I don’t agree with the low scores. Good book, good starting point. Interesting in the ways they’re relating to old Gwen.

Welcome to New York! Gwen truly becomes a Ghost-Spider when she moves full time to the universe where Gwen Stacy died years ago. But why did she leave Earth-65? Why aren't the other spiders supposed to know she's here? Why isn't she supposed to suit up? And who will get hurt when she does?

I have NOT enjoyed a lot of this run. This book? This book was really good. It does lose half a point because it was $10. The book prices are high enough, I don’t need the extra back stories. That being said, the back stories were fine.

Glad JRJR is nowhere to be seen, inside or on the cover.

The art looks so phoned in if Spider-Man or anything without any action isn't on panel. It's so disappointing. The only thing saving the art is the amazing coloring that really doesn't seem to hit until page 6. As for the story, for someone who isn't diving into Blood Hunt yet this was an engaging and pretty harmless tie-in. Its nice to see Peter getting upset about the world around him constantly more

Because it's a Spidey story with Vampires, it's the noble soul of Peter trying to cope with this end of the world scenario. And JRJR art...incredible!!!

Random fill in issue for a big event. It was fine for what it was.

I dislike JRJRs art, but I will give credit when it’s due. There were actually some nice panels in this one. The cover is mediocre though.

Retcon or reveal, not sure. As a stand-alone book it was good, but a “this character has been there the whole time” angle is almost never good. I appreciate Taylor trying to redeem the good parts of the Ric era, but I’d be even happier if Ric is never mentioned again.

Here we are again with a bunch of people over-hating on Tini Howard for whatever reason. That's all I'll say about that. As for the issue itself, I must say that I felt as though it was the weakest issue of the Gotham War crossover so far.

Alright folks, I’m going to give this the benefit of the doubt, mostly because I think Zdarsky is doing some interesting things with Batman. Bruce’s desperate belief that he needs to maintain the persona of “Batman”—that of a relentless crime fighter who cannot show any display of humanity—has been a really good deconstruction of the character, and the fact that crime has gone down in more

When I heard Al Ewing was writing the next Thor book, and giving it the Immortal tag, I couldn’t be more hype for anything else this year. Thor is my favorite character in fiction, and what Ewing has done here in the first issue is nothing less than a masterpiece. The art is stellar, and the story immediately feels epic and big.
