    Grab yourself a bottle of Pepsi Blue and a bag of 3D Doritos and pick this book up! You're gonna love this issue as much or more than you've loved the whole series. As the saying goes "don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened". Read Full Review

    Baldeon is a powerhouse with action and emotion in this issue. The art is vibrant, beautifully detailed and visually engaging. A wonderful looking issue with things to capture your eye in every panel. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Jun 21, 2022

    This is the book for Ben Reilly fans who are mad about his hard road and fan pushback, delivering on the promise of a "lost adventure" that feels like an regular Spider-Man book from 1996 (in ways good and not so much.) Read Full Review

    Intro: Wow. This is bitter sweet. Sixth months of cherising each issue in every aspect and now we're here at the finale. These past four issues have been nothing short of perfection for me. I'll be surprised if this issue is anything but. Here we go!

    Plot/Setting: BREAKING NEWS! Major breakout at Ravencroft Institute as multiple inmates, including super-villains Mysterio and Scorpion, have been mysteriously set free and is wrecking havoc on the Institutes employees! Reports are coming in that Spider-Man is on the scene! Story is developing.

    Writing: Personally, I am very touched by the scripting and plotting that DeMatteis gives for this series. As someone who didn't grow up with the Clone Saga/Sensational Spider-Man more

    There was no reason for this mini-series to be as good as it was. What a great finale. I hope with this, Marvel can bring Ben back as himself, not as wannabe-Kaine.

    This is the best spider-book on stands! It doesn't dwell on wasting our time with filler or mystery box characters or 6 months later. It focuses Ben Reily as a character and his relationship with his clone brother Spider-cide. The art he was fluid and supported the action well. I hope we get more of these by the same creative team!

    I'm sorry, I love JMD but this ending was just terrible, it felt really cliched and predictable and the script was pretty cheesy
