    Sequential Planet - Ethan Maddux May 27, 2020

    With Amazing Spider-Man #43, Spencer and Ottley deliver an incredibly wholesome experience that builds upon the last issue's momentum. It may tie in into a larger story, but it doesn't need to, as it feels completely satisfying all on its own. This team is magic, and the issues they work on together reflect that. I'm thrilled to have this book back. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - M.R. Jafri May 27, 2020

    Spencer's humor is used to great use throughout the book. It's a simple, smart story but it moves quickly and features great character moments for Spider-Man, Boomerang and Gog. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Jimmy Hayes May 29, 2020

    Strong, fun, entertaining story with art that's really good, but not great. Worth you're time and money? No doubt!! Read Full Review

    After learning about the creature's tragic past, fans find there is more in common between Gog and Peter than either can admit, and the end of this issue gives the pair a chance to learn about healing moving forward. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Daniel Gehen May 27, 2020

    In the end, these are just quibbles that do little to detract from the overall quality and enjoyment of this issue. Amazing Spider-Man #43 caps off a successful reintroduction of one of Spider-Mans little-known foes with a conclusion that will make even the coldest of hearts melt. While this series has had its fair share of ups and downs, Spencer and Ottley are hitting their stride. Amazing Spider-Man may not be the best superhero book right now, but it is definitely one of the most enjoyable. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally May 27, 2020

    Ryan Ottley brings visual appeal to every page and both the action and characters look amazing in every panel. Some of the standout visual moments happen when Gog emerges from underground and Spidey has to go into action. Those moments are visually thrilling. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez May 27, 2020

    Amazing Spider-Man #43 was a mixed bag of an ending for this "True Companions" story arc. On one hand Nick Spencer created a touching conclusion to the storyline around Gog's character. But on the other hand, Spencer completely dropped the ball with the Boomerang and Lifeline Tablet storyline. Because of that Amazing Spider-Man #43 ended up coming across as half-complete when all was said and done. Read Full Review

    Weird Science Marvel Comics - wolfcypher May 28, 2020

    There's fun to be had in this one, but don't expect anything that really helps move this volume of ASM along. It still feels like absolutely nothing in Nick Spencer's grand scheme of heavier, weightier stories have moved forward at all. Still, enjoyable filler with amazing art. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke May 27, 2020

    This is a good looking book, but ultimately a long-winded way of adding a silly element into Spider-Man and Boomerang's life. This issue, and the series as a whole, reads like it's meandering and untethered from a greater purpose or direction. Here's to hoping the series gets back on track after its first great arc and gives us some answers about Kindred before it's far too late. Read Full Review

    Amazing Spider-Man #43 promised to be ground-breaking, but ends up being forgettable. Read Full Review
