    The Amazing Spider-Man is quickly shaping up to be one of the stronger Secret Empire tie-ins, though this issue's strengths have less to do with Marvel's latest crossover event and more with the ways in which it furthers several of the series' key plot threads. With top-notch art from Stuart Immonen, a nuanced look at the warring sides of Peter Parker's life and the grand return of Otto Octavius, there's plenty for ASM fans to chew on here.

    A Secret Empire tie-in kicks off with a nice showdown between Spider-Man and the newest version of Doc Ock, so at least this issue has that going for it. I hope the rest of the tie-in is this good. Read Full Review

    The Amazing Spider-Man #29 lays a strong foundation for this new story arc that promises to tell us who the rightful ruler of Parker Industries is. The battle between our web slinging hero and the mayhem of one of his classic rivals is on, and fans of the series will I'm sure be thrilled. If you're looking for a good place to pick this title up anew, there is no better time than the present. Read Full Review

    Superior Spider-Talk - Dan Gvozden Jun 28, 2017

    Amazing Spider-Man (vol. 4) #29 emphasizes Peter Parker's fickle nature to a fault, but contains enough witty writing and delicious visuals, headed by superstar artist Stuart Immonen, that this "Secret Empire" story gets a shaky start on the right foot. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Jul 2, 2017

    Amazing Spider-Man #29 did a good job of using the Secret Empire setting to further the rivalry between Spider-Man and Doctor Octopus. The developments of Secret Empire strike home for Peter Parker as Dan Slott and Christos Gage push the CEO of Parker Industries into a corner. Doctor Octopus' proposal to Spider-Man should lead to an even better next issue as we learn why Peter hasn't shown up in recent issues of Secret Empire. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Nick Nafpliotis Jun 28, 2017

    What starts as a great issue fizzles out considerably at the end due to some contrived script decisions (but at least Doc Ock looks all types of awesome). Read Full Review
