    Uh, it was okay nothing special. I'll give it 2 out of 5 stars so a bit below average, IMO.
    2 out of 5??? What does it take to impress you, Celgress? Haha

    Quite a bit. I have very high standards. For example, The Killing Joke, The Dark Night Returns, Hush, The Night Gwen Stacy Died, If This Be My Destiny, Kraven's Last Hunt, All-Star Superman, Death and Return of Superman, I give all 5 out of 5 stars.

    True, by way of contrast I felt this was just another story a tad subpar if anything. Not awful but maybe a little boring and by the numbers, IMO.

    Did you ever read "Peter Parker: Spider-Man" back in the 00s? By Paul Jenkins?

    What does it say that I hate every single story on this list?

    They just didn’t live up to the hype. In fact, the more I read them, the worse they seem.

    Yup, I liked it (more or less) 3.5 out of 5 stars overall (as a run), IMO.

    Nah, people tell me I am indeed a very tough critic. I seldom give out four stars or higher for a run or even a story.

    Not really, I still enjoy them for what they are I just don't count them as masterpieces or anything close.

    Now if you want to see a 0 star/0.5 star book, IMO, check out the current run of Nightwing, terrible, terrible stuff.

    Isn't there some villain killing those other Nightwings guys because they're not Dick? Because honestly, it sounds like someone to cheer for, even though you're probably not supposed to lol.

    Yup, that and the whole "Ric" persona saga makes it a grade AAA f'n mess. The plot is reaching Clone Saga levels of convoluted.

    Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man #14 will now be drawn by Ken Lashley, not Juann Cabal. Most likely to finish out the series.
