The story continues to grow strong as we are one issue away from the end. Each issue has provided different twist and turns. A different cliffhanger at the end of each issue. This week we were left with the possible return of Captain Universe and the unknown fate of Ben Rilley. The only downfall of this saga is if you are not reading the tie-in stories one could be very lost. It is a pricey saga, but I would say it is worth it.
Writing and Storyline is a solid 9. This is how you write a Spider-man book. Even with the tie-in issues, I believe you would be able to keep up, but I also feel the writing makes you want to buy the tie-in stories. Art is an 8, when we are taken to different worlds, we know it, and it feels like it. Truthfully it is a great book. I have very limited experience with Spider-Man, it turned me into a fan. Can't wait to see what develops after the saga.
