    I'm so sick and tired of telling you just how great this book is. BUY it!! READ it! Then read it again, because every issue in the Beyond Era is worth multiple reads. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Jan 5, 2022

    The Beyond Corp era of Spider-Man continues to be a delightful juggling of Ben Reilly's personal life, supervillain intrigue, and the continued reveal of what Beyond Corp is really up to. If you've been itching for more Doc Ock, The Amazing Spider-Man #84 delivers him as the main course and he's written and drawn expertly well. Read Full Review

    Otto Octavius makes a splashy return in one of the best issues of the Beyond era to date. The writing is sharp and the art nails Doc Ock, though Spidey is a bit stiff. All-in-all though, it's a winner! Read Full Review

    The Comicbook Dispatch - StoryBabbler Jan 5, 2022

    Amazing Spider-Man #84 delivers a solid comic book as Ben Reilly comes face-to-face with Doctor Octopus. The writer nails down the pacing, dialogue, and characterization of both main characters, while the art team make the comic book look good and dynamic from start to finish. On top of that, this comic actually moves the Beyond storyline forward a bit, and hopefully we get more in the next issue. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Jan 7, 2022

    Amazing Spider-Man #84 was a solid chapter in the Beyond direction. Cody Ziglar and Paco Medina did a great job with how they wrote and drew, respectively, Doctor Otto Octavius. This portrayal made Doc Ock instantly one of the most interesting characters in the Beyond era. How Ben Reilly's Spider-Man and the Beyond Corporation respond to Doc Ock's actions in this issue will be very interesting to see play out. Read Full Review

    If asked what happens in these pages, it's difficult to say more than, "Doc Ock returns." That may be enough to provide some style points, but it doesn't make a $3.99 comic seem any more satisfying upon reflection. Read Full Review
