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!!!

Maybe that also explains the deal with Mephisto. He had a grudge against Quesada and thought this would be the best way to get people to quit buying his comics.
