    But Why Tho? - CJ Oct 14, 2020

    Amazing Spider-Man #50 brings two years' worth of plotlines to a head while setting the stage for a confrontation between Spidey and Kindred. I can't wait to see how the story continues and how the other Spider-heroes factor into it. Read Full Review

    Patrick Gleason does some great work with the art in this issue. The imagery is bold, vibrant and full of action. A great looking issue from start to finish. Read Full Review

    Geek'd Out - Jonathan Boes Oct 16, 2020

    This is an essential issue if you're following Spencer's Amazing Spider-Man run. But if you're looking to jump in for the first time, this probably isn't the best place to start. Go back to Spencer's first Amazing Spider-Man arc and work your way up. Trust me, it's pure Spider-joy. Read Full Review

    The Amazing Spider-Man #50 pushes forward with a meaty chapter that plays with the fate of Peter Parker and the world. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Harlan Ivester Oct 14, 2020

    I think it’s safe to say that this is perhaps the most important issue of Nick Spencer’s Amazing Spider-Man yet. The issues that I did have while reading weren’t necessarily with the single chapter by itself. This story continues raising the tension built by the previous arc, while finally giving us some long awaited answers and plot development. Gleason and Delgado nail the tone throughout, with awesome character work and excellent framing. Don’t miss this. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Oct 15, 2020

    Amazing Spider-Man #50 got "The Last Remains" off to a hot start. This entire issue was built around how effective the reveal in the final page was executed. To Nick Spencer's credit he succeeded in the impact of Amazing Spider-Man #50's ending. It sets up a lot intrigue for what will happen next as "The Last Remains" continues. Read Full Review

    Weird Science Marvel Comics - wolfcypher Oct 15, 2020

    The story arc we've all been waiting for. It delivers one big answer while putting into perspective more pressing questions. Incredible art flows through this one. I found this to be a good issue. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Quinn Tassin Oct 19, 2020

    "The Amazing Spider-Man #50" is a competently written but ultimately disappointing landmark issue in Nick Spencer's take on our favorite web-slinger. Read Full Review

    Impulse Gamer - Tim Chuma Oct 25, 2020

    I would recommend this one if you are already a fan of Spiderman and have been following this storyline already. Spiderman has many reboots and mirror universes throughout its run so much so that there are at least five Spiderman comics going at the moment. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Oct 14, 2020

    Optimistic readers will want to read this for its strange and dark underbelly, especially for such a hopeful and positive character, but many may not find enough here to care about trudging forward in a series that has become cold, slow, and underwhelming. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Pierce Lydon Oct 14, 2020

    As always, 'time will tell' if this arc will really engage and satisfy readers but at this juncture, it can't help but feel anticlimactic. Read Full Review
