    But Why Tho? - CJ Nov 11, 2020

    The Amazing Spider-Man#52 finally brings a fight that was two years in the making to its pages, featuring non-stop action with a splash of horror. It also happens to end with a whopping cliffhanger, promising to shift the thrust of the story. Even though it's only three issues in, this storyline is paying off years of setup and promises to cement Spencer as one of the greatest Spider-Man writers in the character's history. Spidey fans won't want to miss this. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Nov 11, 2020

    Patrick Gleason does a lot with the art in this issue. There is a lot going on in the story and Gleason keeps the art clean and full of beautiful details. There is a dark, dramatic energy to the story and the art perfectly captures it. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Chris Aiken Nov 13, 2020

    Patrick Gleason's art matches the tone of the issue. Every panel is rough, and I especially love how Peter's suit deteriorates from the beginning to the end of the battle. The possessed Spider-Family members have some pretty unique designs as well. We leave off on a hell of a cliffhanger, but I'm pretty sure it's not the end. Hopefully, we explore a bit more about Harry's turn to Kindred and his goal for Peter. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Jimmy Hayes Nov 11, 2020

    DO NOT let this issue get spoiled for you... the ending of this book will freak you out! Don't deny yourself that experience. This is a fantastic comic with both story and art building throughout the book to a great big last page shocker!!!!! (No, it's not Shocker.) Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Nov 12, 2020

    Amazing Spider-Man #52 is built around the impact of the final page. How we get there is done extremely well by Nick Spencer as we are finally given the first face-to-face meeting between Spider-Man and Kindred. How this meeting breaks down and leads to the decision Peter Parker is forced to make leaves us in a place of uncertainty with how things will turn out. It is that uncertainty that drives greater interest in the final chapters of "Last Remains." Read Full Review

    On Comics Ground - Alec Thorn Nov 23, 2020

    Weird Science Marvel Comics - wolfcypher Nov 16, 2020

    Last Remains continues to entertain this reviewer, where both the main issues and the "point" LR issues feel substantial and equally act as necessary reads. This arc is proving to be some of Spencer's best and strongest since he's been given this title, and I'm happy to ask for more. Read Full Review
