    Comicsverse - Sean Bartley Nov 5, 2015

    While AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #2 floundered a bit and the series appeared as though it might be slipping in to a very boring pattern of teaming Spider-Man up with a hero, placing them in some new vehicle and having hem chase Zodiac around them, AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #3 rights the ship with an emotional tale that packs a serious punch. If the quality of this issue is any indication, we've got a lot of good to look forward to from the AMAZING SPIDER-MAN team. That said, the sooner this Zodiac saga ends, the better. Read Full Review

    This issue manages to both take advantage of Peter's new status quo while honoring his more humble roots, and that's exactly the sort of balance this series needs to achieve. Read Full Review

    Good Kind Of Geek - Nikki Yuan Nov 5, 2015

    While it's still difficult to get used to Peter's new status quo, I'm glad this issue is here to help me around. This is really a new era for Spider-Man, and I'm glad I'm a part to embrace it. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Nov 10, 2015

    Amazing Spider-Man #3 continues the strong momentum this latest volume this Marvel flagship title has built since the first issue. While I was not the biggest fan of the rich Peter Parker concept when I first heard it Dan Slott and Giuseppe Camuncoli have convinced me to buy in. Slott has delivered on keeping Peter Parker grounded even with all his success. The use of Johnny Storm in this issue was a good way to drive that point home. With Zodiac attacking SHIELD and Norman Osborn lurking in the shadows there are also plenty of things to be excited for in the coming months for Amazing Spider-Man. Knowing that has me even more excited for what is come from the minds of Dan Slott and Giuseppe Camuncoli. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Danny Wall Nov 12, 2015

    The weightier part of the issue is all about the Zodiac, actually. Interestingly, the Zodiac does involve the fabled Zodiac Key, establishing this "new" Zodiac is indeed a new iteration of our long-standing Avengers villain team. Like Spider-Man, however, the team has been re-envisioned on a global scale. Whereas for Spidey, it's striking a chord that still feels a bit fish-out-of-water, for the Zodiac, it feels like a true way to scale up their profile and power. We're still getting a slow build up for the organization, which actually helps to take them seriously. We may have to add some more significant and personalized characters to them, however, to really help us feel for them. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - David Pepose Nov 5, 2015

    Dan Slott gives a fun new wrinkle to the Spider-Torch rivalry, as Johnny doesn't just try to beat the tar out of Peter in his own building, but they have to do so without revealing Peter's secret identity to his employees. Unfortunately, the fighting feels a little too short, with Peter being way too blase about some major property damage. But it's worth it, just to see all the familiar faces Slott is bringing back, with poor Clayton Cole trying his best to protect his workmates. Read Full Review

    Superior Spider-Talk - Mark Ginocchio Nov 4, 2015

    Amazing Spider-Man (vol. 4) #3 is a fun, self-contained comic that keeps things simple while simultaneously moving some longer-term subplots forward. There are a few hiccups in the comic's narrative structure, and the book's featured antagonist still lacks in the malice-department, but the core Spider-Man book hasn't been this consistent in a while.

    Nerds Unchained - Jeremy Radick Nov 4, 2015

    Slott and Camuncoli continue to craft a fun and engaging new direction for Spider-Man, and though I think it may be time to merge the adventure with a little emanation of the main character, it's hard to argue with the amount of fun on display. Read Full Review

    Kabooooom - Brandon Griffin Nov 5, 2015

    The future of this book hopefully takes us to new places like it's supposed to and not a rehashing old characters into new roles just because they were gone for a while. Overall, Amazing Spider-Man #3 a pretty fun read, and there are enough pros to forgive the book's cons. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - David Brooke Nov 4, 2015

    This issue lacks the humor that made the first two issues so much fun to read. The plot progresses sure, and the Fantastic Four bits are heartfelt, but it otherwise falls flat. Read Full Review
