    One of my favorite Spider-Man issues in recent memory. You get a long-promised ending and a brand-new beginning and best of all, a lot of questions answered.

    The Super Powered Fancast

    The Story: The finale has a lot of work to do to bring all the story elements together in a way that makes sense and this story does that really well. There is a lot going on in the issue, but the writers manage to keep it focused in ways that remind the reader how interesting and dynamic a character Spider-Man can be. The story does have some rough patches like taking away the menace of Kindred when the truth is revealed and I wish there was more of a deep dive into Mephisto’s obsession with Parker, but the story is really well done and affirms some of the best aspects of the character and his world.

    The Art: Each of the artists deliver some great visual moments in the issue. The action is visually dynamic and the characters moments are perfectly captured.

    But Why Tho?

    Amazing Spider-Man #875 features a collection of all-star artists celebrating the web-slinger and marks the end of Nick Spencer’s run on the title. Spencer’s run had its ups and downs, but overall I feel comfortable placing him in the upper echelon of Spidey writers with J.M. DeMatteis and J. Michael Straczynski. And hopefully, the upcoming “Beyond” era will continue to deliver great Spidey stories as Ben Reilly once again takes up the mantle.

    The Comicbook Dispatch

    Amazing Spider-Man #74 brings the story between Spider-Man and Kindred to a close. The fights between them are brutal with the art delivering a visceral experience for Spider-Man. The comic delivers answers about Kindred and ties in the three narrative threads of Norman, Harry & Carlie, and MJ back into the main plot. Now, this is not the ending that many fans were hoping for and will undoubtedly disappoint many, especially the side-story with Doctor Strange and Mephisto. Despite all of that, Nick Spencer does leave Spider-Man in a more positive place than he found him in.

    Amazing Spider-Man #74 is a microcosm of one of this series’ biggest problems: how long and drawn out it has all felt. Spencer’s final issue does use that length to make the story feel big, and while it may not satisfy many, you can’t say it ever shied away from what it wants to be. If you view this as an overly dramatic stage play it can be fun on some level, but for many, the best part about this issue is that the groan-inducing Kindred story is finally put to rest.
