    I like Spencer, but even I have to admit, that he has problems with decompression. We are getting not only standard issues, but even LR ones. I can't imagine what it would be like, if all of this story would play in regular ASM.

    I do still wonder if OMD will get acknowledged / Reversed etc. I hope it's not going to be just a reference here and there. I can't see myself reading the title after such teasing. I would feel like a fool for believing in Spencer.

    Hope that's not the case.

    As far as your thoughts on OMD go, I agree. I donít think ďLast RemainsĒ will undo it but rather just make Peter aware of it.....hopefully. One thing that has been on my mind lately is, if OMD is addressed which it seems like it is then the marriage has to be addressed as well. If thatís the case, then what ďlogicalĒ reason is there be for Peter/MJ to not just get married again?

I canít believe how quickly my excitement for this arc as disappeared. Maybe Spencer does read better in trade because this is just too slow.

    Why hype up the issue and falsely advertise this issue as this brutal fight?

    Anyway I know some people are going to claim this is great epic writing. If you enjoy it, Iím glad. Just not my cup of tea. This entire Kindred situation has dragged on way too long.

    Bagley was great but that goes without saying. Iím really hoping we get some type of answers next issue and this arc at least wraps up nicely.
    Agree. I'm losing it fast for this story. I read this in 5 minutes and hte last issue in 5 minutes. C'mon. To revisit OMD and not nail the execution thus far is a big big miss. Spencer has to nail the rest of this. I have faith!

What also pisses me off is had Slott written this issue, everyone and their mother would be complaining that Slott sucks and he would receive death threats. But for whatever reason people here still go on with that weirdness that Spencer is "god" or whatever and that adds to annoyance level of having to read these issues.
    I've been disappointed overall with Spender's run. I agree with everything you're saying. For me, Last Remains is certainly more interesting because of the OMD stuff but if you take OMD off the table, Last Remains is the conclusion to this 2+ year-50-ssue-$200+ investment to this point in Spencer's time with ASM. Nail it Spencer. C'mon...

    I never thought I'd compare Spencer to Bendis in terms of his arcs reading much better together than issue-by-issue.

    Even Bendis had cool stuff happening in each issue even if it was decompressed. This was just boring with stuff we already knew.

    I hope you’re this sacrificing with your own kids then.

    Spencer's issues can be dense and deep. Like the finale of SINS RISING, ASM#850 and 851 were dense as hell.

    Then he just decompresses like this, and it's bizarre.

    As for OMD and so on...I don't see Spencer doing that all at a go. He wants to drag out the drama and emotions. So it could be having Peter remember the marriage and deal, coping with the fallout from that, and based on who else remembers the earlier world and reality and so on, that might set the ball rolling.

    The main thing I liked about the flashback and Bagley's art is that it's basically mocking and insulting the original and expresses subjectively how readers felt about that and contrasting that against the intended meaning at the time.

    I'll give you that; it was pretty interesting to see the story play out pretty much the same but now it's a hell for Peter, not a haven.

    So it's pretty clear they're not reversing OMD, but if they at least make Peter responsible for it, even this padding will be worth it.

    I’m wondering how this story will read once it’s all out in one sitting? Right now decompressing is definitely hurting it but I felt that Hunted was average. Then I re read it all in one sitting and ended up really liking it.

    Yeah him and Mj accepted it so they need to learn the errors of their ways
