    Budget-minded Clone Conspiracy readers can probably skip this issue without missing too much of importance. However, it does offer a more cohesive and satisfying read than the main event is providing at the moment. It also makes a strong case for the idea that Kaine deserves his own comic again.

    DEAD NO MORE is shaping up to be the most engaging Marvel event in years. Though it does not include the entirety of the Marvel universe, it delves deeply into that which it explores. Though I myself am a devout reader of AMAZING SPIDER-MAN and its associated titles, I do not think that DEAD NO MORE's depth serves to make it exclusionary to more casual readers. I believed the Marvel multiverse to be no more, post SECRET WARS, however, this does not seem to be the case. Read Full Review

    Other than that, though, Amazing Spider-Man #21 is an enjoyable and revealing piece of the Clone Conspiracy puzzle. It's also proof that a big serious event stories can still have plenty of heart"and be a lot of fun. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Joey Edsall Nov 17, 2016

    In Amazing Spider-Man #21, there is again a focus on exposition, but strong character moments with the likable Scarlet Spider and Spider-Gwen establish this book as a solid addition to the event. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Reggie Hemingway Nov 21, 2016

    Overall, unless you're severely investedin what Kaine has been up to and why he's back in the pages of Spider-Man again this really feels likea book you can skip in regards to this event. The dialogue and art are fine,but the story would have been better served as back-up material in an issue of Clone Conspiracy.   Read Full Review

    Superior Spider-Talk - Dan Gvozden Nov 16, 2016

    Amazing Spider-Man (vol. 4) #21 is yet another entry in the ongoing "Clone Conspiracy" event that sees the story stuck rehashing old plot beats and joylessly forcing its way through all the complicated exposition it needs to set up the future events. Read Full Review

    Kabooooom - Brandon Griffin Nov 17, 2016

    While it isn't a crucial issue of the series or story, it very satisfying to see Scarlet Spider face-off against the Kaine of another world, even sporting his 90's villain costume. Still, Amazing Spider-Man #21 is a forgettable installment in what has been an otherwise great story. Don't let this hinder you from continuing to read Clone Conspiracy, as Slott can still definitely still deliver. Just not this time with an issue that seems like an afterthought. Read Full Review

    I'm totally shipping Kaine and Gwen. I'm calling it Gweine. Or Kawen.

    I'm probably one of the few people who likes Carrion as a villain -- his first appearance was right when I started collecting comics, and that's a point that most people remember most fondly (I guess that's why so many people like Kaine)) -- and I was disappointed that this featured a bunch of totally generic zombies instead of him. I would have liked to see Slott's take on the guy. That said, this was a perfectly cromulant tie-in to the event, maybe a little superfluous as it backtracked to answer questions I hadn't been wondering about.

    Nothing much of consequence happens in this exposition-heavy issue; it's not a bad comic, but "The Clone Conspiracy" seems to have turned "Amazing" into a series of back-up tales during its duration.

    I am probably one of the few that enjoys the clone storylines but introducing a virus is pretty damn lame!
