    AIPT - David Brooke Aug 31, 2022

    At $8, Amazing Fantasy #1000 is a steal. Its unconventional nature of doing all sorts of Spider-Man stories is refreshing, with tales focusing on personal anecdotes, Spider-Man at 60 years old, and various facets of what makes Spider-Man great. Plus, the creative lineup on this extra-sized issue is downright historic. What else could you ask for? Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - M.R. Jafri Sep 5, 2022

    The final story is a nice touch with Spidey passing the torch by inspiring future heroes by recently passed writer Mike Pasciullo along with artist Todd Nauck. This entire issue shows so many ways in which Spider-Man can be portrayed both artistically and from a story telling perspective, but they all feel true to the character and cast. This is an amazing way to celebrate Spider-Man's anniversary and hopefully inspires similar anthology style books for future Marvel anniversaries. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Logan Dalton Sep 4, 2022

    All in all, the story captures the essence of what makes the character great because he has great power, yet relatable problems ("Rent!), but still perseveres no matter the odds. Read Full Review

    A perfect one-shot celebrating 60 years of Spider-Man. Not a single bad story in here. I can't make up my mind over which story is my favorite between Slott/Cheung's, Hickman/Chechetto's, or Gaiman/McNiven's.

    Outstanding mix of stories from "Amazing" to OK. The one that stuck with me and is worth the price is Slott's which made me misty eyed especially with the way Cheung channeled Ditko in his art. Rainbow Rowell/Olivier Coipel and Hickman/Marco Checcheto were great too. These anthologies are almost always money grabs but this one had the goods.

    Just Some Guy - A beautiful and fun story with an artwork reminiscent of Smallwood’s work, it’s great. 9/10
    Sinister 60th - Cho brought his A game and Slott wrote a great story about our elderly hero. 10/10
    Spider-Man vs Conspiriton - Fun story about conspiracy theories. 8/10
    The Kid’s Got a Good Eye - Short and sweet, it’s always a treat to see Oliver Coipel’s art, especially with Spidey 9/10
    In The Flesh - Not much to say about this one, it’s good. 7.5/10
    Slaves of The Witch-Queen - Nice catch by Busiek. 7/10
    You Get It - Hickman can be funny too 9/10

    I really dug this despite the silly 1000 numbering gimmick. So many top notch creators on board for this giving their unique spin on what makes Spider-Man special to all of us. If you dig anthology books, there’s a lot of good stuff here. Much stronger than the very blah ASM 900 as far as anniversary celebrations go. Also, no ads was a bonus!

    It's not perfect, but a lot of the stories are great. Some are even amazing.

    Gaiman is in full "saccharine but heartwarming" mode as only he can do it, and Hickman proves he can do a solid, funny self-parody. Those were the standouts for me.

    It's much better than the average anthology, but there are still some clunkers in there. Marvel really pried open its wallet for the art budget, though; this is (almost entirely) gorgeous.

    Anthologies are always a bit rough, so when a publisher manages to put together a mostly cohesive, quality one, it's nice. I'll quickly run through the stories:

    "Just Some Guy" is a fun, cute little story that I think captures some of why Spider-Man is who he is.

    "Sinister 60th" is actually my favorite story here. Call me a softy, but when all those people lined up to see Spider-Man on his deathbed, that made me a little emotional.

    "Spider-Man Vs. Conspirition" is probably my least favorite story here. It just doesn't really feel like it matters or says anything about Spider-Man as a character.

    "The Kid's Got a Good Eye" is a quiet story that is nicely subtle. I enjoyed it.

    There were at least 2 great stories. Most were pretty good. I think there was one, I didn't care for too much. Overall, a good Spider-Man read.

    Let's celebrate Spidey's 60th birthday and read this sudden AF #1000... Why is it 1000 in the first place? I honestly don't understand the logic. But who cares... So, about stories:

    1st story - Falcone/Cho - 8.5. It's really short, but nice. It has a message and the art is cool. Might be better, but it's an awesome opening for such a book.

    2nd story - Slott/Cheung - 10. Totally deserved 10. That's a brilliant story with a brilliant art. It's just something you wait from the comic like this. And it's not a typical story, it has a few unexpected moves. I'm really impressed.

    3rd story - Lannucci/Stegman - 6. That was a rather boring story especially after the tone was set by the previous two... The art isn't th more
