Marvel released the SPIDER-MAN BY ROGER STERN OMNIBUS in March of 2014, and -- Stern being my favorite Spider-writer after Stan Lee -- I promptly dug right in, then spent the rest of the year on an in-depth project dedicated to the review of every single issue, plus some bonus material:

"I think I was about the eighth or ninth person to write Spider-Man, and there were differences in the way we all approached the series. I did my best not to ignore any stories that had come before mine -- I’d collected and read them all -– but I tried to steer a course that was as close to the spirit of the Lee/Ditko/Romita stories as I could get."

HOBGOBLIN LIVES, REVISITED

THE HOBGOBLIN LIVES CHIN-STROKING EXTRAVAGANZA
(I'd say the title of this one pretty much speaks for itself.)
