    A very well-done issue. Seriously, this series just continues to get better. The writing team is really working as a team, and the artists that have been chosen are totally on point. Run out and get this one on Wednesday, that way if the football game on Thanksgiving Day stinks, you'll have something to read! Read Full Review

    The Comicbook Dispatch - StoryBabbler Nov 24, 2021

    Amazing Spider-Man #79 continues the Beyond storyline with Kraven The Hunter as the lead villain. The story explores more of Ben Reilly's emotional stakes not just for this comic but for the Beyond storyline as a whole. Readers will also get some cool, good-old-fashioned Spidey super-heroics. When it finally transitions to Kraven's part in the comic, the art is well done, the characters look good, and the action is clear, dynamic, and easy to follow. Read Full Review

    When focused on the superhero aspect Amazing Spider-Man #79 is at its best. There is still a lot of work to get Ben Reilly over without the mask but at least he is starting to get comfortable as Spider-Man. The set-up for this Kraven storyline has all the makings for a fun arc that will challenge Ben to prove himself as Spider-Man. Read Full Review
