    Monkeys Fighting Robots - Brandon J. Griffin Jan 26, 2018

    Slott looks to be going balls-to-the-wall with his final stretch writing Spidey. ASM #794 is a classic feeling Spider-Man comic that effectively cranks the ridiculous up. Read Full Review

    We The Nerdy - Kyle Simcox Jan 29, 2018

    Amazing Spider-Man #794 is a beautiful and exciting book. Its hard to believe that were nearing the end of an era as Dan Slotts exit draws ever closer. While Scorpios exit is quick, it's a blast to follow and he needs to make way for the threat that is Norman Osborn. The Goblin is returning and Spider-Man isnt ready for whats to come.

    Shoot The Breeze Comics - Victor Neal Jan 28, 2018

    ASM #794 reads like butter, looks great, and gives fans some sweet teases for the future. It is a solid, textbook springboard issue, and I can't wait to see what's in store for Spidey in the coming issues! Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Jan 24, 2018

    Amazing Spider-Man #794 boasts a strong premise that often feels constrained by the limitations of the single issue format. Perhaps more could have been accomplished with the return of Scorpio, but it's hard to complain too much when a comic is able to achieve such a strong balance between dramatic tension and goofy comedy and deliver such eye-popping visuals.

    Comicsverse - Matt Attanasio Jan 25, 2018

    The beautiful pages of AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #794 don't excuse it from being an issue of filler. You'll likely be left wanting more of the side plot by the end, but it's meant to leave you craving future stories. Read Full Review

    GWW - Eric Butler Jan 26, 2018

    I'm loving this run and I am sad to hear that Dan Slott is leaving soon, the art is fantastic and some of the best in the Spider-man history. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Charles Martin Jan 24, 2018

    This issue badly wants to be a "hop on board, things are getting great" point for once-bitten twice-shy Spider-fans. Though the new story arc has promise, I'm not sure that the campy, under-cooked cheese of this Scorpio yarn is the most tempting entrée for readers who feel burned out on Dan Slott's Spider-Man. The next issue might bring us into "OMG you gotta read this" territory … but we're not there yet. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Jan 29, 2018

    Amazing Spider-Man #794 did a good job in kicking of the beginning of the end for Dan Slott's run on the series. With a few plotlines left to wrap up Slott began to do so by addressing the threat of Scorpio. In the process Slott was able to highlight the growth Spider-Man has gone through under his supervision. While the development in the Norman Osborn subplot did not hit like Slott intended it to one can only hope "Threat Level: Red" will end up being a strong end to such a long running creative run.

    Comic Watch - Ryoga Kazehino Jan 28, 2018

    This short starter to Threat Level Red gives us a brief, sidesplitting story between Spider-Man and Zodiac, before introducing us to the real plot. The coming of Red Goblin is something to wait for the next issue over. As this is Dan Slott's final run on Spider-Man before leaving the character for good, here is hoping he brings in the spark that makes his other famous works like the Superior Spider-Man into Threat Level Red and makes it one of the most memorable Spider-Man stories of all time.

    Superior Spider-Talk - Mark Ginocchio Jan 25, 2018

    Amazing Spider-Man #794 begins the runup to Dan Slott's final arc on the title, but utterly suffers from a lack of urgency and drama in its execution. Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Jan 27, 2018

    The new issue is fine, but it's a really boring way to set up the future stories to come. Read Full Review
