    Romita Jr. delivers some visually stunning art throughout this issue. The visuals perfectly match the tension, terror and danger of the story as it moves both stories along to their surprising conclusions. Read Full Review

    Amazing Spider-Man #4 is a captivating issue that makes you appreciate the pure badassery of Tombstone as a main villain. The art is excellent, the pacing is energetic, the action is powerful, and the twist reveal is a pleasant surprise. Read Full Review

    The Amazing Spider-Man is delivering a version of Peter Parker that reads as essential while elevating his supporting cast and some of the most clearly underrated villains in a large roster Spidey comics don't get much better than this. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Jun 22, 2022

    Amazing Spider-Man #4 is a satisfying issue thanks to the story paying off the slow build of the last two issues. We still may be in the dark when it comes to the big mystery, but it's satisfying to see Spider-Man overcome impossible odds and yet continue to be down on his luck. We wouldn't have it any other way. Read Full Review

    An all action issue plays to the strengths of the creative team. The writing is centered on the characters, and the art shows that Spider-Man truly is a force to be reckoned with. Well worth picking up. Read Full Review

    Zeb Wells you beatiful bastard, this was awesome! Everything i hoped he was going to deliver in Beyond is happening here, and to think this is just the beginning...wow. Also, JrJr action sequences were awesome, which is nothing new, it's JrJr after all. I think my only "problem" so far is that the MJ subplot although shocking at first, is becoming really uninteresting very fast, specially compared to what is happening with Tombstone, but that's just a minor nitpick and it's still too early to have a concrete opinion on this, this is a perfect issue in my book, loved it!

    Now this, this is what Spider-Man is supposed to be: pushing past extraordinary odds to wrestle with two crises in two parts of the city because maybe he can't win, but he definitely can't give up — only to find that even when he wins he loses. And the twist with Tombstone is classic Zeb Wells, no one does villains like he does. JRJR has his good moments and his bad moments, but he holds it together as well as he ever does these days. On balance, this run is everything I hoped it would be

    "something something, this comic sucks because MJ and Peter not married and OMD not undone, something something"

    In all honesty, this was great. Like really great. Wells' run has been growing on me and this proves that he could have what it takes to makes this truly memorable, in a good way.

    I just love the job that Wells is doing, is amazing. Besides the controversies taht this run is having, I'm happy with it. The plot is good, I like Tombstone, Wells writes him very well and he's a good villain, and what a plot twist! I didn't see that coming, which is difficult in a world where everything has been told. The other characters are good too, specially Peter and the couple. The tension in all the issue, I loved it, so good writing, and the art too. Jr Jr is in an awesome moment, better than his last works in DC. Hyped for the end of the arc, it's going to be great for sure.

    I actually really do enjoy this issue. Art is a lot better, action is dynamic and I like the plot twist of Spider-Man doing Tombstone's work for him. It was really good.

    Well... Hahahaha ok ok! I have to say I kinda dig this. Tombstone literally made The Rose look like a giant wimp. And Peter did his dirty work without even knowing it. Romita got back to his best after a bad issue and this took me back to the best JMS stories (with Spidey hanging from the ceiling and kicking The Rose's goons right in the face). I'm kinda lost as to how Tombstone was able to get Spider-Man literally under a Rose hideout without him noticing a single thing, but I guess this is what it is. And thank God Tombstone is actually changed and he wasn't really trying to kill Robbie or Randy, because that would have been a slap to Nick Spencer's run! The MJ-Felicia angle was ok, we still don't know enough to judge.
