    But Why Tho? - Collier "CJ" Jennings Oct 13, 2021

    Amazing Spider-Man #76 expertly balances action with emotion, as Ben Reilly and Peter Parker wrestle with mental and emotional challenges. With the Beyond era fully set up, I look forward to what the creative team of Kelly Thompson and Sara Pichelli bring to the table in two weeks. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Johnny "The Machine" Hughes Oct 16, 2021

    Despite containing two of my most hated aspects of Spider-Man, this book was a fantastic read, for the most part. The key for the books success will be how different Ben is to Peter and will the villains know the difference. Next up is Kelly Thompson who has been on fire on Captain Marvel. Thompson excels at the dialogue between characters, so it will interesting to see that style, even if it isn't Peter Parker. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Oct 13, 2021

    It's very hard to convince readers that a mainline superhero might die, and yet the creative team has done it here. You're going to be on the edge of your seat not knowing if Peter Parker may die while also wrapping your head around the idea of Ben Reilly earning the right to be Spider-Man at such a difficult transition. Amazing Spider-Man #76 is a tense issue that is shocking because of how much the comic makes you feel. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Oct 13, 2021

    Patrick Gleason delivers some thrilling visuals throughout the issue. There is great action as well as great character moments between Peter and the people in his life. I liked the last few images a lot and they had an interesting 90's aesthetic. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett Oct 13, 2021

    I'm not the biggest Spider-Man fan. Amazing Spider-Man #76 ups the soapy drama of the series while delivering something that feels new and different. For this casual fan, it's an entertaining read. Most importantly, it has me wanting to see what's next and come back for more. Read Full Review

    COMICON - Tony Thornley Oct 15, 2021

    Things get dire for Peter Parker and Ben Reilly in very different ways. The creative team comes together to create one of the most intense Spider-Man stories in years, grounded in the mundane, rather than the fantastic. Read Full Review

    The Comicbook Dispatch - ozwoods Oct 13, 2021

    Amazing Spider-Man #76 is the issue fans have been dreading. This comic holds nothing back showing the injured critical state Peter is in after the fight with the U-Foes. It continues to contrasts the lives of both Peter and Ben, as they both deal with the important matter of being Spider-Man. That is the comic's main focus and the writing and art do everything they can to emotionally pull at readers' heartstrings while Peter is hospitalized. With Peter down, and Ben Reilly taking over as Spider-Man, the Beyond storyline will have to bring its A-game. Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Oct 16, 2021

    The writing and art do a great job of setting up the new direction of the series and I think it could all be a lot of fun " it's just that this issue feels a bit like an afterthought of the previous issue. Read Full Review

  • 7.0 - Chase Magnett Oct 13, 2021

    This sophomore outing maintains all of last week's strengths with clear character work and outstanding artistic contributions, but it also fails to provide a clear hook or provide more than half-steps forward for either of its leading heroes. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Oct 18, 2021

    This issue excels in its character moments, from the Ben/Peter interaction to May dressing down the doctors to the Beyond Spider-support team, but the art is a little bit sketchy and lacking in detail for my tastes. Even so, it's a interesting change in the status quo. Read Full Review
