Review: Amazing Spider-Man #639
So far I think this really shuts up the people talking about One More Day, the stories we have got from it have been worth it. The dynamic between these two characters is more intense and better all around compared to when it was just bored. Do I want Peter and MJ to end up together? Not sure but it is a crazy ride.
It's going to take a lot more than a few issues of "I messed up, but I won't ever admit it" comics from that Jerk to do this right. I had to read years of garbage(except one or two stories) just for Big Joey to go "Yep, they're still pissed... I'll pretend to care by making this."
Not starting another OMD flame war, mind you. Just pointing it out that this changes very little for me.
This arc will do nothing but continue the garbage that has been shoveled into comic shops since two years ago. And, I'm sorry, but no. This is not a good story. the first issue was terrible, and this ones no better. The art, although great, is weighed down heavy by a terrible story, idea, and mess.

So you are justifying two or three good story lines compared to the 20 other garbage ones we had to read the past few years? Read the last 100 issues before OMD and compare them to 100 issues after.

I was reading Spider-Man before and after One More Day. I would have figured people would have got over it by now. It happened, it is comics. Things happen, thats what they do. It's like complaining now if a character dies. The marriage was stale and sorry it was not real so what does it matter anyway? Him being Spider-Man is not depended on whom he is with or if he is married. It isn't like Mr. Fantastic not being with Sue where the core is the family. I think most would agree that the past few stories have been excellent especially Grim Hunt. I would really put it up against some of the other stories from the 100 comics before OMD like The Other and the one where Gwen Stacy had sex with the Green Goblin... yeah... that one too.
Just enjoy the ride, if OMIT or Spider-Man is not for you then read something else like Marvel Adventures Spider-Man or Ultimate Spider-Man, both are excellent.
Joe Quesada's method of explaining One More Day/Brand New Day is a horrid failure at best. He cuts up Amazing Spider-Man Annual 21, leaving out all the relevant character points to justify the changes. It doesn't make the Spidey-verse right again, no matter the relevance to current story lines.
I guess we needed this explanation and if you are a long time spidey reader like me this story is probably a bit better than if you haven't read it all. I just think this could have been done a lot better had it included a story where Spider-Man saves MJ from some threat and then them sorting their problems out afterwards.
Also, I really hate the way Quesada draws Peter and MJ. They look awful and I guess MJ can't be a model any more looking like that. On the other hand Rivera’s art, where we go back in time, looks really good and I wish he had drawn the whole issue.
