Subj: Spider-Verse #1 AKA Edge of Spider-Verse #7

Strangely enough, this has little to nothing to do with the actual event and is just telling the stories of Spider-Verse spiders. In most cases (all?) in this issue, they haven't yet been visited by the gathering Spideys.

I also think the intro to this book makes a clear indication that Old Jacket Spider-Man is probably Uncle Ben. Even though that makes no sense considering all we know about Jacket Spider-Man from JMS' run and Grim Hunt.

But I digress.

Honestly this book didn't suck. The first story is pretty good. Snack Cake Spider-Man was a throwaway gag. Little Girl Spider-Girl was kind of funny but I don't have any desire to see again. And Slott trolling Newspaper Spider-Man was actually really good.

Ultimately this was another Edge of Spider-Verse issue of characters who couldn't fill up a whole issue of their own. Not as good as Spider-Gwen or Sp//dr but decent enough.
