Format: Paperback
Many strong things have been said about this volume and sxpecifically, it's ending, so here's my take...
While the end result is an unbelievable let down and slap in the face, the writing itself is not as bad as it seems. Now let me qualify that. I hate what Joe Quesada made happen, but JMS did all he could with it and there are some beautiful emotional touches. Had the ending changed and Aunt May had died, believe me, you would be reading some totally different reviews.
Even before that doomed segment of the story, the rest of the volume is not bad. No it does not reach the heights of volumes 1 and 2, but it's better than volume 4 in that it's much less of a mess.
My final thoughts? I have two.
1. We can only imagine what the end result would have been like if JMS was left completely alone to do with what he willed with no interferance.
2. The irony of ironies is this. Joe Quesada's main argument for the whole 'Brand New Day' thing was to take Spiderman back to the essence of what he was, because he had 'drifted away' from what made him a great character. BUT the thing is, 99.9% of that 'drifting' had actually happened under Joe Quesada's watch in the first place; Becoming an avenger, the metamorphosis etc. It was a crass solution to something that HE had created!

If your an old hat to spider-mans run and missed a tome to your collection, DO NOT BUY THIS! If your a new reader and are in need to get to grips with the current status of a character you've heard so much about, DO NOT BUY THIS! (although if that really is you then read Spider-Man: Brand New Day Volume 1 TPB: Brand New Day v. 1 (Spider-Man Graphic Novels (Marvel Paperback))) If you are looking for expensive and uncomfortable toilet paper or want to read a book that fly's in the face of ethics, good taste, respect for the readers and years of built-up characterization then buy this AND THEN SERIOUSLY THINK ABOUT WHAT YOU ARE DOING WITH YOUR LIFE!

This is a must to read. Its a compilation of all the Spider-Man civil war and some of the key characters getting to gether, teaming up and swapping tech.

If you want a quick injection of Spider-Man and a light dose of the avengers then this is the graphics novel for you.

J. Michael Stracynski's run ends on a horrible note 14 Jan. 2011
By Dylan Luciano - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I have read all of the trades of this book which are Road to Civil War, Spider-Man: Civil War, Back in Black (I think its own the main trade of Black in Back though) and One More Day. But before I review each of the stories I will talk about the quality of the book itself. The collection of J. Michael Strazynski's run in this binding is just as good as the other collections and it's good to see Marvel didn't skip out on the quality of the paper.

The story opens with Spider-Man wearing Tony Stark's new costume designed for him and fighting crime in it. The stories here aren't bad or anything but they don't leave much of a impression. Having Spider-Man fighting crime is okay but a whole story shouldn't be based around that.

The second story is the interesting Spider-Man: Civil War tie in that has great art but also shows the conflict that Peter has to go through. Doing what he knows is right, or letting down Tony Stark who he looks up too as a father (I know that Peter was thankful to Stark but I'm hoping his relationship with him was developed more in previous volumes) Not to mention it's ending makes you want to pick up the next trade.

After that we have Back in Black which is a very dark story line showing how angry, dark and brutal Peter can get. The Kingpin is drawn to be incredibly smug and sinister and the reader knows that it's building up to a great fight. While it is a solid story, it's somewhat pointless thanks to the next story and plenty of darker and better stories have been told (The best one being Born Again)

The volume ends sadly on the awful note of One More Day. (Although it can be debated how much of this story was J. Michael Straczynski as much as it is Joe Quasada's) the story line is a joke and the art is godawful. It destory's Spider-Man's character and it made me completely drop the book. Heck it made me want to not read Marvel at all.

