    I cannot state how impressive this run has been to date. We are clearly heading somewhere with this book, giving that we are not that far from #900, and we all know what has been promo'd for that! Its a fun time to be a Spider-Man fan! Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Jimmy Hayes Jun 8, 2022

    A fantastic chapter in the current storyline. Moves things forward, and keeps you engrossed in what's going on. The summer comic book landscape is rapidly becoming a little cramped, don't let this excellent book get lost in the shuffle!!! Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Jun 8, 2022

    Romita Jr delivers some beautifully detailed and dark art that perfectly captures the tone and tension of the story. All of the close up shots of Tombstone give the character the weight and terror he deserves. Read Full Review

    The Comicbook Dispatch - Dispatchdcu Jun 8, 2022

    The Amazing Spider-Man #3 continues Wells & Romita Jr.'s streak of delivering strong issues. With an in-depth look at what makes Tombstone tick, Wells shows his knack for developing complex characters. The creative team of Romita Jr., Hanna, and Menyz continues to deliver solid and consistent results, though no one will accuse them of being the best team in comics today. Overall, this is a great chapter that helps to build the tension before Legacy Issue #900. Read Full Review

    Weird Science Marvel Comics - mrgabehernandez Jun 8, 2022

    Bits and PiecesAmazing Spider-Man reminds readers why tombstone is a formidable and dangerous presence in Spider-Man's world. Snared in Tombstone's trap, readers get interesting details about the villain's history and a clear picture of the lengths he'll go to keep what belongs to him. There are a few art oddities, and the shocking moments from issue #1 are still ignored, but this is a hard-hitting issue overall. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Jun 8, 2022

    The Amazing Spider-Man #3 is another frustrating read for the series. Hindsight is 20/20, and when this is collected it may read well, but it's trying the reader's patience with so little detail on what the mystery could even be. Read Full Review

    This Amazing Spider-Man comic still looks good, but I don't feel like the story has gone anywhere all that interesting quite yet. Read Full Review

    This arc is reminding me that Tombstone can be scary af when you mess with his business, damn. I'm having a lot of fun with this new run, JrJr art here is a little weaker than the previous 2 issues but just as always, his narrative skills are just impecabble, this man is a brilliant storyteller. I love what Zeb is putting Peter through here, he's clearly not at his best mentally and physically so Tombstone basically has him at the palm of his hands.

    I honestly have no idea what Peter will do to solve this mess, poor man can never catch a break xD but that's why we love him right? he never catches a break, but he'll always get back up and and try to make things right.

    I really like the way Tombstone is written here. Hes one of the more underrated of spideys villains but hes one of the more intimidating. This issue has some nice setup and strong dialogue, and it leaves spider man in a losing state for the entire issue, one he doesn't have an out for just yet. Its a nice touch. 3 issues in I feel like this story has used its pages well.

    I'm really liking this. It's good. I've reread previous issues and they are better than I reviewed them at first.

    And hey, no missleading cover, eh? That wasn't so hard, was it Lowe?

    But JRJR's art thou. I started rereading his and JMS' run and my grodd was his art so much better back then...

    I really like Tombstone, and how he's portrayed so far in this series. This whole issue makes you feel the dread but, I keep feeling like we need to get to this mystery of what happened.

    Not perfect.
    But not the "OMG this is awful, bring back the Peter-MJ marriage". Yawnn.

    This was a fun read, the first three issues together are telling a good story. I am liking where the book is going. And enjoying the story it's telling.

    John romita jr, was born to draw Spider-Man, it the place his art looks best.

    Better art, decent story. Don't care that Spidey is locked in cuffs. It serviced the story. If every hero got out of every situation immediately it would completely defeat the purpose of the tension the writer is trying to create. I'm chocking it up to he just got beaten, after being in the hospital and he's not at 100%. Makes enough sense to me. Didn't much care when we were kids because we knew the villain was going to give some monologue. This was decent, served the story. That's all that matters at the end of the day. What is being said, not "Why didn't Spider-Man just break the cuffs and beat up all of the bad guys?!"

    This issue is just fine as usual. It's not bad, but its not mindblowingly amazing. the art isnt as good (maybe the coloring), and how is Spider-Man restrained by chains when he can lift up to 10 tons? Are those chains made up of adamantium? It still peaks my interest, and I'm just along for the ride.

    Surely better than Issue 2, but I'm still extremely confused. How is Peter locked by simple handcuffs? He should be able to completely destroy them and kick all of Tombstone's goons in the face. I liked Lonnie's memory tale (and I think it's a new side of it that was never shown) and the glimpse into Randy and Janice's vacation. But that's it. Romita's art is the worst I've seen since the first Issue (I'm a big fan) and Tombstone's plan is stupid, considering he looked perfectly fine with Randy dating his daughter. Paul paying Peter's bills? Convenient, but I think that mystery is going to be a loooooong storyline. In the end, I have very mixed feelings. Hope I can express this without some genius reviewer coming here telling me not to read more

    This comic is not good.

    I like Zeb Wells. I like Spider-Man. I like Zeb Wells’ Spider-Man prior to this run but something just isn’t clicking. With these three issues, I am not at all convinced ASM was deserving of a relaunch.

    In retrospect, Beyond is looking good and Spencer’s run is looking like a masterpiece.

    C’mon, Zeb, turn it around!

    I guess I'm just having a hard time dealing with how easy Spider-Man was beaten by Tombstone. Unless they are going to explain a big strength upgrade I don't get it. Spider-Man would be dead by now if Tombstone who is much weaker beats him by putting him in a bear hug. The rest of the story can do whatever it wants, but it doesn't work for me knowing him getting beaten so easily doesn't really make any sense. How has he survived against so many more dangerous villains yet fucking Tombstone does a WWE move on him and actually beats him with it. Give Spider-Man the respect he fucking deserves!
