    But Why Tho? - William Tucker Jan 25, 2023

    Amazing Spider-Man #18 is a comic that truly understands fun. This whole crossover has been terrific at keeping the tone light and constantly hilarious. Its not this dark, melancholic atmosphere that weighs heavily on the reader whilst reading. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Jan 25, 2023

    If it wasn't evident yet, Amazing Spider-Man #18 solidifies that this is bonkers, fun adventure times for Spidey and his amazing friends. That goes for demon-turned-Spider-Man Rek-Rap, the ridiculous Insidious Six, and even Chasm going Super Saiyan. Sure, Spider-Man is typically a more serious series, and it has been under Wells at times, but if you see what Dark Web has been from the start, you'll have the most fun. Read Full Review

    Perhaps the single most impressive feat in this issue is how seamlessly it weaves the tones of over-the-top comedy and continuity-laden pathos into a single narrative that lands both its laughs and sighs. Read Full Review

    McGuiness delivers some beautiful art in the issue. There are some great dramatic poses, visually engaging action and a great scope to the world of the characters. Read Full Review

    I get that comics have to have crossovers, and I understand why they can be popular, but at this point I would love to return to regular scheduling programming! There are still overhanging web threads that need resolving. Like a good meal, things take a while to simmer; if you leave it to long though, the meal is spoiled. I would hate for that to happen to what was a revitalised Spider-Man book. Read Full Review

    Weird Science Marvel Comics - mrgabehernandez Jan 26, 2023

    Amazing Spider-Man #18 is somehow worse than issue #17 because it tries to continue #17's (poorly written) humor while attempting to mix it with hard-hitting, serious moments. Neither the drama nor the humor works, so by trying to do both, you wind up with neither, and the big reveal at the end lands with a mild thud. Read Full Review
