    The only thing better than the chaos found throughout The Amazing Spider-Man is the storylines bound to unfold from these introductions as things get very hectic by the final page. Read Full Review

    Not much here, more of a setup for next month's big battle between Peter and Ben. (The cover looks incredible) Read Full Review

    Amazing Spider-Man #47 boasts a few intriguing developments, a sweet date, and a follow-up to the Hobgoblin debacle from earlier in Wells's run. That said, the mostly action-free issue keeps hinting at a mystery without expanding on it, and the trio team-up of Queen Goblin, Chasm, and Hallow's Eve lacks gravitas or drama. Read Full Review

    Yall just whining about anything at this point.

    This was a good issue. Literally nothing wrong with it.

    Plot
    Peter unknowingly has an appointment with Nurse Shay, who was treating Aunt Anna, but this meeting was arranged by Aunt behind her back, but as always Peter has other obligations and must leave early, because Betty Brant asks him for help. .has a clue that can help Ned get out of jail.

    In this place Betty gets the Winkler Device, a device that washed Ned's mind, but they are interrupted by Chasm and Hallow's Eve, more uncontrolled and unpredictable than ever, so a battle is about to begin.

    This installment serves to introduce new villains in this new stage of Peter's more tangled life, however he does not reveal much of what is coming or happening.

    Art
    It has that tone of the 1990s comics, but more

    Okay this was actually really good. I might be giving a higher score than it deserves but for what ASM has been, this is a nice return to something I'm used to in Spider-Man. Peter getting set up with someone new, having decent chemistry, having to run out on them, actually saving people, helping his friends and fingers crossed we get some decent characterization for Ben in the next few issues before issue 50 puts everything on the back burner. Also a fan of Todd Nauck here. I really wish he would be a recurring artist rather than a guest. He's miles ahead of JRJR. That cover is GARBAGE.

    I liked this but I'm not very convinced that Wells will stick the landing since he couldn't land the last arc. Or Gang War. Todd Nauck's art is... competent. It's not something I want to see on ASM, if I'm honest.

    A bit of a step-up from the previous issue, in my opinion. I was really liking Carmen Carnero's art in the last two issues, but Nauck does a pretty nice job here as well. I'd definitely prefer him on the book than John Romita Jr. right now. Aside from the art, the story was engaging as well. There wasn't anything particularly unique or groundbreaking about it, but it was entertaining for what it was. Hopefully the ending the sticks the landing in the next issue.

    IDK. I love me some new IP's but Chasm is just a re-skinned Spidey and Hallows Eve looks too much like Hobgoblin to really qualify in my book. Feels like Miles and Kamala syndrome. The goblin Queen is....yet another Goblin and I'm really sick and tired of arrested development Peter. This isn't a bad issue and is in fact one of the better issues of late, but I'm just too checked out at this point to really care. Every issue feels like we're on a hamster wheel that needs oil. The art was nice to look at I guess.

    This issue was definitely a mixed bag for me. Peter’s date with Shay did nothing for me & I found the Betty storyline quite boring. Don’t get me wrong, a breather issue with some Peter Parker slice-of-life can be enjoyable, but in this case, it felt like it came at the expense of more pressing matters.

    We’ve barely seen much of Ben Reilly’s return, a development that should have been a major focus given where this new arc is headed. Hallow’s Eve hasn’t really resonated w/ me, nor does she feel like a serious threat, so the relationship between these two doesn’t offer quite the stakes that it’s trying to convey.

    Adding to the issue’s questionable plot construction is the Goblin Queen’s reveal. Her p more

    This issue wasn't as bad as usual, but the status quos of Mary Jane and Ben Reilly are still very frustrating and leave a bad taste, even if the story is more compelling than usual.

    I still don't get why Spider-Man and the X-Men didn't give Ben his memories back in Dark Web like they did for Madelyne Pryor. It's such a big plot hole that it makes the Chasm stuff seem really forced.

    I actually didn't hate this one. Nothing really special, but kind of interesting?

    Good art, would have given the story a better rating if I didn't have to see Paul anymore.

    Thought things couldn’t get worse after gang war, but things thing seemed all over the place.

    Glad JRJR isn’t doing the in book art at the moment, if we can get him off the covers too that would be outstanding.

    I’m sorry but I can’t buy MJ and Peter being this chummy already when the dude was going to propose to her and she just gets with another guy.

    Hallows Eve was a creative idea but it feels like Lowe and Wells are acting like Oprah and just giving everyone powers.
