    Mark Bagley delivers some stunning visuals in this issue. Everything looked amazing and there are some truly brutal, yet beautifully styled imagery throughout this issue. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - CJ Dec 9, 2020

    Though it hits a few of the same notes as previous issues,Amazing Spider-Man #54 still manages to put our hero through the wringer. The stage is set for an epic confrontation that may cost Peter Parker everything and could set Kindred up as the foe who truly beat him. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Dec 10, 2020

    Amazing Spider-Man #54 immediately delivers on Peter Parker learning who Kindred is and what that means for the impact "Last Remains" has on the franchise. Nick Spencer and Mark Bagley work well off each other's strengths as creators to tell a story that had all the emotional impact you expect this showdown between Spider-Man and Kindred to have. The way things end leaves you with such a sense of uncertainty with how things will turn out when all is said and done with "Last Remains." Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Johnny "The Machine" Hughes Dec 10, 2020

    Amazing Spider-Man deserves to be the pinnacle of the Marvel books. He can cross the genres and and age groups in ways that other characters can't. Nick Spencer has stuck to his guns with the pacing of this whole run, possibly to the detriment of the fans patience. Hopefully, the final parts of this story may well deliver on all that Nick Spencer's reputation has promised. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Harlan Ivester Dec 9, 2020

    Amazing Spider-Man #54 should have been last week’s issue. We still don’t get the answers we’re looking for (and I guess we should just accept that at this point), but it is still a satisfying and engaging confrontation that we’ve been waiting for for so long. Spencer deserves praises for taking the book to a darker place without making it obnoxiously edgy, and Bagley, Dell, & Delgado prove themselves yet again to be a consistently strong visual team.

    The Amazing Spider-Man #54 takes Peter Parker in hand and beats the ever-loving hell out of him with angst. Read Full Review

    On Comics Ground - Alec Thorn Jan 27, 2021

    Genuinely fantastic art and fun battles do little to save this deteriorating storyline from its lack of direction and constantly going in circles until the final issue. Read Full Review

    COMICON - James Ferguson Dec 14, 2020

    Oh my God! They killed Spider-Man! Again and again and again. All this violence and yet we still don't know why Kindred is all up in the wall-crawler's business. Read Full Review
