Anghus Houvouras reviews The Amazing Spider-Man #700 and Avenging Spider-Man #15.1...

Finally, after weeks of speculation and Internet rage the final issue of Amazing Spider-Man hit the stands (#700 for those keeping count).  Underneath the hyperbole and the irrational anger towards writer Dan Slott is arguably one of the most insane and sadistic plot twists ever introduced into a mainstream comic.  That shocking twist ending you've been reading about online is not only true, it's delivered with brutal efficiency. 

For those of you who haven't been paying attention: Doctor Octopus has successfully switched bodies with Spider-Man leaving the soul of Peter Parker imprisoned in the dying body of his nemesis Otto Octavius.  Not wanting to die anonymously in the body of an evil villain, Spider-Man constructs a plan to reverse the process.  And in almost any conventional comic story the ending would have been pretty obvious: Spider-Man wins, reverses the process, and gets his life back. »
