Re: Spider-Man Post Brand New Day

I loved the JMS run on Spidey (up until the last few storylines, but that was when executive meddling screwed it up), but I enjoy this too. They're very different, but that doesn't mean that one has to be bad for the other to be good. They're good in different ways.

I also liked the Paul Jenkins stuff that was running simultaneously with the JMS run on ASM. Jenkins worked within the married-Spidey continuity but had much the same kind of lightness, wit, and large-ensemble storytelling as BND. Which leads me to believe we could've had something like BND without the whole Mephistophelean reality reset.
