    You Don't Read Comics - Brandon Masters Jul 10, 2018

    If short, this issue has Sauron, which instantly gives it a cheesy goodness that Peter David thrives on. If Spider-Mans clone fighting a were-Pterodactyl in tiny shorts isnt enough for you to at least leaf through it at the local comic shop, you just dont like comics. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Jul 17, 2018

    Most of the humor from this issue comes from Kaine's half of the story while we do see Ben make a scientific leap (relying on that old Peter Parker science knowledge, something neither clone does enough) to defeat the super-villain and begin his own investigation into the Diogenes Initiative. Worth a look. Read Full Review

    This is the comic equivalent of having sand in your eyes while a ten year old kicks you in the crotch repeatedly. It's a miserable experience. Read Full Review
