    Word Of The Nerd - Harry Roachford Sep 16, 2015

    Other than a few small foibles this is a very solid conclusion. It's definitely worth the money, the humor is good, and every character gets to shine in their own way in the issue. What felt like mostly a hit ormiss Secret Wars book up until this point has really found its footing in the last two issues. With the work in this issue being so good the excitement for the Web Warriors comic is no longer just a tepid feeling. Read Full Review

    Andre Araujo's art continues to work well in the battle scenes but looks awkward in when it comes to faces. Rachelle Rosenberg's colors greatly help, though.All in all, it was a fun series, but it could have used more meat. I hope the upcoming Web Warriors series fixes some of these problems.

    Superior Spider-Talk - Tony Goodwyn Sep 21, 2015

    Despite good characterization and improving artwork, Spider-Verse #5 still ultimately feels like an unnecessary story. Jumps in narrative cohesion and the penchant to tell rather than show make for a series that goes through the motions, but feels empty. Read Full Review
