Subj: Out of curiosity: you don't like Roger Stern's work on the title?

yeah, I got nothing more to say. Truth hurts, I know.

That was pretty solidly 1980s, Coyote. Personally, I like Stern better than I do Wolfman and Wein, who wrote most of Spidey's 70s adventures. And while he never gave us a story as classic as The Night Gwen Stacy Died, he was more consistent in quality terms than Gerry Conway, who produced some genuine clunkers in his day.

I'll grant that there's the horrid Denny O'Neil run in between Wolfman and Stern. I suppose it's possible you don't dig Stern's work, and I'm curious to hear why that might be.
