The reasoning was nearly universally panned by critics at the time, even though in my opinion, this post OMD-era has been nothing short of fantastic.
Remember the Spider-Man daily comic strip? Well, it’s still running in many newspapers and on December 31st, readers saw this:

Now I don’t read the strip, mostly because our paper doesn’t carry it and it never comes to mind. However, this is interesting and a further attempt to try to make everything as streamlined as possible. Now if only that long-discussed Spider-Man comic strip compilation book would come out, we could all catch up!
