Peter has been pushed farther than he ever has been before. Farther than anyone should. So what changes are in store for him and, indeed, those he loves most? Can he go back to who he was? Does he want to?

    Its frustrating that its the marketing-driven format of this story which has hampered it the most, as the various conflicts between Spidey and Tracer, Spidey and Morlun, and Spideys death and rebirth would have all made interesting smaller arcs in their own right, and could have taken place throughout the Spider titles over the same period of time; strung together into a 12-part epic, however, they make for an unbalanced and flabby crossover, which is likely to frustrate fans who bought into the whole deal expecting a cohesive and focused story. And if I was Peter David, I dont know if Id be happy that the strong opening issues of my brand new title were being overshadowed by such a middling event. Read Full Review

    On the plus side, this book has great art and, mercifully, is beginning to distance itself from the "The Udder," but the choppiness of the script detracts greatly from the book's successes. While this is better than previous issues, it does nothing to convince me of the necessity for a third Spider-Man ongoing title. Read Full Review
