Boomerang's influence is finally felt, and Spider-Man joins the Superior Foes!
Wait, that's not possible, is it? IS IT?!?!

    Amazing Spider-Man #26 is a hilarious issue that's full of heart. While it doesn't do much to push the "main plot" forward, it does deliver a worthy Superior Foes successor. Kev Walker makes a wonderful addition to the team whose style doesn't feel far removed from those who came before. While the book does spend a bit too much time on recaps, it doesn't significantly hinder its quality. This book has always been a blast, and that hasn't changed. Read Full Review

    The villain-focused Amazing Spider-Man #26 is a fun throwback to the days of Superior Foes of Spider-Man. Read Full Review

    I'm looking forward to following more of Boomerang. I've noticed that in Spider-Man comics there are is an occasional theme of reforming villains. Prowler comes to mind, as does that amazing work with Rhino some years back. When confronted by his sordid past, I'm curious whether Spencer will have him virtuously pull through, sink back into his old habits, or die. Pretty sure those are the only options. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Jul 24, 2019

    A decent issue if you've been reading Spencer's run, but you might get frustrated with all the recap of what we already know. That said, the villains steal the show. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Matt Meyer Jul 25, 2019

    Amazing Spider-Man #26 takes a step back from the last half-year's or so worth of grim, melodramatic storytelling, and just has some fun. A lot of cool, breezy concepts are brought to the fore as well, making this an issue that while not earth-shattering, at the very least isn't mentally draining to try to get through. Spencer needs to do more like this. Read Full Review

    Fred Myers is the best part of the current Amazing Spider-Man run. His charm is every bit as magnetic as it was in Superior Foes of Spider-Man providing some much-needed fun for this cardboard presentation of Peter Parker. Read Full Review
