    Francesco Manna does an amazing job with the art in this issue. The action is great and the art in the quiet, conversational moments is sublime. Read Full Review

    Amazing Spider-Man is always at its best when the series includes Peter's supporting cast, and this issue does this in stride as it continues to ramp up the title's drama. Read Full Review

    Writer Nick Spencer takes a breather post "Hunted", and before jumping head first into "Absolute Carnage," with a fantastic one and done story that focuses on the Peter/Mary Jane relationship. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Charles Martin Sep 11, 2019

    This issue pushes Mary Jane temporarily off-stage but gives her a terrific sendoff by carefully exploring what she means to Peter right now. The Spider-Man antics are a touch generic, but if that's a result of concentrating the book's considerable storytelling powers on the relationship content, the trade-off is definitely worth it.

    Black Nerd Problems - Brandon Lawrence Sep 15, 2019

    Props to Francesco Manna. This book was fresh. A lot of the book was dialogue and the faces here were crisp. The colorist, Carlos Lopez deserves credit too. The beginning of the book is very bright colored as Spider-Man converses with Mary Jane and Aunt May. Later, when the villain is introduced the book switches to a dark hue and it creates a visual shift to go along with the tone. The book does have some action scenes that are nothing to scoff at. There's a full page back and forth between Spider-Man fighting A.I.M and Mary Jane waiting that was well mapped and cinematic. Next month, we get one of the most terrifying Spider-Man villains of all time. Read Full Review

    Personally, I'm always invested in the more grounded world around Peter. Seeing Peter and Mary Jane together, discussing how they can continue to move forward with their lives, even when life as Spider-Man tests them constantly. I think Nick Spencer does a great service when he gets to write moments like these. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Sep 13, 2019

    Amazing Spider-Man #29 is one of the best issues to date from Nick Spencer's run on this series. Spencer does a fantastic job writing Peter Parker, Mary Jane Watson and Aunt May's characters throughout this issue. The way he explores the state of Peter and Mary Jane's relationship in particular is the heart of the story that is presented. That heart is strong enough to create a lot of interest in the future of both Amazing Spider-Man and the upcoming Amazing Mary Jane series. Read Full Review
