Oh god, George Wood had correspondents.

Skip to 1:28 for a primer on 90s comic book human anatomy.
So I have to read issues 201, 202 and 203 of The Amazing Spider-Man, then 52, 53 and 54 of just Spider-Man...then 1, 2 and 3 of The Uncanny Spider-Man, then 24, 25, 26 of The Amazing Spider-Man, but only if I read issues 78, 89 and 101 of Clone Spider-Man Wars...but the story won't make sense without Spider-Man: Teen Idol 15, 19, 22, 34 and 35B, not 35A. When you've read all of those, the story ends with Peter Parker waking up realizing it was all just a dream. If you want more backstory though, read 89, 90, 91, 95, 102 and 113 of The Real Spider-Man, where his dream is actually reality...except there is a time travel mishap, so you better read...etc, etc, etc.
Gee, I wonder why kids don't read comics anymore.

So pretty much standard Marvel operating procedure.

I chalked it up to lack of live action holodisks.

I actually... now that I think about it, the Clone Saga was the exact point where I stopped ready comics. I didn't really ever start again, save for Agent X and a couple DMZ's.

I wonder how common this was.

Yeah, this was the storyline where I gave up on comics as a teen as well. They managed to take one of the most-relatable and likable superheroes and just bury him in an endless maze of nonsense.

I like comics, but even in grade school (in the 80s) I couldn't understand the appeal of superhero comics.

Superheros tended to be dull to me. I went for more like Sgt Rock, The 'Nam, Creepy Tales, Eerie, Tales From The Crypt. I still have a ton of that in the basement.

I could probably fall asleep to this guy's summary lists to the meandering guitar riffs.

Even the bible takes less time to read.

Yeah, EC, Peter Bagge, older Crumb and Bloom County were what really did it for me as a tween. Oh, and pre-Simpsons Matt Groening. My best friend and I were kind of obsessed with Life In Hell in 6th and 7th grade. Later on I discovered The Magic Whistle and Jim Woodring and more recently the original, mid 70s run of Howard The Duck.

Closest thing to a superhero comic I was much into was Reid Fleming. The Marvel and DC stuff just seemed really pedantic and felt like the same things happened over and over in slightly different form. I didn't even like the Superman movies that much as a kid. Enjoyed them but never felt like rewatching them.

Oh, and the 60s/70s magazine-format horror comics like Creepy were always fun when I found one at a yard sale or something.
