Yeah, I see what you're saying and I do agree to an extent, but I'm unsure of how Bendis could have kept that mood without it going stale very quickly. But, like you said, Bendis is writing and not me.
I just feel that there was no need to prolong Peter's grieving period, and it would have seemed abrupt anyway when a more light hearted story came along. I dunno. I'm just not as annoyed at its timing as you guys are. Still don't like the body swap thing, though. This story's a lot of fun, but I can't see it being a contribution to the series in the long term.
