    Again a nice beginning to the story. I think what will really make or break this series is how they end it. I'm assuming it ends with Peter being the true clone as that's what Marvel intended to do back then, but who knows? I recommend this one if you're a Spidey fan, but only if you're an older fan who was around back then and enjoyed at least some of the Clone Saga. Read Full Review

    Spider-Man: The Clone Saga is an interesting little experiment that should no doubt make good on its promise to retell the Clone Saga in a less ridiculous fashion. But given its throwback feel and not entirely new reader-friendly premise, I'm not sure this series will appeal to anyone but die-hard '90s fans. Read Full Review

    It's a remake of an infamous storyline from the 90's at a $3.99 pricepoint. That's probably quite off putting for most people, but, if you have the extra cash on hand, it's not nearly as bad as most would expect and, my love of the Clone Saga aside, this is actually a very solid, well put together opening issue.

    Six issues of this story may be too much for some, but this issue suggests that they may not be enough to allow this story to be told at a smoother pace. This issue feels like the story is on fast-forward as Mackie and DeFalco try to cram it all in. Ironically, the first Spider-Clone Saga went too long and "Spider-Man: The Clone Saga" looks like it will be too short. Read Full Review
