    The bottom line here is that this story is so polarizing that you will know what you think of it before you read it. You either want this or you don't. The Final Score here in this case reflects my general hatred of what's being done while acknowledging the overall skill with which it's being executed. Take my word for it - this was a weird review to write. Read Full Review

    In many ways, this story is starting to remind me of that other much-maligned story from JMS' run, "Sins Past". Like "Sins Past", "One More Day" isn't badly written, and the artwork is solid, serving the story well. However, it's built around an idea which is so ill-conceived and badly plotted that even a talented writer like Straczynski can't polish it into something that feels like it makes sense as a story. It reeks of the substitution of editorial imperatives for logical, organic storytelling, and it's that approach to the character which has run Spider-Man into the ground so consistently over the last few years. If Marvel would prefer to think that all of Spidey's problems can be solved by erasing his marriage, I guess that's what they're going to go ahead and do. The best that I can hope for is that "One More Day" clears the slate for a fresh new wave of talent to actually take the character somewhere interesting once Amazing Spider-Man relaunches as a thrice-monthly title next y Read Full Review
