    Marcelo Ferriera has a unique visual style that works really well with the tone of this story. There is a darkness and seriousness to it that melds itself well with the plot. Read Full Review

    Overall this is a solid issue with a great artwork and an interesting story. It will be interesting to see what the final results of the Sun-Eater's powers are on the various supervillains. It is nice seeing a villain that is less used to be elevated within the mythos. The hope is that we can get a better visual dynamic to the character as the arc continues. Read Full Review

    Weird Science Marvel Comics - wolfcypher Aug 12, 2020

    I really have no idea how any of this is going to tie into Spencer's Kindred story anymore. This issue really cements the idea that this is just its own story, independent of whatever Spider-Man's bigger mystery villain has in store. I'm not seeing what it is that connects the two, besides Kindred being the one to revive Stan Carter and supercharge him with his supernatural enhancements. Even with that said, this issue has a lot going for it. Whether its a bigger piece of an unfinished/still-ongoing work of art or maybe it's its own tapestry, it's shaping to be a fine design.

    Comics: The Gathering - Charles Martin Aug 12, 2020

    In Amazing Spider-Man #46, Spidey and us readers get a full, clear look at the Sin-Eater's new MO. It's violent and traumatic, yet it also seems effective. This is one of those plots where the hero draws back and says, "wait, should I be stopping this?" Of course, "this" is "gunning people down with a magic shotgun," so yeah, Spidey'll no doubt find the motivation he needs. For now, though, this unsettlingly compelling look at the Sin-Eater gives the arc some impressive depth. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Aug 13, 2020

    Amazing Spider-Man #46 is continues the momentum from the previous issue as Nick Spencer is possibly crafting the best story arc of his run on this series with "Sins Rising." The development around the resurrected Sin-Eater has come across as an evolution for the character. How this has challenged Spider-Man makes the anticipation for the endgame of "Sins Rising" be even greater after reaching the final page of Amazing Spider-Man #46. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Aug 12, 2020

    I'm liking the "Sins Rising" story so far and this issue integrates a clever story mechanic that works well with the goals of the book. That makes Amazing Spider-Man #46 a recommended read on its own merit and as part of a larger story.That said, the last chunk of the book is dry, overly wordy, and decidedly lacking in Spider-Man.
