    Spider-Geddon has been one hell of a ride. While there were some rough spots with side stories being spoiled by releasing part of the story early, the event never dragged and rarely left readers confused or disillusioned over the story itself. As said above, landing even a satisfactory ending in an event is a great thing, and this entire team just nailed a 9.0 out of 10. Pick this comic up, or wait for the completed trade. Either way, this ones worth your time. Read Full Review

    Great saga. I really enjoyed the story even with my confusion. The ending could have gone many ways. I wasn't completely thrilled with the end, however, I was not disappointed either. I am not sure what I wanted the end to be, or it could be my sadness that the saga is over. Read Full Review

    The Spider-Geddon event had a lot of story to tie up in one issue. As a result, SPIDER-GEDDON #5 is extremely fast-paced once the climactic battle gets rolling. Still, it's an ambitious conclusion to the story, setting up some interesting developments for our myriad Spider-people in 2019 and beyond. Read Full Review

    I think that somewhere in my heart, I knew that Spider-Geddon wouldn't quite live up to the original Spider-Verse event. Ultimately, putting a lot of the important plot threads in the events various spin-off books made reading the main issues feel disjointed. Also, many of the most interesting threads were also left unresolved and saved for future series. I wish these would have been an explored more or came into play during the end game but inside the readers are left hanging. Read Full Review

    If you're a dedicated fan of the Spider family of products, you'll have a good time with this, but the event does require a solid amount of recent Spider-knowledge going in to fully appreciate what's going on up through this week's final issue. Read Full Review

    A weak finale to a weak event that unfortunately can't be saved, despite some entertaining action and character moments. Read Full Review

    Fast-paced, surpisingly nuanced for a book so full of insane action, Spider-Geddon #5 may not be perfect and may wrap things up in too-tidy of a bow, but it's a ton of fun that you won't want to miss. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Forrest Hollingsworth Dec 19, 2018

    A perfect microcosm of the Spider-Geddon event itself, the final issue is strong in the opening and closing, but weak in the middle. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Harlan Ivester Dec 19, 2018

    Spider-Verse was better. The movie was the best. If you want a multiple Spider-Man experience, just go see the movie. It’s not just better in comparison; it’s one of the best super hero movies ever. Spider-Geddon isn’t worth your time and you’re not going to remember it in T-minus one week. It’s mainly unfocused and solid art only does so much for such a mediocre story. Pass. Read Full Review

    The Beat - Joe Grunenwald Dec 22, 2018

    Ultimately, Spider-Geddon was an event with some nice character work but very little substance. It's pretty clear this was put out solely to capitalize on the release of the Into the Spider-Verse animated film and the heightened interest in that stable of Multiversal spider-heroes. It's a shame that this series couldn't live up to the potential of its conflict. Read Full Review
