Is the universe trying to save her, or does fate only hold one end for Gwen? And will the drastic move of going public with her double identity fix the timeline -and more importantly, get Gwen out from under the Kingpin's thumb? Or will it just add one more layer of complication to Gwen's already impossible life? COLLECTING: SPIDER-GWEN 30-34

    An EMO end to a very EMO series.World: The art is great, I love Roriguez and his art, he makes this world a thing all it’s own with the tone, the linework the framing. His sense of motion and character is absolutely fantastic. The only issue I had was with the penultimate issue when Roriguez could not keep up and wow the art in the last couple of pages...just take a look.

His sense of motion and character is absolutely fantastic. The only issue I had was with the penultimate issue when Roriguez could not keep up and wow the art in the last couple of pages...just take a look. The world building here is solid, it’s what we’ve come to expect from this creative team, it’s similar to 616 but differnt enough to feel fresh and not trying to hard to make things differnt, it’s really good. The stage that is set for this finale is pretty great with the Watchers and the traveling and all the pieces it’s great, it’s a really fun stage.Story: Emo to the core and Emo to the end, this series if nothing else will be remembered by how moody Gwen and the world itself is. The story is solid, it’s a time travel dimension multiverse affair and with it comes it’s craziness. The pacing was a bit off though and sometimes readers would not know what the heck was happening until the appendix at the end. Gwen 617 was especially the case in that regard, the story was choppy and that added appendix in the end really was the story, not the issue itself, the issue was just pure emo goodness. The end was good, it took a route I didn’t expect it to take and it was, I’m going to use it again, emo but it worked. What I didnt like was the pacing, because of all the pieces that Latour and Rodriguez has created are all here on display (as is the norm with end of runs for modern comics) it also felt a bit crampted and not enough time was given to all the pieces that Latour wanted to show (Cindy comes to mind and Ben). A solid end.Characters: Emo and more emo and that’s what we’re getting in this series. It’s what it is and if you like these types of characters you’ll dig this ending character arc, you’ll dig what Gwen does. Gwen’s choice for this final arc is expected if you read enough of her and her interaction with Prime Gwen was great, it was all the feels and all the dialog and all the notions of this character and expectations of her history all wrapped up into one emotional package and it was good. Then there’s the rest of the cast which has their roles and I wish there was more time for them but mostly it worked. Dad needed more time in the end. A solid end to a series that has been consistently one of Marvel’s best in recent memory, I feel 1 more issue would have been great to pace the story better.Onward to the next book!*read individual issues*

    Not my favourite volume for sure, as it didn't have as much action as previous ones, but I loved seeing another Gwen and I'm a bit sad to let this series go, I really loved this world and the art was stunning.

With the events of Gwenom still fresh in her mind, Gwen finds herself face to face with the 616 version of herself, only a few days before she dies at the hands of the Green Goblin. What does her older, alternate self want? And even if Gwen can decipher this new mystery in time, can she cope with the fact that the entire world now knows her secret identity, while trying to take down Matt Murdock once and for all? And, most importantly, can she face her father?There’s a lot to unpack in this final volume of Spider-Gwen. The first half of the story focuses on the time-hopping Gwen introduced at the end of the previous volume, which helps give our Gwen some much needed perspective. There’s a continuation of that weird Watcher plot from the previous volume which I still think takes away valuable page space from the main Gwens, but seeing the pair of them interacting and the words of wisdom that the older Gwen imparts make up for that easily. Sometimes Jason Latour’s dialogue has felt a bit janky with this series, but that’s definitely not the case here.This adventure gives Gwen the courage to go back and face her own present. After a final face-off with Matt Murdock, there are two final issues that actually hit Gwen with some very real consequences for her actions over the past 30+ issues. It’s harsh, and unfair, but it’s very much in line with what we’d expect from Gwen and her world after all this. The reactions of everyone to her secret range from heartbreaking to hilarious, and the final issue which is essentially just a conversation between Gwen and her father for 20 pages is a great way to both come full circle and ensure that Gwen is ready to launch into whatever action the Marvel Universe wants to throw her into.Robbi Rodriguez has been Latour’s partner in crime for the majority of this run, and he finishes out the book in much the same ways as he started it – with bombastic visuals enhanced by the neon colours of Rico Renzi. Rodriguez’s contributions to this book cannot be measured; in the hands of a different artist, I don’t think Gwen would have gotten to be as popular as she is. There are a few fill-in pages by Chris Visions on one issue, and he’s not quite as clear a storyteller as Rodriguez – his art is a bit too busy, especially in the smaller panels of the book.Spider-Gwen’s solo series comes to a satisfying close (for now, she’s back in about a month because Marvel can’t leave anything alone for too long) as Gwen resolves all of her hanging plot threads and faces up to everything she’s done. Latour and Rodriguez have redefined an iconic Spider-Man character into a hero all her own, and this final volume is the guitar solo at the end of a epic rock-out. It’s had its ups and downs, and took a little while to really establish itself, but Spider-Gwen closes out on a high.

    The final volume of Spider-Gwen is so hard for me to rate. I never really fell in love with it as a series, but, wow, I loved the idea of it. Vigilante police officer Frank Castle? Sign me up. One of the most iconic characters in the Marvel universe meeting his tragic end to be a new heroine’s origin story? Yasssssss. Black, female Captain America? *Swoons.* Evil Kingpin of Crime Matt Mur(der)dock?

And, though the series itself never really blew me away, I am sad to see such an awesome little world coming to an end.

    I loved every bit of this series but these issues felt so pretentious and rushed. That could be because ideas best explored over months and intercut with more thrilling b stories were crammed in to a few issues with no space to breath. Can only hope after the event and her rebrand Gwen is in a series half as cool as this was

    End of the run. Great shakeup of the usual spider-person story arcs. So perfectly setting up the expectations on well worn spider-man story and flipping it on its head.Im sad to see this series end but it ended well.

    Why do all the good books end? And why with such lackluster endings? This wasn't A BAD book, but it felt so much like a "hurry up and wrap everything up before they turn the lights off and kick us out" kinda thing.

    Gwen meets Gwen but its all a little late in the day, surprisingly by the numbers for the last volume of this range, I hope Ghost Spider gets better storylines....

    The end of Latour's run...not really sure where it's going next. There were things happening which I wish the story had gone instead cough cough multiverse.
