•  Spider-Man has been a huge part of ABSOLUTE CARNAGE, but this is when his part gets REALLY crazy...
•  Only Spider-Man stands between Carnage at his scariest ever and young Dylan Brock.
•  There is so much more to it, but WE DO NOT WANT TO SPOIL IT!

    It's not an easy feat to accomplish but both Spencer and Ottley deliver one of the best chapters of the crossover to date. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Jimmy Hayes Sep 29, 2019

    Usually event tie-issues are boring or they don't make sense and take you out of the "real" story that you're following in the comic, That's not the case here, The main storyline is taking a break and this is the perfect spot to drop this adventure in, not to mention it's a plain-out great issue, Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Sep 25, 2019

    Ryan Ottley delivers some amazing art in this issue. The fight between Spider-Man and Carnage is brutal and beautifully done. All of the scenes with Kindred are ominous and bathed in shadow. A great looking book. Read Full Review

    Weird Science Marvel Comics - wolfcypher Sep 26, 2019

    Nick Spencer keeps his creepy, mysterious Kindred in our purview, and brings the events of Absolute Carnage down to just Peter and Norman, taking things back away from symbiote gods, Venom, Dark Carnage, etc. to remind fans of the long-lasting animosity between Spider-Man and the original Green Goblin himself, despite who Norman may think he is.

    AIPT - David Brooke Sep 25, 2019

    I dug this tie-in for its clean art and creepy boogeyman feel. This book serves as a reminder why Norman Osborn is Spider-Man's most fearsome enemy. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Daniel Gehen Oct 1, 2019

    In all, Amazing Spider-Man #30 is a well-made, well-paced issue that may not be a necessary tie-in for those following Absolute Carnage, but is a worthwhile read nonetheless. Spencer and Ottley manage to do this while keeping regular Amazing readers in the know, making this a welcoming issue for all. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Kat Calamia Sep 27, 2019

    The Amazing Spider-Man #30 is not only a solid "Absolute Carnage" tie-in, but also a great Spider-Man issue as it continues to develop the mystery of Kindred and brings the Red Goblin back to the forefront. Read Full Review

    Sequential Planet - Alex Marks Oct 3, 2019

    Overall, Amazing Spider-Man #30 is a fast-paced, fun read. You don't have to read Absolute Carnage to understand it, even though I personally think you should read it. Absolute Carnage rules. Also, if you really don't plan on reading AC, I still say pick up ASM #30, as Kindred - the mysterious bug guy who's been appearing in Spencer's Spider-Man occasionally - is present. Nick Spencer's writing is great and Ryan Ottley's art is fantastic. It just sort of felt pretty short. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Harlan Ivester Sep 25, 2019

    I’m happy to say that I definitely recommend this one. Even if you have zero interest in Absolute Carnage, Amazing Spider-Man #30 has plenty to make it stand on its own, and could prove to be very important to the series later on. It’s impressive that Spencer managed to make all fronts of the script work so well, and having this art team back together would be enough on its own to make me want to check this out. Buy a copy and enjoy. Read Full Review
