    Christos Gage writes a cohesive, funny script that captures these characters perfectly and never lags. Read Full Review

    Gorgeous looking, appropriately paced, fun team-up between Marvel's mascot and it's latest sweetheart. I am definitely excited for next issue. Read Full Review

    Shadowhawk's Shade - AJ Oct 14, 2014

    The art in this issue is by Giuseppe Camuncoli, with inks by Cam Smith, colours by Antonia Fabela and letters by Chris Eliopoulos. The art is pretty typical of the series, done in the Marvel house-style and I really don't have any complaints about any of it, though I will say that Giuseppe's Silk looks quite different from how she usually is, and the colours don't really seem to do her justice either. Still, by and large the art here is excellent, and that is what matters in the end. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - John Tuppen Oct 9, 2014

    This is without a doubt the strongest Amazing Spider-Man has been since before Superior started to feel like a worn concept. The breath of fresh air provided by Christos Gage has brought to life something in Amazing Spider-Man that is as compelling as it is fun. It is with a heavy heart then that he is only on board for this single issue. Dan Slott is back writing in Amazing Spider-Man #8 so enjoy this as an Amazing one off. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Oct 8, 2014

    All in all this is a good comic, albeit a bit schizophrenic since it's split nearly down the middle with two unconnected stories. That said, it's good fun and the art is top notch. Read Full Review

    Comicosity - John Ernenputsch Oct 12, 2014

    The strengths of Amazing Spider-Man #7are also its biggest faults, as both stories are thoroughly entertaining, but one can't help but wish there was more of each. The way the creative team was able to tell the first meeting of Peter and Kamala while keeping the Spider-Verse momentum going was impressive. Even more impressive is that they were able to do so with the biggest complaint being that there should have been more of these stories. With that said, there will be more of Ms. Marvel in the next issue, and Spider-UK seems poised to play a big role in the coming months, so there's not much to complain about. Read Full Review

    We The Nerdy - Josh McCullough Oct 13, 2014

    Camuncoli handles art duties for both segments and his art looks great. I always felt he suited the darker story of Superior Spider-Man although his art looks a lot brighter here and fits the lighter tone of the team-up story. He depicts Kamalas powers very well and all the super-hero action looks fantastic, hopefully hell get to provide more of this in the next issue. When it comes to the back-up though he switches back to his darker style and it suits the story perfectly. I almost wish he was doing art duties for the upcoming event as he draws the other universe Spider-Men very well and his style of art suits the darker story being told. Heres hoping he gets to do some more art for the event somewhere down the line. Read Full Review

    Superior Spider-Talk - Dan Gvozden Oct 8, 2014

    Amazing Spider-Man #7 is a fun team-up with wonderful characterization. It amusingly and hauntingly builds the path towards "Spider-Verse" while filling out all the new characters that will be involved in that epic. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - David Pepose Oct 8, 2014

    But as I was saying before, the major problem with this comic? It's got two great stories, but only one can win out. Slott's Spider-Verse story, with its heightened stakes and fun new character, easily wins out over the Kamala Khan crossover, which feels like a bit of a wasted opportunity due to Ms. Marvel's undeniable appeal. Combined with the fact that Kamala gets 12 pages of this issue and Spider-UK only gets eight, and something feels off here. Still, while the pacing of this comic may feel a bit unsatisfactory, the actual content and execution is superb - even with its flaws, this might be one of the better issues of Amazing Spider-Man in quite some time.

    Comic Vine - Corey 'Undeadpool' Schroeder Oct 8, 2014

    Its refreshing, after a large build-up and delivery of new supervillain(s) to get a nice, quick story with a relatively small cast and an extremely welcome teamup from Ms. Marvel. The two characters work amazingly (pun intended) well together, and I honestly hope this isnt the last we see of her and Spideys adventures. What Im also hoping for is more followup on what Ana-Maria was saying to Peter as I think itd be a great, subtle development to his character. We dont need a total system overhaul (though SUPERIOR SPIDEY was fun while it lasted), but a small change here and there would go a long way. Oh and the acknowledgement of Spidey and Carol Danvers' odd, abbreviated romance was another thing I truly appreciated. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Danny Wall Oct 11, 2014

    The Bottom Line: Although the main story feels like a departure from the regular events of the series, that's actually a bit of a breath of fresh air. The ongoing story arc is left to a new Spidery-character, but it relies more on the tone and shock value than genuine character-building. At least we learn a little bit more about these events to carry us on into future issues. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Oct 8, 2014

    All in all, this is an eventful and entertaining issue, but the Spider-Man/Ms. Marvel team-up might have benefited from being published on its own in a completed form. Read Full Review

    Good Kind Of Geek - Nikki Yuan Oct 9, 2014

    Other than the dark side, the issue is mainly fun from having Spider-Man and Ms. Marvel teaming up. I just hope the issue can focus more on the team up, and that Spider-UK story should be on its own in Edge of Spider-Verse issues. Read Full Review

    Nerds Unchained - Jeremy Radick Oct 10, 2014

    So, it's a slight issue overall, but it's one that is enjoyable, and I'm looking forward to more shenanigans with Spidey and Ms.Marvel next issue. Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Oct 11, 2014

    Slott pushes all of the interesting developments in Peter's life to the side " Cindy Moon, Anna Maria & Parker Industries " so that they can focus on an all-together boring story involving some old Ms. Marvel villain and one of those Inhuman eggs. Considering Spider-Verse is right around the corner, I wish Marvel had given Slott time to wrap up or at least explore some of his own plots instead of this Ms. Marvel team-up. Read Full Review

  • 7.0 - Chase Magnett Oct 8, 2014

    Amazing Spider-Man #7 is a fun double feature. Both the A and the B-story should delight plenty of fans (although the B-story may horrify even more). This is a Spider-Man story at its least serious in direct juxtaposition to what seems to be the very dark tone of Spider-Verse. For now theres plenty of space for quips, smackdowns, and team ups though and Gage knows how to write a fun-loving webslinger with the best of them. Read Full Review

    Infinite Comix - Joey Ulfsrud Oct 14, 2014

    There's really not much to say overall about Amazing Spider-Man #7. There is some fun to be had and the art is nice, but the fun is fleeting and there is very little story to benefit from the somewhat snappy dialogue. Read Full Review
