• You know what's annoying? Having to save J. Jonah Jameson's life.
•  Sure, he's been on Spidey's side for a little while, but that's after YEARS of him making Spider-Man's life a living heck.
•  I feel like this amount of responsibility should come with even more power.
•  Anyway, who, other than most of New York, would want to punish J. Jonah Jameson?

    Ryan Ottleys art is fluid, exciting and fun. There was dynamic movement on every page and it really complemented the pace of the story Spencer is telling. Read Full Review

    Comics Bookcase - Zack Quaintance Jan 16, 2019

    Amazing Spider-Man #13 doubles down on two of the strengths of this run: deep and serious dives into Spider-Mans long continuity, and finales that deal more with emotional honesty and growth than they do with punching and kicking. This time its J. Jonah Jamesons turn to be a better man, and the result is a thoroughly enjoyable Spider-Man comic. Read Full Review

    Amazing Spider-Man 13 is a satisfying end to this story arc. Fans of J. Jonah Jameson will love how much he's grown as a person on this run. Nick Spencer has done a great job of making every character matter. The art should give off some wonderful eye candy and visuals for those who love the medium. Amazing Spider-Man is the spider book we need Read Full Review

    Sequential Planet - Ethan Maddux Jan 16, 2019

    Amazing Spider-Man #13 puts a cap on another very strong arc, though it's not the best we've seen from this team. It has that patented Nick Spencer humor, paired with some wonderful art by Ottley that makes the book sing. The two work together brilliantly, but the plot feels somewhat forced. Despite that, strong characterizations and storytelling still hold the book to a level that is more than worth your time. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Alex Curtis Jan 16, 2019

    The characters and art are messy, but it's hard to hate on the issue's lilting sense of pathos and humor. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Matt Meyer Jan 18, 2019

    Though technically a solid ending that manages to tie up all of this story's loose ends, the uneven nature of its storytelling style makes it too clumsy to pull off everything it's trying to accomplish. There are strong character beats, but everything else falls flat. Read Full Review

    Weird Science Marvel Comics - Branden Jan 16, 2019

    Overall as a whole this Spider-Man run is becoming very predictable settling into a very common pattern each issue. This was a three issue arc that didn't move this series forward, did nothing but establish relationships we are already well aware of from other Spider-Man books, and to have the main creative art team return to the title for this feels like a waste for everyone involved. Nick Spencer has had some good issues thus far in his run of Spider-Man this one falls well short of that mark and feels more like filler than anything rewarding to experience. Read Full Review
