It's the moment you never thought you'd see, True Believer! Pushed to the brink of death at the hands of Morlun, Spider-Man finds himself poised at the final precipice. Worse, his fate is out of his hands.

    This issue isnt a bad read, but its a continuation of an overlong story which is only just beginning to go somewhere and has suffered from the uneven mix of creators who have had a hand in the story so far. I do think that JMS Spider-Totem angle has merit and Ive been one of the minority of readers who welcome the fresh take on the character, but Im still not certain if Spider-Man can suffer quite such an extreme and nasty reinvention whilst staying true to the essence of his character. Still, Im sure JMS has plans to rein "The Other" back to end up with a Peter Parker who isnt that dissimilar to the one we started with... I just dread to think what Pat Lee will make of such a delicate story next issue. Read Full Review

    This really isnt a bad issue at all, not least because something actually happens, but it should have been Part Three of this ridiculously overextended story, not Part Seven. Finally the plot gets into gear, and Im now actually interested in the next issue, rather than being deathly afraid of how inept itll be, but it's too little too late to save the crossover as a whole, which has been ill-conceived and badly constructed. Yeah, this is probably the best issue of The Other so far, but the story as a whole is still an awful mess, and Id not recommend it to anyone. Read Full Review
