    Still, a great book and USM remains one of the most consistent books on the market and a guaranteed solid read. Read Full Review

    This comic is still a great read and its comforting to know that it can still deliver on its original mandate: To tell exciting stories about Spidey and make them seem fresh to loyal and new readers alike. Read Full Review

    All in all, this issue completely falls apart and derails the entire arc. It's not as bad as the "dark ages" from a few years back and it's not the worst thing I've read this week (far from it). Mostly it's just a huge disappointment (as if I haven't said that enough). I hope "Amazing Friends" will lift my spirit in a few weeks. Read Full Review

    Stuart Immonens art had some problems this issue as well, lacking an ability to convey what was going on in the less action-heavy scenes. While his pencils are still very well done, perhaps a combination of a sub-par script and poor layout has led to this issue being unable to portray the emotion that is going on. Harrys death was shown but not felt until Peters eulogy scene at school, probably because Bendis attempted a more silent approach to his death and it did not work as effectively as he likely hoped. The action sequences were much more effective, with some of the bigger panels featuring some great art. Much of the smaller panels worked well to bridge between these bigger panels. So overall Immonens art worked well as the issue was so action heavy, but the conveyance of emotion and consequences of these fight scenes was lost. Read Full Review
