    The first real Boomerang issue comes out swinging. Peter Parker's life may just rival his superhero life in this excellent take on the character. Read Full Review

    AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #6 continues to prove that Nick Spencer's direction for the character is something to embrace, not shun. I love this freer Peter Parker, and the antics of this issue are extremely fun to watch. Plus, it's got art from Humberto Ramos. What's not to love? Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Harlan Ivester Sep 26, 2018

    I’m very happy to see Amazing Spider-Man picking up steam again. Everything about Spencer’s writing is so beautifully executed, it’s got me itching to go back and read Superior Foes again. Ramos and Victor Olazaba create a very flexible but overall fun perspective and Delgado ties it all up in a neat bow. There's no need for me to qualify buyers here. I simply have to recommend this book to any and every reader. Go buy it. Read Full Review

    On Comics Ground - Alec Thorn Sep 27, 2018

    A good tension-breaker for the web-head, with lots of well-done comedy, art, and character moments, but needing a bit more from the latter. Read Full Review

    Monkeys Fighting Robots - Brandon J. Griffin Sep 26, 2018

    Amazing Spider-Man #6 is one of the funniest superhero comic book issues I've read in a while. Spencer has completely commandeered the tone and reshaped it to better redefine and realign the character. This is the Spider-Man of the new era and it feels like home in every way. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Sep 26, 2018

    Ramos' art is great. It's very subtle at moments and adds to the charm of this particular issue. The lack of big action beats lets the artist concentrate more on the characters and there are some great facial details in this issue. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - John Jack Oct 19, 2018

    Better than last arc, this arc so far hasn't blown my mind but I will continue buying it for now. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Sep 26, 2018

    Amazing Spider-Man #6 delivers an amusing detour, but the art isn't quite up to snuff. Read Full Review

    Geekery Magazine - Chino DT Sep 26, 2018

    I must say that I followed the last issues of The Amazing Spiderman, which started with Ryan Ottley in "Back to Basics" and now continued by Ramos with "A Trivial Pursuit", I just hope that this arc does not have a hurry ending as the last number, personally I felt a little disappointed with many forced situations there, the plot still weak but improved a bit and regained my interest in the series.

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Sep 29, 2018

    The creativity and sheer fun of this issue keeps it afloat, whereas it otherwise seems determined not to be about Spider-Man. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Corps - Clayton Hinojosa Oct 2, 2018

    As "fun" as this issue was, and a bit out of the ordinary. Peter Parker playing Spider-Man trivia night with a bar full of super villains did not impress me. Spider-Man is one-hundred percent a top tier character in the Marvel Universe and should be an eye opening book that flies off the comic book stands. This series is unfortunately par for now. I believe every writer has the potential to write amazing stories. Let's just hope Nick Spencer knows what he is building up to, and that he changes directions sooner rather than later.

    After a very disappointing opening arc, hope springs eternal as Amazing Spider-Man begins to course correct. Read Full Review
