    A Spider-Man vs. Doc Ock confrontation -- just like old times. The only difference is that one works for Hydra, which happens to have conquered the U.S. government. Read Full Review

    It seems like the Parker Industries era is coming to an end soon, and I'm going to miss it. But it's going out on top. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Jeremy Matcho Jul 16, 2017

    Amazing Spider-Man has been consistently good for a long time now. Dan Slott has worked his magic to make this title a must-read. To top it off, it's hard to ask for a better job in the art department than what's given this issue. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Branden Murray Jul 17, 2017

    Spider-Man/Peter and his corporation are in for some trouble down the road and the ground workfor the ivory tower to come crumbling down is laid here in this issue. Despite the tie-in status between art and afew of the important story beats present this issue is worth a look. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Alexander Jones Jul 17, 2017

    Despite falling into the same potholes as previous installments, "Amazing Spider-Man" #30 is the best single issue of the comic in years thanks to Slott's deft writing and Immonen's slick and vivid art. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Jul 15, 2017

    In short, Slott and Immonen and the creative team have worked really hard to make the balance between Spider-Man story and crossover story work within their framework, but there isn't enough to the main story other than the shock value. Amazing Spider-Man #30 has some excellent art, some wonderful Peter Parker moments, heavy-duty Spidey/Ock rivalry and uses the tone of Secret Empire to good effect but still getting dragged down by it.

    Superior Spider-Talk - Dan Gvozden Jul 12, 2017

    This issue of Amazing Spider-Man might be a bit of a mixed bag, tossed around by "Secret Wars" and shallow ongoing characterization, but the art team continues to stun and a late-game twist promises an exciting next issue. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Nick Nafpliotis Jul 12, 2017

    Unfortunately, the script for Amazing Spider-Man #30 leaves much to be desired. Let's hope this is just a bump in the road for the title and not sign of things to come. Read Full Review
