    I surprising change of pace issue that doesn't slow down the action of the story much at all. I can't stress how much this issue was needed to get the audience behind the main character, as I have a feeling there are people that are still resistant to the change. Read Full Review

    Pichelli delivers some impressive and beautifully dramatic art to this issue. The dark tone of the story and some of its story moments are perfectly captured with Pichellis style. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Elias Rosner Nov 1, 2021

    This is another very strong issue of "Amazing Spider-Man," despite some artistic hiccups that distract from the otherwise excellent art, proving the Beyond Board can do the impossible and not only make Spider-Man feel exciting again, they can make Ben Reilly's adventures as compelling as, if not more than, Peter's.

    AIPT - David Brooke Oct 27, 2021

    Amazing Spider-Man's new erahas a lot going for it. Thompson and Pichelli get a lot done in this issue, touching on multiple relationships while also delivering some tense action to close the book out. The exciting, messy, exhausting, and complicated life of Spider-Man is on full display. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Collier "CJ" Jennings Oct 27, 2021

    Amazing Spider-Man #77 takes a bit of a breather in the Beyond Saga, delving deeper into the Beyond Corporation and presenting new challenges for Ben Reilly to face. Unfortunately, though he's trying to be a better Spider-Man, Ben may have inherited the infamous "Parker Luck," and the cliffhanger at the end only reinforces that. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Nov 1, 2021

    The art is stellar, the story moves quick, but the editorial staff left a number of problems through, including misspelling the villain's name twice. It's good, though. Read Full Review

    The Comicbook Dispatch - ozwoods Oct 27, 2021

    Amazing Spider-Man #77 is the start of the “Beyond” storyline and it's a weird one. There's a general tone of quirkiness in the characters from Ben Reilly to the staff of the Beyond Corporation. Fans of Kelly Thompson may like this, but mileage will vary for other readers. The plot focuses more on showing what Ben's everyday life is like as a super-hero now. It establishes the challenges Ben will have balancing his hero life and personal life. However, the bigger plot does kick in a little later in the comic, so there's some intrigue leading into the next issue. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Oct 28, 2021

    After seeing Ben in action for the past couple of issues, The Amazing Spider-Man #77 takes a step back and examines the life of a corporate super-hero trying to live up to both internal and external expectations. If Ben is likely to have struggles, they may be more from Beyond than what he faces on the streets. It's more building block than standalone issue, although it does offer Spidey versus Morbius for a late fight cliffhanger. Read Full Review
