    But Why Tho? - CJ Jan 27, 2021

    Amazing Spider-Man #58 manages to find the balance between launching a new story arc and continuing threads from the previous arc while presenting a new look at one of Spidey's villains. Dark days lie ahead for Spidey, and hopefully, he can weather them and save Martin Li's soul. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Robert Reed Jan 27, 2021

    By focusing on this fallout, rather than the machinations of Kindred, or the Order of the Web, or whatever it is that Kingpin is up to, Nick Spencer, Joe Caramagna, and the art team of Marcelo Ferreira, Wayne Faucher, and Morry Hollowell create a haunting look at the lives of those affected by all the superheroics that comic fans often take for granted. Marvel has often sold its universe and Spider-Man in particular as being the 'world just outside your window' and The Amazing Spider-Man #58 is a great demonstration of that idea at work.

    AIPT - David Brooke Jan 26, 2021

    Amazing Spider-Man #58 is a good start to the "Negative Space" story arc, tying closely to the family aspect of the characters. The relationships Peter has with these characters are the lifeblood of the issue, just as they were what made the original Stan Lee and Steve Ditko's runs so appealing. That aspect is captured well here. Read Full Review

    Weird Science Marvel Comics - wolfcypher Jan 27, 2021

    Although I left the previous arc somewhat unsatisfied in the end, I have to admit I was about ready for a break away into either new or different ground. This new arc begins with the typical “set-up” issue but it's paced very well and has great art. I've always felt Mister Negative was just one great story shy of becoming one of my favorite Spidey rogues. I'm eager to see what Spencer can do with this character. Read Full Review

    I legitimately could give this issue a negative review.....because of Mr. Negative.....but it's really pretty good. You're definitely going to want to grab this one, Read Full Review

    COMICON - James Ferguson Jan 28, 2021

    Martin Li holds off his evil other half as a fight breaks out with Aunt May caught in the center. Yet another new plot thread is introduced in an already crowded series. Would it kill them to tie a few of these up? Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Jan 30, 2021

    Amazing Spider-Man #58 was a good return to form after 'Last Remains' concluded to mixed results. The scene between Peter Parker and Liz Allen steals the show with how much emotion was packed in this scene. The involvement of Mr. Negative in this story also added an interesting wrinkle to the greater Kindred storyline that is coming out of 'Last Remains.' Hopefully the sense of urgency we get here is more of we get from Nick Spencer's run moving forward. Read Full Review

    The Comicbook Dispatch - acnbat Jan 26, 2021

    Final Thoughts:Nick Spencer will surely enrage some fans with this issue, but I prefer to look at it as Spencer slowly but surely beginning to tie up all the dangling threads he's left us. Not a must-buy by any means but it left this reviewer with a lot to think about and looking forward to the next issue. That's kind of the pint right? Read Full Review

    “Negative Space” Part I

    Publisher: @marvel
    Writer: Nick Spencer
    Artist: @marceloferreirahq

    Colorist: @morry.hollowell
    Cover: @officialmarkbagleyart, John Dell & @delgaduck
    Letterer: @joecaramagna

    The Negative Space story arc picks up in the aftermath of the Last Remains story arc. While Kindred still lingers and affecting Peter Parker as well as the closest people in his life, the focus shifts to Martin Li, aka Mr. Negative. Li has resurfaced and has taken refuge in the F.E.A.S.T. center with May Parker. However, Mister Negative’s demons threaten the center as well as Aunt May.

    It seems like the past few years on ASM were all set up arcs, and that this next phase of Nick Spencer's run is going to be pulling all those threads together. The Kindred stuff instead of being mentioned here and there, is going to be an ongoing narrative within other arcs, and it's all tied together. That's extremely rewarding for someone who's been reading this run since its first issue. Again, I hate to look like a blind fanboy with all these 10s lately, but I just really, really enjoy this comic in a way that most other comics can't compete with.

    While I was critical on Last Remains and the Post-Mortem, this issue I really liked. Art was nice, especially the opening. And to be frankly honest, having no answers to Kindred didn't bother me at all this week even though he is still looming. Negative Space surprised me in a positive way and made remember why I have enjoyed Spencer's run on ASM.

    Well, well, well. Kindred is behind bars (kind of...) and Peter can have a little brea... Of course not. I really like the fact that Martin Li used Sin-Eater to get rid of his Mr. Negative persona. The issue is very entertaining and I'm glad that the Kindred plot is still present (we finally discover the reason behind Fisk's hatred for him). Let's see what's next, Nick Spencer!
    P.S. A Green Goblin hideout in Liz Allan's house? Didn't see that coming. Also, wasn't Normie red haired like his father and his grandfather? Since when he's platinum blonde like his mother?

    Things don't look like they'll be back to normal for Spidey for a while. He's going to be reeling from his recent battle for a while. I expect when his life will start getting back on track that's when Kindred will strike again. In the mean time he has a lot to keep him busy. Aunt May hasn't been seen in a bit so it's interesting to see her caught in the action again. I don't know much about Mr. Negative, so this story will give me a chance to familiarize myself with him.
    The big mystery is the Goblin suit. What would that be for if he was walking about as some Zombie-like monstrosity? Interesting stuff. If you're reading these reviews to see if now is a good time to jump back in on Spider-Man's world, I haven't seen a time I could re more

    Not bad. Still can't grab me but just enough to keep me interested. The art from Ferreira wasn't as good as previous issues in my opinion.

    I didnt think it was that bad. I felt like it was a pretty solid read overall and I actually like that they still havent moved on fully from last remains.

    Isn't Nick Spencer's run coming to an end? Could we possibly get anything satisfying with Mr. Negative getting involved so late into the run? I guess I'm literally dreading to find out...

    A seamless transition into a new saga. Mr. Negative feels like Mr.Scarface here and I am a sucker for that TNBA shit. Harry Osborn's kid revealing the glider to his mother was priceless. But seriously, is Liz really that much of a dumb blonde to not realize Peter is Spidey after hearing Pete and Norman going at it in the hallway? Well, she's definitely deaf.
