    Stuart Immonens pencils continue to be great. He is starting to nail the emotional aspects of the characters, adding to those parts of the series. Seeing Aunt May in an old, ratty Led Zeppelin t-shirt and rubber gloves shows so much of who she is. But Peter is only in three pages of the issue, the rest is Spider-Man, and with Spider-Man comes awesome action sequences which are always a treat with Immonen. The two-page spread of the Ultimates bringing the hammer down (literally in Thors case) is amazing, as is the panel of Captain America with his hands in Venoms neck. The sequences flow and work so well. Read Full Review

    By the time the action wraps, I was done caring about Venom and his plight. Bendis created a fantastic introduction for the creature some 100 issues back, but it's clear to me now that the symbiote isn't going to be able to sustain more arcs than his Core Universe counterpart. He's different, and his origin is better, but subsequent storylines have not been. Time to let this one go, I think. Let's explore other villains and, more importantly, facets of Peter's life.

    The comics cliffhanger ending leaves the reader wondering how vast the repercussions of everything that has happened up to now will be. All-in-all, Id recommend it to anyone looking for an exciting read that wont take too much brain power. Read Full Review
