    AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #799 is easily the best issue of the "Go Down Swinging" arc thus far. It's filled with some incredible action, and does a great job of highlighting the villain. Read Full Review

    Slott knows how to make Norman Osborn scary, but teaming him with Carnage makes them terrifying. Slott plays on those fears in a satisfying continuation that features great, menacing art from Immonen. Read Full Review

    Amazing Spider-Man #799 is the strongest chapter of "Go Down Swinging." Dan Slott did a great job building Red Goblin as an unstable threat to the entire Marvel Universe. The personal revelations for the Osborn family made the story around Red Goblin stronger. And with the cliffhanger ending Slott has set the stage for an exciting final battle between Spider-Man and Norman Osborn's Red Goblin. Read Full Review

    Man superhero fight issue gets too bogged down in Osborn family drama. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Apr 23, 2018

    The first 2 issues of this arc were great and this issue wasn't terrible by any means BUT it seemed a bit rushed to wrap it up by issue 800 and possibly Slott's last issue ( not sure on that one).  AND Peter only stops being Spider-man for one issue and comes back to fight him in 800 also seems silly. It makes this issue seems less important and thrown together.  Personally, I see Anti-Spider happening next issue, which is technically NOT Spider-man if we go by semantics, and he takes down Red Goblin leaving a trace of it in his Grandson for a future story to come. But, we shall see. Read Full Review

    We're ready for a big finale but issues like this feel more like they're biding time for the big round number rather than revving up the story in wholly meaningful ways. Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Apr 21, 2018

    Despite a really cool villain, despite this being Dan Slott's grand finale, this Red Goblin short story can't help but feel anti-climatic. Not a lot is happening, and what does happen feels pretty run-of-the-mill. Read Full Review

    Superior Spider-Talk - Mark Ginocchio Apr 18, 2018

    Amazing Spider-Man #799 certainly keeps the drama and tension of the Red Goblin at a fever pitch, but the larger "Going Down Swinging" story gets knocked off track by an overabundance of tertiary characters, exposition and been there/done that plot twists. Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison Apr 20, 2018

    Amazing Spider-Man #799 is far from the worst issue of ASM that Ive read in the past few months. However, it has a lot of squandered potential. This could have been an awesome fight issue. However, the battle was held off for too long, and the execution was disappointing. I can recommend it to the devout Spider-Fan, but I wouldnt bother if youre not in that category. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Ryoga Kazehino Apr 29, 2018

    Reading ASM #799 is like watching a WWE House Show where the star wrestler beats a jobber to make him look good before a Pay-Per-View event. This is 2018 and such a dynamic just isn't good anymore. My confidence of #800 has reached a new low and Dan Slott and his team would have to pull a successful Hail Mary to make the end of this arc worth that historical number. Read Full Review

    Really solid issue. Everything was good. The stakes felt high, the red goblin is treated as a huge threat and it's getting ready for the big showdown. Although the cliffhanger was a tad corny for me, it didn't take too much away from the story and could be turned around with an interesting plot in the next issue.

    Slott's ASM has often been hit or miss for me, but he sure is finishing strong.
    It was also great to see Silk again.

    Another very very good issue from the 'Go Down Swinging' arc. It is probably the best arc for the Amazing Spiderman series that i have read in a long time. It had a twist i never saw coming, a good pace and a Joker-esque Red Goblin.

    It had a good art by Stuart Immonen and a terrific colouring by Marte Gracia. Just wish Stuart Immonen's drawings had more detail at the background. Other than that i had no problem with the art.

    The only problem i had with this book is how overstuffed it felt. I felt like Silk, Miles Morales, Human Torch and Clash were unnecessary to the plot and the whole book. They did not affect the plot in anyway. Maybe Human Torch and Clash atleast had the abilities to defeat a symbiote, but the other more

    Spidey's Amazing Friends swing into action to try and stop the Red Goblin. Their efforts are an objective failure but dang if they aren't entertaining as all get-out. With a superb supporting roster, an excellent plot, and a mother of a twist ending, this issue is tops for story. The art is cover-to-cover gorgeous, taking full advantage of all the script's opportunities. I detect a dip in quality when it comes to dialogue, though, particularly the Goblin's voice. Compared to the high drama of the plot, the spoken words come out curiously flat and forgettable.

    Still going as strong as before, Slott is definitely going all in. Great issue and I am very excited about the next issue.

    I must admit. I have never been much of a Spider-Man fan. Honestly, he doesn't do much for me. I get a lot of people relate to the plucky down on the luck thing but that got old for me really quickly. Honestly, I am not sure if my lack of interest in Spider-man is because of who he is or because Dan Slott has been writing the character for forever and I am not that interested in Slott's writing of this character.

    All that being said I actually really liked this story. I like the Red Goblin and think he should stick around as Spiderman villain. I am a fan of characters progressing in story and place in life and Green Goblin getting an upgrade in threat sounds good to me. This book looked and felt good and for the first time, it l more

    After last issue kicked this conflict into overdrive, Slott pulls back here in an issue that focuses more on Pete's Amazing Friends than Spidey himself. It's pretty good, though after all the spider-events over the last few years, none of the Spider-family really excite me. But the Immonen art is beautiful, and next issue looks like it'll be crazy. So, yeah.

    Welcome to the Oblivion Bar where the first round is on me and the pretzels are free! Be warned: like the pickled eggs at the bar, this issue is going to get SPOILED rotten.

    So, Spidey is out of commission AND is not supposed to physically be Spider-man anymore or the Red Goblin will kill everyone Peter knows. Peter does what every kid would do and play on the semantics of what was said and “he” won’t “physically” be Spider-man but will organize others to “hide ja kids, hide ja wife’s” for him like Johnny Storm, Clash, Silk, Miles, and Agent Venom.

    After Peter organizes his crew to help protect his friends and family, Peter eventually finds out the J. Jonah is the one who spilled the beans on his ident more
