Spider-Island comes to an end, and like the rest of this arc, this was a very good issue. I did feel that The Queen was perhaps defeated a little too quickly, but this issue was full of great moments and did a fantastic job of getting it’s point across, which was that Spider-Man is about more than having the powers, it’s about who Peter Parker is as a man. I liked how Slott tied the solution to the crisis into the events of #600, this is continuity working in a good way, it doesn’t get in the way, but if you’ve read #600 and already knew about Doctor Octopus’ robots, it adds a new dimension. The stuff with Peter and Kaine swapping costumes was cool too, and I think we can say for definite now that Kaine is the new Scarlet Spider. And hey! You! Over there! Yes, you, the OMD-hater who refuses to read Spider-Man these days because they ‘ruined Peter and MJ’s love’… you may want to read this issue. There’s something in this story for you too, even if you are mostly crazy.
