    Comic Vine - Corey 'Undeadpool' Schroeder Dec 10, 2014

    This is the most intense Spider-Verse issue yet, and for a series thats been this cranked up for this long and managed to SUSTAIN it, that is definitely saying something. Slotts managed to take an epic, far-reaching story and given it an intimate, personal feel that actually puts a lot of emotional investment in its massive cast. A cast that the artistic team makes look incredible in almost every single panel they appear in, balancing action with impactful character moments. If youre any kind of Spider-fan, you should be reading all of Spider-Verse, but if you can only check out one book, it should be this one. Read Full Review

    Comicosity - Aaron Long Dec 11, 2014

    Amazing Spider-Man #11 keeps the entertainment flowing in this excellent Spider-Verse event. Spider-Man super fans have got to be losing their minds over this one, as its quality is simply fantastic. Slott & Coipel are on fire and are showing how you can make mega events work within the scope of a corner of the Marvel U. This is an event done right and I definitely recommend you give Spider-Verse a shot. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - David Brooke Dec 10, 2014

    This issue starts off slow but delivers impeccably for a variety of audiences. It ends with an amazing action sequence and major ramifications on the event. Great stuff. Read Full Review

    Overall, this was another great issue of Spider-Verse. I might actually stick around once this event is over. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Danny Wall Dec 13, 2014

    The time was right to take away all the Spider-Mens' safety nets, and it introduces Solus as a real threat. The art, both pencils and coloring/effects, are beautiful, but the interactions between the Spideys are what really shines by taking advantage of what makes every Spider unique and mashing 'em up. Another key moment to this great storyline. Read Full Review

    Superior Spider-Talk - Dan Gvozden Dec 13, 2014

    Amazing Spider-Man #11 finally pits Peter against Otto and shakes up the "Spider-Verse" story enough to create real danger for the lead characters. Still, it gets bogged down in some unnecessary exposition and service to the spinoff books. Read Full Review

    Hyper Geeky - ClumsyG Dec 11, 2014

    One of my favorite scenes this issue involved Gwen Stacy's exchange with Parker. After apologizing for his over-protective nature, Stacey reveals she had been unable to protect the Parker of her universe. Things like that put plenty of things into perspective, adding new angles to classic stories. Read Full Review

    Good Kind Of Geek - Nikki Yuan Dec 11, 2014

    Overall, this issue is a good read that actually manages to push the story forward. The fight between ASM and SSM is awesome, and the pair up between two Ultimate Spider-Men in 1960's cartoon is hilarious. So far, the main event is kind of distracted, but it's still an excited event that lives up to the hype. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Dec 10, 2014

    Spider-Verse is rapidly shaping up to be Marvel's best event comic of 2014. Even though it occasionally gets bogged down in setting up tie-in books, ASM #10 is a tremendously fun read that delivers the Peter Parker/Otto Octavius showdown we've been waiting for. It also looks great and further builds up the threat of the Inheritors. It's nice to have an event that actually lives up to the hype. Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Dec 13, 2014

    I'm all in favor of tie-ins to Big Event comics. It helps to flesh out the story and it sells more comics. So why not indulge? But man, Marvel must have really come down hard on Dan Slott to mention all the tie-ins to Spider-Verse. I complained that the last issue had several pages dedicated to splitting characters off into the tie-ins, well this issue does the exact same thing, and even takes the time to check-in with a few of those previous tie-ins!

    Forces Of Geek - Atlee Greene Dec 15, 2014

    Sounds kind of silly but the humor coupled with the high stakes involved made the moment worth wild. I think it was time to increase the danger for our wall crawlers because having nowhere to hide will create even more tension as this event progresses. ASM #11 covers a lot of ground while setting up bigger things on the horizon. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Meagan Damore Dec 12, 2014

    As an event, "Spider-Verse" is spectacularly fun and "Amazing Spider-Man" #11 continues that trend, however formulaic the plot. Dan Slott and Olivier Coipel up the stakes with a dramatic death and a new baddie that -- hopefully -- will shake things up for the Spiders. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - David Pepose Dec 11, 2014

    While this comic feels clunky with the constant scene changes (in the case of Miles Morales and the TV Ultimate Spider-Man, whose sole purpose is setting up Spider-Verse Team-Up #2), there are just enough awesome moments to see Amazing Spider-Man through. Read Full Review

    We The Nerdy - Spencer Maxwell Dec 12, 2014

    Olivier Coipel handles the art, and it is incredible. His dark detail gives the perfect tone to the situation, but it's not overly dark where it's not suitable for the title. The environment of the Inheritors is gothic and bleak which portrays them in a more sinister light than Slott is able to. He reworks different characters from different art styles and makes them fit in this interpretation. He also does a phenomenal job of recreating the world ofthe60's era cartoon, which is humorous and stunning. The introduction of the different styles of some characters can be a little jarring at first, but the reader will get quickly acclimatized. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Herald - Bill Zeiders Dec 13, 2014

    We're about a third of the way through this event, and there have been some really cool moments and characters so far. I just wish it was shaping up to be a more consistent read. I will say that this one is a slight improvement over the last one, because at least something happens, but it suffers from sloppy execution. Read Full Review
