    AiPT! - David Brooke Aug 28, 2019

    An emotional, heartwrenching, and beautiful final issue that reminds us why Spider-Man will never be forgotten. Spider-Man: Life Story was clearly made with enormous affection and you'll feel it to the very last page. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Sep 2, 2019

    Spider-Man: Life Story #6 was an emotionally-charged conclusion for a series that will go down as one of the best Spider-Man stories in the characters history. Chip Zdarsky and Mark Bagley did a phenomenal job wrapping up the Peter Parker's life as Spider-Man in a way that appropriately paid off to all the character's experience over the decades since his debut. The interactions with Mary Jane Watson, Miles Morales, Aunt May and Otto Octavius further elevated the impact this issue had. If you are a Spider-Man fan I highly recommend picking up Spider-Man: Life Story when it is collected in trade paperback form. Read Full Review

    Chip Zdarsky and Mark Bagley truly ace these emotional beats, making Spider-Man: Life Story a true celebration of the character's publication history that I can see becoming a modern classic in the years to come. Read Full Review

    Weird Science Marvel Comics - Branden Murray Aug 28, 2019

    Overall, Spider-Man: Life Story concludes with some fun action, a couple nice surprise twists, and a few heartfelt emotional moments making the series worth checking out as a trade down the line if you've been holding out.  While the issues always seemed to get off to a slightly strange start, that seemed largely due to the concept of the theme at play here, because second read through are definitely a benefit with some knowledge going in. Bagley can still draw Spider-Man comic with the best of them and the art team as a whole did a steller job the entire run. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Jason A. Fleece Aug 28, 2019

    On paper, Spider-Man: Life Story was an exciting venture. The creative team is top-notch, and the idea lent itself to so many exciting possibilities. Its a shame that Zdarsky and Bagley and the rest decided to wallow in the misery instead. Read Full Review

    Like the overall story of Life Story, this issue tries to fit too much into a package that quickly discovers there's never enough time. However, there's more to be liked in these pages than not, and makes it clear that ambition is never entirely wasted. Read Full Review

    Spider Man: Life Story 6 is the best issue of the series and Life Story is already, in my opinion, a Modern Marvel classic. This issue had so many twists and turns and it perfectly balanced action, suspense, and emotion. Beautiful work by Bagley

    A perfect ending to an instant Marvel classic. This book should be in everyone's list of Spider-Man comics recommendations.

    This was really sad and bittersweet. It really nailed the tone it was going for. This was great. Can't wait to get the trade.

    This series started strong and stumbled in the middle, but I believe it stuck the landing. No spoilers, but one page was just, wow. One of my favorite surprises that I’ve seen in a comic in a long time. Well played Chip.

    And so ends Zdarsky's love letter to Spiderman, on a very high note with the best issue of the miniseries. Can we make him the writer of AMS already ? And as for Mark Bagley, if he needed to prove once more he's the seminal spidey artist, he just did in a most spectacular way.

    Prelude:
    Spider-Man: Life Story reaches the '10s. Can Zdarsky land this story?

    The Good:
    This issue works so well, wrapping up the story, villains and Peter's arc all within the context of the 10s.

    As always it has a spin on the troubles of the time but the appearances from this decade really put a smile on my face.

    Great conclusion to Peter and everyone around him.

    The Bad:
    Due to the nature of the story, there isn't much definition on the state of the world, just a snapshot of what's happening.

    Conclusion:
    The conclusion to Life Story, Zdarsky doesn't disappoint. All I can hope for is many more of these since this is such an interesting Earth.

    Nice little ending Zdarsky got. I'm not the first person to say this, but I wish this series was 12 issues instead of just 6. The ending felt very rushed in the past 2 issues, with tons of exposition bubbles and text bubbles to fill in the gaps. Also Peter's son from the last issue was implied dead, but he shows up here just fine, which was a little odd. I can't say enough about Bagley's art, which is just amazing. He's never drawn Spider-Man better than here, and you can really see his love for the character. Zdarsky also can't be ignored, he really gets the Peter character and what makes him relatable. Peter Parker is why Spider-Man is one of the greatest heroes, not the other way around; it's his relatability and his ability to ov more

    I really enjoyed this series and think that the concept for it was well worth the investment (and hopefully so was the return). For this specific issue however, I felt like it was a bit choppy and, given the gravity of previous "Life Story" issues. Given it's disjointed nature - it was still entertaining, and the concluding pages seemed to be a nice "tip of the cap" to the long standing MJ storyline.

    Overall, it's certainly worth the read but among the weaker members of the "Life Story" family.

    For what has been a great series to me, felt like the final issue was put together by a different team entirely. I’m pissed this was the end result
