As bad as One More Day is...

There are some aspects I like of the graphic novel. I just wished they hadn't basically destroyed everything that is Spider-Man. But the essence is still there. Spider-Man still has his humor, his charm, and his self-worth. There are some really, really bad parts though.

Though, Wolverine + Spider-Man = instant comedy gold. Those two work so well together.

Re: As bad as One More Day is...

My problem with "OMD" is the everything is same except that the marriage between Peter and MJ never happened. Using Mephisto to make this happen was a real turn off for me. I have since stopped reading AMS.

Erasing Peter and MJ's marriage was a mistake. It was sloppy. If they reallly wanted the two apart they should have had them divorce or have MJ die. Now at least that would have been interesting.

Re: As bad as One More Day is...

I'm of two minds: I think the retcon was a big mistake and handled poorly. However, I have been really enjoying BND. It has been fun, exciting, and a good time. Plus last week's Flash issue was really powerful (ironically, enhanced because of the continuity).

One More Day, the Mephisto retcon book was certainly terrible.

However Brand New Day, the revamped 3 times a month Amazing Spider-Man title, has been great. For the first time in years Spider-Man is actually a good book. It has done much to reverse all the damage the last 20 years have heaped unto the character.

Re: As bad as One More Day is...

Sorry Brand New Day Stupid titles. But yeah, it's been good. I didn't like how they made Parker become a paparazzi. They introduced some better characters though, and I do wonder if Parker will become a teacher.

Yeah, but that was all for three issues before he quit and now works for Frontline.

Re: As bad as One More Day is...

I'll admit that I'm of the X-Men/Batman/40s Superman school, but I really dislike Brand New Day. I care less about the how and why of the situation (see note) than I do about the quality of the stories, and have been badly disappointed. They just seem . . . pointless. I hadn't read more than four or five Spider-Man comics (not counting Spider-Girl) until just before the start of Civil War, but I've read quite a number since (though few of the more famous stories). This is the first time since the Larson era (well, the Weiringo era on Sensational was pointless but fun) that the book has seemed entirely inconsequential from month to month. There's a sense of impermanence and unreality to the writing; it seems as though what's on the page is just what the writers felt like doing with Spider-Man today, rather than being what's going on in Peter Parker's life right now. (I know the latter is always true, but it's really come through during Brand New Day; there's no sense of fictional reality.) It's like a serious pastiche of Spider-Man that happens to star the character himself.


(Note) I do wish Peter and MJ were still together, though . . . well, actually, I wish Peter and Gwen were, but understand why that should never happen.

Ultimate Spider-Man is the only Spider-Man.

^ It does rather render the main Spider-Man pale.

Re: As bad as One More Day is...

I've always been disturbed by the inability of comic (and some other medium) writers to handle permanent adult relationships. I thought the Pete/MJ marriage was the best thing ever (although I also wish it'd been Gwen). I thought geeting rid of MJ was the most immature, assinine, backward, cowardly move ever made by an editor. Ya hear me Joe?!

I've always been disturbed by inability of real life humans to handle permanent adult relationships. We tend to muck things up pretty badly.

Re: As bad as One More Day is...

Don't read the comics consistently, but I think its cool that one of if not the last pre-OMD issues was Peter goading JJJ into hitting him, by Peter David, a pretty good conclusion/analysis to the relationship (although there've been precedents).

Re: As bad as One More Day is...

"one more day" is comic nerd gobbledygook. It's the sort of story that only the worst 'basement dwelling geek' stereotype could love.
