The Clone Saga or Spider-Clone Saga was a major story arc in Marvel Comics which ran from 1994 to 1996 involving many clones of Spider-Man.
The story is one of the most controversial Spider-Man stories ever told. Although it was intended to wrap up in less than a year, the comics sold very well and the writers were encouraged to prolong the saga as long as possible. This led to some changes to the storyline that ultimately proved unpopular.[1]
Although there were many people involved, the Clone Saga is most closely associated with Terry Kavanagh, who proposed the idea, Howard Mackie, who worked on the majority of the smaller crossovers involved in the overall storyarc and Gerry Conway, who devised the original story. Executive editors on the storyline included Tom DeFalco, Bob Budiansky, and Bob Harras.

This book collects all six issues from writers Tom DeFalco and Howard Mackie who were there for the original telling of this series, and artist Todd Nauck. It was marketed as the way the story was originally meant to be told but I doubt they were going to skip time frames so quickly. Honestly you miss so much stuff in this retelling, not sure if they expected old readers to just remember all that happened, or that new readers would just not realize.
