    I had a good time reading this issue. It was fun, fast paced, and took me back to a time long ago. We even get a giant robot, and who doesn't like giant robots? Now that the first year has wrapped I'll have to make sure I renew my subscription toRenew Your Vows because there is no way I am going to miss out on what comes next. Read Full Review

    As a final send off issue from the original creative team, this was a very heart warming and a touching conclusion. You don't get many happy ending stories like this, so this was a special one. With this final arc, the book focus seems to shift from a Spider family centric book to more about their daughter and I'm sure we'll get to see more of it with the new creative team of Jody Houser and Nick Roche. The art was a bit of a downer for me coming from Level's previous issue, but Aburtov's colours make it all better. This was a proper love letter ending to the full year we've received of Renew Your Vows and I'm all in for teenager Spiderling and her adventures. Read Full Review

    The Amazing Spider-Man: Renew Your Vows #12 is a nice story touching upon a different side of the Spider/Goblin dynamic, even if it feels similar to stories already told in the Spider mythos. Read Full Review

    This issue reads like it was intended to be the final Renew Your Vows story, since it goes out of its way to wrap up the lingering plotlines of the series. Read Full Review

    Well that was very good. I expected a bad reading so I'm very please. There is many surprise, there is some awesome moment.
    The art is very strong & there is some stupide Green Goblin Giant Robot, so trust me, that was hard to sell.
    I loved to see the X-men going for help (And losing ^^) ... Maybe the part about the Symbiot suit is a little easy.
    I'm not chocked by the eight year gap. I will have pleasure to follow this ongoing once more (I have to put it back on my sollicitation list).
    Maybe now she is more grown up there will be some difficulty to make thing different that with Spider-Girl. But I have hope.

    I would love to see a crossover between May & Annie ! ^^
    This spider-man is the one I love ! Fuck more

    Many have said that the story was rushed and I strongly disagree. The ONLY thing that I thought was rushed was how the symbiote was destroyed.

    Quite a good ending for the first part of the series (the combined Conway's and Stegman's run). No plot holes have been left and it could easily be seen as a 12 issue maxi-series. Not too sure if I am too excited about the time skip, but we will see.

    A pretty strong close to the first chapter of this title that I'm honestly surprised is still around. All previous elements were brought back in to play a role, whether they fit into the story naturally or not. It will be interesting what effect this has on Normie when we catch up to everyone eight years later.

    The day gets saved and Normie Osborn is redeemed mainly via the power of friendship. While the conclusion is satisfying, both the words and visuals are mighty simplistic and it's really only the continued commitment to developing the characters well that pulls this above average. Throwing in a last-minute age-up also guarantees that future arcs will have a different tone than these first 12 issues. Considering how great these stories have been (particularly at the start), messing with the formula so dramatically seems unwise.

    Kind of ended with a thud. The X-men show up for no reason other than a fan service cameo and the mecha-goblin thing was designed like a bad Megazord from Power Rangers. If it wasn't for the intriguing premise of the next story arc fast-forward 8 years, I would honestly drop this title from my pull. It's not a terrible title but I can definitely live without it.

    Rushed plots and wasted potential. its clear Marvel expected RYV to tank and when it didn't they started meddling. Now everything different about the series is being swept aside to make the book another Spider-girl book.
