  1. The Awesomed by Comics podcast summed this up better than I can.

    "This is like a fight you’ve had two years ago that everyone has got over but you".

    Spider-man was going ok, it had it’s highs and lows, but this has made the book plummet. The art is good (Paolo Rivera) but the story is so shoe-horned and made to make people understand a story no one liked, but Marvel insist was a moving peice of story telling (it wasn’t).


  2. This is one storyline I wish they OMITted.



    Get it?

  3. I like it.

    I also liked and was moved by omd and I like(d) bnd.

    I am also lead to believe that it sells well. 

    Just goes to show: You can’t please all the people, all the time.

  4. @hart3quin if scientists invented a machine that gave people orgasms 24hrs a day, then yes, you can please all the people, all the time.

  5. Such a machine would lead people to waste away and die while society crumbled to ashes around them. And when the last vestiges of infrastructure collapsed, leaving a sea of befuddled and mildly sticky people hooked up to defunct, powerless machines: Then all the people would not be happy.


  6. I jumped off Spider-Man with the first issue of BND but I’m trying to get this arc because it sounds like the things people didn’t like pre-BND are in it, and that’s the stuff I loved.

  7. At cromulet that sounds like a Warren Ellis pitch

  8. I like the way Quesadilla draws MJ, plump and big boned.

  9. I have been enjoying this, and can’t wait to see how it wraps up

  10. @Zeppo: I heard that too and it’s exactly right.  That being said, I actually thought the last issue had a lot of good character stuff in it and it was a lot better than I was expecting.  I still don’t mind this arc that much, I still think it’s a nice 3-issue breather from all of the action that preceded it and is presumably coming up next.

  11. JMS was good but crazy. OMD was awful. BND and Spider-Man until this have been very, very, very good. OMiT is bad.

  12. As a non-spidey fan, I was really enjoying the last 6 months or so of ASM. OMIT has reminded me how bad Spidey can be and why I dropped ASM during OMD.

  13. I’m getting excited that OMIT is done.  It’s been ok, but I’d like to get back to the good stuff.

  14. @Malecema

    I do enjoy the character interaction Peter and MJ, I think I said this last time, it makes me long for them being to be a couple. They get each other so well, and Mr Q. has actually made me miss their relationship, which I haven’t for most of BND.


  15. For me, this was by far the best of this arc.  I’ll be glad when this wraps up sometime in the future (next issue got pushed back yet again) and we can get back to non-OMD related Spider-man stories.

  16. Solid story, great art and the Marcos back up was beautiful! Excited to see how this wraps up

  17. This was suprisingly good. The first few pages were a little over board (I’ve never been a fan of mircle-cures….in ficition) but after that a solid story. MJ is very heroic, and the dangerous of her and Peter’s life is seriously examined.

    Art is as always beautiful.


  18. Not necessarily bad, but probably the weakest of the OMIT chapters. Probably because it lacks the emotional punch that the last one and, to a lesser extent, the first one possessed.

  19. I think Quesada was correct that they needed to revisit OMD. No one understood what happened. A lot of old fans have been furious because they felt the past 25 years worth of books were all just tossed out. This anger has died down but certainly not gone away. I think the main purpose of OMIT is to sit the reader down and show them, no, the only thing we changed was the wedding. MJ and Peter were even together the whole time, just like you read. They just were not married. This re-writing still has some holes in it (Didn’t MJ and Peter get pregnant and run off to have that kid during the clone crisis… that doesn’t really fit in this re-write. On the other hand most of the clone stuff fits no where).

    Yes, this is plugging holes in the continuity ship, which does not make for the best stories necessarily. But considering that continuity is VERY important to a substantial suset of readers and Spider-man is a legacy Marvel character with thousands of issues that he is standing upon,  I think OMIT is necessary. I just think Quesada did a poor job of it. The framing sequence was awkward and most of the big reveals were lame. He had some very nice quiet moments, but on the whole it is just not a well constructed story. But it is done and we can forget about it until they decide to redo the marriage a year from now, using another title that will be only mentioned using its first initials.

  20. I really enjoy Paolo Rivera’s Spider-Man art, I hope to see him more in rotation some time in the future.
