...is there anything remotely close to this that can take its place? Will anything get quite that much hype again? I mean, the speculation started a year and a half ago, when Bendis announced he was taking over the title. Whether or not you're happy with the resolution of this whole thing, you have to admit that it was a really well-kept secret for a long time and it got a lot of people talking. (Too much for my tastes, but I like to complain a lot.)
So will anything, Bendis-related or otherwise, work the fanboys into a froth quite as well as this did, or have we witnessed some sort of once-in-a-lifetime nerd event here?
