The stakes have never been higher for Peter Parker. At his darkest hours - and he's had plenty - Peter has always had one shoulder to lean on, one person who'd remind him who he is, who he was, and who he can be. Now he's about to lose that person. What would he do...what would you do, if you only had "One More Day?"
The most-talked about - and controversial - comic event o

I can no longer read new Spider-Man comics. Over 10 years of my reading, and 20 years of continuity - not just in the Spidey world, but with ramifications throughout the Marvel universe - were wiped away in a badly written four part series.

Every character acted completely OUT OF CHARACTER culminating in with Mary Jane and Peter Parker, quite literally, selling their souls to the Devil.

This is without doubt the worst comic book series I've ever read. This is how you kill a hero, and lose readers

J. Michael Straczynski (JMS) final story of his acclaimed and often times polarizing but overall commercially successfully run on Amazing Spider-Man ended with his most controversial storyline: the dissolution of Peter and Mary Jane’s marriage. This was an editorial mandate from Joe Quesada , so JMS’s final story was not entirely his own. Quesada wanted to make Spider-Man more accessible to new and younger readers with an unmarried hero and a streamlined continuity. Quesada’s fingerprints were a ...more

Huh. Pretty much have to separate out what I think of this book from what I think of what it does to the Marvel Universe. The book itself is great - it feels real and the art captures the emotion of the story. The alternate paths of Peter Parker are better than I would have expected or hoped for. The rationale, the process Peter goes through and Peter and MJ go through ...

As for the Universe - the editors and publishers who came up with this just plain suck. You write a continuity, it'd be nice

Well, here it is. The infamous end to JMS’s 6-year stranglehold on Spider-Man. I read this back when it was being released in single issues, and remember just being confused by it, as I wasn’t totally caught up on Spider-Man at the time. But now I’m 100% caught up, and all that’s done is make this goofball story seem even sillier.

About halfway through the book, I thought about giving up. Knowing this was his final Spider-Man story must’ve put JMS in Existentialism Explosion Mode, because every w

Sad. Sad sad sad.

I dunno what all the negative hubbub and hooah's about, but I thunk it to be a nice ending without actually "ending" the character. Who wants to read a story that goes on forever? I love that there's variation - like Ultimate Spider-Man was a much-needed fresh take. I know I've already lost interest in Slott's run and feel like I need a reboot. I'm probably in the minority in that regard.

Then again, I'm pretty bummed out. Married and older Peter is sort of a parallel to my cur

The deal with a devil is so heavily telegraphed in the first issue of this book, it's hard not to see this like some teen drama on the CW, and have just as hard a time taking any of it seriously. There's not one moment of the setup that feels like a genuinely human, quiet, I don't know what to do moment. The most redeeming thing about this book is the art boost compared to the previous book - Queseda is so much more interesting an artist than Garney (at least for what he turned in on Back In Bla ...more
Collecting the "One Day More" arc of stories from the Spider-Man publishing canon. It sees the end of J. Michael Stracynski's epic, six-year run on the flagship title for Spider-Man.

Going into the story, I was already aware of how some elements would play out. Peter must make the choice to save Aunt May for a gun shot wound and death--but at the price of giving up his marriage to Mary Jane. In a lot of ways, this is a huge reset button for the Spider-Man universe, especially in the huge coming o

En esencia, los eventos planteados en "One More Day" son una gran excusa para poder resetear media vida de Spiderman. Pero aún así, como historia es buena.
Algunas partes son decididamente estúpidas (Que el matrimonio de Peter y Mary Jane es uno puro que solo pasa cada mil años? Que deshacerlo es precio suficiente para Mephisto ya que le quita algo a lo que queda claro que es el dios judeocristiano? En cierto modo canonizar dicho dios en un universo que ya contiene incontables deidades y entidade

I came to comics a little later than most, so I started reading Amazing Spiderman when JMS started his run.

I loved it. I read all through the whole mystical aspect of Spiderman, the Ezekiel stuff, Evolve or Die and Civil War.

I loved it all. The chemistry between MJ and Peter always seemed perfect, sure it might've given teenage boys unrealistic expectations of marriage, but it was great. Thier marriage seemed so happy.

Then I read this.........

Firstly I feel sorry for JMS. I hear he was told to

I hated everything about the actual setup--I hate retcons in general, and making a deal with the devil is a particularly cheesy way to do it. BUT, having said that, I really enjoyed the emotion between Peter and MJ in the last two chapters, including some really slow, loving moments which you rarely get in superhero comics. So I'm going to give the book some credit for that.

But in terms of ramifications (both in comics universe, and amongst readers), and making us take Spider-Man comic books ser

Puaj, qué horrible manera de terminar una gran etapa y, de yapa, cagarse en cientos de historias contadas a lo largo de casi veinte años. Si el "mefistazo" me molestó sin haberme considerado jamás fan de Spiderman, no me imagino de haberlo sido el nivel de indignación que tendría, y seguro que votar esta saga con una estrella me parecería mucho. Si no fuera porque tiene algunas partes interesantes y porque el dibujo en general está bastante bien, seguro que le ponía una sola estrellita para mani ...more

Editorially mandated Spider Man reboot (the writer wanted his name removed from the credits) in which Peter Parker sells his marriage to The Devil. Pretty awful, but as I haven't liked the direction Spider Man has been going in for a long time I'm glad they did something.

BTW, Brand New Day is very good.

I didn't think I would enjoy reading this, having been spoiled by Wikipedia; but I was thoroughly surprised to find myself completely agreeing with the decisions that JMS and Joe Q. made for this arc. Well done!

Come on Marvel, you can do better. I find it kind of stupid to be honest. Again and again the same thing. Peter is feeling guilty and he will do anything to make things right, but it never that easy blah blah blah.

Get your hankies ready. This is a really good story, all about what you would do to save a loved one. Though short it is very powerful, and completely changes the Spider universe. I can't really say more without spoiling it, but anyone who likes character based stories will love this. A really good read.

JMS wrote about 75 issues of Spider-Man. That's a pretty long run and I'm going to attempt to give my opinion of the whole thing. It wasn't perfect. It is very hard to do anything original with such a long running character while remaining true to the established character. Especially when the same character also appears in 4 or 5 other series every month all written by different people. But compared to some of the crap writing Spider-Man had suffered over the previous years JMS was a breath of ...more

i am not a fan of retconning, though it is sometimes used to iron out mistakes and inconsistencies, allowing the whole long comic book work to be viewed in a more complex way, mostly i find it to be cowardly and lacking in imagination, of which there is surely no higher a sin in the world of comic books, and yet this happens with sometimes alarming frequency, DC comics have made a habit of it with there seemingly endless stream of "crisis" stories, leading all the way up to the recent "flashpoin ...more

Ni idea si cuenta como libro, pero no deja de ser una lectura xD

Estoy aprovechando ahora que salen estas historietas en mi país para adentrarme al mundo de los cómics.
La historia se sitúa después de los sucesos ocurridos en Civil war (el cómic original, no la adaptación del cine). Peter reveló su identidad como Spiderman al mundo y eso provocó que tanto su tía May como Mary Jane quedaran expuestas ante el peligro, que al final concluye con un disparo hacia May.
