It's not refreshing at all, it's just stale

Articlesbase features an item where the writer asks if Brand New Day is refreshing, and at the end of the segment, that's when it really crashes:
Still, the story made the Spider-Man comics more interesting. Green Goblin's son Harry is brought back to life. Peter Parker's identity is safe. A redheaded superheroine named Jackpot may or may not be Mary Jane Watson. Despite fan criticism, the Faustian pact made Spider-Man a more readable book. But will the ends justify the means? Only time – and a lot of spider-webs – will tell.
Time has already told about this very article: it's just one more godawful, sugarcoated form of defeatism. I guess that's one columnist there who doesn't think making deals with the devil is such a bad thing.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
