Spidey squares off with DR. DOOM!

    Newsarama - David Pepose Apr 13, 2016

    Yet Thompson isn't just content with action and humor, but he also leavens this book with some sharp character moments, whether it's Peter having a cute heart-to-heart with one of his younger fans, or Thompson recognizing that somewhere deep down, there's actually a lot of similarities between this brilliant teenage outcast and this brilliant not-so-teenage dictator. While you can't help but wonder what an artist like Bradshaw might have done on a script this good, it's not to say that Araujo slouches one bit on this book. If this is a case of pilot syndrome at work, I'd say that Thompson has finally figured out exactly what he wants to be - and if that's the case, Spidey readers have just hit the jackpot.

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Noah Sharma Apr 14, 2016

    Though it occasionally has to use broad strokes, Spidey #4 tells a wonderful story, full of heart. Robbie Thompson really gets Peter Parker and he has a blast with Doctor Doom. It's sad that Nick Bradshaw couldn't contribute to the series' best story yet, but Andre Lima Arajo manages to make this one his own and demonstrates considerable growth from Spider-Verse. Though it's not a must have, Spidey #4 proves that this series can deliver on its promise, giving us a really solid issue, that combines classic storytelling, big action, and beautiful little character moments into a wonderful whole.

    Without that art, no supporting cast to speak of, and a textbook encounter of villain/hero this issue is just too plain. Read Full Review

    The Villain Oct 11, 2016

    Doctor Doom isn't quite as cool in his square off against Spider-Man for reasons I won't spoil. Really the best part of this book is a moment that Spider-Man has with a young kid. I think I would rather these books take a arc formula rather than a "one and done" thing like Stan Lee used to do.
