Thoughts: I was very confuse by this story. This was a side story that was written within the run of The Amazing Spider-Man before Secret Wars event and I was really confuse with the direction of the story.

I felt that it was just a random story that they wanted to place within the universe. It felt like it didn't have any purpose in the whole picture of the story. I recently started reading Spider-Man again and really wanted to read the current run of it and was really disappointed by this side story. Specially since I was picking them up in single issues.

We basically follow another character in the Spider-man world and have Spider-man as a side character.

I don't recommend to pick this trade up unless you are really into the Spider-man world and would like to read up on everything that is written about him. You don't have to pick this up to understand the main story of  this run. You could skip this volume.

It did have some interesting qualities in it. Like see how a person will lose their way and how justice is really not given to those who did wrong in a world that is corrupted.
