strange shade of mediocre that's not bad enough to be terrible and not good enough to be at the very least boring and inoffensive. As much as I'm tired of Slott, I'd rather read something by him than Guggenheim's bullshit.
>>79118263 Except that's wrong. He doesn't write Spider-Man. He writes schlock intended solely to piss people off and promote his own fan fiction "they're the bestest and most special ever" characters in the shittiest ways possible. He's completely abusing his title as writer because he's a self indulged fuck who doesn't care for the fans of the thing he's writing. It makes it worse when he acknowledges what he does, but then goes on a fit like a child if someone points out the problems with it. He honest to god thinks he's doing a good job and, like Michael Bay with Transformers, uses earnings to prove it isn't shit.
>>79122852 >had to deal with Spider-fans for nearly a decade He chooses to. And actively trolls them, going out of his way to instigate shit (there is a reason why he routinely gets banned from forums). This wasn't an assignment he was put on unwillingly or something like that.
>>79120867 >Shoehorning in autistic dialogue like "That's crazy-town banana pants!" is a belly buster for sure! It was a reference to Community. But it was a reference that was then written in as being something Peter had always said in the past.
So nobody wins.
>>79120891 He probably has some shit on Alonso or Quesada that keeps him on the title.
>>79123265 Its also him just spending an entire story expressing how much he hates Peter Parker. Think about it, its an entire story about systematically murdering Peter Parker over and over again, universe-by-universe. And more often than not, off panel.
>>79123306 Not only that, but he also went out of his way to make stories where the more innocent Peters died gruesome deaths, like "Spider-Man and His Amazing Friends", the Hostess Pies Spider-Man, and even the MvC3 Spider-Man.
The only one who didn't die was the newspaper Spider-Man, and that was probably because he knew that Stan Lee would use one of his consumed souls to create a tulpa that would haunt Slott for eternity.
