    All-Comic - Milo Milton Jefferies Mar 24, 2017

    The overall plot was unfortunately fairly by the numbers and ultimately the weakest part of the storyline, but for the most part Spider-Gwen #18 really shined when it focused on the characters and the dialogue. It will no doubt be interesting to see where both Miles and Gwen go from here after the event in their own respective series and how closely theyll interact going forward, but for now the conclusion to this crossover was a positive one that made the most out of its characters.

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Mar 27, 2017

    This was a fairly satisfying conclusion that left the door open to more crossovers down the road. The writing for this issue was solid and the pacing felt very on point. I've never been a fan of the way  Rodriguez draws faces, particularly Gwen's, but the art was solid in other areas and the colors were as good as they always have been for this book. Obviously if your new to Spider-Gwen this may not be the best jumping on point. However if you've been on board since the start of this arc then I think you will be satisfied with its conclusion.

    Nerdophiles - New Author Mar 29, 2017

    Though the beginning of the issue took the reader on an interesting detour to Earth-8 and introduced Peter Porker (pun intended, I'm sure), I was initially a bit skeptical. However, the writers were able to tie the characters of Earth-8 together with Earth-65. Plus, the fact that there is a future that ultimately ends with Gwen and Miles getting a happily ever after makes me pretty happy. Read Full Review

    Superior Spider-Talk - Eric Wilson Mar 27, 2017

    "Sitting in a Tree" is a very uneven story as a whole, but its final issue is loads of fun. Had more of the crossover dealt with the themes and ideas presented here, it would have been a much more satisfying read. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Jordan Calhoun Mar 23, 2017

    Overall, this crossover event happened, and that's nearly as much as there is to say. Seeing Miles and Gwen's cross-dimensional future, coupled with a Spider-Ham's suggestion that their universes seem to be years behind his where Gwen and Miles are happily married, offers the question of determinism and adds a bit of charm to Gwen and Miles' decision to be "just friends." Now that the obligatory pairing is over with we can expect Radioactive Spider-Gwen to go back to its regularly scheduled drama, which is something we can all look forward to. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Kat Calamia Mar 28, 2017

    Spider-Gwen #18 is a disappointing conclusion to the much-hyped romantic story arc between Gwen Stacy and Miles Morales. With little added to the scant fireworks from the first issue of the arc, this crossover sadly feels like a cash-grab because of the forced romantic plot between the two popular Spider-heroes, rather than playing up the organic and engaging friendship between these two popular characters.
