We get another masterful volume where we see a new class of freshmen come into the school and try to find their place as well as themselves. We also see the previous class back at the school jockeying for power and trying to cope with the events of their finals the previous year! The writing for t more

Immonen and Slott work well together and the story flows with good developments. Camuncoli's story with Slott is also good and very promising. But the rest is filler. This is not going to help this book get any new readers.

After reading #17 I really wasn't all that interested in the telling of how Matt was able to get his secret identity back but #18 has changed that. Soule was able to craft a wonderfully told chapter here with great pacing and insight into Matt's mind!

The main story here is pretty decent as we see Spider-Man try to track down Norman Osborn as well as deal with some of the lingering fall out of the Clone event. Its written a bit choppy with everything Slott is trying to set up for the next arc but overall it works well. The art is fantastic as always in this issue. But the back ups are pointless (except for the last one) and not needed at all. T more

I would have been much happier without all those backup issues (except for the final one), thus having a smaller price (10 bucks for an issue? I can buy a trade containing the whole arc for that). The main story was decent, might be better than some of the previous ones. Don't really care about Immonen coming to this book as I don't find his art anything that special.

This is a strong example of how to do a first issue. The charcters are instantly complex and sympathetic, the world is creative, and the plot is exciting. Not to mention the detailed artwork.

Another comparison between Hero and Villain. It was done Before and in better ways. Why we cannot see something interesting like Catwoman saving the hostages. But no we just have Bane beating Batman. It's not interesting fight scene either. Only good part was the artwork, which is bizarre because I really dislike his artstyle.

I may be a little biased since I'm a massive fan of Rick Remender's writing (Deadly Class is my favorite comic). But Seven to Eternity is a fantasy masterpiece!
