    Kev Walker's art perfectly complements the tone and pace of this story. The panels are full of great details and the characters are drawn beautifully. Read Full Review

    The Spider-Man comics really have a unique feeling, fortunately Nick Spencer and Kev Walker continue to provide us with an excellent story that makes reading this new Friendly Neighborhood adventure very entertaining, which is highly recommended. Read Full Review

    Monkeys Fighting Robots - Brandon J. Griffin Aug 14, 2019

    Plenty of charm and attitude with this great cast of characters. Boomerang is being cemented as an all-time great Spidey character. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Brandon Lawrence Aug 18, 2019

    The Six, of course, play the aggrieved women. They recall experiences of being underestimated and overlooked for job prospects. Boomerang plays the "Bro" well. He even mansplains mid-fight after the six make it clear that it his toxic masculinity is a big reason he's being hunted. Spider-Man fills the role of an "Ally". He does his best to seems to breath in facts and breaths out inclusivity. The result is a cringeworthy word salad that left me cringing. All in all, Spencer and Walker have found some great voices and faces. Read Full Review

    Weird Science Marvel Comics - wolfcypher Aug 14, 2019

    An improvement over last issue, although Spencer just can't seem to help himself but to give the spotlight to his toys, as this arc still feels like its being carried by Boomerang and the Syndicate (effectively the “new” Superior Foes). But Spider-Man isn't side-lined for most of this issue, and actually gets to be involved in his own book, thankfully, making up for the previous installment. A fun little issue, but Boomerang upstaging Spider-Man in his own book as of late might be off-putting to some. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Matt Meyer Aug 19, 2019

    "Fun" is the word in "Who Run the World?." Nick Spencer is in his comfort zone, and it's nice to have a Spider-Man story in this book that isn't leaden with melodrama and the knee-jerk need to leave two-dozen dangling plot threads. Focus is the order of the day and if Spencer's run keeps this pace, he has a shot at redeeming it after several recent missteps. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Harlan Ivester Aug 14, 2019

    This is a fun issue of Amazing Spider-Man, especially if you’ve been relishing in the absurdity of Spider-Man paling around with Boomerang. It delivers on that end, even if the art leaves a little to be desired. It’s one of the more unremarkable issues of Spencer’s run so far, but fans should still pick it up and expect a good time overall. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Aug 15, 2019

    Amazing Spider-Man #27 is a comic that was headed to being a standout in Nick Spencer's run. The Spider-Man and Boomerang vs Sinister Syndicate worked to make all the players involved look good. Unfortunately decisions on the portrayal of certain characters and an unnecessary ending kept Amazing Spider-Man #27 from living up to its full potential. Read Full Review

    The spark of Superior Foes of Spider-Man is alive in Amazing #27. Not only is this incarnation of Boomerang recognizable, the non-stop banter and tonal fluctuations of his past series are on full display. Read Full Review
