    Imagine trying to follow A Song of Fire and Ice by just reading the Reek and Samwell chapters. It would be tough, wouldn’t it? Now imagine trying to read a crossover event side story with a whole bunch of generic female spider characters? Yep, here, Marvel, take my brain. You can trade it in for a couple of day old tacos at 7-11. Probably. The Inheritors, those evil creepy eaters of spider-essence are back from the previous Spider-Verse crossover and they’re looking for some spider-life force to Imagine trying to follow A Song of Fire and Ice by just reading the Reek and Samwell chapters.

You can trade it in for a couple of day old tacos at 7-11. Probably. The Inheritors, those evil creepy eaters of spider-essence are back from the previous Spider-Verse crossover and they’re looking for some spider-life force to chow down on. You have two separate story lines which, of course begs the question: Can these volumes function as entertaining self-contained stories? The answer may surprise you. Who am I kidding? They’re both pretty bad. Jeff, that just was mean. And how much did it cost you to read this review, Random Goodreader? Story the first. Spider-Woman, Kaine (a jerk face Spider-Clone) and some random Spider-people are on the radiated planet (Earth 45783, maybe) where they dumped some Inheritor stuff before. And, hey, let’s give a warm shout out to astronaut, John Jamison, astronaut. The Inheritor Queen or somebody makes her move… …see ya, John Jamison, astronaut. And, daw, look at Spider-Woman’s wall crawling baby. The second collection is All Spider Girls All the Time. Which is not as cool or hot as it sounds. Whatever. This one has the Inheritor twins, a multi-armed Harry Osborn (don’t ask) and some weird secret scrolls. I wish you well, Spider-Gal #3a. Bottom Line : “What was a fun idea the first time around gets worn out with repeated use.” I think Thomas Paine said that, or it could have been my mom. I don’t know if the second go round in the main story line of the Spider Verse is worth checking out but this one is El Paso.

    These are fine if you've read the main Spider-Geddon title. You'll be completely lost though with these two stories if you haven't though. They spin directly out of the middle of that event and Spider-Force especially gives you little context about what's going on. It's just a bunch of Spider-People on an alternate irradiated world looking for a Macguffin. Priest's writing style doesn't help either. The way he jumps around in the story makes it hard to follow and there's some inconsistencies. At These are fine if you've read the main Spider-Geddon title.

On the next page they're in their spaceship as if they were there all along. Jody Houser's story on the world of Amazing Spider-Man:Renew Your Vows is much better. She establishes the world for anyone who hasn't read her book before and then introduces two alternate world Spider-Girls to it. It was frankly a lot of fun.

    Three nonsensical issues and three absolutely gorgeous and pretty solidly written issues. World: I’ve never seen Andres Genolet’s art before but after his Spider Girls run I will pay attention to his art, it’s gorgeous. The characters are full of personality and the line work is simple and beautiful, stunningly good. He needs to draw Spider-Gwen or Ms. Marvel or even West Coast Avengers! The Spider Force issues on the other hand were messy, hard to follow and very scratchy.

The characters are full of personality and the line work is simple and beautiful, stunningly good. He needs to draw Spider-Gwen or Ms. Marvel or even West Coast Avengers! The Spider Force issues on the other hand were messy, hard to follow and very scratchy. The world building here is a mixed bag, there are the pieces that Slott created for Spider-Verse used here and we get more of them with these two new mini series. We get the radioactive Earth and the story there, the pieces are interesting and I rather enjoyed the setting it gave the story. The magical pieces of the Spider-Verse with the scrolls and Annie’s world is also pretty amazing, the best part about this trade are the two interesting world and the people that inhabit it. Story: Spider Girls is pretty fantastic. Not a lot happens here, and there are a lot of quiet moments and character building moments which is exactly what I wanted the tie ins to do. The main focus is on Annie and she’s a wonderful character and I want to see more of her (she needs her own book..actually a Mayday Anya Annie book would be nice too), this is her journey and it’s solidly written. Add to that the amazing art and it’s pretty much the best thing in Spider-Geddon behind Spider-Gwen. The Spider Force book on the other hand is an absolute mess. It’s choppy, the story is nonsensical, the internal logic of the radiation is all over the place and it’s mindless action scene after action scene with no time for characters to actually interact except to fight each other. There is no emotional core to Spider Force and it’s a shame cause the pieces we see with the astronaut (no spoilers) and wife and what happens on that world and the Inheritors could have been really emotionally charged but the sloppy poor writing makes it a chore to read. Characters: Spider Girls has five amazing characters and we get to meet and get to know them because of the pacing. I did not like Houser when she was writing ‘Mother Panic’ for DC as I found it too choppy and all over the place. Here with the quiet moments and the character development the characters she creates here are interesting and I want to know more. I love Annie, she’s interesting and her interaction with Mayday and Anya makes them interesting. Add to that the banter is great creating a lot of chemistry and personal for characters normally lost in the fold (Anya). The characters in Spider Force on the other hand are terrible. These are interesting characters in their own right and Jessica Drew is amazing, her series was amazing, her personal voice was amazing. It’s not the case here, here we get cliched banter and mindless motivation to move the story forward, it’s sad what they did with her and her squad. A mixed bag, a really good 4 star series in Spider Girls and a terrible 2 star series in Spider Force. Onward to the next book! *read individual issues*

    Two teams of Spiders race across the Multiverse to complete two missions that could turn the tide of Spider-Geddon in their favour. But of course, the Inheritors aren't about to let them adventure unhindered... Spider-Force, by Christopher Priest, has some good ideas. That's probably the nicest thing I can say about it. Priest's unapologetic approach to narrative falters here, as he doesn't spend enough time explaining exactly what's going on, which makes the proceedings a bit murky.

