+ Pull List

• J. JONAH JAMESON has a new job as a shock jock, but is the world ready for a pro-Spider-Man JJJ?
•  More importantly, is Spider-Man ready? His post-secret-identity relationship with Jonah was already complicated, but this very public embrace may put him over the edge!
•  Spidey's definitely not ready for the Enforcers to come at him harder than ever!

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Dec 12, 2018

    Ottley's art is great in this issue. I like the dramatic renderings of Jonah at the height of his bluster and the more reserved art of Peter spending time with Robbie. The contrast works well with the tone of the story. Read Full Review

    On Comics Ground - Alec Thorn Dec 14, 2018

    A fun, hilarious, and somewhat touching holiday issue for the web-head that doesn't take itself too seriously, in a good way Read Full Review

    Comics Bookcase - Zack Quaintance Dec 12, 2018

    Heavy on media commentary, old supporting cast members, and solid laughs, Amazing Spider-Man #11 shifts the tone from recent issues and continues to seed plot points for the team to develop moving forward. Despite the always-tricky double-shipping schedule, this comic is rock solid. Read Full Review

  • 8.0 - Christian Hoffer Dec 12, 2018

    This is probably the most no-frills issue of Amazing Spider-Man written by Spencer. There's no new revelations or status quo changes, just a focus on one of Spider-Man's oldest relationships that's totally different, but somehow still the same. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Charles Martin Dec 12, 2018

    Amazing Spider-Man #11 kicks off an arc that promises to be all about the Jameson. Plenty of attention to both deep continuity and recent developments gives his characterization a lot of nuances here. This is a very engaging first chapter thanks to strong art and a fast, intriguing plot, too. As ever, ASM delivers thorough satisfaction and a mighty hook compelling you to read on. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Dec 12, 2018

    A good issue that begins to revisit and possibly even change Jameson and Peter Parker's only recent friendship. Read Full Review

    Epicstream - Brian McCormick Dec 18, 2018

    Art by Ryan Ottley has grown on me and the colors by Laura Martin are top notch. Laura adds some Winter magic to the issue making the city feel alive, rather than just a still backdrop. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Matt Meyer Dec 14, 2018

    With a character-driven story that gets to the heart of the Spidey/J. Jonah Jameson dynamic, Nick Spencer is definitely onto something - he just needs to beef up his plots a little more. There's nothing wrong with a lighter touch, storytelling-wise, but a truly great comic should feel like a meal, rather than a snack. This issue is fun, but the plot is too fluffy to be anything more than the comic equivalent of a popcorn flick. Read Full Review
