    Buy this, read it in the store (WITH your mask on) because it's too good to wait to get to the car for you to read it. This was SUCH a good issue, I think it's probably the best thing out this week. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Jul 29, 2020

    Mark Bagley delivers some beautiful art in this issue from start to finish. The human moments are filled with great detail in the character expressions and panel progression and the action is thrilling and tense. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Jul 29, 2020

    Overall, I think this is a great start to the Sin-Eater storyline. I've been slowly wondering when this series would get back into a groove after its stellar first story arc and it's fairly obvious this arc may be a return to something well worth investing your time in. "Sins Rising" is shaping up to be a haunting and worthy story. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Jul 31, 2020

    Amazing Spider-Man #45 is one of the better issues Nick Spencer has written on this series in quite some time. Spencer showed a great understanding of what Sin-Eater's return means for Spider-Man and how the villains return affects him in such a drastic way. Having Mark Bagley on board for this issue also helped with the tension that is felt with this clash between Spider-Man and Sin-Eater. This is definitely the most interested I've been in an Amazing Spider-Man story this year. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Harlan Ivester Jul 29, 2020

    If you’ve been counting the days till the Sin-Eater’s return, you won’t be disappointed. This is a really solid start to this story. I’m a little hesitant to see how the whole thing plays out, but this is an excellent reminder that Spencer knows how to set the stage when things get serious, too. Bagley’s art is great as ever, and the setting means that he and Curiel get to do great things with the environment in each panel. Read Full Review

    Weird Science Marvel Comics - wolfcypher Jul 29, 2020

    Amazing Spider-Man #45 is a decent enough start of the new Sins Rising arc, but not quite as engaging as its prelude special. Read Full Review

    GWW - Percy Waelchl Jul 29, 2020

    Spencer's re-introduction of historical characters may bring back readers or create opportunities for new readers to explore the original story arcs. But as an oversized issue, it does little more than set the stage for the new arc. Bagley's artwork though, continues to be quintessential Spider-man. Read Full Review

    Unfortunately, this issue feels very much like a filler chapter, but it sets up the arrival of Peter's bigger threat that is hanging over the horizon. Read Full Review
