What a waste. But at least it's over.

Everything about the writing of this series was just so... wrong, bad or poorly done. There really aren't ideas here I like. And I like the execution even less.

Only the art saves this from being a 1.

Well... Hahahaha ok ok! I have to say I kinda dig this. Tombstone literally made The Rose look like a giant wimp. And Peter did his dirty work without even knowing it. Romita got back to his best after a bad issue and this took me back to the best JMS stories (with Spidey hanging from the ceiling and kicking The Rose's goons right in the face).

I just love the job that Wells is doing, is amazing. Besides the controversies taht this run is having, I'm happy with it. The plot is good, I like Tombstone, Wells writes him very well and he's a good villain, and what a plot twist! I didn't see that coming, which is difficult in a world where everything has been told. The other characters are good too, specially Peter and the couple. The tension more

Now this, this is what Spider-Man is supposed to be: pushing past extraordinary odds to wrestle with two crises in two parts of the city because maybe he can't win, but he definitely can't give up — only to find that even when he wins he loses. And the twist with Tombstone is classic Zeb Wells, no one does villains like he does. JRJR has his good moments and his bad moments, but he holds it toge more

MOST fans of Spider-Man get mad about just about everything. Stuff they want happens? Complaints. Stuff never changes complaints. That least this is new. Somewhat. And yeah, absolutely we don't have nearly enough info after 4 issues to be infuriated.

Ya Tom kings two issue double date with Clark and Lois was probably the best two issues of his run. Which should prove why I make fun of his run the way I do.... And Batman imposter is not better then court of owls, the white knight I might give you on part but not better and the sequel while gorgeous isn't as good as 1, endgame not better then court three jokers was beautiful but a better story... no just no.

Surely better than Issue 2, but I'm still extremely confused. How is Peter locked by simple handcuffs? He should be able to completely destroy them and kick all of Tombstone's goons in the face.

You have every right and reason to have mixed feelings on the series. I certainly do but Daredevil is never wrong when he says you don't HAVE to read it. No one is making you and if you don't like what you are reading, stop. Not saying you should nor that you would but it can be good advice. Or even take a break and see if the story is better digested together instead of parsed out month to month. Getting the feeling this is being written for trades (which in itself is frustrating).
