    The last page stunner is one heck of a shocker on its own and the whole package makes for a fantastic way for Spider-Man to ring in 2020. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Jan 8, 2020

    Ryan Ottley delivers some beautiful art in this issue. The panels are full of energy and movement and the light tone of the story is beautifully contrasted between the human interactions and the action. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Jan 8, 2020

    I've been trade waiting for most of this series, but I'm on the edge of diving back into this series thanks to this and the great issue before it. The idea of Spider-Man utilizing a new way of seeing dangers is an interesting one given the spider-sense abilities he already has. Read Full Review

    Sequential Planet - Ethan Maddux Jan 13, 2020

    The Amazing Spider-Man #37 is a breath of fresh air after an underwhelming couple of months for the title. It gets back to what made it so refreshing in the first place, focusing on Peter's social life, the Kindred mystery, and the art team's spectacular work. I couldn't be happier to see it.

    After Nick Spencer's last arc, he provides a brief palate cleanser with a few appetizers for the coming story. The issue is a nice break in the action, but ultimately minor in the scope of the ongoing storylines. The result is a needed, but quickly consumed issue bridging major arcs in Spencer's ongoing run.

    All-Comic - Luke Corona Jan 11, 2020

    Amazing Spider-Man #37 doesn't have any groundbreaking reveals or major game changers, but does a good job of setting up for future issues and giving the reader some genuine laughs and heartfelt character moments. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Jan 11, 2020

    Amazing Spider-Man #37 has introduces some interesting plot points for the direction Peter Parker, J. Jonah Jameson and Norah Winters are going to go on moving forward. Nick Spencer's writing is at its best when he is just writing these characters day-to-day interactions. That is helped by the excellent artwork that Ryan Ottley provides throughout this issue. The problem Amazing Spider-Man #37 runs into is the fact that in trying to be smart by referencing events like Civil War II what Spencer actually accomplishes the opposite. All he ends up doing is highlighting all the problems their is with the big stories he is trying to tell in this series. Read Full Review

    Weird Science Marvel Comics - wolfcypher Jan 8, 2020

    This issue feels like the obligatory cool-down story after one extended arc ends and before we move on to the next series of stories, but it just didn't give me any reason to be excited for what's in store next for Peter. Read Full Review

    This is a ground setting issue, but a really great one. I'm excited for JJJ's podcast (which is what the next arc will be about) and Norah Winters possibly becoming part of the cast (I mean, she was in issue 13, but that was so long ago). I'm also excited to see what Spider-Man can do with the clairvoyant. He is basically the only hero that can be trusted with that, and I love how Nick Spencer immediately addresses Civil War II and its bullshit dichotomy, thus solving that problem before it can really fester. Another thing I love is Peter's insecurities and his attempt at fixing them. Spidey has got to be relatable, that's how he works. I found the video date with MJ adorable. And lastly, man, Kindred is back and he's bringing back the Sin- more

    This issue was definitely a return-to-from.

    I'm glad we are done with the "2099" event. Now we can finally move to the main story. You know, the one that's actually interesting.

    Anyways, this issue had some really nice moments (Peter and MJ's date) and some funny ones too (JJJ and Norah's talk). The ending, for the first time in a long time, has me excited to see what will happen and overall, I think this issue was fun and worth reading.

    Finally an issue that isn't event-driven! Man this was a breath of fresh air. Great art by Ottley with an ending that will put you on the edge of your seat!

    The Road to "Last Remains" truly begins here and it's quite the start.

    I don't know if it is Ottley being back as the artist, but I really liked this one. A nice, slower issue that teases things to come and gives us nice MJ/Pete -moment.

    Spencer is better at these smaller stories IMO, the 2099 wasn't good for me.

    This is where the book should stay. Spencer and Ottley as they established in the first year. Classic Spidey stories feel with new twists.

    Finally a solid issue after that pretty average 2099 arc. This got back to basics with what made this good to begin with.

    " Which is actually kind of a weird relief-- Because the last time we found something that could tell the future-- things got a little heated. "

    This clairvoyant thing is too sci-fi for Spidey, and really, makes no sense. All these alternate realities donr occur simultaneously or track exactly, so how does it predict where spidey should be to stop a break-in? I dont likethe art,either.
