This is by far the best issue of this increadibly lackluster series. The main reason I liked this issue a great deal more than the previous issues is the inclusion of kingpin who is by my favourite marvel villain so i may be a bit bias. Overall I was going to drop this book after last issue but this has made me decide to continue. God dammit Bendis

Not only do I think this is my favourite marvel book at the moment but it is the book I look forward to reading most from any publisher. This issue continued the greatness of this series and in addition to Christian wards usual breathtaking art ,there is additional art from Frazer Irving which also looks beautiful. I could go into a great level of detail describing how much I love this book but in more

Whilst it was nice to finally learn more about what's up with Groot, this was (to me) the weakest issue of the series so far which isn't to say it was awful,I've just really enjoyed every issue so far so even though this issue was fine and had some good moments I didn't love it as I have previous issues

7.0

As the start of an event I didn't think this issue wasn't as good as it could of been. I think it was on par with the x-23 edge of venomverse issue but not quite as good as the ghost rider one. However the art and Cullen Bunn are enough for me to continue to read this event.
