The epilogue of Dark Web is set in “Spring,” which marks roughly a three-month timeskip from the main events of the story. Factor in Amazing Spider-Man #908 (which also began with “Spring”) and it’s been at least a year since “Beyond.” (Although I could see the next issues of ASM picking up before the epilogue, particularly with the next two issues being by a guest creative team.)
From the lettercol:
I’ve only been reading comics for about a year and a half, so I haven’t encountered too many crossovers yet.
Oh you sweet summer child.
Things I missed by not reading the other tie-ins: Eddie Brock turning into Bedlam.
The Flash special was mostly side-stories, which is honestly a fine use of a tie-in issue, even if I’m always amused when none of the characters on the cover appear in the issue. It was nice to see Avery Ho again.
I’m not hugely into DC Comics’ potential futures, seeing as we’ll never actually get them, but I do rather like the one we’ve seen in Adams’s run—part of it, I think, is that the Flash legacy extending well beyond Wally West has been a well-established thing for a very long time.
