A Fan's Opion of BND 7 Month's After

I was browsing the Crawl Space Message boards when I came across a thread that linked to an interesting editorial. It's pretty much more of the same from a fan who doesn't like the new direction, but I I enjoyed reading it. While I don't think it really matters how long you've been reading Spidey as to whether your opinion is valid or not, I do think it's worth stating that this guy has been reading Spidey for a long time, Amazing Spidey more than anything. Yeah, he's up there in age, but he's also a huge fan, one of the many Marvel has turned away. The longtime fans is where a good chunk of the green comes from when it comes to comics. How long will it take Marvel to realize that it isn't a good idea to bite the hand that feeds them?

I'm still trying to figure out the market mechanics of this when they're constantly pissing off the fans, and fairly blatantly sometimes.

I've found it weird how the battle between the fans and editorial has seeped its way into the comics, especially with that last page with Mary Jane's return some issues ago.

Very strange how things are these days.
