•  Gwen Stacy is back in the land of the living and in league with The Jackal.
•  But why? She's not evil. She's not being mind-controlled. What would push the one of the most beloved characters in Marvel history to join one of Spider-Man's worst villains?!

    And those final pages"oh man. They will definitely have you screaming along with Peter at the top of your lungs"or maybe that's just me. Either way, I'm not allowed in that coffee shop anymore. But event tie-ins as good as this one can have a place on my pull list anytime. Read Full Review

    Amazing Spider-Man (vol. 4) #23 highlights the appeal of the clone stories in the Spider-Man mythos, namely that Peter is forced to face his past mistakes and relationships in a way that challenges and illuminates what makes him both special and damaged. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Jan 24, 2017

    Amazing Spider-Man #23 is a solid extension of the events that took place in The Clone Conspiracy #4. Dan Slott and Christos Gage are able to deliver on the potential of what would happen if Peter Parker reunited with Gwen Stacy. At the same time, this issue highlights the weakness of The Clone Conspiracy not spotlighting other characters like Gwen enough during the course of the story. Gwen's backstory, specifically, should've been a bigger focus in these tie-in issues to make her reunion with Peter would be a more impactful to the overall event. Because of that unless you are a die-hard Spider-Man fan who must buy everything related to The Clone Conspiracy, Amazing Spider-Man #23 is a passable tie-in issue. Read Full Review

    The decision to focus so little attention on the big reunion between Peter Parker and the Stacys in The Clone Conspiracy itself is a bit odd, to say the least. And while this issue is eager to make up for that omission, it doesn't prove entirely satisfying. Read Full Review
