    (Although I usually cite Sensational volume 1 for that honor, because Untold Tales is it's own animal, being outside of current continuity and whatnot...)

So basically, it helps to have a short run? \:\-\) Less opportunities to stink and all that...

(Not that that's a guarantee of success - see Spider-Man Unlimited.)

    By the way, no Marvels coverage?

I was going back and forth on whether or not to include that and by the time I got to Busiek I forgot about it completely! But let's see, based on memory... liked the panel with Spider-Man from the view of the people in the building; amused by Sheldon's dislike of Peter Parker because he built his career on making Spider-Man look bad; and enjoyed the Gwen stuff, although in my more critical moments I think it got a little too "Saint Gwen" for my taste. But that was only in retrospect so I guess he was doing something right! \:\-\)

Busiek has a way of "recapturing old elements" which is very appealing in some projects (UTOS, JLA/Avengers, parts of Avengers, etc.) and less appealing in others (Iron Man, other parts of Avengers, etc.).
