    AiPT! - David Brooke Sep 9, 2015

    This is a fantastic end to one of the most exciting and easily accessible Secret Wars tie ins. The fact that the story begins and ends in this miniseries makes it all the more purchasable by fans of Spider-Man of all ages. Read Full Review

    Kabooooom - Marcus Hammond Sep 10, 2015

    Amazing Spider-Man: Renew Your Vows takes the idea of Peter as a parent and a father that we were given, briefly, in One More Day and develops it to a satisfying conclusion in issue #5. The impact of Slott's story paired with Kubert and Hanna's art prove that Peter Parker will always be one of the most complex and interesting characters in the Marvel Universe. Read Full Review

    Comic books come and go and creative changes are a plenty, but great moments are eternal. I'm happy to say Mr. Slott, you've given us another one. Thank you. Read Full Review

    Amazing Spider-Man: Renew Your Vows #5 is astrongfinish that carriedsome corny moments but never failed to inspire. For that reason the creative team more than earns recognition and praise as this one comes recommended. Read Full Review

    If this is the last readers see of this family, the love Peter, MJ, and Annie share is a deserved end to an enjoyable series. Read Full Review

    Comicsverse - Tom Bacon Sep 9, 2015

    All in all, AMAZING SPIDER-MAN: RENEW YOUR VOWS has been a tremendously fun ride. Unfortunately, #5 proves that the series has failed to live up to its amazing premise – but doing so may never have been possible in the first place. Read Full Review

    Comix I Read - Boris Roberto Aguilar Sep 9, 2015

    The AMAZING SPIDER-MAN:RENEW YOUR VOWS was an overall good read. While it seemed to rush to the ending, I overall enjoyed the mini-series. This issue in particular was well executed and was a fun read from cover to cover. That said, I was really expecting more. Like many event tie-in books, everything gets wrapped up in a neat little package. While this isn't necessarily a bad thing, I really wanted a better ending to this issue. If you are looking for a fun Spider-Man story then this issue and mini-series is for you. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Matt Little Sep 10, 2015

    "Amazing Spider-Man: Renew Your Vows" winds up being a very fun ride that gives older readers some long-desired fan service while still showing that, no matter the circumstances, Peter will always be Peter. When a character is as simple and well-defined as Spider-Man, there are no limits to the stories one can tell -- and, if nothing else, "banana pancakes fix everything." Read Full Review

    Pop Culture Uncovered - soshillinois Sep 10, 2015

    Speaking of Adam Kubert, while the art is not quite up to the par of previous issues, still does a great job with the issue action-packed as it is. The style even with Scott Hanna packed in is still recognizably his. While Amazing Spider-Man proper has seen a number of artists including Giuseppe Camuncoli and Oliver Copiel do stints long and short on the title, Kubert would certainly be a welcome addition to future arcs on the title, especially if Annie returns for a second shot as “Amp.” With a story like this, fans shouldn't worry about the present or the future for Spider-Man, someone who gets the character has the reigns, and has had them for awhile now.

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Sep 10, 2015

    Renew Your Vows doesn't quite live up to the promise it showed in earlier issues. It's fun seeing the entire Parker family united in battling evil, but said evil is still a bland, unremarkable villain. This finale issue doesn't pack enough of a punch, and it offers no indication of what elements might cross over into the relaunched Amazing Spider-Man. Read Full Review

    Amazing Spider-Man: Renew Your Vows #5 has some narrative thrills and wonderful art, but doesn't answer its central thematic question satisfyingly. Read Full Review

    Renew Your Vows was a nice trip down memory lane, but it doesn't have the teeth to be considered memorable on its own. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Lido Giovacchini Sep 10, 2015

    Its genuinely perplexing why Renew Your Vows was made given everyone working on it was so clearly on creative autopilot. Even at 900 words this review only scratches the surface of the comics problems like the incredibly insincere and rushed ending, the lazy artwork that often lacks backgrounds, the sloppy and aimless pacing, or the sketchy optics of a story that ends with a white upper middle class hero beating up a successful black man for trying to save the world from Dr. Doom. Not to mention, all the laziness of execution seems to have blinded the creators to what a cruel and mean-spirited little story this is. While its hard to tell whether the cruelty of the story was intentional or just an unfortunate accident, what is clear is they didnt care, nobody cared and it shows. Read Full Review

    As good an ending to a Secret Wars tie-in series I could imagine. It was sweet, touching, wrapped up plot points, and yet ended in a way something in this could potentially be revised one day even though it's an alt universe. I so wish this was an ongoing though...

    Seeing the Parker family team up to fight Regent was a pretty good way to end this mini series. Regent was a fairly solid villain in the end and it was nice to see him finally go down for the greater good. This was an interesting project and I'm glad it was done.

    Empty fluff in the end. But then, isn't all of Secret Wars? This was fun while it lasted, but it doesn't really have much to say, and I can't see myself returning to it in the future.

    At the end of it, this story really didn't mean anything. In issue #1, Parker leaves the Avengers hanging high and dry and I still don't feel like he made up for it. Ok so his daughter has Spider powers, so what? The Spider-girl version of Mayday Parker was a more interesting interpretation of the same character. And the black symbiote suit didn't really do anything either. I guess he really just couldn't find a spare red and blue classic costume. Regent also turned into chump during the anticlimactic final battle. I felt it was mostly a waste of time after reading the last panel but hey at least those Campbell variants are cool. Also, can Dan Slott PLEASEEEEEE pass the torch? I really had enough of him as a writer. His stories are becoming so mundane.
