So after letting it sit for a few days, I must say that I actually enjoyed the first issue of Brand New Day. I picked the issue up as a fan of the character and the fact that I enjoy both Slott's and McNiven's previous work, and they didn't disappoint here. Slott was almost taylor fitted for writing Spider-Man. Although I was (and still am) annoyed with how they handled the change, it was enjoyable reading about a Peter Parker, who acted more like a young/mid twenty year old rather than a married man. Will see where this takes us, i'm on board for now.
