    Sad this wasn't ongoing. I hope that Cantwell can write more Spidey Stories

    That's one hell of a way to end a mini

    While I wish we would have had some epilogue at the end that was great finale. Cantwell sold me on Norman as a struggling good guy, sadly as it seems from this point on it's only Wells writing for Norman. I can already predict that he will relapse somewhere by the the end of ASM current run so Peter could get his regular suit and job back. It's a shame because Gold Goblin was a great character study potentially setting up the most interesting redemption arc.

    Good LORD what a final two pages. Those two pages bump those up from an 8.0 to an 8.5 for me. I do wish that the aftermath of what Norman did was explored more, but I'm hoping we'll see that in either ASM or some sort of follow-up to this miniseries. Overall, this was a surprisingly good miniseries that I kind of wish went a little longer.

    I really enjoyed this Good Guy Norman story. I feel like this status quo will eventually be replaced with a much less interesting one, so we gotta get what we can while we can. I wonder if the ending here will be picked up in ASM or if it will be forgotten, but I have some faith that Marvel wouldn't let the book end on such a sudden snap of an ending, without plans to explore its aftermath.

    It is good. I wish there was an epilogue for this to explore the fallout.

    But I'm glad the new status quo is continuing.

    Okay overall, this story is great. I liked every issue and they were some of the only parts of the Dark Web event that were even worth reading. As Afre mentioned, I do wish that there was some sort of epilogue as it really just ENDS. Very abruptly. It's not bad, it just felt like the issue was over quite quickly and we won't get to know what happens for a while in Norman's life since this mini series is now over. Cantwell did a fantastic job giving us a serious psychological dive into what Norman is dealing with. While being somewhat generic with therapy and trauma it's an important message to spread and how while Norman's sins are his own, they have impacted countless people. This issue just stumbled on the finish a little bit. The fight w more

    It was kind of the same old same old until the end. That was quite the way to continue Norman's story. I hope this gets more fleshed out moving forward in ASM.

    Yawn... Did they really get to 5 issues of this boredom? It's the same story retold 5 times.
