    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Jul 6, 2022

    Romita Jr delivers some beautifully detailed and impressive panels throughout the issue. Not only are the Spider-Man moments visually thrilling, but the character moments are impressive as well. Read Full Review

    The first arc of Wells and Romita Jr.'s Amazing Spider-Man wraps just in time for issue #900 to drop, and it feels like there's never been a better time to be a reader. Read Full Review

    The StoryThe Amazing Spider-Man #5 wraps up the first arc of his run of the series.  While Tombstones story has been entertaining, it hasnt supplied any answers to the big questions posed in the first issue.  Readers still dont have any idea of why Peter is on everyones bad side, what he did to get there, or whats going on with Mary Jane. Wells does start to reverse some of these dynamics, with the appearance of Black Cat and how Peter has grown over the last five issues, but its too much of a slow burn.  Too many questions, and not enough answers.

    AIPT - David Brooke Jul 6, 2022

    Amazing Spider-Man #5 wraps up the first story arc with a story about Peter Parker's smarts. It's also a reminder that Spider-Man gets in his own way, but when he's having a little fun things go better for him and the reader. Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Jul 9, 2022

    This opening storyline ends with a bit of a whimper, storywise. The writing and art are really fun and enjoyable, but they were put into service with a very basic, uninspired plot. Read Full Review

    Weird Science Marvel Comics - mrgabehernandez Jul 6, 2022

    Amazing Spider-Man #5 concludes the arc with a shockingly unsatisfying finale. The multiple bombshells dropped in the first issue are all but forgotten, Romita Jr's art is becoming more distorted with each issue, and any of the dramatic tension Wells successfully created in the last few issues is entirely gone with a relaxed and dialog-heavy chapter. It's hard to imagine a worse possible ending for a first arc from a new creative team. Read Full Review
