    The Amazing Spider-Man (2018-) #18.HU takes D-list villain Gibbon and makes him a sympathetic and relatable character. Fantastic standalone story and great art. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Harlan Ivester Apr 3, 2019

    The HU titles now officially have my full recommendation. It’s clear that Nick Spencer put much thought and effort into them, rather than them being an editorially mandated cash-grab. I’m sure I don’t need to tell you why it’s important to flesh out some of these lesser known characters or fill out recent timelines of the more popular ones. It’s all painting a bigger picture with greater detail. That alone should be enough, but the interior art just sweetens the deal. Pick this up. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Matt Meyer Apr 6, 2019

    Though not the most original story, Nick Spencer does a great job of selling the idea that the Gibbon is a character worth caring about. And in doing so, rewrites "Hunted" as a tragedy before the story is even half-done. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Apr 8, 2019

    Blatant heartstring tugging works better when the story isn't working against itself, and the art is quite bland, not to mention the strange numbering making things confusing. Read Full Review
