Back I am. Tash Moore here and I am totally finished with my big move so I can get right back on with making rants about comics. Also, completely forgetting to remove/ any and all typos. Yup. Its a back to basics approach. Huh, kind of like what's going on in the pages of your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man. Did somebody say, yet another reboot. I know I sure didn't. But with Dan Slott at the helm I mean, really, how bad could it be. So without delay, here's my rant on yet, once again, an Amazing Spider-Man #1

Matt at New York Comic-Con 2015: Saturday



This day started much MUCH earlier than the rest. The 6 AM train on a Saturday would not get us there on time for a good spot, so me and a couple friends packed up a car, and crunched the numbers. With tolls and parking, we'd be paying the same exact amount of money as the train would cost, so we might as well get there much earlier than the rest. Up by 4, on the road by 4:30. We arrive at the Javits Center around 5:30, 6, and still had to wait a block and a half away. Not too bad for a Saturday though. Sure, the wait sucks, but we're in good company and the time flies by like nothing. That is, for whatever reason, until we hit the basement.

Matt at New York Comic Con 2015: Friday

Well, my day doesn't have the best of starts, but it also doesn't have worst. I wake up bright and early, get showered and dressed, and make it to the train station just in time to see the first train of the morning pull off. I just haaaaaaad to take that extra 3 seconds putting on my socks, didn't I? Then to make matters even better, my 6:30 train is 10 minutes late, giving more time to the early birds to line up ahead of me. I finally get to New York and what a beautiful place every single time. I swear, I'll never get tired of seeing this city, no matter how many times I come here. I catch a cab and book it to the Jacob Javitz Center and there's already a short line of people. A friend of mine who actually caught that 6 AM train is part of the first hundred in line, which just kind of adds salt to the wound, but the line isn't much longer. My spot in line is about three blocks away, or wrapped around the same block 3 times. It's now about 7:30 and the wait begins. Got my headphones in, got some good comics to read, the time goes by like nothing. Next thing I know, its roughly 10 AM and we're being allowed to hit the showroom floor.
