    Comic Watch - Dustin Gebel Oct 27, 2022

    The Amazing Spider-Man #12 halts the strong momentum it got going with its last issue, delivering another middling issue that feels like a hollow entry into the characters history. Its a shame that a book written by Zeb Wells feels lifeless, as the writer is a talented creator with plenty of talent for writing emotionally resonating and gut-splitting funny comics, as Hellions makes abundantly clear. But whether it's the burden that comes with writing Marvels cash cow, or the cropped scheduling for the character and the necessary tie-ins, it's clear that something is holding this book back. Pairing that amazing writer with Romita Jr, Hanna, and Menyz, who are providing some of the best Spider-Man art of recent years is extra salt in the wounds, and it's a bitter reminder of what could be.
