    But Why Tho? - CJ Oct 28, 2020

    The Amazing Spider-Man #51 continues to ramp up the "Last Remains" story arc, cementing Nick Spencer and Patrick Gleason as a top-tier Spidey team. The next issue will see Spidey and Kindred finally face-off, and I can't wait to see how it turns out. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Oct 28, 2020

    Patrick Gleason delivers some great imagery in this issue. The fight between Silk, Spidey and Strange was visually impressive and the final moments when Spider-Man goes to confront Kindred are beautifully drawn. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Matt Meyer Oct 28, 2020

    Amazing Spider-Man #51 hits all the right notes, start to finish. Art, story, and dialogue combine pretty much flawlessly to deliver a chilling tale that gets right to the heart of Spider-Man as a character, and use that heart against him relentlessly! Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Oct 28, 2020

    While it can be frustrating to try to piece together what is going on, it's hard to deny the general mood and atmosphere of this story suit the spooky season and feels entirely different. For that, The Amazing Spider-Man #51 is an interesting foray into a dark place that is unusual and intriguing. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Jeremy Matcho Oct 31, 2020

    Amazing Spider-Man #51 is a great addition to the series. Nick Spencer has written great a creepy script that will no doubt have a lasting impact on Peters life. The pencils and colors couldnt have been better for a story like this. Amazing Spider-Man is picking up steam and getting creepy just in time for Halloween. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Oct 30, 2020

    Amazing Spider-Man #51 does a very good job moving the plot forward with the main two players of "Last Remains." Nick Spencer firmly establishes the unsettling nature of Kindred, who has gone all in on the horror movie villain vibe. The way Spider-Man tries to combat that by seeking out close allies to help him out show that Peter Parker knows he is up against a villain like no other he has faced. That all set the stage well for how there is still a sense of unknown with where this story will end up, especially with the hook ending of this issue. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Harlan Ivester Oct 28, 2020

    Amazing Spider-Man #51 is another excellent chapter. Each time I think the tension has peaked, it gets higher still. There is a strange detour, but the story otherwise nails the feelings and beats that Spencer is going for. Gleason and Delgado give this book a lot of reread value with awesome action, acting, and shading. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Oct 29, 2020

    Despite my absence from the title, and this being the second issue of the storyline, the plot was relatively easy to follow and artist Patrick Gleason has some fun with Spidey in shadow and falling through reality. Enough to keep me around for another issue? Hmm… maybe? Read Full Review
