    The Amazing Spider-Man #78.BEY is a super fun, high-energy thrill ride of a comic. It's filled with ideas from horror movie icons popping up and smart tech innovations. It reads like a satisfying one-shot and yet comes with a "to be continued" at the end to make you want more. It perfectly captures the Spider-Man vibe, even though he's not present for much of the adventure. Now that's good comics. Read Full Review

    A surprisingly awesome "between" issue that hits the mark on the story it's telling as well as adds to the overall big picture to this era ofAmazing Spider-Man. Both story and art are worth writing home about. Or text home about. I don't know, do whatever you want, just pick up this issue. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Collier "CJ" Jennings Nov 15, 2021

    Amazing Spider-Man #78.BEY places the focus on the Daughters of the Dragon, resulting in a comic that plays like a superhero buddy movie. With the Daughters now wary of Beyond's CEO Maxine Danger, and enlisting the help of another superhero, I look forward to seeing more of their antics in the Beyond Saga. In fact, I'm continuing to hope that more adventures await them in the future. Read Full Review

    The Comicbook Dispatch - StoryBabbler Nov 17, 2021

    Amazing Spider-Man #78.1 is a fun little tie-in to the main series but doesn't really add much to the main Beyond storyline. It feels like non-essential reading and is more of a fun misadventure starring Misty Knight and Colleen Wing on a side-mission for Maxine Danger and the Beyond Corporation. The quirky tone is in overdrive with Misty and Colleen as they face the new "villain" in the comic, who is unimpressive yet functional to get the plot going. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - M.R. Jafri Nov 17, 2021

    The art throughout features fantastic layouts but looks entirely unfinished and rushed. Certain artists benefit from a great inker, and Carlini may be one of them. Overall this book feels like all the worst elements of a crossover, flimsy story-telling, rushed art, poor characterization and no connection to the character who's name is on the book. These characters deserve better and these creators can do better. Hopefully the main book gives these characters a chance to be more true to themselves. Read Full Review
