"Spider-man: One More Day" by J. Michael Stracynski is interesting to read for its audacity to rewrite years and decades of Spider-man continuity, but the author is very weak in understanding and respecting the wholesome moral character of Spider-man, the greatest comic book hero at Marvel Comics. Basically, the plot of this book is that beloved Aunt May is dying after being hit by a bullet aimed at Peter Parker, who is willing to make a deal with a devil to avoid the guilt of Aunt May dying due to Spider-man's enemies. The art is decent, though quirky, and the writing is decent and dramatic, but it is all wrong that Peter Parker and Mary Jane would choose to make such a deal, to undue a great part of their lives as never having occurred in order to change the circumstances which led to Aunt May getting hit by that bullet. This book offers an interview with the author, in the back of the book. He also discusses other story plots, such as his equally mis-characterized story of Gwen Stacy having a one-night stand with an enemy of Spider-man. This author threw away the long term moral character of Gwen Stacy in order to get a short term plot twist, which unfortunately destroys the moral character of Gwen Stacy. Whether it is Peter and M.J. cutting a deal with a devil, or Gwen Stacy giving up her virtue to an enemy, this author does not understand good morals, despite the author's ability to spin a tangled tale of surprises. Yes, these are surprises, but they do more damage to our heroes than the villains ever did. Actually, is it good writing to put in a plot twist that makes no sense and tears down decades of continuous drama? That's not good writing, its cheap, unsatisfying writing. I am glad that this author is not writing Spider-man anymore.

Before you read this, you must get Spiderman Civil War. This is JMS' last storyline. It is, also, the worst. Aunt May is dying, and Peter knows he has to do something about it because it is somehow his fault in a way...So he decides to save her. Now, the one star I gave this review is mainly because of the last issue on it. Peter devides to sell his love with Mary Jane to the devil. JMS does NOT handle this carefully. Quite the opposite, actually. He decides to make it as terrible as possible. Peter gives up his supermodel-wife for his old aunt who only has a few years of life left. After JMS really got a handle on Peter's personality, he brings this up. The Peter Stan Lee created would NEVER do some thing like this. Once you're done reading this, you will be JOYOUS JMS is leaving.

Now, most people consider this story to be the worst Spider-Man comic ever written, and I'll admit, it is really awful, but it does address some issues I've had with Spider-Man that Marvel's never acknowledged before. There's one scene in which Spidey is confronted by a little red haired girl ( later revealed to be his daughter in an alternate universe ) who accuses him of not taking any responsibility for his problems. That's exactly the issue I have with him! Despite all his talk about how " Great power means great responsibility", Spider-Man never really takes any of the fall for his actions. He still can't save his aunt, his ex- girlfriend and his best friend. If he actually took any responsibility, he would only have casual relationships like Batman so no one would get hurt. For the first time in a long time, I'm actually proud of Marvel for adressing an important issue. Unfortunately, I'm also unbeliveably disappointed in them. In this story, Aunt May has been shot and is in critical condition, so, to save her, he makes a deal with Mephisto, in exchange for his marriage to Mary Jane. That's right, Spider-Man actually made a deal with the devil ( don't say Mephisto isn't the devil, because he's good as ). Now, I don't see why a demon would want a marriage in exchange for life, but Mephisto claims that it's because their love is strongest of all ( yeah, that's why they almost divorce every five issues ). The other thing is the pure lack of reason the story displays. The best example is that everyone Spidey goes to see in the Superhero community claims that Aunt May cannot possibly be saved ( because bullet wounds are far too advanced for superpowers ). That's why this story is quite possibly the worst ever written: not because it seperates Spidey and Mary Jane ( let's face it, we were sick of them anyway ) but because it's illogical, unethical and stupid.

One More Day is the worst trash that marvel has ever created. they destroyed spider man, and betrayed everything he stood for. The new story line is horrible, and marvel should be ashamed for ever publishing this POS. Do not buy this book, not now, not ever! Do not support the new spider man story until they undo the damage this story line has done. PP+MJ 4EVER!!!!

One More Day can be an interrsting stpry, but the thing is, you have to pull ot off right. JMS and Quesada did not. And JMS is not to blame, Quesada is. Quesada heavily rewrote a havy portion of the book, because even the real writer realized what a horrible mistake this was, no joke. There are several details that, if changed, this story could have amounted to what it was supposed to have been. Instead, this is just Marvel's way of making Peter young again, because "theirs no challenge or good stories to tell in marraige!" And aside from that concept, in the book their are so many plot holes, and an INSULT to readers of comics EVERYWHERE! Quesada and all of Mavel have been writing Spiderman for the past twenty years as a teenager, although it is clear that Peter is an adult. There is nothing about growth that prevents good stories from happening, especially for a character like Spiderman. And for all it's worth, Peter is one of the most irresponsible characters in the Marvel Universe (not Ultimate, no. He IS responsible, and he is a teenager!!!) Marvel just neeeds to realize that Peter needs to mature and they can actually write him as such, otherwise, these kinds of stories will just continue to be written. There are several other Spidey comics here, like Ultimate. I know that any comic after this will continue to depict Peter as a man-child, so read tjem at your own expense

Spidey unmasked during the hero Civil War on National TV. The entire world found out Spider-man's secret identity -- Peter Parker. It put his wife in constant danger, his dear aunt shot and put unto a fatal coma, and every super villain knows him in and out his spider suit. It led to some interesting story telling. But, it had to be fixed some how. I always believed Doctor Strange would fix this mess, making the world forget Peter Parker is Spider-man. In the past J M Straczynski showed love for the good doctor. JMS wrote the best stories for The Amazing Spider-man -- better than even the legendary Stan Lee. I hate to see him leaving the book. Peter Parker makes a deal with the devil (Mephisto) to save his dying aunt. So his whole life is changed back to it was like when he was in high school. Peter no longer remembers he was married to Mary Jane Watson. He lives with his aunt. He is now broke, out of work, and struggling. Spider-man evolved through the years. Peter grew up, matured, and had the most wonderful marriage. He became an Avenger. Now, all the advances are erased and Spider-man month after month, became pretty dull. Eventually, the mess of his unmasking needed to be fixed. JMS still writes a compelling story, as he always does. The art is decent. Unfortunately, now that Spidey lives "A Brand New Day," the comic needs some one like Straczynski to return and fix the on going, three times a month, Amazing Spider-man, series. The title went down hill. Buy this book if you want to read the final JMS Spider-man story

I was constantly made depressesed by Spider-Man's unjustified and pointless suffering during and after the Civil War. It dumbfounded me when Peter litteraly allowed his relationship with M.J. to disapear to undo his past mistakes. Not only do these few issues destroy Marvel's most legendary romantic couple it goes against so many morales. You can't undo past mistakes period. But you can learn from them and sometimes even change the results if you act.

Easily one of the best Spider-Man stories I've ever read, if not the best. I strongly recommend this book for all true Spider-Man fans.

This is the book that marks the end of the marriage between Peter Parker and Mary Jane Watson. I didn't like the end of the marriage but I have to admit it's well written and the Dan Slott era has been just as entertaining as the J. Michael Straczynski era.
