    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

    COMICON - Tony Thornley Aug 12, 2022

    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
