•  All that stands between MJ and Mysterio's ragtag crew and filming their climactic battle scene is...well, VULTURE, STEGRON, TARANTULA, KING COBRA, RHINO, and SCORPION!
•  If this is Mary Jane's last chance to realize her dreams, you can bet she's going to fight like a tiger--or a spider!
•  Will filming ever wrap? Will Mary Jane ever go home to the AMAZING SPIDER-MAN? And can Peter forgive her for her Hollywood team up?

    Word Of The Nerd - Edward Wendt Feb 24, 2020

    There is no question that The Amazing Mary Jane is a fun series. There also seems to need to be something more in order to keep this series going. The premise of having Mysterio trying to redeem himself as a movie director is fun, but has mostly been played out by this point. The Amazing Mary Jane #5 gives a bit of a boost to this concept, but there needs to be more to make this series work long-term. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Feb 19, 2020

    Shooting the Mysterio biopic only took a little less than half of a year on this side of the comic page. In the months to come, Mary Jane will return to New York for a little bit of time with her boyfriend and begin to promote the movie. Itll be interesting to see Williams distinct mutation of the rest of an actresss work on a big Hollywood motion picture. Read Full Review

    If you've been following this series then you will probably get a lot more out of this issue than I did and you may well find this an important addition to your collection. If you haven't been following this series I'd say give this a miss" without the previous issues building up the stakes there just doesn't seem enough in this issue to make it really resonate.

    The Amazing Mary Jane #5 finds its biggest strength in its difference from general Marvel fare. But when it turns towards action, the charm starts to fade. Read Full Review

    GWW - christopher scott Feb 19, 2020

    Overall, Amazing Mary Jane #5 brought together a good plot and some excitement in the end. The artwork was very bright, especially in the facial features of most of the characters. Unlike something grittier like Wolverine, the tone of the art and story were light and effervescent but didn't overdo it. The whole issue was a light indulgence and interesting view on more of MJ and her life. Read Full Review

    The Amazing Mary Jane #5 delivers exactly the sort of ending readers would reliably have predicted at the end of #1: a supervillain smashup to save the successful endeavor of Mary Jane and her new friend Mysterio. Read Full Review
