• WHO HEEDS THE HAMMERHEAD?! Not Spidey, apparently.
•  The criminal underworld of New York City is on fire and Spidey and the Wraith hope to contain it. Tough luck, you two.

    Going back down to a street-level crime story is a great take, and the creative team handles it very well. Spider-Man fans won't want to miss Spiral this week. Read Full Review

    Still, while this probably won't be on anyone's top ten Spider-Man stories ever, its confident well-executed story is a ton of fun to read, and I'll be excited to get my mitts on part three. Read Full Review

    Gerry Conway's grasp of Spider-Man's voice is nearly unparalleled but Amazing Spider-Man #17.1 is confused about its protagonist and has been paired with artwork completely discordant with its themes and atmosphere. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Danny Wall Apr 24, 2015

    An intriguing look at one of Spider-Man's spin-off characters, the Wraith, but although we get to see her argue with her boss and with Spider-Man, we don't really know much about her. Nor do we really know much about the stakes of the supposed gang war that's happening between the villains. It's all fine, and it's worth a character study, but we'll need a lot more if we are to rise above some fairly typical tropes of the genre and of Spider-Man's general milieu. The "plus" in the grade is for allowing me to info-bomb some ethics. Enjoy. Read Full Review
