I remember when everyone was dropping Spidey during the Clone Saga and I stayed on, and I remember when everyone was dropping Spidey after One More Day, and I stayed on, and I remember how sick I was of them going on and on about how "Everything is ruined, they totally destroyed my favorite character," and I would have to say "Listen man, it's a big misstep I agree, but its not worth giving up." So that is why I know right now somebody is going to say the exact same thing to me when I come out and say that this was the issue that made me finally drop Spider-Man, the first comic I ever started reading.I'm not saying that what they did was wrong, sure I feel like it was, but I realize that what's wrong to someone seems right to another person, I'm just saying that reading comics is kind of like being in a relationship. You slowly started to like someone, stay with them through their different stages, and sure its not always good but you stay by them because you know that no matter what happens the person you care about is still there. That is until the day you look at them and realize they're just a totally different person. And seeing Mary Jane making out with someone who isn't Peter when she thinks it is, seeing Pete spend his last days trapped and tortured in quite possibly the most cruel prison I can imagine, knowing that he died without anyone knowing he's gone so not a single tear can be shed over him, all to make way for a darker version of Spider-Man, and knowing that the creators think this is what their audience wants, well it just makes me realize that this series and I have grown apart, and its time I started seeing other people.
