If no one else except Jed wrote Black Cat in Marvel, I would perfectly fine with it.

Why does everyone act like their in factory settings mode? Flash being back from the dead should be a big deal to Peter but its treated as if nothing happened. Man what a waste of 900. For me, 200, 300, 400, 800 were the top centennial issues. This is the worst for how it seems less like a next step in Peter's journey and more like a repeat of status quo?

Unfortunately this didn't work for me. It just wasn't my type of story. I felt like it had the same feel as a comic from the '60's. It was kind of a basic superhero story with little depth. Those types of stories don't do much for me however some people like them. I hope others enjoy it more than I did

Stupid story, cartoonish art, nothing ever feels real or at stake. PP's alienation from everyone is nowhere to be found, dialogue is all "cute," boring several page "origin" story of villain, and Sinister Six never feel menacing. Aside from the interminable length, there was nothing "anniversary" about this issue.

EDIT: After reading this again, this just felt even worse than before. It's Spidey's 60th anniversary and 900th issue and this is what we get???

Well this was a very odd read. I'm perplexed by this issue. And very mixed.

Like, this story feels very filler(-ish). It really doesn't move the main story forward (except with "development" which is very... interesting?). But at lea more

I check in on ASM for every new run and centennial issue and this is one of the roughest issues I’ve read from ASM for a long time. Ed McGuinness’ art felt rushed and inconsistent due to multiple inkers. And the storytelling was very uninteresting with some very outdated dialogue. This is possibly the weakest centennial issue I’ve read from ASM and this new run seems incredibly unfocused and more

damn, this issue is gonna divide people. And honestly, I agree. This issue is fine, but it undoes a lot of stuff, especially Peter, Black Cat, and Mary Jane. I like the overall message but as the 900th issue anniversary and the 60th anniversary of Spider-Man, this was a huge let down.

FAVORITE COMIC OF THE WEEK!

What I appreciate in Al Ewing writing is that he respects continuity and the cosmology and universe rules set up in the Marvel Universe. ( One above all. etc )

That being said I am a major fan of Secret Wars 2015 and the original event in the 80s.
Ewing pays respect to fans of it and all for it! This is gonna be good!

While this series never reached its potential, this was the best issue in the series with ot of good moments.

However the flash forward and backwards stuff never justified itself. I do appreciate the experimentation and hope that King learns to better use it for future stories. I wont go to extreme conclusions that this is the worst comic ever or that King should never write again. This more

However, I wish the mystery behind the IronCat identity was more compelling. But it doesnt take more than a second to realize who it it before the reveal. I'm glad they reveal it this issue and hopefully lead with more character development between them and Felicia

This is the best spider-book on stands! It doesn't dwell on wasting our time with filler or mystery box characters or 6 months later. It focuses Ben Reily as a character and his relationship with his clone brother Spider-cide. The art he was fluid and supported the action well. I hope we get more of these by the same creative team!
