    Final ThoughtsThe Amazing Spider-Man Annual #1 gives readers a peek inside New York City's exclusive Limbo Embassy, an invitation to Anna Watson's B-Earth Day party, and a haunting look at Ravencroft Institute. While Spider-Man seems more incidental than central, the stories explore the edges of his world and hint at possible future events. Read Full Review

    Shaw delivers some fun and bright visuals throughout the issue. The art and its style are perfect for these characters and the tone of the story. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Christopher Franey Aug 2, 2023

    Amazing Spider-Man Annual 2023 hits all the right notes as the leading players intersect. Hallows' Eve is getting the perfect voice to tell Spider-Man she is tired of him dragging her down and preventing her happiness. The Fall of X hits Spidey's world harshly, and MJ is dealing with her run of bad events. Spider-Man's world just can't escape that Parker Luck. Read Full Review

    Not every annual is a must-read. By injecting the larger universe into Spidey's world, two engaging stories pushed from "one-shot side story into an engaging part of the entire tapestry. Read Full Review

    Weird Science Marvel Comics - mrgabehernandez Aug 2, 2023

    Amazing Spider-Man Annual #1 (2023) repeats last year's annual by turning in a jokey, silly story about nothing when Hallows' Eve tries to break Ben Reilly out of NYC's demon embassy prison. The slapstick tone and cartoonish art are fine in isolation but strangely out of place for the main title. The backup serves as a potentially interesting epilogue to this year's Hellfire Gala, but it gets the details of the Gala wrong. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Tyler Davis Aug 9, 2023

    The Amazing Spider-Man Annual #1features solid enough characterization, but fails to have any sort of impact both in its narrative, art, or any form of character work. It serves its purpose as filler entertainment, but it has nothing going for it outside of that aside from the development of more weird and uninteresting plot lines for Mary Jane. Read Full Review

    Super Hero Hype - Matt Morrison Aug 3, 2023

    The 2023 Amazing Spider-Man Annual can be easily skipped by most Spider-Man fans. Those seeking a continuation of the stories of Hallows' Eve and Fall of X will enjoy it, but there is very little Spider-Man to be seen. A larger problem is the overall uneven level of quality between the two stories. Read Full Review

    This annual touches on interesting elements running through Marvel Comics today, but doesn't contribute anything substantial to them in terms of style or story. Read Full Review
