There isn't much else to talk about. Everything that happens now is a direct result of it and it doesn't seem like the current stories are exciting enough to keep any threads going. The most exciting thing that has happened seems to have been the Thunderbolts showing up and that has nothing to do with the new direction.

Pete is such a douche bag sometimes. It's been pointed out to me before and I didn't see it because Spidey was my first comic, but Pete really does act like a spazzed out flake sometimes. The issue with the Kingpin was great because what he was saying was mostly true. Pete is a chump.

I'm thinking Mephisto helped things along somehow. He doesn't have the powers to mindwipe the world so this only made sense. Maybe he nudged the Sentry into doing it for him. Of course I doubt the Sentry erased the marriage/baby and resurrected Harry.
| > It's great that fans still feel strongly about Spider-Man and OMD/BND one year on, but I think that the comments have gone from outrage and disbelief to general bitching about any move that Marvel and Joey Q make.|
I haven't seen anything other than complaining about the OMD decision. It's no different than when people complained about the Sins Past stuff. We got through that though because other stories caught our interest. I'm not seeing many posts about Amazing other than arguments over sales.

I highly doubt that it's "done" by a long shot. They know how much hype revisiting this subject will be in a years. Wait and see. At any rate, I'm not reading anymore anyway. At one time this would have been bad because Spiderman was the only character I read. I've gotten into other books now though so it's not a big deal. For long time readers, I would encourage you to try other titles. There are good ones out there.
