      Where did you get this from. Please explain. I am curious. I thought OMIT was the end of the BND era (and everything thereafter was the new status quo).

    THE STORY:
    This is it! After 101 issues, the writing team of Spidey Web-Heads says good-bye as the historic era known as BRAND NEW DAY comes to an end in a triple-sized SPECTACULAR! Over the past three years, he's faced New Ways to Die, a Gauntlet, and a Grim Hunt, and, through it all, Spider-Man has stood stronger than ever. But while recent events may have drastically changed Peter and his friends, the ol' Parker luck threatens a turn for the even-worse at any second. One thing�s for certain though, the sun is setting on the Wall-Crawler's Brand New Day, and tomorrow begins right here! Rated A �$4.99

    The latest issue reconfirmed this in the letters page.
    Issue 648 is to be the beginning of the "Big Time" era.


Thanks. Although that really does not make sense to me. BND = new status quo for me, so I don't know what they mean aside from calling it something different just to end an era that many disliked (although really not changing anything).
