    While Dan Slott will more than likely be fantastic (no pun intended) on Tony Stark: Iron Man and Fantastic Four, it's going to be hard to disassociate him from Amazing Spider-Man. Read Full Review

    Dan Slott's run on Spider-Man may be ending, but many of his stories and ideas will live on. Amazing Spider-Man #801 is a wonderful feel good issue that allows Slott to go out on top. You honestly couldn't ask for a better art team for this issue. The light colors and pencils help convey the message that Slott wants to tell. Amazing Spider-Man #801 is a must read for all Spidey fans. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Benjamin Birdie Jun 22, 2018

    If I never read another Spider-Man story, I'd be pretty okay with that. Slott, Martin, Vicente, and Carmagna tell a deceptively simple story that brilliantly illustrates why we tell stories about super-heroes in the first place. It's a fitting end to Slott's landmark run on the character and, frankly, one of the best single comics I've ever read. It's stand alone, so I'd recommend you go out and buy 250 copies and give one to every single person you know. Read Full Review

    Superior Spider-Talk - Mark Ginocchio Jun 22, 2018

    It's the end of an era as Dan Slott steps away from scripting Amazing Spider-Man. Combined with Marcos Martin's haunting illustrations, ASM #801 is a quiet, yet emotionally charged finale that reminds us of the enduring qualities of Spider-Man, as well as the significant imprint Slott has had on Marvel's flagship character.

    The issue's final page sees Spider-man swinging off to his next big adventure, while graffiti on a nearby water tower states simply "Slott was here." Yes he was, and it was a hell of a ride. Read Full Review

    AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #801 is an amazing finale for what's been an amazing 10 years of Spider-Man. Though it may seem underwhelming at first, it's easy to tell Dan Slott put his all into his final AMAZING SPIDER-MAN issue, and it definitely shows. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Jun 20, 2018

    Amazing Spider-Man #800 may have wrapped up Dan Slott's last major storyline, but the real emotional climax of that story comes in this epilogue issue. Slott and artist Marcos Martin are able to weave their magic with the character one last time, delivering a sweet, uplifting tribute to Peter Parker. This issue is over a little too quickly, but there's something to be said for leaving readers craving more, even after ten years. Read Full Review

    The sentiment illustrated and dictated in this issue is one that readers can reference when asked why they love Spider-Man. Mr. Slott, we thank you for your time and all of your entries into the Amazing Spider-Man continuity. Good luck on your new adventures! Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Jun 20, 2018

    This is a classic Lee/Ditko style Spider-Man story that doesn't go for big action, but illustrates the impact of what being a hero means to those that are saved. Really good standalone style of story. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Jun 23, 2018

    Amazing Spider-Man #801 is a great standalone issue for Dan Slott to end his run on. Through the eyes of one of the many people Peter has saved as Spider-Man we are able to see what how the character is the People's Champion of the Marvel Universe. With Marcos Martin elevating the story even further with his fantastic artwork Amazing Spider-Man #801 turned out to be a comic that is hard not have a smile after reading it. Though how satisfying this final Dan Slott issue of Amazing Spider-Man is will probably be left up to what you were looking for from the closing chapter of his decade long run. Read Full Review

    During moments like these, it’s hard not to feel a bit wistful — ever since he was first announced as the sole writer of Amazing Spider-Man, it felt like kismet for a writer like Dan Slott to be working on a character like this, a character he so clearly loved and understood and, as this issue shows, valued his importance as both a symbol and as an inspiration. Slott’s run on Spider-Man feels like a testament not just to one writer’s ingenuity, but his faith in the transformative power of fiction. And while Slott’s previous issue might have felt like a bigger, more epic climax to his years-long run with the character, it’s this beautifully produced epilogue that feels like the perfect love letter to an all-time classic superhero.
