Peter David did a Q&A on his blog, so of course I took the opportunity to ask a question*g*


Lore: 

Is there any chance of Peter actually getting to have a conversation with Betty Brant in FNS?
I love to have her back in the book, but I'd love it even more to see her actually talk with Peter or Mary Jane.

Peter David: 

BOY, YOU'RE GOING TO LOVE THE NEXT FNSM STORY ARC. YES, BETTY AND PETER ARE FINALLY GOING TO BE FACE TO FACE.

Lore:

And is there any reason why so little was shown of the people's reaction to seeing Spider-Man's face after the unmasking? I just always wondered why we didn't get to see more people's reactions to finding out there's a very human guy underneath the mask.
(that and you'd think he'd run into some people who'd at least be grateful to him for saving their life/friend/familymember/city/country/planet...)

Peter David:

YOU MEAN WHY SO LITTLE OF IT WAS SHOWN IN OTHER BOOKS? BECAUSE FNSM HAS BEEN DEALING VERY SQUARELY WITH THAT. ON THE OTHER HAND, FNSM ALSO IS THE LOWEST SELLING, SO MAYBE THE OTHER TITLES HAVE THE RIGHT IDEA. DON'T GET ME WRONG: MANY, IF NOT MOST, FANS ON THE INTERNET SAY THEY WANT TO SEE THE SAME TYPES OF STORIES YOU'RE CITING. BUT AS ALWAYS, THERE'S A VAST GULF BETWEEN WHAT THE INTERNET SAYS IT WANTS AND WHAT THE BUYING PUBLIC ACTUALLY SUPPORTS. FNSM DEALS MOST DIRECTLY WITH THE HUMAN-LEVEL ASPECTS OF THE UNMASKING, AND IT DRAWS THE LOWEST NUMBERS, SO...DO THE MATH.
