    Kabooooom - Matt Morrison May 31, 2018

    This book is as gloriously over-the-top and ridiculous as I feared. It is also shockingly good, and I'm not ashamed to say the final pages brought tears to my eyes. Read Full Review

    GWW - Percy Waelchl May 31, 2018

    Rarely do comics create the sense of adrenaline that an action movie climax can, but Slott achieves that here. While the “Go Down Swinging” arc may have dragged at times, this issue grabs a hold of the reader and never let's go. Any superhero fan looking for that next great story will find it within this landmark issue. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - David Pepose May 30, 2018

    It's unclear that Spider-Man will ever find true peace - which is usually one of the first casualties of drama - but with Amazing Spider-Man #800, Slott and company stick the landing magnificently, finding a truly cathartic solution to Peter's never-ending calculus of power and responsibility.

    Multiversity Comics - Robbie Pleasant Jun 1, 2018

    A fantastic conclusion to the "Go Down Swinging" story arc, with Dan Slott pulling out all the stops, making full use of the supporting cast, and including several timely callbacks to classic Spider-Man stories. Each artist adds a unique touch to their piece, but the issue flows well from one part to the next. A must-read for Spider-Man fans. Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison May 30, 2018

    If youve not been paying attention to this series in a while well, you wont feel that lost, but Id still give it a pass. If you absolutely must have Amazing Spider-Man #800, well you were going to buy it no matter what I said and more power to you. I understand the compulsion to buy a landmark issue like this. That said, even if youre lukewarm on Slotts ASM, I wouldnt cough up the 10 bucks to buy this book. Its just not that good, and thats the risk you run with a price point like this. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Jun 3, 2018

    When it focused on the battle between Spider-Man and Green Goblin, Amazing Spider-Man #800 was at its best. Unfortunately everything around that involving those outside our main stars, particularly J. Jonah Jameson, Doctor Octopus and the Symbiotes, dragged "Go Down Swinging" down. It does not help that Amazing Spider-Man #800 was priced at $9.99. That cover price just guaranteed that, rather than being a celebratory milestone, this was a comic book that should only be picked up by those who have read the entirety of Dan Slott's Spider-Man run. And even then Amazing Spider-Man #800 is hard to recommend given all the problems with the story of "Go Down Swinging." Read Full Review

    The Beat - Alexander Jones May 31, 2018

    I think bad is probably too harsh for the entry, but mediocre seems like a fair assessment. I would say unless you are heavily invested in The Amazing Spider-Man #800 this comic embodies the attributes to make it a SKIP. Read Full Review

    This was a great send-off from Slott. See Bendis? This is how you do a final issue. And I haven't felt this sad for a comic book character's death in a long time. But it is great to see that Spidey's relationships with Otto and Eddie have now changed. And Carnage seems to be death.

    Artwork was great from every artist. I really have no issues with this. Final battle with Gobby was a bith meh, but this was still a great ending to a great storyline.

    An epic conclusion to Slott's run on Amazing Spider-Man. This really tied together so many elements of his run, with awesome moments from Doctor Octopus and Flash Thompson. I have loved every moment of him as Agent Anti-Venom, and his developments this issue were very well done. I'm not a huge fan of a child being bonded with a Carnage symbiote, but this issue resolved it well. I really loved Jameson's attempts at redemption throughout this story, in the short time he's known Peter's identity it has already led to many great stories. I liked the way Peter outsmarted Norman Osborn, it was a smart way to get himself out of an otherwise hopeless situation. After this massive issue I'm curious what is left for #801, but I will certainly be look more

    An incredible issue, as well as incredible end to this great arc (which was definitely the best one we've had in quite some time). There's plenty of emotional moments, plenty of 'wow' moments, a lot of cameos and other references to some classic stories. The tension is felt throughout the whole book, which was fantastic, especially considering it's length. There's barely any ads, so you get a huge story in a single book. Is it worth 10 bucks? I'd say so. So many great moments here, that I am pretty sure this story will go down as one of the greatest modern Spidey's stories, if not of all time. There's a lot of things teased about for the future, which is also a great way to keep the momentum going. And not to mention the art - all of the ar more

    Great stuff. This was more of a greatest hits journey with the Amazing Spider-man artists as it was the finale against Red Goblin. That was a bit underwhelming but Slott still delivered plenty of stories and cameos. Worth the admission ticket.

    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.

    And that’s a wrap with Dan Slott. And let me tell you, it was an exciting ride and incorporated so many elements from his time on the book which made it truly amazing. It was a great issue 800 that any Spider Fan or Slott fan would be pleased to read. Let’s swing on in to this 80 page behemoth!

    The issue opens with Spider-Man playing clean up after last issue. If you remember, Red Goblin laid waste to all of the web-heads friends leaving Flash to heal them up with his Anti-Venom. Spider-Man checks on his friends and swings off to Alchem-x (t more

    This is a good read. Although there feels like some lost opportunities on certain things, there were plenty of great moments and a true display of how great his supporting cast is. It flowed well, had lot's of action and a death that I was actually shocked by. The art was pretty good in most of the book. On a side note, I am far from an expert, but Humberto Ramos art is really not for me whatsoever. The book was good. The conclusion was good. It's definitely worth the read if you've been following along so far.

    This issue serves as the conclusion to not only the whole, slow-building Norman Osborn/Red Goblin saga, but Dan Slott's whole "Amazing" run. This was an entertaining issue, if not quite meeting the high expectations established in the build-up to this finale. I must say I expected more Immonen art here, and while his pages look great, there aren't quite enough. The dialogue here is well-done, with a lot of funny/groan-worthy lines, and the pace is not bad for an 80 page issue--it's exciting enough that it rarely feels like there are too many pages here. I also like the way the Spidey/Jonah relationship is going. While all of this is good, I felt the Red Goblin didn't quite live up to his billing here; issues 797 & 798 established such a cr more

    I found this to be a bit of a mess. I wanted to like it, but just didn't feel like it was good. The art was very inconsistent...sometimes good, sometimes awful. With the hefty $10 price tag, it just wasn't worth it at all.
