  1. Mr Nobody Said,

    I bought the first 8-9 BND Spider-Man trades at WW:Philly this year and read up to and including New Ways to Die. NWtD I already owned and liked a lot, JRJR Spidey gets me every time. What I was surprised at was how much I’ve enjoyed everything else. It’s really good stuff, and while I’m still not convinced these couldn’t be told with a married Peter Parker, I thing I understand it now.
    These stories move at brisker pace. There’s no weight of MJ, in the sense that she needs to addressed constantly. If Peter is married, then by force you need to showcase, or at the very least mention MJ in almost every issue. Otherwise, what’s the point. With the new status quo, that’s no longer needed, so it actually aids the story to dump MJ.
    The reason for that long diatribe is with the upcoming OMIT, I have zero interest in the reason for the end of the marriage, and those questions. Even the MJ whisper scene holds no interest for me, and the only reason I remember it is because Marvel shows it off now and again.
    I really don’t want this to turn into DC/Hal Jordan. When the turned Jordan “crazy” it not only was a natural reaction, but the most interesting the character had or would ever be. Yet, after his big sendoff, they continued to poke his corpse with a cross-time Hal Jordan/Kyle Raynor team-up, the Last Will and Testament of Jordan, Jordan as The Spectre, fruity Jordan-O’s cereal, etc etc. If you want something changed, write the story, leave the old in the sand and move on.
    Plus I don’t know what happened to cool Joe Q. art, but anymore, from OMD to OMIT, he looks like he’s doing a Frank Miller/Billy Plymtpon homage. “That’s Turrible”

  2. Luke Brown Said,

    I agree, for the most part. As long as the stories are good, I don’t particularly hold any grudge against a company for making a decision like splitting MJ and Peter. If the new stories were awful, I’d probably be more upset, but nearly everything that’s spun out of the thrice-monthly ASM has been very solid.
