    It's another killer issue in what's gearing up to be a genuinely iconic run for the amazing Spider-Man. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Aug 10, 2022

    John Romita Jr delivers some beautifully detailed art in the issue. There is a lot of emotion in the story and the art conveys that really well. I was impressed with the action as well. Read Full Review

    This is exactly the sort of issue this volume needed. It's a fun soap opera and the art looks great. It's just the Spider-Man story we need. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Aug 10, 2022

    Amazing Spider-Man #7 is starting to pull back the curtain on what Peter did, but we're still mostly in the dark. Visually the best scenes continue to be when Spider-Man's in costume, but if you can stay patient, there's a compelling story here to continue to explore. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Dustin Gebel Aug 10, 2022

    The Amazing Spider-Man #7 is another lifeless entry into the multi-year, multi-run wheel spinning of Peter Parker. Between a script and storyline that feels like bait for more interesting stories and loosely defined status quos for characters, the issue is only saved thanks to Romita Jr.s excellent pencils and sequential storytelling. With Dark Web only a few issues away, the crossover will be a make or break for this run. It can still deliver by finding its footing and delivering a compelling story to match the art, but based on the previous entries into The Amazing Spider-Man, that seems more unlikely with every issue. Theres almost no instance where this issue can be recommended, other than to enjoy the Romita Jr. art and layouts, but the story, characters, and tensions all leave a lot to be desired.

    Weird Science Marvel Comics - mrgabehernandez Aug 10, 2022

    Amazing Spider-Man #7 enters into a new arc with Wells doing what Wells seems to do best, reinvigorate villains. This time, Vulture gets his moment to shine, and it's a doozy. That said, Wells's weakness lies in showing consequences and aftermaths to events you never see or are explained, so Vulture's motivations are suspect. In short, a deadly Vulture battling Spider-Man is a sight to behold, but the poor setup in the writing hinders more than it helps. Read Full Review

    A back-to-basics story that suffers under a totally mismatched art style. Read Full Review

    This was a very strong issue. There's a lot of ground being laid here. We finally get MJ and Peter truly interacting for the first time in this run, and it manages to keep the mystery afloat without being annoying more than intriguing. This is something that Spencer's run had plenty of trouble with. Add another little mark on the chart of differentiation between this run and Spencer's.

    Zeb Wells continues to play with continuity. I don't say that as in he's colorfully retconning things in a fun way, but rather that he's simply using the continuity as it is. Vulture's granddaughter learning about his villainy was not something I ever thought would matter, least of which in the Amazing title, but it actually serves as a really enga more

    Oof, that was brutal. I was afraid that the mystery would spread a lot, but we are seeing it little by little, that's good, and yeah, the script is good too, and the interactions. I like what Wells (and Spencer) is doing with Norman, he needed a change. And the vulture, oooooh man, that's the best part. I'm seeing that Wells is very good in the villains stuff, and this issue is an example. Now he's not just a villain, he's just sad and angry for what happened with the only person he had. Good, very good. Also, after the break of Jr Jr in the last issue, he is back doing the art as well as before.

    Most interesting issue of this run. At least it goes somewhere.

    It's good but these issues nowadays read much better as tpb or at least 2 or 3. Romita Jr Hanna and Menyz are about the same so it's consistent whether you like or not. I like it although I would take McGuiness in a heart beat.

    I cant help but be really interested. The mystery thickens and the story is still interesting.

    Not much to say here other than I'm intrigued. I'm lot letting the hanging mystery bog me down, I'm just enjoying the ride. Nice to see Peter and MJ talk for once, get a little more into whatever happened, see more of his connection to Norman. Groundwork stuff. Not the most compelling, action packed issue but necessary to get us where Wells is taking us.

    It's not bad by any means. It's pretty solid, it's just disappointing there's not much plot to make it feel important.

    To be clear, Vulture part was interesting and what i really want about him, parker and norman relationship also was fine, but itself this issue just set up hooks for a future stories.

    I'm really confused. At every page I'm like "hey this is interesting" and then immediately "the hell am I reading?". So Paul and Peter got in a fight? Norman is free and he's rebuilding Oscorp, even if he was locked in a asylum mere months ago? Peter is working with him? And I'm even more lost on that Vulture storyline. I can't do anything but follow this, hoping Zeb Wells will prove me wrong... but I'm very disappointed in this new run, for now.

    Huh.

    No really, that's all I have to say about this comic. Not because it's bad, disappointing or anything like that (like #900 was), it's just... I have nothing else to say about it. So I'm going to continue telling how little I have to say about this.

    Everything here works... ish. Sure the mystery is there, so if that's not your cup of tea, this issue might anger you more than it did me. For me? It was... fine.

    But likewise, this issue isn't great like thefirst 5 issues turned out to be, but then again, only after re-reading them I grew to like the arc more. Maybe the same will happen with this one.

    I find the idea that Peter would have ANYTHING to do with Osborn, who killed Gwen Stacy, ludicrous. And he's going to work for him? Spidey may be jumping the shark here.
