    Kabooooom - Brandon Griffin Jan 6, 2016

    Amazing Spider-Man #6 fires on all cylinders, gearing readers up for the first big story arc of this new and exciting run. Slott always starts off his biggest ideas in great dramatic fashion. Sometimes they don't pan out so flawlessly by the end of them, but that doesn't take anything away from the stimulating beginning. Hopefully, Slott has learned from his previous missteps and this direction for the character was molded in a way that allows him to tell a tale that finishes on par with its start. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Jan 5, 2016

    The new volume of Amazing Spider-man is quickly eclipsing the previous one. Rarely has Dan Slott's Spider-Man saga felt this focused, both in terms of is visual style and the emphasis on Peter Parker's personal struggles. Having Mister Negative, Cloak and Dagger back in the picture just adds to the appeal. Read Full Review

    Superior Spider-Talk - Dan Gvozden Jan 1, 2016

    Amazing Spider-Man #6 is a solid introductory issue to this series second storyline, featuringing the return of Mr. Negative and Cloak & Dagger. It is also a huge improvement on previous issues of this series as it personalizes the conflicts, grounds readers in Peter's new status quo, and settles down in a singular location. Plus, this is the dramatic debut of new artist Matteo Buffagni, whose pencils go a far way to bring the characters of this book to life. Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Jan 9, 2016

    This was a solid, entertaining issue to kick off the new storyline. We get a strong introduction to both Mr. Negative and the new Cloak & Dagger, so the stage is set. Mostly, though, we spend time with Peter Parker and get a wider view of his new life. I'm definitely in favor of the Parker Industries scenes, so I liked seeing the man operate. Hopefully Slott will find the time to spend more time with Peter's new girlfriend (at least I think she's his girlfriend). Slott always packs his issues with a lot of plot and story, but sometimes he should slow down and smell the roses. Read Full Review

    Comicsverse - Sean Bartley Jan 6, 2016

    AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #6 is certainly a step down from the highs of the previous arc, but Slott has earned more than enough good-will to give him the benefit of the doubt. Not every issue of any comic book can be filled with the character development, emotional depth and fun that Dan Slott has consistently managed to infuse in to this series, and given some of the developments in the prior arc, we can rest assured that big things are on the horizon for Spider-Man.

    Now, the book just seems like an Iron Man type of deal, with just a different costume, an idea that seems to havealso recently confused Mary Jane Watson. Read Full Review
