To be honest I'm sick of all of the cookie-cutter comics out there. This is some next-level writing by Al Ewing. I also really love the last panel of the book, which was fantastic. I can't wait to keep reading!

The ending was pretty good, art/scene at the end was decent and the set up was okay, but Peter/Spidey is in the hurt locker right now. Just bad character development with our favorite web head. Glad Slott is leaving, but at the same time hoping he can nail his last Spidey storyline (leap of faith, I know)
