The next stage in Spidey's history starts here, True Believer. When the cocoon bursts, what comes out might surprise you. And just who is "The Other?"

    Its nice that some point to this mess has finally emerged, but the crossover has hardly improved as a result. The writing has a clumsy pace as Straczynski desperately tries to make up for time wasted following dead-end plot points concerning Morlun and That Robot Guy, and the new ideas introduced arent particularly compelling. This man or monster thing is better suited to Wolverine or the Hulk than Spider-Man, and furthermore Straczynski and his colleagues have so far failed to make this iteration of the concept stand out from the other times it has been applied to this character (including by JMS himself). All in all, this issue comes across as a last grab for interest and relevance in a painfully superficial storyline. Couldnt they have just given Spidey a new costume and a couple of new powers without dragging us through all this bilge? Read Full Review
