    Surprisingly enough, this has been a great storyline so far. As much as I don't like to see whole issues of people working out relationship problems because I'd rather see heroes fighting villains, this issue works. For me, it's more than just a great story, with the added bonus of some fantastic looking artwork. I'd highly recommend this issue to anyone that's ever been a Spider-Fan. To everyone else, pick up issue 638 AND 639 to see what I'm talking about. Read Full Review

    I'm definitely interested in seeing what happens next in this story, especially given the last few pages here, and the questions that they raise. The artwork is beautiful as well, so that's yet another thing to look forward to here in the next installment. Read Full Review

    So far, "One Moment in Time" has surpassed expectations with Quesada sticking to strong character work and Rivera's gorgeous pages. The explanation for Mary Jane and Peter never marrying but remaining a couple is a serviceable one and plays rather well thanks to the raw emotion on the page. It should be interesting to see how the next two issues explain the events surrounding "One More Day." Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Aug 4, 2010

    In terms of visuals, this issue is also an improvement on Paolo Rivera's end. Rivera's work is allowed more freedom and room to breathe now that it doesn't have to share page space with Paul Ryan's panels. Rivera is given some very emotional scenes to work with, and he captures that emotion well. Quesada's framing art, on the other hand, still suffers from overly soft and extremely inconsistent character renderings. Ultimately, this arc succeeds as OMD damage control, but not quite so much as a simple, engaging story. Read Full Review

    I don't like the general premise of this story-arc and think it is unnecessary, but I do think I understand where they are going and it opens some interesting possibilities. Read Full Review
