    The Beat - Samantha Puc Sep 4, 2019

    This annual is worth picking up not just for the cool fights and unique character work, but for the reminder that self-care is real and valid and isn't always what we think it is. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Sep 4, 2019

    The basic elements of an extremely clever standalone story are clearly visible in this issue. Its a really impressive creative team. Without a more inspired theme at the heart of it all, this annual is only capable of appealing on a very superficial level. Is it a displaced heroine mistaken for someone else by a theme park gone wrong? A premise like that deserves something deeper than Ayala was able to conjure here. Read Full Review

    Weird Science Marvel Comics - Jim Werner Sep 4, 2019

    Another Acts of Evil miss thats mostly harmless, but can be skipped by everyone but the few Ghost-Spider completionists. The setup promises some fun, but there is little to be had and the art wasnt good enough to recommend on its own. Id give this one a pass and just stick to the new solo series if you need a Ghost-Spider fix. Read Full Review
