Nicely done. This one's drawn by Ryan Stegman, and I still really like his visuals. He hasn't seemed to find an inker that suited his as much as his early Scarlet Spider work, but it's still solid superhero action, and he's right at home on Spider-Man books.The Venom Experiment story feels a little too short, like the writers only had enough space to set it up and not really tie it off properly, but the strain it places on MJ and Peter's relationship is worth it. Then we head into the final three issues (plotted by Stegman himself with art by Brian Level) bring the Normie Osborn plot to a close as well. This ends in a really heartfelt way, and would only really work with these characters, again. There's some very specific storytelling going on in this book, and I really like that. If you can swap out your heroes for others and the story stays the same, then something's wrong.Renew Your Vows' first act feels very complete, if a little rushed at times. I'm very interested to see where Jody Houser and Nick Roche take us in the next volume.

    This is drifted pretty far from what I liked about it originally, and it’s just hanging on by a thread to my pull list at this point. The original “Secret Wars” arc was about how being a parent changes Peter Parker, and that was really interesting. But now, with evil Normie Osborn and now a young Billy Connor as a lizard, it’s veering awfully close to something like “Teeny Titans.” Not what I was looking for. I want it to be about parenting, not about childish superheroes.

    For the most part this was pretty interesting although the storyline of 10 year old Normie Osbourne gets wrapped up way to quickly and neatly for my liking. And while I love the current run of SUPERMAN and can always feel the love within the Kent family, here in RENEW YOUR VOWS, it feels lacking. I know the Parkers are a strong family unit, but where it feels natural in SUPERMAN, here it feels like Conway is trying a little too hard for those "awww" moments.

    I enjoy reading this series so far. Wish it was a bit more consistent in this arc. Gerry Conway and Ryan Stegman opened with a great 2 issue arc involving the X-Men. Unfortunately, Gerry didn't write the next 3 issues/stories. Ryan stepped up as the writer/plotter --- which is fine, but someone else is doing the art. Will continue to read more in the future!

    It's not clear the author realizes how much the tone of the book shifts at the end. It would have been possible to do everything that he meant to do without the gore and get to the same place. Too bad, I guess.It's not clear whether it was meant to wrap up so quickly or what.
