    As a bookend to one emotional era of Peter Parker's life, OMIT is fairly successful in what it sets out to do. And yet, the arc failed to answer all the lingering questions surrounding current Spidey continuity. I'm fully content to put all this business behind me and get back to what Spidey does best. Hopefully the series will oblige as "Origin of the Species" debuts. Read Full Review

    There's a symmetry to how "One Moment in Time" ends after it began by using and adding to "Amazing Spider-Man" annual #19 with this issue rewriting scenes from "Amazing Spider-Man" #545, the finale of "One More Day." Joe Quesada shows off a bit with dialogue that uses the same phrasing with small changes and it's effective enough, though lacking in an organic flow at times. "One Moment in Time" does answer all of the questions it promised to address and Paolo Rivera's art has been fantastic throughout. Still, in the end, the story can't help but feel like it exists just to answer questions that didn't necessarily need to be asked ever again. Nothing presented here makes the Spider-Man universe a more interesting place. Read Full Review

    While I came into this arc with high expectations and while I enjoyed every issue before this I cant help but tell you that the end really lets what came before deflate into something a little lesser than what it could have been. A valiant try, to be sure, but when theres that much vitriol and baggage pushing down from the real world, it doesnt take much to send the cart careening off the edge. That said, the subsequent issue thats also on the stands this week? Is phenomenal, and quite the work of fiction. Just goes to show you, that no matter how hard reality tries, it cant forever take the power away from worlds of pure imagination. Read Full Review

    In closing this has been what feels like a waste of time. Thankfully this is all hopefully behind us for the time being and we can get on to the good Spider-Man stories that the readers have been clamoring for over the course of the past few months. Maybe if I am feeling really masochistic this weekend I will sit down with both "One More Day" and "One Moment In Time" and read them as a whole to try to make more sense out of this.

    This was just a shit story arc. But, it is over and we have a new direction. Hopefully Dan Slott will write an awesome first story arc and make me forget OMIT. Read Full Review
