    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.

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. 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.

    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.

For all the seriousness of the event, the rest of Spider-Geddon retained the lightheartedness of Spider-Man. 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.

    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.

I also liked the new character, Charlie, and I hope (and expect) to see him again in the future. "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).

    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.

    Moderately better than its parent event, but nonsensical without it, which ultimately brings it down.

    Meh. I liked Charlie Parker's costume, and it was nice to see more of Mayday, Annie, and Spider-Woman-616. But overall this was a skip.

    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*
