    It's still not entirely clear why this story is necessary, but Quesada and Rivera are certainly making it an interesting read. This issue sags more than the previous two, because the idea of a loved one of Spider-Man being targeted once he reveals his identity has been so built up and discussed that actually seeing it happen is tedious. And, there's an element of this story that simply feels like Quesada is checking off the boxes of plot points instigated by "One More Day." The identity becomes secret again, and Mary Jane and Peter break up? Check back next issue. Read Full Review

    The first issue was really interesting, the second one less so, and the third chapter here is just downright disappointing. I hope that Quesada can pull things together for the final chapter, because at this point I can't imagine being that surprsied or entertained by where he seems to be directing the storyline and the resolution. This arc doesn't feel like it was three years in the making, and if anything the wait for this storyline and the answers it promised just makes it all the more unsatisfying and disappointing.

    Honestly, this was a waste of an issue outside of the Kingpin and Dr. Strange. The rest was a mere re-threading of what has come before. My concern now is how are Joe Q & company going to wrap this up into a cohesive tale with one issue left? I dont think that there is ample time to answer the questions that need to be answered. Perhaps the final issue will be a straight to the point affair but judging by the previous issues that doesnt seem plausible. Just get this over with, hope it is in someway salvageable, and get Dan Slott on ASAP! Read Full Review

    Who is supervising Joe Quesada? This arc should have never gotten off the drawing board. OMIT is a big turd so far and that's a shame considering that ASM had been good/great for ~40 issues beforehand. Read Full Review
