    On Comics Ground - Marcus Freeman Aug 14, 2018

    Spencer and Ottley's take on Spider-Man continues to be a fun experience. Peter is once again down on his luck, but his life is a joy to experience. Peter's unexpected separation from Spider-Man is ripe for intriguing storyline possibilities. Will Spider-Man retain Peter's sense of responsibility? Read Full Review

    Monkeys Fighting Robots - Brandon J. Griffin Aug 9, 2018

    The Amazing Spider-Man is superhero comic book perfection. Spencer & Ottley take no time to win over longtime Spidey fans. From cover to cliffhanger, each issue has been a truly joyous experience worthy of a second read. This entire creative team is worth way more than the price of admission. Read Full Review

    AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #3 is... weird, to say the least. It's definitely a good issue. It moves the story forward in a very creative way. I just hope this doesn't all come tumbling down on top of Spencer. Read Full Review

    Ottley does an amazing job with the art in this issue. Both the smaller, character driven moments and the action beats are rendered with great care and detail. Read Full Review

    We Have A Hulk - Nicola Austin Aug 11, 2018

    The Amazing Spider-Man #3 continues to be a fun and classic feeling Spidey story, but I'm a little bit hesitant to see what this Spider-Man is going to do next! It seems as though in the split he lost his sense of responsibility, and I really can't see this going well. How does the classic Spidey phrase go again? Anyway, I'm genuinely intrigued to see where Spencer takes this and am so enjoying the ride! Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Aug 10, 2018

    Amazing Spider-Man #3 continued the strong start Nick Spencer is having for his run on this series. Spencer took the time to deliver a character driven story with Peter Parker at the center. Adding in some Spider-Man action sequences, which were wonderfully drawn by Ryan Ottley, helped keep the story moving forward. If it weren't for a few problems with certain story beats Amazing Spider-Man #3 would've been close to perfect. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Charles Martin Aug 8, 2018

    Some of the best Spider-Man comics ever invite the reader to shout, "Peter Parker, you idiot!" more than once. ASM #3 joins their hallowed ranks. Its slow pace does flirt with frustration, but considerable creative effort ensures that this issue is neither a detour nor a disappointment. It has a subtle gut-punch of its own, and the pinnacle it's building toward shows every sign of greatness. Read Full Review

  • 7.0 - Roger Palmer Aug 12, 2018

    Amazing Spider-Man #3 feels like a Saturday morning cartoon, it's light hearted and being a fan of the 90's Spider-Man, it works, but it's not anything amazing but an enjoyable read. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Aug 13, 2018

    Excellent art and a weirdly neat maguffin make for a Spider-Man tale we haven't seen before, albeit one that feels somewhat brief. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Branden Murray Aug 13, 2018

    Nick Spencer appears to be writing a Spider-Man 'for the children', as the topics and answers given here, veer close to becoming what's found on the Disney XD channel each week. There was a cool appearance by a classic Spidey villain which is overshadowed by the what feels like a completely childish story other wise and just isnt hitting the notes for me right now.  The art is this books saving grace at this point in time, but some transition issues from last issue, leave a few of our answers this issue feel unearned.

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Aug 11, 2018

    The opening storyline gets weirder, and the writing takes a few unnecessary shortcuts to try and make that weirdness work. Read Full Review

    After three issues, there are fewer reasons than ever to hope this series will improve and it may soon be time for even diehard fans of the webhead to jump ship. Read Full Review
