Okay, i normally don't write long texts in my reviews, but i have a lot to say about this issue and this run as a whole. First things first: i'm a massive Nick Spencer fan, i absolutely ADORE Superior Foes, Morning Glories is amazing, The Fix is one of the funniest comics i have ever read, His Captain America run was really good(even though Secret Empire ended the way it did) and everything he did more

It comes with a heavy heart that I have to give this final issue a negative score. This will not have spoilers. Thanks Afre, Batman, Federico Ligueri and Jeff Plaza for explaining your thoughts more effectively than me.

Lets address the elephant in the room. The Art. I understand how art is supposed to be "subjective" but when the art isnt CONSISTENT, then its a big problem. I dont know more

This was massive massive let down. I was on board Nick Spencer story untill Marvel Editiorical High jacked his book and rewrote it leaving this massively unsatisfying.

THIS.WAS GARBAGE. No way he left this conclusion before he left marvel. THERE ARE LITERALLY.PANELS and dialogue in the comic that look like that were deleted. The main one is the last pages where it looks like peter says more

I'm sorry but after all the hype Spencer built all these years, after all the convoluted storytelling he went after at times... this is the best he could come up with? No. I'm sorry, but no. He put all his eggs in this one basket and the omelette we got was terrible, nothing he did here helped any character in a useful way, maybe Norman because he's less of an ass but that's it.

Something is definitely amiss. Months ago Dr. Strange bursts into Mephisto's lair and asks "What have you done to Peter Parker?" Now, months later, he's concerned with Harry Osborn's clone? PP produced a wedding ring months ago. What happened with that? MJ starts to admit something to Peter, it's interrupted and never referred to again. Norman Osborn sells his son's soul to the devil and then crie more

I really am sad to say that after 3 years and about 100 issues (with events, tie-ins, etc.), Nick Spencer’s run really went nowhere. Things happened sure, and I am extremely grateful that he undid the Gwen Stacy and Norman Osborn storyline — one of the most horrendous plot points in Spider-Man’s history in my opinion second only to One More Day. But the constant teasing, constant foreshadowi more

EDIT: After reading that bleedingcool article that confirms that this was rushed (not rewritten) by the editorial due to Beyond storyline, I get why this is so disconnected from the other storylines.

Yeah mate, I feel you. It looks like Spencer and Marvel forgot the last 30 issues and just said "ok, let's get this done". Kindred kinda makes no sense after this issue, their motivations are incomprehensible and so is the whole "AI Harry is possessed by Mephisto who is possessing the twins". I'm glad they retconned Sins Past, but that's about it.

Let’s be clear. Spencer, Lowe and Co. needed over 80 issues to complete the Kindred arc. 80+ issues! Repeat that again to yourself and you begin to realize just how absurd this whole fiasco really was. Then to top it off it was completely incoherent storytelling. There are only two possible explanations…either it’s total incompetence by the editorial staff or a shameless cash grab. I’m not more

The simple truth is that Nick Spencer is producing a middling run on the Amazing Spider-man. He won't be remembered alongside some of the more influential modern age writers like J Michael Straczynski and Dan Slott; both of whom definitely made their mark on the character with new villains, interesting concepts, etc. The current run of Amazing can't even seem to get a consistent art team.

This is just bad. How can Marvel consider this writing and art okay for one of its premier characters. I'm dropping this book. I might check back in on it a year from now. I'm sure I won't miss much...Spencer will still be milking the Kindred mystery for all it's worth.

Nick Spencer's run on ASM is just plain bad. This latest Spider-man 2099 arc is unfocused and totally disrupted the Kindred story just when things were starting to get interesting. In contrast, take the Immortal Hulk. This book is also published bi-weekly and has maintained a consistently high quality since its launch. The Immortal Hulk has also had the same creative team (Al Ewing & Joe Bennett) more

One of the best individual issues of spider-man that I've read in quite some time. JJ and Henry Abrams are a great father/son writing team and Sara Pichelli's pencils are sublime. A new mysterious villain...check. Real stakes and a story that isn't a retread of the past...check. Top notch artwork...check. This one has it all. I urge everyone to check out this book.

This is a great series. Tom Taylor is an excellent writer with a great handle on character and dialog. This book also nails spider-man's humor with many laugh-out-loud moments. Cabal's art is impressive. In short, this team should be on Amazing Spider-man instead of Spencer/Ottley.

Spencer and Ottley are a talented team and perhaps that's why I am so disappointed with their current run. We have yet to see a truly epic Spidey battle and every villain (usually C or D list) is treated as a joke.
