    This final issue masterfully builds to a conclusion which feels inevitable and devastating all at once. I haven't been so moved by a comic in a very long time. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Jun 19, 2019

    McGuires work here feels a bit stifled by the massive superstructure of the Age of X-Man event. In Spider-Gwen: Ghost Spider shes got much more leeway to do whatever the hell she wants...a situation which allows her to develop nuanced humor and drama in very clever ways. Shes easily one of the best writers working for Marvel right now. Its too bad that she had to be hampered by the event that this series is a part of. McGuire could be great with Nightcrawler if she was given just a bit more room to develop her own story. Read Full Review

    Well the issue wasn't worse in the run, but didn't redeem itself by the end. I will say this, the art always did it's job! I was impressed and enjoyed each panel. However, this issue had some parts that felt rushed and other things felt like we are just repeating ourselves. The ending was okay, it was just how they got there with the dialogue was my biggest issue. Read Full Review
