    Comic Watch - Dustin Gebel Aug 24, 2022

    The Amazing Spider-Man #8 is a comic firing on all cylinders, taking a lackluster previous issue and performing a total 360 with the craft inside. From Wellss script to Romita Jr.s art and Caramanagas art, the issue doesnt miss a beat and anchors itself in a strong narrative core that could center the aimless title going forward. Along with strong innovations in the art and lettering effects that fill the book, this issue is a great place to jump on for Spider-Man fans unhappy with the book thus far. With the next arc of the title building to a crossover with the X-Men, including some mutants that Wells wrote in a much more consistent title, itll have to be seen if Wells and the creative team can carry the momentum of this issue forward.

    The Amazing Spider-Man #8 reflects perhaps the most essential quality for any creators tackling the title in 2022: making the familiar feel fresh once again. Read Full Review

    COMICON - Tony Thornley Aug 29, 2022

    The creative team has won me over. This is a story rooted in its characters, and both the writing and the art reflect that. After a rough start, this volume is headed back in the right direction. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Aug 24, 2022

    Romita Jr delivers some great, visually brutal action in this issue. The art gives a great sense of scale as Peter and Vulture move throughout the heights of the city. Read Full Review

    Final ThoughtsAn okay issue that serves to get Peter into place for the next arc as he upgrades his gear with some help from Norman Osborn. There's definitely no way this could go wrong, right? Read Full Review

    Weird Science Marvel Comics - mrgabehernandez Aug 24, 2022

    Amazing Spider-Man #8 takes a baby step forward by concluding the conflict with Vulture in one, issue-long fight. The fight is brutal, and readers get the reveal of the "new Spidey suit enhanced with Goblin tech, but the fight choreography has a few flaws, and the emoji mask is eye-rolling. Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Aug 27, 2022

    This has been a perfectly adequate Spider-Man comic so far. This issue teases some neat developments going forward, but for now, it's just kinda neat to see in practice. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Aug 24, 2022

    If you dig Spidey fights, pick up Amazing Spider-Man #8. Seeing Spidey and Vulture go at it in the sky the old-school way is a delight. Aside from that, there are no new answers and not much else to cling to for enjoyment. Read Full Review

    Amazing Spider-Man continues to be a really fun title. Not a ton happens storywise until the tail end of the issue, and that isn't so bad, because the bulk of this issue is a really engaging fight/chase between Spider-Man and the Vulture. The art team and the letterer really make a tense scene even more impactful with an expertly crafted moment. The implications of Norman's actions and words in this issue set up what could be a very interesting arc for the character, which is where this run could very possibly shine most. The new suit looks a bit janky to me, but I'm not fretting over it too much. I want to see Gleason's version of it, as he is the one who designed it. I'm sure it'll last until Dark Web, anyways. Also, I guess I have to cat more

    The art could've been better for such a visually focused issue, but other than that this was good. I enjoyed Spider-Man's quips and I appreciated how refreshingly light and breezy the whole thing felt.

    Solid issue. Good action, good emotion, just really lacking any major plot progression. I had fun though.

    Man, can poor Peter Parker get put through much more? I feel like I reading 24 MEETS MCU, only there's no Jack Bauer! I feel like Peter needs a puppy! Jus' sayin'.

    It's interesting. Such an odd, but interesting route for this character to take.

    And I am enjoying it.

    This a really really good Spider-Man run so far, still has some mysteries going, and is doing a good job of keeping me entertained. It's changed up the status quo with some good writing, and some great takes on the villains.

    We all know him making peace with Norman Osborne will not last long, but it's always nice to see Peter give someone the benefit of the doubt. It's who he is, no matter how many times that person stabs them in the back. He's going to give them another chance.

    Enjoyable shenanigans. I like this run but It's not breaking any new grounds. Enjoyable for now.

    As with last issue, I’m excited at the prospect of the new Pete/Norman dynamic but this issue is all action but little substance. Looks great but moves the ball up one yard.

    Still not sold on this. At all. It's always 50/50 good and terrible. I love the art, but the story is meh: I can't take this Norman storyline seriously, not after what he did to Peter, Gwen and MJ in the past. And I can't believe he's free after all his crimes and being locked up in Ravencroft less than a year ago. Why and how is he running a new Oscorp? Also, why is Peter so damn weak suddenly? He can't beat Vulture without a new high tech suit by the Green Goblin? Also, what was the point of this Vulture story? Did Peter actually sell him to Tiana? And if he didn't, why didn't he tell Toomes? Why do I always have 100 questions after every single issue?

    Dialogue didn't seem as on here in the first half but the latter was what I like to see from Spider-Man. Introspective and communicating with his villains. It's what makes him so likeable. The biggest detractor is Romita's artwork. It's just bad. Extremely flat, backgrounds almost non-existent leaving the colorist to just slap a tone in the back to attempt to give it life and depth. I like the idea of Spidey on a glider using Goblin-tech. It's a really cool idea that I am surprised I haven't seen before. But it shouldn't be Romita doing it. Patrick Gleason had a way better design and is a much better artist. He didn't get to do enough issues of Beyond and that is a shame. Like this book. Just kind of a shame.

    This comic is going in the wrong direction! Any interest/ramifications from "the big event six months ago" is neutered by Peter acting normally and suffering no obvious harm other than his status with MJ. By now, who cares what that event was? Ditto with MJ and her new family - which has to be either a big retcon or an alternate universe version of her. As to this issue: falling from miles in the air and landing without any impact, webbing notwithstanding? Didn't Gwen die from the impact of being snatched out of the air from a much shorter distance? And steering the Vulture directly into Osborn's office from all of NYC? And putting on a new suit and miraculously recovering from his bruised/broken ribs? And all supervillains in this series j more
