    Slott and Giuseppe are upping the ante by jumping right into the fire with Scorpio and his plan coming to fruition. The bar is set not too high yet, but just in position where you know the next installment has to bring the heat ten fold. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - David Pepose Mar 10, 2016

    Supercharged by the return of Guiseppe Camuncoli on art, Amazing Spider-Man #9 is a short-but-sweet kind of issue, briskly paced by Dan Slott as he throws set piece after fun set piece at the Web-slinger. Read Full Review

    Comicsverse - Sean Bartley Mar 12, 2016

    AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #9 is a book that succeeds because its creators are confident enough to take a wacky concept and make it work. Dan Slott has proven time and again his mastery over the Spider-Man character and his universe, and this issue is no exception. While it does continue to follow the formulaic approach of teaming Spider-Man up with another hero and having them go on an adventure in one of Spider-Man's new vehicles, it results in a story that's different than what we've seen before in this series. Giuseppe Camuncoli resumes kicking ass on the art front after a short break. The work that he, Gracia, and inker Cam Smith have done throughout this series is absolutely incredible. Slott continues to tease that there are big things on the horizon for our friendly neighborhood Spider-Man, and as long as this creative team is along for the ride, I will be too. Read Full Review

    Whatever momentum this series might have lost in the previous issue is instantly reclaimed as Dan Slott and Giuseppe Camuncoli reunite and continue Spider-Man's conflict with Zodiac. This issue is crammed with epic superhero spectacle, but it also established the new Scorpio as a credible and unpredictable threat to Peter Parker's growing global empire. Read Full Review

    One of Slott's strongest starts to an arc since his Superior Spider-Man days. From the Alek Ross cover to the Giuseppe Camuncoli art, this book has a pretty mouth.  Read Full Review

    Superior Spider-Talk - Mark Ginocchio Mar 9, 2016

    Amazing Spider-Man #9 gives readers a somewhat familiar story in outer space, but it also captures a lot of the fun and fancy that's been missing from the series for a while. Read Full Review

    This isn't a classic Spidey issue, but it does generate all the crazy thrills and chills you want from our friendly Neighborhood hero. Read Full Review

    Kabooooom - Brandon Griffin Mar 12, 2016

    I really want to love this series and for the most part I have, but the common takeaway from the past couple issues has been an empty feeling, leaving me expecting something more. I'm actively rooting for Slott and company to turn things around, I believe they will do it, it's just never fun knowing you're in the dud zone when your hopes are so high. Read Full Review
