    This issue is a breather. Still important, still very entertaining, still recommended. But, it's slower-paced to get you some calm before the incoming storm. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Mar 25, 2020

    Ryan Ottley's art is fantastic. There are some great panels showcasing the size and power of Gog, but also sequences that feature the creature in the comfort of those who care about him and that contrast is beautifully done. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Mar 27, 2020

    Amazing Spider-Man #42 takes a break from the main stories going on in this series to spotlight the rarely seen Gog. To Nick Spencer's credit he does a solid job with getting the reader invested in Gog's backstory. With the direction Spencer took, it was really Ryan Ottley's incredible artwork that elevated Gog's backstory to be as successful as it was. The only thing that hurt the story in Amazing Spider-Man #42 is that it never escaped coming across as filler content. Read Full Review
