    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
