Nope, not my cup of tea. I really don't get all the 9 or 10 this is getting. This is a weird alternative life for Peter and, as I said for #1, it just feels rushed and basically useless. Read the original stories instead.

I'm not into this. Don't get me wrong: the idea of Spider-Man's story through the decades and real events is intriguing, but the execution is poor. I don't even get what the target is for this. Hardcore fans will know 3/4 of the things here and new fans will be confused by all the references. Everything is too quick, if you're not a huge fan you will feel lost because the pace is terribly rushed.

If you're still pissed off by the last issues... You won't like this. Or will you? Spencer starts teasing something new here, including Carlie Cooper in the mix. Of course there are still more questions than answers, but I'm not expecting much anymore. Also, there is a very satisfying moment that I won't spoil. All in all, a good issue.

Whoever approved this series should be fired from Marvel and never return. There are dozens of continuity errors and the characters have NOTHING to do with their original counterparts. Leave Gwen Stacy dead.

Don't get me wrong: the writing and the art are always very good because Spencer and Bagley are the best you could wish for now. The problem with this whole "Last Remains" is simply the hype, as most readers were expecting something else. There was NO revelation and NO answers to what Kindred is really trying to do. It's always a "we'll see what's next".

The problem here is that I really like SOME parts (Kindred as a character, the atmosphere...) but sometimes this all feels pointless. Spencer is the best Spider-Man writer in decades, but it looks like he kinda lost control of this. To be clear, this is not a story arc ending.
