Down on your luck Peter Parker is back, for good or ill. New York has changed, and so has Peter - but entering a new phase of his Spider-Man life isn't easy; neither are new relationships OR new foes. Peter Parker is not the Spider-Man you remember, but why is he taking his fight to THE DAILY BUGLE? And what happened to PARKER INDUSTRIES?

    Peter Parker shines when he is dealing with the consequences of his actions and this issue is no different. You feel for Parker as he has to deal with another tragedy in his life, but you still root for him to overcome and there is some hope in this issue that fans might enjoy. Read Full Review

    It was great to see the montage of Spidey helping NYC, as it gives the reader a Spidey-sense of where things are headed. I enjoyed the use of bridging text that helped cut scenes wonderfully, along with the great action towards the end. I also think Dan Slott writes members of the Fantastic Four very well, and he probably should consider writing more of the Familys stories once they return to comics. I am looking forward to whats next. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Oct 29, 2017

    There are still a lot of questions as to what is next for Peter Parker but Amazing Spider-Man #790 is the start of clearing a few things up. After how Peter was still dealing with the shock of his decision to shut down Parker Industries the ending of this issue was a good step forward for him. At the same time, Dan Slott and Christos Gage were able to elevate a low-level villain, Clash, in the process. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Oct 25, 2017

    Peter Parker is back in a more classic status quo thanks to Marvel Legacy. For the most part, that's working in Amazing Spider-Man's favor. It's fun to see the inverted dynamic between Peter Parker and Spider-Man, and the book continues to look spectacular. However, between the forced rivalry between Spidey and Human Torch and the worry that the series is trying a little too hard to leave behind the Parker Industries era, there is some cause to worry about where ASM is heading.

    Regardless of how you feel about Dan Slott's long tenure as Spider-Scribe, Stuart Immonen has undoubtedly been one of the strongest Spidey artists of the last decade. He makes the web-slinger sing, even with a dumb glowing spider symbol. Immonen gets to draw the classic costume again and its dazzling. Read Full Review

    Amazing Spider-Man #790 is a fabulous example of simple storytelling, being a brilliant introductory point for new readers. It's not likely to go down as a must read, but nonetheless it's still an entertaining yarn, giving us an explosive encounter between Spidey and Human Torch. It also continues to reflect upon the emotional aftermath of Parker Industry's collapse, leaving us with a surprising twist near the end. Read Full Review

    Superior Spider-Talk - Mark Ginocchio Oct 25, 2017

    Amazing Spider-Man #790 dives deeper into the "fall" of Peter Parker. The issue does a great job of integrating both classic Spider-Man elements with clever twists on these old stories. However, this story could use a compelling villain to really kick it into the next gear. Read Full Review
