I didn't buy 546, but a buddy of mine owns a comicbook store, he lets me read in advance certain issues before i actually buy them. I read BND, and i dunno what everybody is gushing about "great art"? Ok, Mcniven's art is passable, but his renditions of Peter and practicaly evrybody all look like dolls. i mean, the eyes look so, ummm, i can't describe it. The art from the preview pages looked awesome, to be fair. But when i saw the entire issue, forget about it. It got old real fast. That whoelscene when Peter refused to change into spidey just so the Bugle will not sell??? Errr...he thinks waaaaayyy too much of himself. And, actually not changing to spidey???? Errrr, sense of responsibility? If he didn't want JJJ to make money of him, then just do not take picture of yourself and sell to the Bugle. Really, there are less complicated ways in doing things. It was an absurd issue, and it insults its readers if they think that just by littering the issue with sexy chick is enough to make it sell. I find it funny that there are actually guys here that think that Peter married to MJ is "unrealistic" because supposedly she is a model. Well??? All girls in that issue look like models. And a girl actually makes out with Peter just to be in the "click"? What? Absurd!!!

Actually, Spidey's effects on the Bugle's sales has been mentioned many times throughout years past.

>And, actually not changing to spidey???? Errrr, sense of responsibility? If he didn't want JJJ to make money of him, then just do not take picture of yourself and sell to the Bugle.

I didn't feel insulted, nor did I feel that it was littered with with sexy chicks. It set up Harry as a character and set a tone for the environment that Peter is in.

>I find it funny that there are actually guys here that think that Peter married to MJ is "unrealistic" because supposedly she is a model. Well??? All girls in that issue look like models. And a girl actually makes out with Peter just to be in the "click"? What? Absurd!!!

Again, her motivations seemed pretty believable to me. Metropolitan nightlife and a young, attractive woman wanting to get into a click, behaving in a manner to get attention or become part of a crowd. I lived in NYC for 4 years and saw that behavior on occassion by members of both genders.

My only gripe with the issue was that I was struck a few times by some statements made from characters that struck me as swiped from back issues. It actually distracted me from the story. I can live with it, since mischaracterizations and character interactions have been much worse and much more often over the past decade.

I'm looking forward to the next issue.
