    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally May 12, 2021

    There is great art throughout the issue. The story switches from character driven moments to pulse pounding action and the art does a brilliant job of showcasing both of those things. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke May 10, 2021

    The most important thing you'll discover with Giant-Size Amazing Spider-Man: King's Ransom is that it's not a cash grab extra-sized issue simply to charge more. There's plenty of story here, big reveals, and important moments. In fact, this issue closes the door on multiple ongoing plots, which makes it satisfying as hell and sets the stage for a clean slate going forward. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Collier "CJ" Jennings May 11, 2021

    Giant-Size Amazing Spider-Man: King's Ransom #1 closes the book on one of the longest-running threads in Nick Spencer's Spider-Man run, with plenty of action and a story grounded in human reaction. Spencer and company have yet to disappoint me with their Spidey stories and with a huge storyline on the horizon for this summer, it appears that Peter Parker will have no shortage of issues to deal with.

    The Comicbook Dispatch - ozwoods May 10, 2021

    Giant-Size Amazing Spider-Man: King's Ransom #1 is a huge payoff to readers who've enjoyed Nick Spencer's story, specifically Spider-Man and Boomerang's oddball friendship. However, this issue may also letdown some of those very fans or maybe excite them for what's to come. The multiple artists and the colorist come through for the comic's characters and action for this conclusion to the current story arc. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez May 13, 2021

    When it comes to the resolutions for Spider-Man, Boomerang, and Wilson Fisk arcs we get in Nick Spencer is very successful in the story he presents in Giant-Size Amazing Spider-Man: King's Ransom #1. There is a lot accomplished that creates even greater potential for future stories down the line. Unfortunately there are choices made with other characters that are just frustrating. Spencer really needs to find a Striking a better balance with how many plotlines are juggled in one story. If not the frustrating parts of his work on Amazing Spider-Man will overshadow the fun and engaging aspects of this run. Read Full Review

    COMICON - James Ferguson May 14, 2021

    The Lifeline Tablet storyline wraps up, not with a bang, but a thud. Inconsistent artwork hampers this overwritten story, leading up to a cliffhanger that falls flat. At least a few loose ends are tied up in this extra issue. Read Full Review
