SPIDER-MAN'S FIRST HUNT! The hunter is now the prey. Can Kraven survive?
Rated T

  • 9.0 - Chase Magnett Sep 6, 2023

    Amazing Spider-Man #33 (already a notable number) lays out an enormous feat for the story ahead as it seeks to rival a piece of the Spider-Man canon but the tact and skill displayed in this set up makes that feat seem entirely achievable. This may be the best story yet in an already excellent run. Read Full Review

    A lack of confidence provokes desperate measures, and a heros failure returns to haunt him in Amazing Spider-Man #33. Read Full Review

    Gleason delivers fantastic visual atmosphere in this issue. Every page is an exercise in building suspense. Every sequence works perfectly with the tone of the story and the darkness of the plot. Read Full Review

    Spider-Man couldn't be scarier, thanks to the creative team here. New York couldn't be in more trouble, and it makes for a hell of a read. Read Full Review

    Weird Science Marvel Comics - mrgabehernandez Sep 6, 2023

    Amazing Spider-Man #33 replays a modern version of Kraven's Last Hunt with Spidey and Kraven II in reversed roles for a decently intense comic. Gleason's art is on point, and the issue ends with a strong cliffhanger. That said, this issue is an almost point-for-point remake of Kraven's Last Hunt, so you're better off reading the original, superior version. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Sep 6, 2023

    The Amazing Spider-Man #35 reads like a good one-shot homage to Kraven's Last Hunt, but there isn't much meat on the bones. Visually, it's stunning, with cool callbacks and dark moments, but none of this is tethered to the character's internal struggle or motivations. It's a loud response as Spider-Man loses himself, but to what end? Read Full Review

    So happy to be enjoying this book again. This is a complete 180 for Zeb Wells. I've actually put ASM back on my pull list. I was reading the books online and going back to find the issues I liked and picking them up for cost instead of pre-ordering them and getting my discount. I've got so many holes in my Wells run lol. Many people mistakenly think people WANT to hate comics but that's not really the case. If it's shit we're gonna call it shit...and there is a lot of shit being produced these days. Much of THIS book became shit for quite a while. Your not being miserable if you review many new comics as such. This is a review site after all right? When you've been reading for 40 years you are passionate about the hobby and want to s more

    This was a super fun issue. It feels like everyone's operating at high capacity here. It feels like the editorial side of things have finally let the reigns go a bit. The rapid pace at which things not only have gotten better qualitatively, but also reversed within the comic itself, leads me to believe that a lot of what we got during the first year of this run was not what Wells wanted to be doing, and was more editorially driven. The nitpick here, and for now it is just a nitpick, is that the pacing may be too fast. We aren't getting a ton in the way of plot or story so far.

    That was ruthless, so much fun, and a great homage all at the same time.

    Exactly how you want Peter to act after what happened last issue. If you like Angry black suit Spider-Man going to town. You will enjoy this.

    If not 🤷‍♂️ it's not what I want for 50 issues of spidey but 5-10 ya it's an awesome arc, best since the first one.

    This was a really well crafted homage issue of ASM. The first issue in a while I can say I truly enjoyed.

    After the super intriguing setup we saw in the previous issue, this book dives right into the darker direction that was teased in Issue 32's cliffhanger and I think it works very well. This is very much about Peter basically getting revenge for what happened between him and Kraven during Kraven's Last Hunt. My favorite part of this had to be the final few pages, as it was just a crazy way to leave things off until the next issue. All things considered, I really like the darker direction this book is taking and I think it's really revitalized the title after a long period of mixed feelings.

    The previous issue’s cliffhanger saw Kraven attack Spider-Man with a demonically possessed spear and an ominous transformation, originally meant to awake the Green Goblin inside Norman Osborn, began manifesting inside Peter. It was a strong start to this new arc and Zeb Wells continues to rehab the webslinger’s marquee series with a strong follow-up in AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #33.

    Wells opens the issue with a short time jump and a haunting in look at what’s going on inside Peter’s mind as he wrestles with his new mindset, as well as a look at Norman and Kraven’s own internal conflicts. Wells writes compelling dialogue for all three characters speaking with their own inner demons. You feel like you’re witnessing three char more
