    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

    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

    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

    I called it! This is gonna be real interesting.

    MAN this issue! Fantastic stuff. Norman... man.. some chilling scenes here. Fantastic panels with details and even symbolism. Very well written. Nick Spencer understands Spider-Man. He shows it in his writing.

    Really digging the art here. Some great visuals. Almost feel bad for Stan.

    As for the reveal, that is the character that makes the most sense given all the information we have, but I was so certain it was a fake out, and maybe it still is. We'll see. As for the rest of the issue, I could not be more hyped. It's very dark, which is fitting, and Gleason's art is phenomenal. We get to see Stan Carter go, which honestly made me feel for the guy. And there is sooo much One More Day over everything in this issue. It's ridiculous and I just hope that Nick Spencer and Marvel editorial are actually going to pull the trigger and undo One More Day (which does not undo the secret identity so no worries there.). The events of this issue are definitely a major step in that direction. I'm very excited for this arc. It'll take me more

    Loved the issue and I guessed who Kindred was too!

    Any little problems I had with the last issue are gone. The name truly fits, what an amazing Spider-Man issue. Everything with the art and the writing and what comes next? Oh boy.

    This gets a 10 because everything worked in this issue. It was all about the reveal of Kindred and this issue built the suspense the entire time. Although it was a longer issue, I didn't think it was padded to fill space.

    I know many people were not surprised by the reveal but that's not bad. The clues leading up were enough to work it out like any good mystery. If it was another character just for the sake of telling people they were wrong would have been stupid. (Like the Gaunt reveal in the clone saga. They just pulled the robot master out of complete obscurity instead of following the clues leading up that it was suppose to be an Osborne.) Anyway, the reveal of Kindred is good. That particular character needed something like more

    Patrick Gleason is the greatest Spider-Man artist of all time, and Nick Spencer's writing was great

    Dark Knight Comic Fan Oct 13, 2020


    This issue's tone is eerie and grim. Dark Spider-Man stories are great Spider-Man stories and Nick Spencer is finally going to give his all in a storyline two years in the making. This is going to be the next defining chapter in the modern era of Amazing Spider-Man that you don't dare want to miss.

    It may be just me, but we might have another classic Spider-man story on our hands. The Halloween mood complements this book.

    The only reason why this doesn't have a 10 is that considering who Kindred ended up being we should've got the revelation sooner.

    Also FYI, ASM will be going almost weekly until the end of the year. Awesome!

    I remember considering this reveal around the beginning of this run but this was still good.

    Yep, I guessed it right. Kindred is exactly who I thought he was, but that's ok as it makes perfect sense. The story is very thrilling and lots of things happen, so you will be glued to the pages considering that it's told in non-chronological order. Let's see what's next and what are Kindred's real motivations! (But is he really THAT GUY? Could this be a huge fakeout or red herring?)

    I really liked this issue. Im glad we are finally getting somewhere with kindred and some of the scenes in here were just awesome. Cant wait to see what happens. Also gleason is a beast on the art. Hope he stays on for a while.

    I enjoyed it and was turning the pages in anticipation so Spencer did his job well there and Gleason delivered some tremendous detailed work (Even though his big headed Spidey in some panels has yet to grow on me but everything else is fantastic). But I can't help but feel underwhelmed at the end. I hope there is more to it than that, so we'll see. Two years in and Spencer has not delivered one arc that defines his run yet. It's good and had great moments in sporadic issues but I hope he can put together a full arc/story that resonates with me but maybe it's just me.
