Big fan of Spider-Man comics here. I had previously read everything from the start of JMS's run through Back in Black (right after Civil War). About 2 months ago I dropped about $100 to get everything from then until about a year ago in trades on Half.com.
While the One More Day stuff was lame, the Spider-Man that came out of the reset has been really fun to read. There isn't much deep and meaningful about it -- it comes down to Peter Parker dealing with the same crap he always has been and Spider-Man cracking jokes + fighting bad guys. But that is why I like to read Spider-Man, so it's been a great ride for me. There has been a ton of material since One More Day, so it's easy to pick and choose what stories you want to read and not miss too much of the long-term details.

Spiderman in FF has intrigued me, but if it ends like Spiderman in New Avengers then it will be Peter in the background cracking the occasional joke when really if they put their minds to it anyone of the roster could do that job. While, I like a Peter who cracks jokes and beats up bad guys, I like him with some depth.
Some real good stuff this week, and one disappointment. Let's start with the disappointment. Uncanny X-Men #486: Brubaker wraps up his Shi'ar empire saga, although wrap-up is perhaps being a bit generous. More accurately, it just stops.
