We haven't seen Chasm since ASM #894 and the FCBD issue, but that doesn't mean he hasn't been busy.
Join us for this very special issue featuring Spidey's most dangerous new villain as well as the Goblin Queen and a BRAND-NEW villain that you won't believe.

    Comic Watch - Dustin Gebel Nov 23, 2022

    Amazing Spider-Man #14 is a promising start to Dark Web, breaking away from Spider-Man to showcase a year in the life of Chasm, Janine, and the Goblin Queen. The additional page count allows the creative teams to compress a year into four, visually distinct sections while building the emotion at the epicenter of this issue. It feels like Dark Web is the story Wells has really wanted to tell since taking over Spider-Man, and that shows on every page. Fans of Hellions and Beyond will want to pick this up, and for the most part, can skip the previous issues of Amazing. Read Full Review

    The Dodson's evoke a real sense of tragedy in "Fall" and Ryan Stegman makes clear that hell is coming for both Spider-Man and X-Men comics in "Winter." Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett Nov 23, 2022

    Amazing Spider-Man #14 is an interesting issue. It feels like something that might normally be a "zero issue or one-shot leading into an event. "Dark Web kicking off in a regular issue that doesn't feature Spider-Man or anyone else other than the villains is interesting in a lot of ways. Overall, it's a nice issue that delivers motivation but doesn't quite have that punch that really excites. Still, it's more than enough to keep me interested in the event to come. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Nov 23, 2022

    Amazing Spider-Man #14 has just enough detail to give readers a sense of what we're in store for with Dark Web, but it's mostly half-baked. The players are present, and how they get together is clear, but the motivations behind their actions and goals remain vague or secret. The creators have stated that it takes inspiration from the Inferno event and Mutant Massacre, which might be why this issue doesn't feel like a Spider-Man book. I'm optimistic about the upcoming event, but if you're looking for a deep look at the characters underneath the rage and revenge, you can skip it entirely. Read Full Review

    Weird Science Marvel Comics - mrgabehernandez Nov 24, 2022

    Amazing Spider-Man #14 sets up the Dark Web event with a Spider-Man-free issue that focuses entirely on Ben Reilly. The plan Ben devises with Janine, and Madelyne is audacious, but this issue is just planning. Did this need to be an Amazing Spider-Man comic? No, it should have been a one-shot or zero-issue, but at least you get a taste of what's in store for the Dark Web event. Read Full Review

    This was not what I expected but a good read. It's got 4 different set teams which is usually something I hate, but it worked for this story. Ben'a new suit is pure badass and one of the only character redesigns I've liked in a long time. Can't wait for this event to start.

    It's not bad. It has good parts. It also doesn't feel like an Amazing Spider-Man book which is why I am docking it a little. I get we need set up, but it be nice to get some Peter in his book.

    this issue was okay to be honest. Not bad, but not good either.

    The whole idea of Dark Web has been so confusing to me. Having an event so soon after Wells started his run feels odd. Since I don't feel enough has happened character-wise to Peter.

    And then the event itself. Crossover between X-Men, Venom and Spider-Man to fight demons from Limbo? That really doesn't feel like a Spider-Man event, even if Ben is the antagonist. But the idea of Ben doing that also just feels so... odd. Clone Conspiracy has it's issues, but at least it felt like a Spider-Man event and not just random stuff mashed together. I just... I don't see this working.

    So with those thoughts, I still wanted to give Dark Web a chance. Because I have been enjoying Wells' run mostly. The whole run has ideas I heavil more

    I think I'll check out Spider-man once they drop this Dark Web trash. As of now, I'm done with ASM. Collected up to this issue and I'm just sick of it, lackluster, no story at all. Sorry, it sucks. Better comics are out there that actually still have talented writers and care about story, so I'll put my hard earned money toward that.

    Total let down especially with the first 5 issues being much better (Though that is not saying much). This pile of dog poop is unreadable, forgettable gibberish, I did not even finish reading it. BORING. DULL. LAME. UNIMAGINATIVE. It all went down hill since the Axe Judgement day stuck it's nose in ASM and ruined the pace. Dark web not more
