    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.

    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

    “Last Remains” Part V

    Publisher: @marvel
    Writer: Nick Spencer
    Artist: @officialmarkbagleyart & John Dell
    Colorist: @delgaduck
    Cover: @patrickgleasonstudio & Edgar Delgado
    Letterer: @joecaramagna

    The Last Remains event continues as Kindred inflicts his brutal punishment on Spider-Man. Peter now knows that his best friend, Harry Osborn, is Kindred. Not only is Kindred putting Spider-Man through immense physical brutality, but is also causing him mental distress which is absolutely breaking down Peter. Kindred is not only going after Spider-Man, but everyone close to him as well.

    This event is by far Spencer’s more

    This was another great issue. There are some concerns about where exactly this is going beyond the immediate, but we'll see. This was a very powerful issue, in my opinion.

    Man, that was... that something else. That was good. So good.

    But I do fear if we will get enough of this in these last remaining issues (I'm sorry). Previous issue was very short and while I enjoyed, I do hope this story doesn't end with #55.

    While its true that this issue will fit in very well in a trade as part of a bigger picture, not many answers given or progress made, it was still fantastic! Whatever Harry has become is truly frightening and I have no idea how this will end!

    And kinda spoilery - did he just kill Peter several times? Getting Ben Reilly vibes. Evil Ben was kinda stupid but still - the whole I died and came back so many times that my soul is evil now, just reminded me of that. Kinda side - I hope a well written Ben Reilly shows up sometime in this run. Not the Jackyl version but the one that was fixed by Spidergedden. I like that guy.

    This is incredibly bleak. Brutal. Violent. Depressing even.

    Its fantastic.

    Started to get tiring, but hopefully it’s going to culminate into something great. Don’t disappoint us, Nick

    I see a lot of disappointed people and I can get why: this feels a little slow and dragged if read on weekly basis. It will probably look better in a collector edition. Still, the story is brutal and very well written and Spider-Man will have to face some serious consequences after this!

    I loved that cover. Very Spidey. It's one of the best I've seen in a while. As for the story, I'm still kind of lost with Harry. Did I miss something? He was still fine last I saw him. What turned him into this monstrosity he is now? Has he been like this all along? Is he still dead and never was alive? In spite of those questions, this was another fine issue and installment in the friend/enemy world of Peter Parker and Harry Osborn. Spencer and Bagley make one of the best teams I've seen on Spider-Man in years. As long as we have them, I know we can count on more exciting stories ahead.

    Another pretty solid issue. It had some cool parts and felt important. I really am curious to what the endgame will be with only main number issue left.

    It's good at times, hard to read at times and has good art to boot but for a 10 minutes read it's a disappointment at the end of the day for me. We really need to stop dragging stories like this especially with all of the .LR issues because it just dilutes the product and kills the story for me instead of enriching it. I get we need to build drama and I can see great ideas from Spencer that get lost in the sea of the dragged out process. Too bad. I still hold hope they don't finish this without proper answers because I can see them drag this story for another 2 years from now where they will tease OMD/Mephisto yet again. I've become so cynical from the shenanigans they pulled over the years.
