A very nice ending to this story with some emotional moments. Glad that the story didn't drag any longer and, at the same time, that it's not over yet. I'm pretty sure that most of the stuff will be a buildup for 1000th issue from now on, and I am excited about that.

It really does feel like Slott is building the story to resemble a lot more of a classic Spidey. Nice addition of the Human Torch to the story, as it's always great to see him interact with Spidey. Immonen's art was great as always and he more and more is proving himself to be one of the best artists this book has had in a long time.

Opens up with apologies from former CEO Peter Park, and quickly turns to him hitting the streets in costume. So happy to see Spidey stayed with the classic costume. I love the street level Spider-Man. Not this humble CEO type. Never seemed to click for the character Peter. Man is the Human Torch a hot head haha.

Quite a good ending for the first part of the series (the combined Conway's and Stegman's run). No plot holes have been left and it could easily be seen as a 12 issue maxi-series. Not too sure if I am too excited about the time skip, but we will see.

Can't remember the last time an event was so much fun. Snyder writes whatever the hell he wants, and it is so good. Things like Detective Chimp sitting in a bar, or the whole C.D./D.C. thing left me speechless for how good it was. And from the events of the few last pages, it seems that it's only going to get better.
