    But Why Tho? - Charles Hartford Sep 15, 2020

    So, to summarize, The Amazing Spider-Man: The Sins of Norman Osborn #1delivers an exciting, and emotional story, that comes with a bit of baggage. While its still thoroughly enjoyable without all the details, there are story points that might not fully land if you arent up on all things Spider-Man. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Sep 16, 2020

    Federico Vicentini has some awesome, action-packed art that reflects the tension and tone of the story. There is an emotional element to the art that Vicentini is able to bring out through the panels especially in the moments between Norman and Peter. The reveal of the prisoner being kept at the bottom of the institute is handled brilliantly as well. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Sep 17, 2020

    If you are reading "Sins Rising" in the main series then Amazing Spider-Man: The Sins of Norman Osborn is a must read. Nick Spencer provides a lot of key details for the story with Spider-Man, Sin-Eater, Norman Osborn, and the newly formed Order of the Web. The choice to make this important chapter in "Sins Rising" be told in a one-shot is questionable. Fans who do pick this issue up will get a lot out of it heading into Amazing Spider-Man #49.

    AIPT - David Brooke Sep 15, 2020

    As a build toward Amazing Spider-Man #850, this book works. It sets things up, allows new readers to pick the story up here, and establishes plenty of surprises to follow. However, if you've read Amazing Spider-Man #48, it also feels a bit unnecessary save for a couple reveals. That said, it also sets up the milestone issue to feel even bigger, requiring a lead-in comic to get the full experience. In that way then it works and is definitely worth reading. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Harlan Ivester Sep 16, 2020

    I’m afraid that this issue may disappoint some readers only because of the implications of its title vs. the actual story, but that story is certainly good enough by its own merits. I haven’t been 100% onboard with this arc, but Spencer is pulling me in by ramping up the tension with each new chapter. The artists communicate so much in each panel while maintaining an appreciated room for subtlety. If all that doesn’t sound good enough for you, you’ll want to read it anyway because you’ll otherwise be pretty confused when the next issue comes around. Read Full Review
