> Most comics are better judged by arcs or in sets

I agree, but my definition of a "set" or "arc" goes back to 1962. By this standard, it's hard to give a positive judgement to anything that follows OMD.

And neither were the characters! This Spider-Man/Peter Parker is lazier and more losery \(\!\) than ever before. Harry Osborn and Aunt May are both completely different characters than they were before.

Add to that the fact that ST is right--I want to follow an arc that goes from the beginning CONTINUOUSLY to the present. I don't want this "Spider--Interrupted" nonsense. The current "arc" bears NO relation to the old arc.

(If they'd ENDED the old and BEGUN the new, I could deal, just like I did back in '86 with DC.)
