Yeah, that was where my concern came from --- though I think JR may have realised that with three times the amount of Amazing coming out, that's way more arcs and thus way more to cover in the Year end review.
Yeah -- it's funny, when Back in Black was in progress I thought it was a cool and logical progression from War at Home -- now I realise it was just a long disingenous lead-in to One More Day.

They're basically saying "Our comics were better than your comics and you don't even know our comics because you never read them, so suck our balls!"
Which is horseshit because who the hell does Marvel think's been reading all these trade paperbacks and Essentials volumes?
This whole attitude really bothers me. I don't like being spoken to like I'm some idiot and that I should shut up because "Marvel" knows better. That doesn't help me get on board with the new direction.
Now, having Stan Lee write the OMD afterword in such a classy fashion? That was an EXCELLENT ploy to get me on board.
But treating me like an idiot? No. Stan NEVER did that. I'm always amazed because I'm convinced that one of the elements that made Marvel popular in the first place was stuff like the Bullpen where the writers DIDN'T talk down to the readers, treated us as equals, wrote the stories in a way that respected intelligence, and were NICE -- they seemed to LIKE us, so we LIKED them!
Stan often said he didn't write the stories for kids, but also not for adults -- he simply wrote stories he thought would be fun to read.
Now we have all this high-horse BS guys like Quesada, Millar, and Bendis who basically dictate to us what we should like, what Marvel should be, and why, as if only THEY are true comics fans and must lecture us on it (I actually am totally getting that vibe from these interviews they've been putting at the backs of the issues lately -- anyone else noticed them?), like "the books have sucked until now CAUSE X and you've been stupid for liking them because Y"
Which, like JR points out, is ludicrous because it's not like we had a staff change -- these are the guys who've been minding the store for seven years or so!
So, what am I supposed to believe? That they wrote all those suposedly crappy stories on purpose knowing they were crappy, and then knowingly suckered us into buying them and promoted them despite knowing they were crappy and then blaming us for liking them? And NOW they'll write the good ones??
