So Joe Q and company are finally gonna get around to telling us "what really happened" as to why Peter and Mary Jane never did wed. Originally ASM #600 was supposed to explain things but for whatever reason, things were delayed. Quesada is once again taking charge of the writing duties. Anyone remember what happened the last time this man got involved with a Spidey story? Of course you do. 

Personally, my hopes are not pinned on a reasonable explanation and they haven't been for the last two plus years. One More Day was without question one of the worst Spider-Man stories ever created and with One Moment in Time, it's being revisited. If Joe Q couldn't come up with a good way to split them apart, why on Earth should we expect him to come up with a plausible story telling us just why they didn't tie the knot? I think Joey is a decent artist (I prefer his earlier work) but he should leave the writing duties to others.

At least you gotta admit; this is one cool cover, with a great Spidey suit :D

This already has made for trade paperback and wrangling in Stan or even Tom DeFalco to have to write some Forward for it. Poor guys.

Yeah, the cover is nice. I like the Black Suit tux. Pretty cool.

Stan and Tom got stuck with that? Yeesh. Tom hasn't come out and said it directly, but its been implied that he, Ron Frenz and Sal Buscema think Joe Q really screwed up.
