    It's hard to not agree the "amazing" in the title is covered here. Read Full Review

    As comic artists go, Stuart Immonen is an international treasure. But that face is gonna take some getting used to. You'll know which one when you read the issue. Read Full Review

    Superior Spider-Talk - Mark Ginocchio May 10, 2017

    Amazing Spider-Man (vol. 4) #27 keeps things simple and keeps the engaging "Osborn Identity" storyline moving forward. This is the most consistently compelling this book has been in quite some time. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez May 12, 2017

    "The Osborn Identity" hasn't had the cleanest start but Amazing Spider-Man #27 quickly turned the story arc's fortunes around by hitting all the right beats to further Spider-Man and Green Goblin's rivalry to full-blown war. The various character dynamics made the war between Spider-Man and Green Goblin feel bigger. Having Stuart Immonen draw everything happening in this issue helped elevate Dan Slott's story to an even higher level. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Branden Murray May 15, 2017

    The AmazingSpider-Man #27 has some great action while making progress to the overall story(as the title settles to prepare for its Secret Empire crossover). However thethreat of the Green Goblin has felt hallow and impersonal throughout this arcand not much is done here to improve upon that.     Read Full Review

    The emotional connection doesn't sink as deeply as I'd like, but I'm still having fun watching Spider-Man fight the Green Goblin with giant mech-robots in a foreign country. That's just crazy enough to be mostly fun. Read Full Review

    Spider-Man continues on excellent trajectory since the ending of the Clone Conspiracy. Osborn's master plan and revelations are devious and entertaining. After the way Norman's identity was treated back in Superior, I'm really glad to see Slott picking up that thread and using it to showcase more of Osborn's batshit insanity. Loved Mockingbird's part, Silver Sable's revelation was interesting and believable, and I can't wait for the inevitable Spidey vs Goblin showdown. Also Immonen should never leave this book.

    This was the best issue of "Amazing" in quite a while. The opening pages establish a creepy atmosphere as Norman emerges prematurely from surgery, leaving him twisted and scarred. Seeing his face does a whole lot for the characterization of Norman, who seemed pretty nondescript in the first two parts of this arc. I like the interaction between Spidey and his amazing friends, Silver Sable and Mockingbird. The pace here seemed really tight, even though a whole lot doesn't happen in terms of plot advancement, if that makes any sense. And the Stuart Immonen art is just so above par. No offence to any artists who have been doing this book lately, but Immonen is in a different stratosphere. I can't wait for the next issue!

    Slott doing some good work and Immomen is great! Love these issues prepping the clash of Spidey and Osborn. Hope Slott can deliver a good finale!

    The Norman vs. Spidey saga is back in full force. Norman is so cool to see when he's much more calculating and focused. The art is great and the story was action packed and perfectly fine, but somehow Peter Parker funding a war just doesn't fully agree with me though, which is my only knock on the book and also just my opinion.

    This issue was pretty dope, art was good too. But in all honesty Norman Osborn is still a phuckin creep imo. Now he has an ugly @$$ face to go with it. If I was Pete, I'd shove a stick of dynamite up his butthole for what he did to Gwen Stacy's butthole and pretend Uncle Ben never taught me better. Now he be banging vampire ladies and releasing wannabe joker gas all up on these fools. In all seriousness though, this issue held my attention unlike some previous story arcs in this volume that I can't even remember anymore.

    Better than the previous issues of this story, but honestly I don't really find it anything special. Hope the finale is any better.

    A very simple and straight forward issue where we see the set up for the massive battle between Spidey and Osborne. I really love the art in this issue. While I'm not the biggest fan of this globe trotting Spidey and the worldwide setting I think this arc has been pretty entertaining!
