...This.

Wow.  What a change a New Year makes.  From 30 books to 10.  10!!  If I was still ordering from Midtown, I'd skip this week because it's not worth the shipping cost for so few books!

I would be very surprised if there wasn't something I missed.

OMD OMG

I am way too amused watching the One More Day poll at Newsarama.

3300 people are calling it the worst story ever, and a whopping 150 are hailing Marvel for for a brilliant story, and couldn't be happier.

Now, I've been well aware that the internet is often a vocal minority, but it's not always wrong.  3% is about the number of people who will love ANYthing.  This is really way beyond that vocal minority, I think.  My store has many people dropping Spidey, if not Marvel entirely.  I think those positions are a BIT silly and extreme, but this whole thing with Peter so galactically stupid that he would ever think making a deal with Mephisto is a good idea is not going to go over well, I think.

Should be fun to see how Joe Q spins this one. And saying that the Spidey unmasking won't be undone by it being a dream, or imaginary story. Um...is "the devil made it go away" any better or different?

Ghost Rider really needs to come along and punch Peter in the face.  "Did you learn nothing from my origin story?!"
