I just devoured this book in less than a day: it was that good. I noticed the other reviews of this book don't rate it very well, but truth be told, the story is not that bad. What is kind of bad is the artwork. What the heck is going on with Planet of the Symbiotes Part 2. The outline of the characters are so squiggly, especially the muscle definition on Peter's shirtless body, that I felt like I was looking at something from Comedy Central's Dr. Katz.

What was particularly distracting was what

This volume starts off with an issue-long story-so-far … which is always a pretty bad sign that your story has gone on for too long.

Players & Pawns. The first actual story seems to support that idea. It starts off with a really horrorific mish-mash of everything under the sun, including Jackal, Jack, Scarlet, Spider, a third Peter Parker, and even Scrier. It scarcely makes any sense as it jumps rapid-fire between all these characters. The second issue is better, and thankfully puts Jackal an

I surprisingly hated this volume much less. Perhaps with the previous volumes under my belt I expect far less. Also, I think most of this was in actual publication order as well as chronological order. So it didn't seem as off.

Lots of Bagley art which is pure positive. Even if this is super 90's Bags.

There were at least a few instances of women with impossible proportions but overall not as bad as some.

It's just nostalgia and a really good library system keeping me reading at this point.

For the most part, the plot continues to deteriorate and lose its way. The storyline was stretched out well beyond its intended endpoint in order to take advantage of sales, and the padding shows in a horrible way. A second clone is added to the mix and runs around achieving nothing but filling more pages.

This volume is marginally better (but not a star's worth) due to the inclusion of Amazing Spider-Man 400, a

Still reading the clone saga. This is where it starts to go wrong, to be honest. The story loses all momentum and people just start staring at each other and scratching their head. I feel a bit bad giving this book such a low rating, as it does feature "The Gift", probably the best single story in this entire five-volume set, but it really can't redeem the rest of the crap in these covers.

Amazing Spider-Man #400 is, in my opinion, the best Spider-Man issue of all time. The rest of this collection is hit or miss - as is the rest of the clone saga - but this one is definitely worth reading for #400.

Continuing the clone saga. A good mix of story and fighting all kinds of Spider-Man villians.