If your going to collect anything here I really only recommend the Civil War tie in and maybe Back in Black for a very dark story.

the story "One More Day" is terrible. This is the moment Spider-man stopped being interesting ... 3 Oct. 2014
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Lets keep it simple, the story "One More Day" is terrible. This is the moment Spider-man stopped being interesting to me. The hamfisted way in which the marriage of Peter Parker and Marry Jane was ended stands until this day as the worst thing in a spider-man comic ever. And yes i am counting the clone saga and chapter one. The thing is this story should not be blamed on the writer JMS. This disaster of a comic is Joe Quesda's turd. Quesada decided that the reason spider-man wasn't selling was because he was married. Never mind the fact that the comic had been in the top ten at the time and selling very well. He was a box office star and one of the hottest properties marvel had at the time. He mentioned the fact that Peter had grown older and that kept fans away from the comic. missing the fact that it was not Spider-Man's age that mattered but the quality of the stories. So Joe gave us the event no one wanted One More Day. JMS did not write the last parts of the story it was ghost written by editorial (Quesada) and was rejected when he offered the idea that the end of the story was not working. If you buy this book..just don't buy it its a waste of money.

Surprisingly Good 13 Aug. 2013
By Dave the Collector - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Despite all of the controversy and negativity, this book was really good. Now, the first issues I ever read by JMS were a few of the ASM Civil War issues way back in 2006. At the time I was obsessed with Ultimate Spider-man, and only chose picked up the issues of ASM after I heard that Peter Parker had unmasked himself for the super hero registration. And then a few months later I heard that they were doing the One More Day story line that would change the entire Spider-man universe. I thought it was pretty pointless and stupid like most other Spidey fans at the time, so I dismissed it and kept reading Ultimate Spider-man. So, years later, when I started collecting these collections I didn't expect much from this volume at all. But I was VERY wrong. This is one of the best Spider-man graphic novels that I have ever read. First, the Civil War arc was intense and beautifully written and illustrated. I love Ron Garney's art, and JMS kills with his writing, especially the dialog. First of all, I love how he wrote the Iron Man/Spider-man relationship. It's very rare in Spider-man's history that he had been taken under the wing of another hero. We always see Spider-man as a solo hero, not really the team player or the side kick. But through the relationship between Spider-man and Iron Man, we get to see a different side of Peter. He doesn't have to hold the world on his shoulders and take care of everything by himself. He has a mentor, a father figure, that can understand him, someone who Peter truly looks up to. JMS was brilliant in writing this. It was also a great story companion to the Civil War comic, because JMS went in depth with the reasons why Peter switched sides and the mistakes he made with choosing to trust Iron Man. The Back in Black story was a very emotional and dark chapter for Spider-man. The best moment of the story is when Peter faces off against the Kingpin. I was most surprised by the One More Day story which, in my opinion, was brilliant. Joe Quesada's art was just breath taking. Although the story was not the most popular in Spider-man's history it was probably the best and only way to end JMS run and save the character of Peter Parker/Spider-man. Up until the One More Day story, Peter's identity had been outed into public knowledge, he was a fugitive from the Super Hero Registration Act, he committed 9 felonies, and Aunt May was dying. If One More Day had not occurred, then subsequent issues of Spider-man would deal with former villains attacking Peter because they know his identity, the government and other registered heroes hunting him down, and eventually Peter would be locked up or dead. So, Quesada and JMS made the best choice to keep the franchise alive.

One More Day is aweful 14 April 2011
By Andrew - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I enjoyed JMS' run on Spider-Man for the most part, but One More Day is embarrassing. If anything, only buy this book to complete your collection.

See what the excitement is all about 26 April 2011
By danny boy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I had been disappointed with the odd copies of JMS Amazing Spiderman (ASM) which I had picked up from the library. The stories and artwork were not great. This comic sort of collects multiple issues of ASM into a partial coherence thus revealing that even the part plot itself is not great.

Peter is tormented by his association with Tony Stark who now leads the movement to register all Superheros. The whole comic is about his dilemma with plenty of dialogue between him and Tony, MJ and Mrs Watson. Reading all this text is like reading a book, not that the drawings are that great to provide any relief. Then of course there are his new costume changes, to provide some distraction. His new "armour" can replicate the old Spidey outfit, comes in a black version as well as shoot 3 metallic tentacles from his back. This has to be the ugliest costume design ever, next to that of the Rhino.

Its amazing that Spiderman stories could deteriorate to such a level.
