    But Why Tho? - Collier "CJ" Jennings Feb 24, 2021

    Amazing Spider-Man #60essentially acts as a one-act play, letting Peter Parker bare his soul while laying down the next step in Nick Spencer's master plan. The next issue offers a new costume for Spider-Man and a new job, and I hope that both continue to steer Peter back to where he was when writer J. Michael Straczynski was writing Amazing Spider-Man.

    Bagley delivers some brilliant imagery throughout this issue. The characters look great and the character focus of the issue allows for the art to showcase character emotion. Read Full Review

    I'm really hoping that Spencer and Bagley continue this run for a long, long time. They play very well off each other, and the true winner is the reader!! Read Full Review

    Weird Science Marvel Comics - wolfcypher Feb 25, 2021

    Nick Spencer delivers a great read while Mark Bagley pulls his weight with fantastic art. Spencer continues to carry on the Kindred saga by peppering in these stories around other arcs, and while he's done this before throughout the early half of his run, this Kindred-related intermission is one of the more engaging ones. If Spencer is going to draw out the Kindred saga even longer, I welcome more stories like this one. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Feb 26, 2021

    Amazing Spider-Man #60 was a strong return to form to what Nick Spencer does best with his run on this series. The focus on Peter Parker and Mary Jane Watson made the progress in the ongoing Kindred Saga much more compelling. While some may not like the fact that One More Day and Brand New Day are being brought back into play Spencer has done enough to create investment in at least giving these plot elements a chance to be explored within this ongoing story.

    COMICON - James Ferguson Feb 24, 2021

    Peter Parker confronts his trauma in a touching monologue, although we're still light on answers as we return to the mystery of Kindred. Hope is on the horizon with a huge cliffhanger that could have some dire consequences for the wall-crawler. Read Full Review

    The Comicbook Dispatch - ozwoods Feb 24, 2021

    Either way, if there's anything to take from this, it's that the comic is finally bringing this up and will be actively exploring the storyline. It'll probably remain in the background until Spencer finishes his upcoming Crime War arc. Read Full Review

    Loved that we get to a bit of healing for Peter before the next arc and affirms a solid grasp on his strongest relationship. Even thought Last Remains didn't hit the mark fully the ending for this issues opens many things and will surely have fans pumped for what comes next

    These last few issues have been an epilogue to Last Remains and I've enjoyd each part more and more. And this one especially nails it. Even though Last Remains was a bit disappointing in the end, this issue feels to fix it in so many ways. The art is great (as usual by Bagley) and Spencer's writing is truly great. We finally hear what Peter has to say about Kindred and it is as good as expected.

    Spencer has written this series very well mostly and this continues to showcase why I love his take on Spidey.

    This was a great emotional issue. I really hope the Mephisto tease means we're on our way to undoing OMD.

    There is not much to add to this review other than it was just a great number.

    Peter has been through a lot and god that woman MJ is just an oak, a woman who is a civilian but has a lot of hero, a perfect match. I was worth every penny invested in this comic.

    Emotional, I love it, MJ as always being his anchor is a couple that fascinates me, indisputably the best couple in comics.

    It's very good but I have no idea why this wasn't done 5 issues back. I like Spencer but this run has way too much filler and drag. The ideas are great and few issues are exceptional but the sum is very OK. I hope he ends it well. Bagley is fantastic as usual and gives it the classic feel it was going for.

    A very good issue that delves into the emotional struggles of peter and moves the story along. Both the writing and art are fantastic I love the depth of spencer's writing he is a fantastic writer

    MJ takes the reins, putting Peter through a tormented but cathartic bit of soul-searching. Ratcheting the scale down as small as possible pays off here, with excellent emotional work coming out of the intense script. The art is also on point in this issue; Mark Bagley serves up a reminder that he's a GOOD fast Spider-artist. This script needs a lot of nuanced, emotional faces and Mr. Bagley absolutely delivers.

    This was a good issue, and to be able to have actual progression for a character that's almost 60 years old is itself quite a feat. However, Spencer needs to cross the finish line competently for this story or his run will be regarded as one of the most meaningless runs in SM history.

Desperate to save his son, Norman pleaded to Peter to help reform his son, but Peter refused and vowed to never be involved with the Osborn family ever again. The “Last Remains” event shook Peter to his bones and he has been on edge since its conclusion. Peter now finds himself str more

    This issue was interesting enough but a little weak. The last page shows that Nick Spencer may be trying to undo the damage One More Day seemed to do over a decade ago. Personally I never did read it so I don't know much about it. But from what I do know I'd say it has a major part in Kindred's origin. I'm wondering if he's even Harry at all. This could have been part of what Mephisto's planned all along. Harry did return from the dead around that point, but was it ever really Harry? Perhaps he's still as dead and has been since Spectacular #200. It's only a theory though.
    I hope we see more of this confrontation between Dr. Strange and Mephisto in the next issue and not have to wait a dozen or more issues to learn what happened. I hat more

    What I like about Spencer's writing on Spider-Man is that his writing is very retro, if you would have some art from the 60s in the background this would totally fit in that era.

    Is this a real issue? A whole issue about... Nothing? Nothing happens. And when it does it looks out of place. The MJ story-arc smells like sh*t. The only redeeming part is the last page (no spoiler).

    Nick Spencer has ruined Spider-Man. How many issues has he written where Spider-Man only shows up on one page? Too many, in my opinion. This used to be my #1 book every month but now I dread reading it. His storylines over the past two years have been a joke. And now he’s goi g to tarnish the legacy even more with a new, hideous costume.

    God help up.
