    McGuiness delivers beautifully detailed and action packed art that has a fluid energy to it. I love the visual style and look forward to seeing how the action ramps up in the next issue. Read Full Review

    This series really needs to continue to focus on these types of stories. It's strong story telling by the entire team, and it makes me glad to continue to pick up this book. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Tyler Davis Jul 12, 2023

    With Ed McGuinness and Marcio Manyz delivering their strongest work thus far on the series, The Amazing Spider-Man #29is an undeniably fun issue that plants some interesting and potentially exciting seeds for the title. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Jul 12, 2023

    Ultimately, Amazing Spider-Man #29 is a silly comic that leans on art to bring entertainment value. The story is rather simplistic. There isn't any deep psychological character work, but simply an evil villain doing evil things. It's very much a comic of another time, which should satisfy many and you can't go wrong with how dynamic and cool this art looks. Read Full Review

    Weird Science Marvel Comics - mrgabehernandez Jul 12, 2023

    Amazing Spider-Man is a step in the right direction for Spidey with a few twists, stakes (for Norman Osborn), and potential. Wells can't help injecting an unnecessarily jokey tone that diminishes the dramatic atmosphere, but the plot is starting to take shape into something possibly worth reading. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Jul 13, 2023

    Wells is mixing comedy and serious drama in a way that makes it kind of difficult to interface with the center of the story. A few pages before the end of the issue, its just...silly. It all kind of falls apart by the end, but there ARE some really good moments splattered throughout the issue that almost reach a kind of brilliance with some very witty dialogue by Wells.  Read Full Review

    This was... surprisingly good (aka decent/not a dumpsterfire like usual).

    Do not get me wrong, there are still a lot of janky parts to it, and why throw Rek-rap into is randomly. They even joke in the notes that he is not plot relevant. Being aware of your poor writing, doesnt make it better Zeb.

    All that being said, Doc Ock is here with good reason, and I like where the arc is going. Norman possibly getting reverted back- I dont know how I feel about that. This almost feels like Zeb is putting 'the toys back in the box' to end his run, but we will see.

    Honestly this arc, totally on its own isnt all that bad. Its serviceable. However, it is apart of a much larger, dumpsterfire of a run. I do look forward to more

    It had some fun and some interesting scenes with Norman and Otto. Still just feels short of what it could be.

    The ongoing story here is good and entertaining, but I can't help but agree with the criticisms about this issue surrounding Kamala's death in Issue 26. In Issue 27, we really felt the fallout of her death and how it was impacting Peter. In the last issue and in this one, her death is completely ignored and Peter is back to normal. We don't see that more aggressive and frustrated side of him we saw two issues ago. I was reading through Afre's review and, while I do rate this higher than them, they bring up a lot of points that I agree with. Read their review for said points, as I won't bring them up directly here. Aside from all of that, I do actually enjoy the story here with Norman and Otto. I'm looking forward to seeing how this progress more

    The art is the highlight. Could have done without the Rek-Rap tease. I really don't need to be reminded on Dark Web. I also guess we get a tease of Ock remembering and being bitter about his time as Superior Spider-Man and missing it? Would be nice if that was fleshed out more.

    There is some really good stuff here. Art is nice. Otto getting his memories back from Superior era is not something I was expecting. And that it was his main driving force is a very interesting plot. So mostly, this issue should be passable or good.

    If it not for some major issues.

    First, the placement. It's kinda horrible to be honest. Khamala died three issues ago and we haven't seen it affect anyone here really. We are now getting a wacky Doc Ock story, when it really should be an interlude or character study.

    You know, about Peter? How does he feel for a teenage hero to die under his watch? How does he feel about Kamala's law? He should be very conflicted, for he was one of the first teenagers who becam more