Priest's unapologetic approach to narrative falters here, as he doesn't spend enough time explaining exactly what's going on, which makes the proceedings a bit murky. The horror aspects of the character's situation are played well, and the character dynamic between the three Spiders involved here (Kaine, Jessica Drew, and a new character named Spider-Kid) is very good, but it's hard to get invested when you can't keep track of what's going on. Paolo Siqueria's art is...fine. That's about it. Siqueria's an artist I always look forward to, then remember he can't seem to pencil more than two issues in a row without needing help. Spider-Girls meanwhile is Jody Houser's return to the Renew Your Vows Spiderling character, as she grabs hold of Mayday Parker and Anya Corazon for an adventure that feeds off of the old Other/Bride/Scion relationship from the original Spider-Verse. This story's quite good fun, and much easier to follow than Spider-Force - it also plays well into the conclusion of Spider-Geddon itself, which is nice. The art by Andres Genolet is safe, but there's nothing wrong with that. If you're curious about the goings-on outside of Spider-Geddon, this collection isn't bad. But it's not essential, by any means, and your mileage may vary - especially with Spider-Force.

    The last of the tie-ins for the Spider-Geddon crossover covers two titles: Spider-Force and Spider-Girls. The second story is better than the first, but both seem to not be drastically important to the overall storyline. Spider-Force takes Kaine, Jessica Drew, Ashley Burton (Old Man Logan-verse Spider Woman), and Spider-Kid (new character in the universe they are in that seems to have an aging quirk... he looks young but is older than all of them??? I'm not sure, it was very confusing...) and put The last of the tie-ins for the Spider-Geddon crossover covers two titles: Spider-Force and Spider-Girls.

They interact with John Jameson (because I think anytime there is a human astronaut in a Spidey book, it has to be him) and with his help they are able to slow her down, but not stop her entirely. Spider-Girls matches Mayday Parker and Anya Corazon with Annie May Parker (Spiderling from "Renew Your Vows") and has them establishing Annie as the new Guardian and creator of the Pattern, a web connecting all the Spiders of the Multiverse. This is a critical point in the story, but I felt like was covered enough in the main title. The story is straightforward and has great interaction with the whole "Renew Your Vows" crew. Recommend, but only if you are a completionist, otherwise, save your time.

    I was torn on how to rate this, because I had very different feelings about the two included stories. I wasn’t really feeling Spider Force. The characters felt underdeveloped and the plot jumped around a lot and felt somewhat nonsensical. It felt like there was a good story buried somewhere in there, but it wasn’t quite there yet. It also felt very tonally dissonant with the rest of the crossover event. For all the seriousness of the event, the rest of Spider-Geddon retained the lightheartedness I was torn on how to rate this, because I had very different feelings about the two included stories.

This miniseries felt like it wanted to tell a darker, more serious story that didn’t really gel well with the characters. Spider Girls, on the other hand, was great. Unlike Spider Force, it didn’t feel like it was trying so hard to be dark and gritty. Don’t get me wrong — the stakes were very clearly there, but it wasn’t bogged down by them in the way that Spider Force was. It’s a series that I’d love to read more of, honestly. Or even just of Spiderling. It’s a great little series.

    Two miniseries tied to the Spider-Geddon event, neither of which are great. Spider Girls at least has a clear story and some fun new characters. Spider Force, on the other hand, is kind of a muddled mess, trying to cram way too much into three issues without any sort of clarity of purpose.

    This collection grabs six issues, two three-issue miniseries spin-offs from the Spider-Geddon event. They are radically different in tone - while Jody Houser's "Spider Girls" is a sweet and heartwarming finale to her "Renew Your Vows" run (and serves as a nice sequel to the fan favorite Spider-Girl series), Christopher Priest's "Spider-Force" is a dark, grim dystopian survival fight - but Priest infuses two of his central characters, Ashley from Old Man Logan, and Spider-Kid (a new version of Pe This collection grabs six issues, two three-issue miniseries spin-offs from the Spider-Geddon event.

Spider-Girls has much stronger art (a nice conclusion to the Renew Your Vows line, which started with lovely art by Ryan Stegman, but devolved as the series slipped in numbers), but Spider-Force switches artists all over the place. Both series end with a cliffhanger for the main Spider-Geddon event, but thankfully, Christos Gage does a nice job wrapping both series up.

    Collects Spider-Force issues #1-3 and Spider-Girls issues #1-3 I always rate Spider-themed titles a little higher than they deserve because I am a big fan. Both of these stories are really supplementals for the main "Spider-Geddon" storyline, and don't stand on their own. I enjoyed aspects of both the "Spider-Force" title, as well as the "Spider-Girls" series, so it is hard to decide which is better.

"Amazing Spider-Man: Renew Your Vows" has now been cancelled, so "Spider-Girls" is the short continuation of that series.

    Though these are side stories that absolutely don't make sense without the main Spider-Geddon story line, I think they add a different element than the rest (like the story line with Spider-Gwen as well). I enjoyed meeting Spider-Girls, and spider people in space are also fun. These are the people working behind the scenes to bring down the Inheritors, which means we get to learn more things about their history. Overall, Spider-Geddon is a fun addition to the Spider-Verse, maybe leading to more Though these are side stories that absolutely don't make sense without the main Spider-Geddon story line, I think they add a different element than the rest (like the story line with Spider-Gwen as well).

    I haven’t read the main event yet, but even so this was pretty interesting and quick to follow. It basically has two stories with different characters; two ‘teams’ with different immediate goals and same long term.
