    I was a little underwhelmed I was expecting more from this arc. Oh well at least it’s always nice to see Teresa Parker.

    This was a bit convoluted, confusing and worst of all… kinda boring

    The Chameleon Conspiracy is almost a misnomer, to be honest. Most of the plot doesn't even revolve around him, and it's only really Teresa who comes face to face with him. Instead, the rest of the story is about the Clairvoyant and Spidey's attempts to save both it and its creator from a cavalcade of foes. It's fine overall, but it definitely feels like a bait and switch, and instead of rounding off plot threads, it seems more interested in leaving more dangling.

The little back-up stories that set the stage for Sinister War are almost more compelling than the main story, which isn't something I expected to say. either. Given this is the last arc of Spencer's Spidey before the end, it's a little disappointing. Even with the Giant-Size one-shot included to round everything up, it definitely feels like there's something missing here, just like in the previous arc. There's also a bit of an art collapse, with only one issue having one artist (Marcelo Ferreira) while the others, including the one-shot, get at least two if not more (some combo of Carlos Gomez, Ze Carlos, and Ig Guara). I know Spidey's got a tough shipping schedule, but it'd be nice if it could be a little more consistent like it was earlier in the run. I'm actually kind of glad Nick Spencer's run is due to end soon - I'd been really enjoying it, but these last two arcs really show that he seems to be running out of steam, and I'd rather he go out on a high than limp over the finish line if this is what we're going to get.

    I promised myself I wouldn’t “cuss” on this Christian GoodReads Account (tm). But who cares about Teressa? If you’re going to include her do something with her instead of spending 5 issues only to reveal she’s [redacted, not because it’s a spoiler, but because it’s boring]. Also the art changed so much even within issues. That was jarring. Also I am “fine” with others besides Bagley draw Spider-Man. But he has been phenomenal lately. I need him back.

    A lot happened in the previous volume of Nick Spencer’s Amazing Spider-Man, in which Peter Parker got a new suit whilst working at Norah Winters and J. Jonah Jameson’s Threat & Menaces website, all of which ended a problem, so Spidey quits. As for his former roommate, Fred Myers AKA Boomerang showed he wasn’t so reformed and duped Spider-Man, so that he can give the Lifeline Tablet to Mayor Wilson Fisk, who used it to resurrect his son Richard.

Jonah Jameson’s Threat & Menaces website, all of which ended a problem, so Spidey quits. As for his former roommate, Fred Myers AKA Boomerang showed he wasn’t so reformed and duped Spider-Man, so that he can give the Lifeline Tablet to Mayor Wilson Fisk, who used it to resurrect his son Richard. Meanwhile, Norman Osborn, now in charge of the Ravencroft Institute for the Criminally Insane, is hoping to reconnect with his son Harry, who just happens to be the hellishly Kindred that has plagued Peter from the start of this run. Throughout this whole run, which recently concluded after 74 issues, along with additional content outside of the title, Spencer is moving many gears to sustain that number of issues, all of which are subsequently published every two weeks. Following the events of Volume 13, this could’ve been the perfect time to take a breather and focus on the outcome of what had happened, such as Peter looking back on the actions he and others had made, whilst his nemesis Norman Osborn is hoping to reclaim some humanity with his relationship with his son. There are fleeting moments that touch on these ideas, but because Spencer has other priories, there are other storylines that need to be resolved and/or setup. Following the opening issue of this volume, which is an epilogue of what came before and a prologue for what is to come next – all of which nicely drawn by Mark Bagley, who knows how to illustrate character drama – is essentially the big resolution of one of the plot threads dangling from this run. When Peter is reunited with Betty Brant, who happens to be carrying the unborn child of Ned Leeds, who was presumed dead, the probability-predicting device, the Clairvoyant and its creator Jamie Tolentino become part of the supervillain airborne casino called The Palace. Meanwhile, Peter’s super-spy sister Teresa is seeking to avenge her S.H.I.E.L.D. partner and lover by breaking into the Chameleon's imprisonment at the Hiding Place, but was tempted with information on her parents, which involved their supposed killer: Karl Fiers AKA the Finisher. Considering that one of Spider-Man's deadliest and most deceptive villains is on the front cover and despite how Spencer writes him as close to being like Hannibal Lecter, it’s surprising how he’s not always the focus. We do see aspects of his backstory and how his influence as a master of disguise ends up having a huge impact on Teresa’s life, which I’m still unsure about and do wonder if that’s ever going to be revisited by Spencer or future creators. Instead, there are these other characters, some of which go back to the sixties, such as the obscure Finisher, who now seems to be a new threat for the Parker or least Teresa. And then there’s still the whole thing with the Clairvoyant that I completely forgot about and didn’t care much of as it concluded with a massive supervillain brawl. The majority of this volume is drawn by recurring artist Marcelo Ferreira, who, along with a number of guest artists, do an efficient job of superhero action, which relies mostly on a darker colour palette, though I still have a problem with the scrunchy facial expressions of some of the characters. Honestly, I wished Mark Bagley was more involved in this series, which hopefully is the case with the next volume, which will cover the final issues of Spencer’s not-so-Amazing run, excluding Spencer’s miniseries Sinister War, which is set up here. With so much stuff thrown in, a lot of which I don’t care, the lesson for anyone doing long-running superhero comics, is “less is more”.

    Nick Spencer: horrible writer Mark Bagley: dreadful artist Dear Marvel, you *can* do something about this, settling for mediocre is never an admirable thing.

    This was all over the place - storywise and artwise. It's a pity that a run that started really good is now so derailed. I'm glad that there's only one volume left of this.

    Se lee rapido, pero la historia se siente como un cierre apresurado sin mucho sentido.

    A fine example of a middle chapter: incomprehensible without knowing what comes before, unsatisfying without knowing what comes after. Skip this volume unless you're following the series (I'm not). A fine example of a middle chapter: incomprehensible without knowing what comes before, unsatisfying without knowing what comes after.

    Je sice strašně super, že nám Spencer pořád dokazuje, že má načtený starý Spider-Many, ale chtělo by to i dobrej příběh. Linka s Teresou je úplný WTF. Tohle je velký špatný 1,5*

    Quite a let down honestly. The parts with Theresa are interesting but the whole clairevoyant thing was too busy and convoluted.
