    Default Spider-Man Gathering of the Five?

    Hi all, I have been continuing the hunt for my post Clone Saga & JMS trade collections. I thought I had wrapped up my Clone & post-clone saga stuff with the Green Goblin's Revenge, but I learned about the Gathering of the Five trade and it supposedly ties into Clone Saga and the Next Chapter (with Maddie Franklin becoming Spider-Man). I guess my question is is this trade really a necessary stand-alone book or has it been collected in other trades that I might already have? (I have all of the Clone Saga, plus all 4/5 volumes of Spider-Man the next chapter). Also I read somewhere that this is the book wherein Peter learns that Aunt May is alive (she supposedly died during the 90's Clone Saga after suffering a stroke), so I'm guessing this ties up all of that stuff?

    Hi there! Yes, in order to understand some of the reboot material, you'd need The Gathering of Five trade. From what I understand, the trade collects "The Gathering of Five" and its followup "The Final Chapter". So it fills in those story gaps before the Byrne/Mackie reboot.

    Can someone verify if one of the essential Spider-Girl volumes currently out has reached the point where the alternative version of Gathering of Five is told?

    Looks like that would be in a hypothetical third or fourth volume of the Spider-Girl Complete Collections (it's issue 49, I believe, and the first two collections go through 32)
