I'll repeat a little from my review on part 1 through 4
Everyone knows the Clone Saga was a mess. Heck it Drove me away from Spider-man at the time. But what everyone doesn't know is that after the Saga was over the Story was actually fun and is the longest story arc the web spinner has ever had. Sure there are ups and downs and less then stellar parts but its one Large Epic story.
Its Marvels Answer to the Death/Rebirth of Superman
SO here we are at the last trade of the clone Saga. Or are we? Not by a long shot! The series just gets renamed "Spider-Man: The Complete Ben Reilly Epic!"
This is where the clone Saga gets all the bad rap. This is the point where reading monthly back when it came out Fans lost it. I know as I was there this was a hard comic to take monthly, but here collected in these trades you can read the story and not wait for months (closer to 2 years) for the resolution of this story. you don;t need to worry they ruined your Hero.(unless his name is Ben) This is just part of the Larger web that is Spider-man Lore now.
Spoiler Free here but This trade does not End the Clone Saga. The Clone Sage continues in
Spider-Man: The Complete Ben Reilly Epic Book 1
Still not a jumping on point. But hey if you have read 1-4 then this is right up your alley.
