    Probably the best thing about Slott's run on this volume of The Amazing Spider-Man, and something that can't be denied, is his respect for the character. Slott values Spider-Man, and it shows. There are absolutes for the character " heroism, selflessness, and that sharp tongue " and Slott's conclusion for the Spider-Verse arc puts those characteristics at the forefront as the Spiders head into their next adventure.

    Comicosity - Aaron Long Feb 25, 2015

    Amazing Spider-Man #15 provides a solid conclusion to the Spider-Verse event and acts as a nice launching pad for several series and the next arc of ASM. Slott weaves in some strong action to balance the good-byes and plants seeds for some interesting storylines down the road. Camuncoli's work is rock solid and he handles the multi-Spider action very nicely, rounding out the issue with some classic Spidey shots. Amazing Spider-Man is firing on all cylinders and this is a must-read for anyone who has enjoyed the crazy antics of Spider-Verse. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Corey 'Undeadpool' Schroeder Feb 25, 2015

    A very fun end to what has been a rather grim event. Slott even brings up a few head-scratchers left from Spider-Verse, most notably that Karn was rather quickly forgiven despite his murder of literally hundreds of people both innocent and heroic. Minor complaints pop up, but ultimately solid, satisfying endings are so rare in comics, both mainstream and otherwise, that it feels like a victory anytime there is one, and thats what this feels like: a great ending to a better-than-average (or better than it had any right to be) event.

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Danny Wall Feb 28, 2015

    It's a pretty satisfying epilogue as many of the story beats get to follow a natural pace as they play out, and the only one that doesn't really is the one I wish we could have gotten more of -- the Spider-Man/Superior confrontation. Still, it's an epilogue that has to follow up on some of the unsatisfying moments of the storyline overall, while not offering us any true answers to the Inheritors game plan all along. That, and some simply average-to-poor art continues to prove that this event ended with more of a long sigh than a burst of freshness. Read Full Review

    Spider-Man UK and Anya's fate is an interesting concept. Multi-dimensional Spider-Warriors helping all Spiders in need out is really awesome, but it only means the Spider-Verse event is not really over yet. It's only a matter of time we're going to see more troubles involving different Spiders, and these two will be right around the corner to help. Now the Spider-Verse event is really, REALLY over, I can't wait to see what's coming up next. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - F.D. White Feb 27, 2015

    Slott does a good job of covering most of his bases to make everything make sense in world. Something that might have slipped out of control with a lesser writer. With Camuncoli backing him up, they deliver a solid ending to a very fun event that will go down as one of the better Spider-Man tales in recent memory. Read Full Review

    A good ending to the Spider-Verse event. Slott continues to prove he's the best at writing Spider-Man events Read Full Review

    ComicBuzz - ChrisG Mar 9, 2015

    The end of the issue hints at maybe a slightly quieter time for Spidey, where he foils a mugging upon returning to earth 616. To him, there is no Small Stuff and Slott continues to show Spider-Man as the hero who will always stand up no matter how big or small the problem. While it was great to see every Spider-Man ever, it will be nice to see Spidey swinging through Manhattan once again. Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - Harrison Rawdin Feb 26, 2015

    Amazing Spider-Man #15 may not deliver every thing fans want but for what we're given there's plenty to enjoy. The team wraps up an event that was fun, engaging and worthy of investment. For that reason this release earns the right to come recommended. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Richard Gray Feb 26, 2015

    As controversial as Dan Slott's choices have been over the last few years, The Amazing Spider-Man has been given a new lease on life following Superior Spider-Man and the "Spider-Verse" arc. Which is why this issue, effectively an epilogue to the "Spider-Verse" event with everybody saying goodbye and setting up their new jobs, is something of an anti-climax. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Feb 25, 2015

    Spider-Verse has been a great event comic over all, but some of the structural choices have really come back to bite Amazing Spider-Man in the butt. Issue #14 was the official conclusion to Spider-Verse. Unfortunately, its heavy emphasis on action prevented any real resolution to the story. Thus, it falls on Amazing Spider-Man #15's epilogue story to wrap up all loose threads and give this event the proper conclusion it needed. If only it were a little more successful in that regard.

    Nerds Unchained - Jeremy Radick Feb 25, 2015

    All in all, the issue was enjoyable enough, and it did its job, but it never really rises above accomplishing its goals to becoming fully satisfying. Read Full Review

    Superior Spider-Talk - Dan Gvozden Feb 25, 2015

    "Spider-Verse" comes to a less than satisfying conclusion with all of the Spider-Man universe's chess pieces essentially reset. This final issue is a bit too obsessed with advertising other titles and reestablishing the status quo to tell an emotionally satisfying tale but the quieter nature of the ending does allow for a few character moments to sneak in.

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Feb 28, 2015

    I enjoyed Spider-Verse on the whole. It was a lot of fun. But Slott missed a chance with this issue to really underline the whole event and provide some great character development or some solid character interactions. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Feb 25, 2015

    A good issue as far as wrapping up loose ends and setting up a few character stories, but ultimately feels wasted due to characters serving the plot for plot's sake. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza Feb 26, 2015

    "Amazing Spider-Man" #15 closes the door on "Spider-Verse" as Slott and company look toward the future with Peter Parker clearly in control of his own destiny. There are plenty of threads to pick up but, for the first time in what feels like years, Slott will be able to tell a Spider-Man tale that doesn't revolve around Otto Octavius or build towards a universe-spanning event. For now, "Amazing Spider-Man" #15 is the first inhale for that breath of fresh air. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Jeremy Matcho Feb 25, 2015

    Amazing Spider-Man has been decent under Slott's pen, but as a whole this was a fun event. Slott showed that he can do some wonderful things with many characters and has the chops to write them well. The art team knocked it out of the park this issue and really captured the mood of the various endings. Happy and sad collided here, and Camuncoli and Ponsor captured it perfectly. Read Full Review

    With so many ideas in play, it's no surprise that we needed an epilogue to tie up loose ends. It's just too bad we couldn't get a better one. Read Full Review
