    If you're fresh to comics, new to Spider-Man, or are interested in coming back to the character, this is a fantastic issue to give Peter Parker another try. If youve been down on AMAZING SPIDER-MAN lately, this is a fun and refreshing adventure that will rejuvenate and rekindle your love for the series and character again. This was a hilariously fun adventure for our wonderful wall-crawler that showcased some of the best talents Marvel has to offer today. Comic fans would be foolish to leave this on the rack. Pick it up, give it a try, and let me know what you think. It truly was a fantastic read. Read Full Review

    Do you have to read it? Not at all. Do you want to see if they can pull off such a wacky extra-sized story? If you read as many comics as me the answer is definitely yes.  Read Full Review

    Amazing Spider-Man: Full Circle is one of the most novel, creative, and interesting Marvel comics of 2019. In the words of Peter himself, "it was pretty convoluted," but we mean that in the best way possible. Read Full Review

    This book has no reason to exist. And yet it provided all the reasoning to exist and entertain. Amazingly this book isn't a mess, it has a story that is entertaining and respects the character of spider man. Such a slew of talent came together to write this love letter to Marvel's best character and it shows, especially with the ending. The art throughout is magnificent also, and the dialogue is very quippy and entertaining. My favorite parts were probably the beginning and the end, the story is still interesting in the middle but that's where it gets a little messy, but still entertaining. I just can't believe marvel put out a book like this

    This was pretty good and I had a good if occasionally confused time reading it.

    With such a powerhouse of creators, was there any chance this would not be great?

    An amazing (get it?) one shot. Some many writers and artist by the amount alone could have easily made this comic go wrong, but they manage to create a great story and visuals to go with it. It always had me guessing and it has a beautiful message at the end. Nothing else to say except, thank you to everyone who work on this Amazing Spider-Man tale.

    Bought the blank cover to this one. Excellent story, very creative. Some of the best spidey art out currently out there. I wouldn’t mind more of these kind of books, but not just spidey and marvel. Imagine Spawn or flash with this format. I works well.

    This was really well done. Which isn't surprising given the creators on this book. But what really blew me away was how they were able to stick the landing the way they did to create a pretty poignant message about Spider-Man as a character. As you can see in the back-up section with everyone's messages about the final chapter, Nick Spencer, Gerry Duggan and Al Ewing were the real stars of that. I think you can see their strengths come out here. Gerry Duggan got everyone on the right track, he's good with ideas. Just look at his work. Full of good ideas, even if sometimes the execution is lacking. Al Ewing is a problem solver and knows how to take disparate elements and create a cohesive whole with them, as he does here. He knows how to sol more

    I loved this. I figured it'd be pretty fun to kind of rank the separate stories in this issue, like I sometimes do with anthologies. So, without further ado…

    Part 2: Right off the bat, Smallwood's art is great. Gerry Duggan's dialogue is wonderful, as per usual, and I love the way he writes Spider-Man. Ferretland is a super interesting setting for an action sequence and Duggan's reservations with it are great, because it lets Spencer really have fun with the concept. Also, I'm pretty use Duggan wrote the ending as a "F*ck it," but it ended up being a key part of many of the other stories. 10/10

    Part 5: Right off the bat, you can tell Al Ewing is having fun. Sprouse's art is really fitting for that tone as well. It's more

    Great attempt that somehow worked. The beginning all the way to the second/third part and at the end were tight and beautiful. It got crazy loopy and stupid at the middle but I think Spencer and Duggan pulled off the ending.
    Also can Smallwood do like 100 issues straight of Spider-Man I'll buy 2 of each!!

    Very odd bur in a good way. It was a really fun story with some great art throughout.

    In my opinion, Chip Zdarsky's segment launches the story over a shark. The whole thing wound up good but not great for me -- I think a more satisfying ending wouldn't need a "behind the scenes" explanation afterward.

    Art nerd trivia: This form of follow-the-leader collaboration is what the OG surrealists called an "exquisite corpse."
