this book is supposed to be about the different reactions to the death of Peter Parker.

they range from uninteresting (Thor) to poignant (May Parker, Nick Fury). some stories are predictable (Kitty Pryde), some are surprising (Captain America).

however, the book also has snippets of other characters that seem to be shoehorned in for no apparent reason (apart from generating interest in future issues).

for instance, there are scenes with Quicksilver and Reed Richards that don't even mention Peter.

if, like me, you have collected the Ultimate Spider-Man series, this book is worth buying as an end issue.

it is not a stand alone read.

at the end, i was left wondering what would happen next and i'll probably buy the new Miles Morales Spider-Man books.

i guess, as a teaser, this book has served its purpose

the book can be described in the two parts, one half deals with aftermath of death of the spider-man, the other sets up new story's.

Yes Peter Parker died, he was killed of in a fitting manner, sadly what follows is the stereotype comic book funeral where everyone is hyper emotional, blaming random people, blaming themselves, acting out of character, getting overly upset about things they were no involved it. Bendis who writes all of these sections of the book makes out the peter Parker was the centre of universe too everyone in that universe. but if you'd read any books before you'd know that wasn't the case. It was just he was the most popular single character with the audience.

the second half is a lot better, but it's more like teaser trailer, it grabs your interest but there not a full story there.

Overall the book is a bit everywhere, too many writers, too many artists. Give it a miss, unless your a die hard collector.
