An enjoyable final issue that is somewhat undone by the simple fact that I've already read the original stories that this miniseries has drawn so heavily upon, so this is pretty much a simple character study, where Peter looks back nostalgically on better days. Now the book did a solid job capturing the feeling of this period in Spider-Man's history, and it also acts as a nice reminder of the key role Gwen Stacy played in Peter's world. There's also a great scene in the final pages of this issue as Mary Jane looks in on Peter as he's recording his message to Gwen, and we see MJ clearly recognizes that Gwen still plays a role in Peter's life. However, when all is said and done I have to say that I am a little disappointed that this miniseries was so dependent on previously existing stories, as no matter how well crafted the material is, there is a very real sense that Jeph Loeb is merely echoing the work of Stan Lee, rather than delivering his own material.
