"Loved the concept of this series. Spider-Man is such an iconic character, and that simple origin story has been tweaked so many times throughout the character's many "What If" appearances. It's a ton of fun seeing all of those different iterations of Peter Parker interact with each other. It really is sad every time one of them is killed. Overall, one of my favorite events Marvel has done in recent years." -- Jordan Lahn
"For those of us who've been away for a while, Spider-Verse is a great way to catch up on what we've missed and recapture the excitement of flipping open the latest Spider-Man comic!" -- Best Graphic Novels
"I thoroughly enjoyed Spider-Verse on the whole. It achieved just about everything I ask of an event comic:
1. Tie-ins that actually add value? Check!
2. Mystery and intrigue? Yes.
3. An epic conflict worthy of an event? Absolutely.
4. Good character development in spite of a large cast? Absofreakinglutely
5. Balance of humor, terror, sadness and triumph? Yep.
6. A meaningful resolution of conflict? Si.
7. Lasting impact? Sure looks that way.
If you want some fun and some straight-up addicting reading, you'd be hard pressed not to find that with Spider-Verse." -- Ryan Stewart
"With Silk and Spider-Gwen among the titles spinning out (and there's another spider-pun) out of Spider-Verse, and others perhaps still to come, it's an exciting time to be a Spider-Man fan. For those of us who've been away for a while, Spider-Verse is a great way to catch up on what we've missed and recapture the excitement of flipping open the latest Spider-Man comic!" -- Best Graphic Novels
"Any fan of Spider-Man, any fan of comic-books ... any fan of reading and/or looking at pretty pictures will find something to love about Marvel's Spider-Verse. Its knack for mixing a plethora of familiar characters with a whole mess of new ones echoes its ability to create something brand new out of the old favorites. This is the Comic-Book Event you've been looking for." -- Matt Lune

The binding, likewise is great. It's solid, it's sturdy, it's beautiful. The pages are printed slightly larger than standard comic book size, so you can experience the art at its best.
But the collection itself is lacking in a few places. The Amazing Spider-Man issues that cross-over with Edge of Spider-Verse are not included (although Edge of Spider-Verse itself is included, as it says in the description). So the true completionist will want the collection of those: http://amazon.com/Amazing-Spider-Man-Spider-Verse-Marvel-Comics/dp/0785197281/
Also, Spider-Verse issue two contains a story written entirely in Spanish ("El Espíritu de las Calles"). The art is great, but I unfortunately took French in high school, and understood none of the words. At the end, it says "Download the free digital version for the story in English". Alas, no such download is to be found online, and it appears that the original comic came with a one-time code that you could use in some Marvel app. I have not found the code in this edition.
However, the most egregious thing is that the stories are not printed in reading order. A reading order is outlined at the front of the book, but the stories are grouped by title (e.g. all the "Superior Spider-Man" issues, then all the "Amazing Spider-Man" issues, etc.). So if you read the stories in the order printed, the main storyline will conclude in the first half of the book, and then all the details will be filled in in the second half. Lacking page numbers or a table of contents, it is difficult to skip around. I went through my copy with post-it flags and marked a better reading order on them.
In conclusion, this is still a great collection, but with a little work it could have been amazing.
