    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally May 19, 2021

    Bagley has a brilliant eye for character and scope. There is an intimacy to this story and that comes through in the art with its use of close ups and two shots. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke May 19, 2021

    Spider-Man's life is never simple, and that shows in Amazing Spider-Man #66. The series seems to be disassembling its pieces to set in motion a new direction, and for that, this issue is an exciting chapter. Amazing Spider-Man has become a puzzle to solve, which helps make the complicated web of its narrative more interesting to read. Read Full Review

    The Comicbook Dispatch - ozwoods May 19, 2021

    Amazing Spider-Man #66 shows the aftermath of King's Ransom and sets up the next big story arc or several. However, there's only story setup and a few surprise character re-introductions to set up future stories. Some that Spider-Man fans may or may not remember. It also talks about how big of a deal The Rose's return is but never shows or even explains why. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez May 22, 2021

    While the developments around Kindred are what this issue will be remembered for it is the focus around where Peter Parker is both personally and as Spider-Man where Amazing Spider-Man #66 shines. You get the feeling everything that happens here is the calm before the storm. Now if Nick Spencer can get a better handle on giving time to develop sub-plots beyond their introduction this series would be even better. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Collier "CJ" Jennings May 19, 2021

    Amazing Spider-Man #66 feels rather disjointed, opting to set up a number of plot points for future stories that don't fully cohere. It does continue to prove that Mark Bagley is one of the best Spider-Man artists in the business. Hopefully, the next story arc will be smoother, more engaging, and sticks the landing.

    General maintenance is the name of the game as Amazing Spider-Man cleans up some loose ends and prepares for its next story arc. It's fine. Read Full Review

    411Mania - Timothy Quail May 26, 2021

    Good art, but a disappointing wrap-up to a disappointing story that serves as a disappointing end to the Boomerang story arc, and I'm unsure about where this story is going anymore. Read Full Review
