    Now seems like as good of a time as any to start the campaign to get Aaron Kuder a regular Spider-Man gig. This guy goes with Spidey like peanut butter goes with jelly. From the very first page it's clear that you are in for a treat. Even if you hate Deadpool, hell even if you hate Spider-Man, you can still marvel at the incredible artwork in this book. It's quirky, fun and a perfect fit for everyone's favorite web crawler. Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - Harrison Rawdin Oct 10, 2012

    If Amazing Spider-Man exists to tap into the ongoing stories of our hero in the Marvel Universe, then this series has easily cemented itself as the one-stop shop for the most entertaining arcs that are simply freed from current continuity, and Avenging Spider-Man #13fits that billperfectly. Recommended. Read Full Review

    Avenging Spider-Man has been a strong title so far, and its winning streak continues here. I'm really glad that this is one of the comic books that make it out of the transition to Marvel NOW! alive. This story definitely scratches my Spidey/DP itch, and while not perfect, it's certainly one of the best so far. Read Full Review

    I like that Marvel has some actual comedians handling Deadpool instead of the usual superhero type writers. I may even have to give the rebooted 'Deadpool' series a chance this November when Brian Posehn takes a spin as writer. If they can pull off the humor like Shinick did with this arc, Marvel may make a Deadpool fan out of me yet. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Oct 15, 2012

    Avenging Spider-Man #13 is one of those special comics that is so crazy that it works on many levels. The situations that Kevin Shinick and Aaron Kuder put the not to sane duo of Spider-Man and Deadpool is just so much fun that it is hard not to have a smile on your face when reading this issue. The enjoyment level of this issue is off the charts and fans of Spider-Man, Deadpool, comedic comics or a combination of the three will love this issue. Read Full Review

    X-Man's Comic Blog - Jason Todd Oct 15, 2012

    Now that was a pleasant surprise. I didn't expect much from this issue after the last one being so all over the place but I'll be damned if I didn't laugh my ass off. H.H. was awesome here, I'd love to see more of him, maybe as a member of Deadpool's Rogue gallery, along with Doctor Bong of course. And the twist of having them switch costumes honestly caught me by surprise, which made this all the more enjoyable. I never thought I'd say this, but I want more Hypno-Hustler! Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Oct 13, 2012

    This issue is a weird experience for me, in that I kind of love the ideas of a disco super-villain returning in 2012, but minor issues with the continuity throw my enjoyment. The art is a hoot, though, with the imaginary villains looking truly amazing in their onslaught against Mr. Parker, and some lovely dialogue throughout the conflict. There's a 'Ryan Reynolds' joke, too, and a couple of swerves that are pretty satisfying, leaving the issue as a positive (if hard to temporally conceptualize) reading experience. Avenging Spider-Man #13 isn't really much for continuity, either Deadpool's or Spider-Man's, but it's still an entertaining bit of comic book storytelling, earning 3.5 out of 5 stars overall. I rather worry that Marvel Now! will kill whatever momentum and/or fun this book has going for it, but for now, it's a pretty cool little read... Read Full Review
