When the comic book scholars of the future look back on Spider-Verse they may view the crossover as a disappointment. I can see that. There really isn’t much meat on the bone here. Most issues are generally the same:

reboot (editor’s note: hey! What did I just tell you!?!) or is it back to status quo of the New 52?
Switching over to Marvel, they started filling in some of the blanks on their Secret Wars Battleworld Interactive Map. (The map is very cool. Be sure to click through to it.)
