    Major Spoilers - Stephen Schleicher Dec 26, 2011

    I was really expecting to see Peter Parker in this issue, and was disappointed about halfway through when it was clear he wasn't going to appear. That being said, by the end of the issue, I had a better appreciation for what is currently driving Doctor Octopus and the rest of the Sinister Six to be the big bads on the block. Dan Slott continues to tell fantastic tales, and Humberto Ramos dazzles me with his art style, earning The Amazing Spider-Man #676 4.5 out of 5 Stars. Read Full Review

    Want to know the best part? HUMBERTO RAMOS IS BACK!!! I love me some Humberto and he rocks this issue to the core. His bizarre over-the-top style works perfectly with Slott’s story. I love how he pencils Doc Ock and M.O.D.O.K. plus nobody can ramp up an action scene like Ramos. The Sinister Six is a bigger than life team and Ramos’ drawing style is exactly the same way. With Ramos back and Slott at the helm, 2012 could be another year of the spider! Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Mat 'Inferiorego' Elfring Dec 21, 2011

    Slott and Ramos do it again. Another incredibly fun issue. You'll be glued to the page from the get-go, and one element I loved was the Zero Cannon, which just shoots you into space. As always, I loved Ramos' art on this issue, but I was a tad disappointed that there was no Spider-Man in this issue and a few C-List characters met their doom. Overall, this was an excellent read and I highly recommend it, even if it's your first time reading AMAZING SPIDER-MAN in quite some time. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Dean Stell Dec 22, 2011

    Jumping on point? This is a GREAT jumping on point. Even without Spider-Man appearing, it does a great job of establishing where the Spidey-villains are going in 2012. Read Full Review

    There is a lot of hype on the next issue of ASM with a new story arc involving Daredevil. This is an issue that will not get lost in the scuffle. Read Full Review

    Outer Realm Comics - Jason Dec 23, 2011

    Final Verdict: A good issue. The story features an effective hook with tight dialogue, vivid art with crisp colors, and is a great spot for new readers to jump on board. Read Full Review

    This comic was okay. I mean I liked the premise and all, but didn't enjoy the way it ended. For me, the wrong team won, and that can go a long way in souring the way you feel about a comic. A fan of Octopus and the Six would have enjoyed this comic because they won, but the Six utterly humbling the Intelligencia? I just don't think so... Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Dec 21, 2011

    Again, this issue is a little goofier than you might expect given the subject matter, but it still serves as an effective teaser for 2012 and a nice way to wrap up 2011. Read Full Review

    The Weekly Crisis - Grant McLaughlin Dec 26, 2011

    If you've been wanting to jump onto Amazing Spider-Man, this issue is for you. It might not feature its titular webhead, but it is right in line with the usual fun tone of the book and just so happens to set up what looks to be one of the major storylines of 2012. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - stephengervais Jan 15, 2012

    The concept for this issue showed great promise but the execution fell short. The story itself was entertaining particularly the banter amongst the group but the artwork was so dreadful it killed the story. Despite this I am hoping that this is a revitalization of the Sinister Six and that we do see more of them in 2012. Read Full Review
