    Superior Spider-Talk - Dan Gvozden Dec 17, 2014

    Amazing Spider-Man Annual #1 is completely inconsequential and disposable for those readers who are hooked on the plot heavy "Spider-Verse." Those looking for a good laugh and some wonderful character moments will get a lot out of the "I Can't Help Myself" main story. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza Dec 12, 2014

    As an anthology of Spider-Man-related stories, "Amazing Spider-Man Annual" #1 is great. As an Annual, however, it falls a little short. Rather than giving readers an extra-long single story, the conclusion to an event or the kickoff to a different event, "Amazing Spider-Man Annual" #1 seems like the recipient of the Inventory Story Drawer Cleanout Award. The adventures here are fun and upbeat, but nothing in these pages is particularly memorable. It's a nice example of Spider-Man comics, but not a must-have or must-read. Read Full Review

    I'm in no way saying this is the worst "Spidey-book" I've ever read, just that it might actually be the worst one since our heroes triumphant return. For such a classic hero, Marvel could've done a lot better and exuded a lot more effort. I'll even go as far to say as this wasn't wholly the creative teams' fault " for such an uncanny collaboration of writers, artists, and colorists, they put together a quite decent anthology picking up on some of the best traits our favorite wall-crawler has to offer; they did highlight the best traits of Spider-Man. However this fell just short of" well, I guess my own personal expectations. Once again, I see these annual editions as a chance to highlight and pay homage to a hero " where they're at, where they've been, and where they're going. And while Amazing Spider-Man Annual #01 is a rather messy attempt to do this, it's a step in the right(ish) direction. M Read Full Review
